Day 4 of the Fabric HQ Blog Hop Giveaway

Posted on October 09, 2014 by Rae | 97 comments

This competition is over - thank you to all who entered.  Check out the next post to see who won!

So here it is - the day we've been waiting for.  Today we give all you lovely readers the chance to win £100 of fabric to celebrate the launch of our brand-spanking new website!



It's been a pretty crazy couple of months here at Fabric HQ, what with the launch of our new shop and the Make HQ studio at Layby Farm, Jacqui moving to Buckinghamshire and, of course, the launch of our lovely new website which we're chuffed to bits with.  We've had an influx of people wishing us well and letting us know how much they love our new space as well as the new website.  I still have a grin from ear to ear every time someone walks in for the first time and pretty much lights up with excitement. We've also had so much support from people too far away to come visit the new shop but who have taken the time to get in touch and tell us what they think of the new website.  It means a lot to us and so what better way to say thank you to everyone than to have a good old giveaway.


So be nice and spread the word to all those other fabric addicts you know....  Here's how to enter:

Take a peek at our website and browse through the fabric by collection and then come back here and leave a comment on this post telling us which is your favourite.


A few things to remember....

  • you must be in the UK or Europe
  • leave one comment on this post for a single entry
  • sign up to the Fabric HQ mailing list (found at the bottom of the website http://www.fabrichq.co.uk/) for a second entry (and come back here and leave a second comment on this post to say you've signed up.  If you've already signed up that's great - just let us know with another comment here.
  • Make sure we can get in touch by leaving us your email address on the post or make sure your account is linked to an email


It’s that easy! We will pick a winner at random next Thursday 16th October. Good luck everyone!


Be sure to visit Flossieteacakes tomorrow for the last day of our blog hop giveaway.
