Cucire

I am so excited to tell you about my friend's new fabric shop, CucireElizabeth and I are both members of the KCMQG, and she is adorable and funny and makes beautiful quilts.



Elizabeth describes her new shop as "a carefully curated collection of high quality threads, fine fabrics, and sewing notions." Cucire (pronouned coo-CHEER-uh) is an Italian word meaning 'to sew'. Italians are known for their fashion and commitment to high quality goods, perfect inspiration for a fabric retail shop!

To help celebrate her grand opening, she has Art Gallery Solids on sale for $8 a yard through June 1st! She has a great selection of voiles, shot cottons, grunge, and solids, with jersey knits coming soon. Don't forget the thread - she has a large variety, including Aurifil, which is my favorite.  Plus a notions section too!


She also has a special giveaway for you guys!

There are 4 fat quarters of Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Four Square Voile, 1 large spool of 50 wt. white Aurifil thread, and a package of titnium-coated topstitch needles from Superior Threads in size 70/10.


Have you sewed with voile before? It is so soft. Just lovely.


Aurifil 50 weight is perfect for sewing and quilting. You will love it. I promise. :)

OK, the details. Please use the rafflecopter widget to record your entries. Just leaving a blog comment doesn't enter you to win. US shipping only (sorry!) The lucky winner will be drawn in one week, and notified by email.

A big thanks to Elizabeth for such a great giveaway! Be sure to like Cucire on facebook to hear about sales and new fabrics!
