Happy Mochi Yum Yum Fabric Giveaway to Celebrate My New Website! CLOSED

 
The Giveaway Winner can choose between a Fat Quarter Bundle of Happiness (14 FQs) or Good Luck(15 FQs).  Designed by the delicious Monica at Happy Zombie.

But to begin with I have been so excited about telling you about my new and exciting website, TheFabricMarketplace.com a place to buy and sell all things fabric.

There is no listing fee so along with my previous posts about 'free' fabric stock and what makes to sell you can truly start an online fabric related business within a niche marketplace without spending a bean!

What's so great about niche?  Because it's only fabric related there is no getting lost amongst handmade items such as jewellery or hand thrown pottery or even used cars and fridge freezers on auction websites.

And it's not just for selling fabric pieces, other fabric (sewing) related categories include:
  • Sewing Patterns
  • Sewing Books/Magazines
  • Haberdashery
  • Handmade Goods
  • Vintage Clothing
  • Vintage Fabric
  • Sewing Machines
Maybe you already have a small fabric related business and sell elsewhere but looking for an alternative online marketplace with free listing and fabric specific, in which case please give TheFabricMarketplace.com a try.

On to my Giveaway, I would be really grateful if you could spread the word about my new website by doing any of the following, giving you up to 3 chances to win:

ENTRY 1:  Blog about my Giveaway and new website, leave a comment.

ENTRY 2. Tweet about my Giveaway, leave a comment.

ENTRY 3.  Add a button to your web page.  Simply copy the HTML code below and in your Blogger account choose 'layout', click 'add gadget', choose 'html' and in the blank box paste the code and save.  Leave a comment confirming you have a button on your website.

TheFabricMarketplace.com

Thank you so much if you have done any of the above, I really appreciate you spreading the word.  Good Luck with the Giveaway!

The Giveaway will close 10pm BST Wednesday 27th July 2011 and a Winner will be picked at random soon after that.
I just want to give a quick mention to thank all my lovely Beta User volunteers who gave me some fantastic feedback:
Sally at Ditzy and Dotty
Linnhe Mara
Erica
Amber H.
Sarah@PingsAndNeedles 
Ali at veryberryhandmade
Jenny at Jenny Arnott textiles

And thank you to the Erin at ErinBradleyDesigns, Etsy who designed my fantastic logo/banner.

Thank you, as always, for dropping by.

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.  Winner will be announced in the next day or so.  Many thanks for taking part.

Hello Emma! I'm happy I found you from Sarah! This new site is really wonderful idea! I have logged in but in affiliate it didn't accept my postal code (73100). I shall add your button to my blog and I shall tell also about you and your site in my futher post, unfortunately it's going to be too late for your giveaway. I hope you count me in!

Hi Emma,

Just found it by chance. What a wonderful idea for a web site. I love it! Your works are gorgeous!
Immediately saved to my favorites.

Since I don’t have a site, a blog, or Twitter, I added myself as a follower. Also, I wrote a post in a Hebrew Quilting & Patchwork web forum which I belong to. Most quilters there are from Israel. You can see the post at: http://www.tapuz.co.il/Forums2008/ViewMsg.aspx?ForumId=2025&MessageId=154341604

Hope you count me in for the giveaway.

Thanks,
Chaya.

Emma Thomsen said...
