MCM #45 {Giveaway} Crushing on FWFS

Today I’m excited to share information with you about a fabulous online shop, Fort Worth Fabric Studio.


But first a little background story.

When I attended the Quilt Blogger’s Int’l Retreat a few weeks ago, a couple of the ladies asked me about the fabrics I used for the tote bags. When I said the pieces were part of a Friday Bundle from Fort Worth Fabric Studio, they said they had not heard of FWFS. Which made me wonder – how many of you have yet to discover this great online shop?

I love going to my local quilt shop to buy fabric and supplies. I especially like the interaction with the owners and ladies who work there. It’s very motivating to be in the same room as other quilters, talking about fabric choices and current projects.

But when the shop doesn’t have the fabric I want, I turn to online shopping. And when I am shopping online, I want the experience to be as fun and easy as going to my local shop. Fort Worth Fabric Studio is just that – a great online shopping experience.

I found FWFS a couple years ago, and really enjoy their selection of fabrics. They have a fabulous sale page. But my favorite thing they do each week is offer a Friday Bundle Batch. These are specially curated bundles and are available in fat quarters and half yard cuts.

A Sampling of Past Friday Bundle Batch Collections

So I reached out to Jodie, the owner of FWFS. She is a wonderfully sweet person who enthusiastically agreed to sponsor a giveaway for my readers. Just because. How cool is that??

I want you to get to know Jodie’s shop and enjoy her fabric selections as much as I do. Please take a minute to visit and browse through the shop as a thank you to Jodie. You might find something you just can’t live without! (This is NOT an affiliate link.)

The site is easy to navigate – you can shop by manufacturer, color, precuts, wide backings, etc. The Sale page is also a fun place to look around. I always find something there that has to come live with me! 🙂 While you’re there, do yourself a favor and sign up for the newsletter. Each Friday the newsletter will be delivered to your inbox with information on that day’s bundle and other fabulous deals.

Now for the giveaway and the reason for my crush!

On Friday, we will be giving one reader that day’s Friday Bundle Batch in Fat Quarters. Since the bundle isn’t released until Friday, I can’t show you the actual fabrics that are included. But I know they will be fabulous. We will all find out on Friday, together! I will draw for a winner at 5 pm EST on Friday.

Entering is easy. Just leave a comment on this post letting me know if you are an online shopper. (That’s how I do most of my Christmas shopping!)  Followers of this blog get a second entry by letting me know how you follow. And, as a bonus, if you sign up for the FWFS newsletter, come back and leave a comment letting me know.

Due to shipping costs, this giveaway is open to US residents only.

Now it’s your turn to share your crush! But first, let’s visit a couple from last week’s linky party.

Mel of Mel’s Quilting Blog is working on this pretty HST quilt. I love the scrappiness of it, and how big it is. She’s still making HST’s, so it’s going to get bigger!

Helen of Midget Gem Quilts is working on a Bubble quilt. These blocks are a variation of a log cabin block, but they look soooo cool put together this way. Lots of work has gone into the making of each of these blocks!

    I am an online shopper. I try to support my local businesses as much as possible but sometimes it is just easier to purchase online. You have a great selection of fabrics and I have purchased from you.

  12. sisylyn53 says:

    I am fairly new at quilting and usually purchase online because I am mot allowed to drive and can not get around without the help of a walker or wheel chair.

  16. Tracy says:

    Thanks for the shop info! I do probably 70% of my fabric (and gift) shopping online, as I just don’t have very many local options. (Thanks also for the cake recipe ~ sounds amazing!! (except the coke part, that just sounds a little weird 😉 but – I make apple dumplings with mountain dew, and they are always a hit!) I think I will make it for my husband to take for his next ‘goodie day’ at work)
    happy cooking 🙂

  17. Anita Barnthson says:

    I love FWFS and look forward to the Friday Bundles. Jodie has a great eye for the fabrics she puts in the bundle. One Friday I out a Bundle in the cart, hoping that I would not go back and it kept calling, but by the time I was back it had sold out. I dropped her a note that if she found any hiding, that I would like one. She added a different fabric for the piece that was sold out. She is really great . I am already subscribed as my pension check will tell you.

  18. Linda DiVall says:

    I’ve shopped with FWFS–their service is excellent. Their local for me—a friend of mine works their. Love their Friday fat quarter bundles!

    Huge fan of online shopping. I have no time to go to a store in person. I send my husband for groceries and I save the Target shopping for necessities and “necessities” for myself. Otherwise, I try to stick to online.

  29. Online shopping is so convenient unless color matching is super important. It also costs less. I do feel bad for not supporting more LQSs and buy a yard or two when I stop in now and then.

  30. Becky says:

    I do a LOT of shopping online…fabric, patterns, household items, books, Christmas presents…You name it, I’ve probably shopped for it online. It’s so easy and convenient. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  38. Kathy E. says:

    I follow Cooking Up Quilts on Bloglovin’!

  39. Kathy E. says:

    I find that I am shopping more and more online simply because we have only a JoAnn and Hobby Lobby here that sells fabric. I love being able to browse by color, designer, and theme!

  40. Michele says:

    I am already getting the FWFS newsletter via email…. they are awesome!!

  41. Michele says:

    I follow you via bloglovin!!

  42. Michele says:

    I live in a remote community in Northwestern Ontario, so online shopping is essential for many things other than fabrics and sewing related items.

  43. Jasmine says:

    I follow with Bloglovin. 🙂

  44. Jasmine says:

    I like to buy in person as well, but will shop online when I can’t find what I am looking for. (That pumpkin spice collection is darling!)

  45. carol n says:

    I shop online for my fabric and patterns, I am disabled and all the local quilt shops have steps. I will check out Fort Worth FS, thanks!

    I have only made a few purchases online. My husband’s favorite place to do any shopping is online.

  48. Vicki H says:

    I am a bloglovin follower.

  49. Vicki H says:

    I do some online shopping but like to support local businesses if possible.

  50. LeeAnn says:

    I buy a lot of my fabrics online. There are several shops I like (and follow on Instagram), and even more that I would love to buy from. Unless I buy all the fabrics from a specific line of fabric, I generally buy anything extra like the backing fabric from a local shop so I can hold up the fabrics together and see how they work together.

  51. Jen R says:

    Oh, and I already get the newsletter. 🙂 I love seeing what each Friday bundle is.

  52. Jen R says:

    I only shop online for fabric if I already know exactly what I am looking for. Or if I have seen it in person already. I like touching the fabric before I buy it. 🙂 Yes, I am that person that pets everything in the store.

  53. Susan says:

    Follow on Bloglovin!

  54. Susan says:

    Not much of an online shopper because I still like to see fabric in person, and because I’ve got too much fabric already!

  71. abeier71 says:

    I can’t say enough good things about Jodie and the staff at FWFS. She is great at what she does, and always goes the extra mile. The selection of fabrics there are outstanding, and the sales too. I try and buy from a LQS. However, there is only one, small one in our area. Whenever we travel, I go to the LQS. I really like to see the fabrics up close. Otherwise, I do buy online. Thanks for the opportunity.

  72. Paula says:

    I shop local most of the time, but with only 1 store nearby, I do order some things online. I’ve visited FWFS a few times, but I think I’ll check it out again. I have a couple of items I haven’t been able to find elsewhere and they may have them. Thanks for the giveaway.
