$100 Giveaway from Hart’s Fabric!

**UPDATE** Entries are closed. Thanks everyone for entering and the winner will be announced tomorrow!

I have an exciting announcement today, perfect for first thing Monday morning! Hart’s Fabric has generously offered a $100 gift certificate for their online store to one lucky Sewaholic reader! Isn’t this great timing? We’ve just been talking about where to buy fabric online, how close our nearest fabric stores are, and now here is a fabric giveaway for you guys to win!

To enter, take a look at the Hart’s Fabric website and tell us which fabrics get you excited for Spring sewing projects. I love when the seasons change and the fabric stock shifts from winter to spring. Cotton voiles, bright colours and pretty prints replace the dark and heavy fabrics – it’s always so refreshing!

Here’s what gets me excited for Spring sewing! Click any of the images to find out more about each fabric.

Remember this one, from the original post on buying fabric online? It’s still there! I love this silk-cotton polka dot lawn. Pretty silks and silk-cottons make perfect work blouses. The Pendrell Blouse is an easy pattern with no closures to worry about, which means fast sewing!

Or how about this silk knit print? Kelly green and white is so classic.

This would make a gorgeous summer dress! Real Liberty of London Tana Lawn. I still haven’t cut the Liberty fabric I received as a present last year but the fabric feels amazing! Excellent for barbeques, summer picnics and outdoor weddings. (With all this talk of warm weather sewing, is is starting to feel like spring yet?)

How about this great striped knit for a Renfrew top? Hart’s Fabric has a great selection of knit fabrics to choose from. There are plenty of striped knits in other colours too!

I’m drawn to citrus greens and bright blues, and fabrics with white backgrounds for spring. They feel so summery and fresh! A nice change from the dark colours and heavy textures of fall and winter fabrics.

What about you? Which fabrics are your favourites? Leave a comment below! Or if you like, leave a comment on the Hart’s Fabric Facebook page.

The giveaway ends on Thursday, March 1st and the winner will be chosen randomly from the comments below. Anyone in the world can enter and win, this giveaway is open to all countries.

Good luck, everyone! And thanks to Hart’s Fabric for offering such a generous giveaway prize!


Contest is now closed. Thanks everyone for entering and the winner will be announced tomorrow!

    I would love to win this gift certificate!!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. Emily February 27, 2012 at 6:07 am #

    Wow, this is exciting! If I won this, I’d probably splurge on some Nani Iro double gauze (loving this one: http://www.hartsfabric.com/naomi-ito-japanese-fabric-dots61865.html) or some Liberty Lawn (Ladders! How fun! http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-lawn-ladders-65212.html), because they both catch my eye and I can never seem to convince myself to spend the money! I love your choices–polka dots are always a favorite!

  3. Ms.Cleaver February 27, 2012 at 6:13 am #

    I’m digging some of the pointelle knits, also there’s a Retro Yellow Bean Plaid Silk Chiffon that looks amazing!

  4. Graca February 27, 2012 at 6:14 am #

    I would totally love to win this gift certificate! So much to choose from, I’m drawn to the eco-friendly fabrics, I’ve never sewn anything in hemp or bamboo… I haven’t even seen that kind of fabric here in Winnipeg. And that Retro dishes print on the first page would be super-cute dress.

    Thanks for the chance to win [fingers crossed].

  5. Mel February 27, 2012 at 6:14 am #

    fantastic giveaway! I have recently started sewing for myself and have been drooling over Hart’s fabric’s website. I even pinned a swatch of Double-Gauze Fabric in Wine on one of my pinterest boards hoping that one day it would come on sale. Thanks for the chance!

  6. Lunachick265 February 27, 2012 at 6:16 am #

    Wow, this giveaway is perfectly timed. I’ve had a couple fabrics from Hart’s in my virtual shopping bag for awhile now, waiting for a coupon, but a giveaway is even better!

    I’ve been eyeing this wide striped aqua jersey for a Renfrew-I’d wear it all summer long!

    And this silk wool suiting to make a skirt to wear with my Pendrell blouse, that I made from silk that I got from Hart’s Fabric a while back. I’m thinking a Ginger skirt, and maybe some type of vest-then I’d have seperates to mix and match.

    I’ll probably buy this even if I don’t win… I have big plans to do up a few professional looking seperates for work in the fall/winter season.

    I hope everyone enjoys eyeing all the lovely fabrics-I know I am!

  7. Melissa February 27, 2012 at 6:17 am #

    I always love polka dots, but am also always on the look out for a bold floral pattern.

  8. Erin February 27, 2012 at 6:18 am #

    I love the Silk Cotton Voile Pumpkin and knit Interlock Stripe Grey Fabric! Really there are so many others I would choose!

  9. Anna February 27, 2012 at 6:19 am #

    It would have to be the lime and white knit. That green is one of my faves, and I am so into sewing knits right now, would love to win this, thanks for the opportunity!

  10. linda turske February 27, 2012 at 6:20 am #

    Wide Stripe Cotton Jersey Knit Fabric Green, Pink Dot Drapey Woven Matka, Missoni Chunky Zigzag Pink, Knit Fabric Plum Bamboo Spandex Jersey

    I would love the opportunity to shop at harts Fabrics!


  11. aprilshowers February 27, 2012 at 6:21 am #

    I am picturing summer dresses for my girls in something from the Wrenly collection by Valori Wells!

  12. Jennifer February 27, 2012 at 6:25 am #

    For me, I would love to make a sunshiny spring/summer skirt with the Echino Solids Linen Cotton in Mustard. I’d love to accessorize with a purse or tote made from any of the gorgeous printed linens.

  13. Stephanie February 27, 2012 at 6:25 am #

    I hope I win – maybe I’ll be lucky since it’s my birthday! I’d love to buy some gorgeous knit fabric (Renfrew’s in my queue).

  14. Josephine February 27, 2012 at 6:25 am #

    Owh wow! This would be so perfect for me, I’ve just moved in my very first apartment and with all the decorating and kitchen stuff there’s not much money left.
    But of course I should sew myself a nice dress for the Moving-party this spring!
    Maybe a fun sheer polka dot chiffon? Or a stunning red knit dress?

    You never know, I just might win…

  15. Tamsin W-P February 27, 2012 at 6:27 am #

    This would be great to win! I’ve had a quick look and cannot choose…. the retro linens are cute, but I also love alot of the knits!

  16. Lindsay February 27, 2012 at 6:27 am #

    Wow what a great giveaway! Thanks for hosting it!

    I need to whip up a few blouses to fill out my wardrobe. I’m loving the rayon challis that they have!

  17. CGCouture February 27, 2012 at 6:29 am #

    I’ve looked at that polka dot fabric several times, but always decided that I couldn’t afford it so I haven’t ordered it. They have so much beautiful fabric there, I’d love to win the certificate! :-)

  18. susanne b. February 27, 2012 at 6:29 am #

    oh, i love this one:
    i suppose it could look nice as a skirt!

  19. Chris February 27, 2012 at 6:29 am #

    Mmmmmm! Fabric! Thanks for the opportunity to receive!

  20. Jane February 27, 2012 at 6:29 am #

    Ooh, this would be so good – I’m just starting to think summer sewing! I love the Valori Wells Dandelion Voile… and the Alexander Henry Cotton Lawn Fabric Dark Cream Larkspur in Bloom Floral….and I’d definitely get some of the Royal Blue Cotton Voile Fabric. I want lots of light, airy cottons, apparently!

  21. Magali February 27, 2012 at 6:30 am #

    I would use this gorgeous red and white silk chiffon to make a spring/summertime dress http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-silk-chiffon-fabric61793.html
    There’s nothing as cheerful as red.
    Otherwise they have a great selection of knits that would make nice bikinis!

  22. Nicole February 27, 2012 at 6:30 am #

    I love love love the Green Berry Bush Liberty of London cotton lawn. I’ve never touched this brand of fabric in real life, but I am sure it is so soft and wonderful:)

  23. Annette February 27, 2012 at 6:31 am #

    I like pansy stripe, stitch garden and pebble sky. And many many others!

  24. Chris February 27, 2012 at 6:31 am #

    I should have read the requirements before hitting send! Linen. Always linen for spring. And they have a boatload of offerings.

  25. Heather February 27, 2012 at 6:32 am #

    So many choices! I think I’d get some of the rosette mesh fabric as an accent for a dress for my daughter, and then some of the Marc Jacobs wool & silk herringbone and the striped bamboo knit spandex for me.

  26. Jenny B February 27, 2012 at 6:32 am #

    I always get excited about the Japanese prints!
    Like this one http://www.hartsfabric.com/nani-iro-fashion-apparel-fabrics-cotton-double-gauze-fabric62034.html

  27. Jan February 27, 2012 at 6:34 am #

    Thanks for telling us about Hart’s Fabrics. I can’t wait to check out their website! Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway!

  28. Nicole February 27, 2012 at 6:35 am #

    Oooooh what a great giveaway. i just begun my spring sewing, and would really love to win, as most of my fabric is for winters in siberia and we’re now moving on! Crossing my fingers that i win!

  29. Meg K February 27, 2012 at 6:35 am #

    Wow. I’m currently slaivating over some Gold Diamonds Chenille Upholstery Fabric for a project in my head. :)

  30. Ann February 27, 2012 at 6:36 am #

    I think the Nano Iro double gauzes look amazing for spring and summer tops! I would love love love to win this!

  31. CabbageRoses February 27, 2012 at 6:39 am #

    The Polka Dot Fashion Chiffon Fabric White Pink is just perfect for some springtime frolic, the Lime Green Stretch Silk Lycra Fabric just shouts out that spring is HERE, and the Cotton Voile High Fashion FabricTropical Floral White is just waiting to be turned into a dreamy beach getaway sundress. Love the colours and the spring vibes that they evoke!

  32. ReAnn Scott February 27, 2012 at 6:39 am #

    I discovered Hart’s and their fabulous fabrics one late night while ‘surfing.’ I was totally delighted and thrilled with the wonderful selection of fabrics this store offers. Only wished I didn’t live 3000 miles away!

    This is a great giveaway that any sewist would love to win!!

  33. Amy February 27, 2012 at 6:40 am #

    I’ve always wanted to buy some Liberty fabric, and this would be the perfect opportunity!

  34. annaintechnicolor February 27, 2012 at 6:41 am #

    I’m really stoked that they have this voile because after fabric.com stopped carrying it, I was afraid that I had lost my chance to get it: http://www.hartsfabric.com/denyse-schmidt-voile-fabric-free-spirit60161.html

    I do historic reenacting and I’ve always wanted to recreate the blue and white print dress that Nicole Kidman wears in Cold Mountain, so this fabric would be perfect for that. ;)

    Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway! It’s definitely a nice way to get a jumpstart on some Spring sewing. :)

  35. Deborah February 27, 2012 at 6:43 am #

    Wow! What a great contest!
    I been eyeing your Longsdale dress for quite a while now and I think the Michael Miller Quarter Dot Aqua fabric would be perfect!
    I also think that the Lorax organic Tree Pom Pom fabrics (in Slate or Earth) would be awesome to make my son some pj pants.

  36. Lynda February 27, 2012 at 6:43 am #

    Oh, I love this http://www.hartsfabric.com/eco-bamboo-stripe-knit-blue-64197.html. It would be perfect for the Renfrew, and it’s eco-friendly!

  37. Karen February 27, 2012 at 6:43 am #

    I’m planning a summer trip around Europe this summer with my husband (!!!) and I’d love to use the new Renfrew pattern for some knit shirts that will be good for travel. I love the teal multi-stripe jersey http://www.hartsfabric.com/teal-stripe-jersey-64620.html and the gray and white crosshatch knit would make some really cute leggings http://www.hartsfabric.com/printed-jersey-knit-62571.html. All the organic cotton knits look beautiful too.

  38. Suzanne February 27, 2012 at 6:44 am #

    I recently bought a couple yards of amazing printed jerseys from Hart’s. They have an amazing selection of jerseys that are even better than those I see in New York’s Garment District. If I won, I’d buy the Organic Cotton Denim Wave print, which I’d use to make another Minoru jacket!

  39. Teresa February 27, 2012 at 6:45 am #

    I don’t even need to go to the Hart’s website to know that I want, want, want that polka dot fabric or. or. maybe with such a certificate I could try the ruffled fabric or I’d get the orange check with blue birds knit or. or…it’s a good job my wallet is far away! b/c for spring I love linens- some out to lunch cats and birds or wavy lines in aqua..
    I spend too much time looking at fabrics I can’t really afford :(

  40. Mary Parmentier February 27, 2012 at 6:50 am #

    Such beautiful fabrics! I would love to win some beautiful shirting fabrics like the Tana Lawn, and desperately need some knits, as I have none (and many new patterns requiring them)! Thank you.

  41. Michelle @ Little Peanut February 27, 2012 at 6:52 am #

    What a wonderful giveaway! I would love to get my hands on some Greenfield Hill Voile Fabric Dogwood Mrs Aster by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit. Thanks for the chance to win, Tasia! :)

  42. Part Time Homemaker February 27, 2012 at 6:54 am #

    Since I’m very pregnant right now, I’d love the Stretch Knit Modal Fabric in Pea Green for a dress or tunic, or the Grey Stripe Sweater Knit for a comfy top. Once I pop, I’d love to do the Pendrell blouse in Abstract Cotton Silk Voile Fabric Black (I just ordered several patterns I’ve been crushing on during your big thirty sale, thanks Tasia!!!). :)

  43. Caffy Bundy February 27, 2012 at 6:55 am #

    For sure… Valori Wells Voile Ingrid Gypsy, it’s soooo nice! A pendrel wanna be fabric if ever I saw one!!

  44. Laura February 27, 2012 at 6:55 am #

    Wow, what a giveaway!

    I’m a total sucker for spots – anything with spots on, I love. I can definitely see that white and blue making a great Pendrell :)

  45. Emma February 27, 2012 at 6:59 am #

    I’m with Ms. Cleaver on this one- I’m digging the Retro Yellow Bean Plaid Silk Chiffon!

  46. Tsigeyusv February 27, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    The Liberty of London fabric is just gorgeous. I’d have to buy a pattern to make something yummy, too.

  47. Lauren J February 27, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    I love the purple and grey striped jersey!

  48. DR February 27, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    This is such a great prize! I’ve got my eye on the silk haberdasher fabric. The echino linens are fantastic too!

  49. Astrid February 27, 2012 at 7:02 am #

    I would go for some Raw Silk Tweed with Silver Lurex or Denim fabric. I’ve recently sewn a really neat pair of checkered pants for myself in a very luxerious wool – I could do with a pair more!

  50. Joanne February 27, 2012 at 7:03 am #

    Oh yes please count me in! I hadn’t heard of Hart’s but have just spent a lovely ten minutes floating about their site – they have plaid silk dupioni which I had given up on finding. Hooray!

  51. Elizabeth February 27, 2012 at 7:05 am #

    Ohhhh, I love this challis on their site! But really it was hard to choose just one. http://www.hartsfabric.com/pink-dot-woven-matka-62550.html

  52. Samina February 27, 2012 at 7:05 am #

    I love linen & the French General Linen Medallion fabrics just scream “spring” to to me. It’s a rainy day too, so I could use some lovely fabric to drool over & brighten it up.

  53. Jodi February 27, 2012 at 7:06 am #

    How exciting, Tasia! I’d love to invite spring with something like this rose silk print (http://www.hartsfabric.com/digital-rose-silk-64680.html).

  54. Joen February 27, 2012 at 7:07 am #

    I love the printed canvas especially Retro Paris City Life Cotton. I have been wanting to make covers for milk crates to use for storeage in my sewing room! This would be a great give away to win.

  55. Sasha February 27, 2012 at 7:09 am #

    How exciting! I was just browsing their website the other day, and the linen knits really caught my eye. I have a dress made of a linen knit and it’s my favorite, as it just keeps getting softer and more beautiful with wear. I hadn’t seen yardage of this type for sale very many places, and seeing it on their website really gets the spring fever going! I’d love to sew up something breezy for the spring with it!

  56. Rachel February 27, 2012 at 7:10 am #

    This is a fabulous giveaway!! Thanks so much. The Liberty of London Geometrics and Ladders get me excited.

  57. Seraphinalina February 27, 2012 at 7:11 am #

    Oh yes please! What a great way to brighten a Monday. They do have some lovely silks, don’t they?

  58. S Hardy February 27, 2012 at 7:14 am #

    I love all of their eco fabrics – but i think my favorite is the Hemp Organic Cotton Denim Wave Fabric!

  59. Mary February 27, 2012 at 7:18 am #

    Oh I love the Liberty of London Tana Lawn…

  60. Rhonda H. February 27, 2012 at 7:18 am #

    Wow, so many great choices……I really love some Anna Maria Horner’s voiles. Thanks for chance to win!

  61. Lesley February 27, 2012 at 7:19 am #

    I love the silk-cotton polka dots that you listed and this lovely linen knit (http://www.hartsfabric.com/linen-fabric-knit59214.html) would be great for summer sweaters, cardigans or super-comfy dress. I am also a sucker for any kind of striped knit fabrics….striped tees are my absolute favourite!

  62. Clare February 27, 2012 at 7:21 am #

    That green knit is fantastic. Thanks for the giveaway!

  63. Sue February 27, 2012 at 7:22 am #

    I would love to win this giveaway! Harts fabric has so many amazing things and I’m a big fan of buying fabric online. I’m loving the pink and grey silk cotton voile with watercolor-like plaid print. So pretty and fresh!

  64. ~Heather February 27, 2012 at 7:24 am #

    Oh, polka dots for spring, definitely!

  65. marthaeliza February 27, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    The light-weight wool jersey would be the perfect way to slip into Spring!

  66. Bettina February 27, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    Now that is what I call an inspired giveaway- I have been eyeing up the Renfrew and Pendrell for some time and what stopped me was how hard it is here in Germany to find nice suitable knits or Pendrell-y fabrics. So…were I to win, I’d like the lovely people at Hart’s to wrap me up a few yards of cotton jerseys and some double gauze…and I could sneak the pattern purchase straight in with the fabric…and some notions…why is there so MUCH nice stuff in that shop?

  67. Jen February 27, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    Wow–what a giveaway. I’m smitten with your polka-dot selection, but my goal this spring is to step away from the prints and sew some wardrobe builders in solids. Something like their kelly green swiss dot cotton would be perfect.

  68. Lynn February 27, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    Oh what a great giveaway! I need to sew some summer blouses, so I would choose the silk cotton, some double gauze or lightweight voiles in jewel-toned prints.

  69. Shawnta February 27, 2012 at 7:28 am #

    I love this pink chiffon http://www.hartsfabric.com/polka-dot-chiffon-fabric-fashion-apparel61800.html and this pink suiting http://www.hartsfabric.com/italian-suiting-red-64092.html
    I would probably splurge on a few patterns too!

  70. Jen R February 27, 2012 at 7:29 am #

    I love the soft voiles for spring tops and dresses!

  71. Tiffany February 27, 2012 at 7:30 am #

    It’s probably a bad thing that I has SO much fun on the Hart’s website – I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win this. My favs (yes, I cannot pick just one) are the Pink Floral Rayon Challis Fabric – great print!, the Teal MultiStripe Jersey, and the Missoni ZigZag Floral Lace Grape Knit. LOVING IT ALL!
    Thanks so much for hosting!
    Tiffany – pixiepatternandsewing.blogspot.com

  72. Sarah AJ February 27, 2012 at 7:30 am #

    I love the Valori Wells voiles! I can never find voile locally.

  73. Beth February 27, 2012 at 7:34 am #

    The one I love is out of stock! It’s this floral rayon challis: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-rayon-challis-fabric61251.html

  74. Alexandra February 27, 2012 at 7:35 am #

    Yay, what a great giveaway, thank you!

    I really love the Knit Fabric White Floral Jersey, and would love to make a Renfrew t-shirt out of it!

  75. Irene Bullock February 27, 2012 at 7:37 am #

    I just checked their website, the dress weight fabric and OMG! Lovely, lovely stuff. If I had to choose, anything in cranberry or Ikat print would do, I’m in a spring frame of mind.

  76. scuffsan February 27, 2012 at 7:38 am #

    So many wonderful fabrics to choose from! I’m loving that silk cotton polka dot you posted, along with every other polka dot fabric there is (yes, I am polka dot crazy). Also, I’m liking the pink wool basket weave and a long list of other fabrics. It would be wonderful to win this giveaway!

  77. Jennifer February 27, 2012 at 7:40 am #

    Ooo, great giveaway! There are always several fabrics from Hart’s I want to try! So far, for spring sewing I like http://www.hartsfabric.com/fashion-fabric-rayon59120.html , http://www.hartsfabric.com/pearl-eyelet-fabric59755.html , and http://www.hartsfabric.com/navy-grey-interlock-stripe-64627.html.

  78. Wendy February 27, 2012 at 7:41 am #

    Thanks for this great giveaway, I would have to choose from their linens – what a great selection for summer sewing. Their website states only limited international shipping, not to countries in Europe except UK – so I don’t know if I can qualify for this giveaway seeing asmI live in Luxembourg :(

  79. Angela February 27, 2012 at 7:43 am #

    I’m really inspired by this mustard colored Ponte Knit (http://www.hartsfabric.com/double-knit-fabric56831.html), the entire page of Bamboo knits (http://www.hartsfabric.com/bamboo-spandex-knit-fabrics.html), and the Stretch Abstract Floral Jersey Knit (http://www.hartsfabric.com/stretch-jersey-knit-fabric61650.html)–to die for.

  80. Mónica February 27, 2012 at 7:44 am #

    I´d give a try to some ruffled knit fabric like that: http://www.hartsfabric.com/ruffle-knit-fabric52924.html

    and I´d sew something like sorbetto top (http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-sorbetto-top) but with a vaporous finishing!

  81. Patricia Hatfield February 27, 2012 at 7:45 am #

    I love the kelly green silk print as well. Would look fantastic made up in a DVF style wrap dress.
    I also love the Nani Iro Molly Cloth Blue Floral for the Lonsdale.

  82. Louise February 27, 2012 at 7:47 am #

    What a great giveaway, I’d love the knit fabric as I’m having trouble getting some for the Renfrew.

  83. Emma February 27, 2012 at 7:48 am #

    Oh, I think I’d get the Liberty of London Geometric Tana Lawn print… http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-london-geometric-63178.html So pretty!

  84. Janette February 27, 2012 at 7:49 am #

    Oh! So many choices! I am so glad to learn of this store. I just started sewing and one of my frustrations (and based on your posts, many others share it) is that my local fabric store doesn’t carry much in the way of apparel fabric.
    I have the Lonsdale and the Renfrew on the way so I found a few I thought would look good. Here are just a couple:
    ok – i need to stop now…

  85. Elspeth L from Rome February 27, 2012 at 7:49 am #

    Yeah, Lovely Giveaway!

    I have my heart set on this Pearl Eyelet Cotton Fabric, it would make such a nice top or dress for hot summers!


  86. Aislinn February 27, 2012 at 7:50 am #

    Free fabric???? What isn’t to love? Yes, please!

  87. Alessa February 27, 2012 at 7:50 am #

    Wow, what a great and generous giveaway! Hart’s fabric always has an awesome selection!
    There’s a black&white polka dot swimsuit fabric! The Nani Iro Forest Green Double Gauze Floral fabric would make a great Pendrell blouse and the Hawaiian Rayon Challis for a pretty dress!

  88. Anita February 27, 2012 at 7:50 am #

    So many fabrics to try to choose from, but i have to say my favorite is the Daisy Cottage Large Floral for Riley Blake Yellow. It just makes me happy.

  89. Phoebe February 27, 2012 at 7:51 am #

    I spend a lot of time window shopping at Hart’s, so I know exactly what I want. I’ve been aching to make a spring Minoru jacket, so I would get a solid canvas or twill in a springy color and the red dot on cream rayon coat lining fabric.

  90. Christi February 27, 2012 at 7:55 am #

    I want, nay need, some Liberty lawn! Awesome giveaway. :)

  91. Ang February 27, 2012 at 7:56 am #

    Wow, Harts Fabric is amazing!! How nice of them.

    I stumbled across the Batik Prisma Dyes Fabric in Sunshine (http://www.hartsfabric.com/batik-prisma-dyes-sunshine-54113.html) and it instantly made me think of spring and wish for its’ quick arrival.

  92. Rebecca S. February 27, 2012 at 7:57 am #

    I think these would be fun for my new Renfrew shirts:


  93. Lucy February 27, 2012 at 7:57 am #

    This double gauze is be-a-utiful. Too bad it’s out of stock :-(

  94. indigorchid February 27, 2012 at 8:01 am #

    Thank you Hart’s! What really caught my eye was all the Anna Horner cotton voile’s, but the Nano Iro double gauzes were pretty delicious looking too!

  95. DeVona February 27, 2012 at 8:04 am #

    Thank you for sharing this awesome vendor and providing the opportunity to do a little sampling :) I really like the floral knit salmon fabric. I could see myself making a lovely spring dress and cutting out a nice Renfrew top. So pretty and feminine too!

  96. Funnygrrl February 27, 2012 at 8:04 am #

    I love the voile. I’m also interested in less floral recently and more geometric designs. There is a plaid silk voile that looks intriguing.
    This is so exciting as I’ve never ordered fabric online before!

  97. Shannon R. February 27, 2012 at 8:04 am #

    I’ve been in the market for a pretty fabric to make a new spring dress! This would be perfect! Thanks for the opportunity!

  98. Audie February 27, 2012 at 8:05 am #

    They have such amazing knits! I have such a hard time finding ones that I like, that I would definitally buy some yardage there. Plus some of the rainwear fabric sicne I just bought the Minirou pattern during your birthday sale! (Happy belated Birthday!)

  99. Forrest February 27, 2012 at 8:06 am #

    So excited about this giveaway! There’s a great voile with orange and pink mums that I’m lusting over for a spring dress!

  100. Leslie February 27, 2012 at 8:07 am #

    Thanks for the tip on Hart’s Fabric, I have bookmarked the page to come back later, But I love the ruffled lace stuff!

  101. Dora February 27, 2012 at 8:09 am #

    Wow, best giveaway ever! Too bad I never win anything. :)

    I love the silk-cotton sateens in cheerful colors like gold and teal. How luxurious for a fancy skirt or dress for springtime events!

    As always I am in love with the Kokka cottons and other Japanese prints. They would make beautiful, airy blouses for spring and summer.

    • Lauren T February 27, 2012 at 11:15 am #

      I’m trying really hard not to only look at the floral fabric I’m instantly drawn to, but Harts also loves floral and put it on the front page! Aside from that…

      I love the Alexander Henry Metro Villette Targets and Tiles Multi. I could see this as a dress, but perhaps it’s too wild for an all over print. http://www.hartsfabric.com/alexander-henry-villette-65719.html

      I could see myself picnicking in a full, flowy circle skirt made of this Melody Ross Pink Fabulous Ladies Pink. How fun! http://www.hartsfabric.com/melody-ross-fabulous-ladies-65634.html

      And, pretty much anything Alexander Henry, especially the floral.

  102. Sarah February 27, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    I love the robot linen-cotton print by Rashida Hale. It’s adorable, and also the exact colors I was planning on sewing for spring! Also that bamboo knit spandex in fuschia is gorgeous and would make a great knit top.

  103. Hearthrose February 27, 2012 at 8:16 am #

    So many pretty fabrics! I am making some tops for summer, and I’d love to have some http://www.hartsfabric.com/swiss-dot-cotton-sky-64185.html swiss dot in a half dozen colors!

    Thanks for the opportunity to join the giveaway!

  104. Libby February 27, 2012 at 8:17 am #

    I love the Parson Gray Cotton Fabrics. They would make a fun summer skirt that would be appropriate for work and weekends.

  105. Rebecca February 27, 2012 at 8:18 am #

    I love their selection! I think that this Floral Rayon Challis (http://networkedblogs.com/utEzY) would make a gorgeous blouse!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  106. Mika February 27, 2012 at 8:18 am #

    I love all of their cotton voiles, and the turquoise vining floral lace is gorgeous!

  107. Amy February 27, 2012 at 8:19 am #

    I’d love to get the Herringbone Plaid Woolen Fabric Grey Ivory for a shirt for my husband and from there your choices above for Pendrells and Renfrews also sound great to me!

  108. Lauren February 27, 2012 at 8:20 am #

    Wow, so many beautiful fabrics! I do love that polka dot silk cotton lawn you linked – it would make such a lovely, floaty summer dress :) I also love this Hawaiian leaves rayon fabric – http://www.hartsfabric.com/hawaiian-rayon-fabric61967.html – it gets REALLY hot and humid here in the summer, and wearing rayon is pretty much the only way to survive!

  109. Kyla February 27, 2012 at 8:20 am #

    I would pick this voile to make a beautiful spring dress.

  110. Grace February 27, 2012 at 8:20 am #

    I love the entire line of the Birch Organic Cottons! Especially the commute line with all the bicycle prints :). Thanks Tasia!

  111. Steph A February 27, 2012 at 8:21 am #

    Oh it’s too hard!!! There are so many lovely fabrics at Hart’s I’d have a hard time deciding what to make in the first place. Not that I need anything really, but I do have a gap in my stash for casual/dressy tops! I’ve got my eye on the plain Pendrell (view C).

  112. Jenna February 27, 2012 at 8:23 am #

    I ALWAYS have a Hart’s Fabric wishlist going! They have awesome selection & even better customer service. :) Some ruffle knit for my baby girl: http://www.hartsfabric.com/ruffle-knit-fabric59076.html

    Some brown rayon to make myself a top to match a skirt I just bought

    and just for good measure I’ll throw in some double gauze :)

  113. Vicki February 27, 2012 at 8:23 am #

    I have never ordered online fabric, but I think I may have found my new vice! I love Anna Maria Horner Voile Shattered Sun on their website. Lovely colours, I can picture it made up in a vintage style A line dress.

  114. Lindsey February 27, 2012 at 8:24 am #

    What a fantastic giveaway!

    There are so many amazing fabrics on this site. I really like the Japanese double gauze fabrics, such as these:

    The options of having eco friendly fabrics is also great, such as this denim (love the design and really want to make a skirt with it!):

    Also I think this voile would make a lovely blouse:

  115. Brooke February 27, 2012 at 8:28 am #

    Ooh, this is very tough! I think I’d go with a Liberty of London cotton, or maybe the navy polka dot chiffon. Or maybe a floaty challis? Too hard to decide!

  116. Joanna T February 27, 2012 at 8:29 am #

    So hard to choose, but I’m really struck by the Sheer Peacock Print Silk Chiffon Fabric- would make a stunning dress or maybe a nice light kimono robe for tottering around the house!

  117. Mary February 27, 2012 at 8:31 am #

    I’d love to pick up any of the rayon challis fabrics Hart’s has. The blue floral rayon challis is my favorite so far for a dress or blouse for summer.

  118. Lisa February 27, 2012 at 8:32 am #

    I love the Echino Birds Border Print in purple (http://www.hartsfabric.com/echino-border-purple-65192.html) and the Melody Miller typewriter print (http://www.hartsfabric.com/kokka-melody-miller-typewriter-pink-65200.html). Either would be great for a summer dress!

  119. Shannon February 27, 2012 at 8:32 am #

    Love the rayon challis Hawaiian prints. Perfect for a breezy summer dress!

  120. LM February 27, 2012 at 8:40 am #

    Oh!! Hart’s Fabrics has my heart already! it is so hard to pick but the organig chamray in red had me at first sight :) ahhhh how i would love it in a summer dress…sigh!
    thank you for the giveaway!

  121. Anne February 27, 2012 at 8:45 am #

    I would LOVE their gray silk noil fabric for a dress I’m working on (for my mom’s wedding!)

  122. Leah February 27, 2012 at 8:45 am #

    Oh, that silk jersey is divine! I also love this knit:
    and this double gaze, yum:

  123. fangaroni February 27, 2012 at 8:48 am #

    What a generous giveaway from Hart Fabrics! Right now I’m loving cotton voile – making a Pendrell from Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks yellow fabric! I would love to try some of the highly recommend Japanese double gauze- like this one for Lonsdale! http://www.hartsfabric.com/naomi-ito-japanese-fabric-floral61866.html

  124. Sarah February 27, 2012 at 8:50 am #

    i am so excited to work with some gorgeous chambray this spring. peasant tops, sun dresses and skirts. they have a gorgeous selection–even an out of stock red chambray that i loved!
    and of course anything Liberty is always inspirational for spring :)

  125. Lizz February 27, 2012 at 8:54 am #

    I love Hart’s! I’ve used the silk/cotton polka dot that you’ve listed and it’s a really lovely fabric – it has a lot of drape and washes up beautifully. I get excited by the Nano Iro double gauze fabrics. I think a little spring dress in one of these would be so perfect! Thanks for the chance to win!

  126. Megan February 27, 2012 at 8:57 am #

    Their selection of knit fabric! I really want to start sewing with more knits. I have a serger and I need to use it!!

    Great giveaway =)

  127. Gail February 27, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    I’ve been eyeballing this print matka fabric for a while:


    I think it would be the perfect fabric for the Pattern Runway Relaxed Shift Dress I’ve been dying to make. And I think this polka dot knit would be perfect to use with the Renfrew pattern, which I should be getting any day now! Yay!


  128. Lisa Westra February 27, 2012 at 9:01 am #

    I would love any of the stripe or polka dot knits. I have been obsessed lately with surging up quick knit pieces so I may just have to splurge and get a couple knits even without the gift certificate!

  129. Katek February 27, 2012 at 9:01 am #

    They have a lot of wonderful rayon challis fabrics with great summer prints that I would love to make into blouses and dresses!

  130. Mandee Jo February 27, 2012 at 9:05 am #

    I have been obsessively sewing flannel pajama pants for my daughter and she would love this barn yard print

    But I like this knit


  131. christina February 27, 2012 at 9:11 am #

    I love the kelley green and white print above! My mind is spinning, and I do need to get on making a renfrew stat! I’d love to win.

  132. Trisha February 27, 2012 at 9:13 am #

    OOh! This Needle Felted Spiral fabric is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I’d love to make something amazing with it!


  133. Jill February 27, 2012 at 9:14 am #

    Oh so many pretty things…. I really want a purple top
    http://www.hartsfabric.com/violet-cotton-silk-sateen-fabric52110.html and some polka dots!


  134. JP February 27, 2012 at 9:14 am #

    I’d love to buy this soft grey sweater knit and make a lovely light sweater dress for spring!


  135. Michelle Roy February 27, 2012 at 9:18 am #

    What a fun giveaway, thanks for hosting it!! I hope I win!

    I’m loving the Ikat Challis, all three colorways they offer are nice, but I really like the Blue and the Green. Perfect for a summertime maxi!

  136. Janet February 27, 2012 at 9:20 am #

    Great giveaway! I think a Lonsdale in http://www.hartsfabric.com/missoni-chunky-zigzag-turquoise-64868.html would be pretty amazing for summer. But then the cotton silk mix colours are pretty nice too…

  137. Adrienne February 27, 2012 at 9:29 am #

    I love the colour of the Eco friendly hemp silk in bronze. Black is also nice. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  138. Annabelle February 27, 2012 at 9:31 am #

    There are so many great choices! The white eyelet fabric really says summer to me.

    This Alexander Henry cotton lawn would make a gorgeous Lonsdale!http://www.hartsfabric.com/alexander-henry-cotton-lawn-fabric-larkspur-in-bloom59894.html

  139. Stevie February 27, 2012 at 9:32 am #

    Fuschia bamboo knit?! Amazing I would love something like this to make a draped skirt! x

  140. Laurel February 27, 2012 at 9:33 am #

    I love their selection of organic cotton prints – especially the Birch line.

  141. Alison February 27, 2012 at 9:47 am #

    Nani Iro double gauze cotton, love it!


  142. ms. modiste February 27, 2012 at 9:47 am #

    140 comments already! That’s awesome!

    I’ll throw my name in the hat, why not? I think I’d go for something like this vaguely nautical striped knit. It’d make a pretty cool Renfrew!


    Or maybe this one, seeing as it’s great looking AND made from organic cotton.



  143. Brenda Nelson February 27, 2012 at 9:53 am #

    I love the Voile fabrics esp. Valorri Wells and Joel Dewberry.

  144. Leslie February 27, 2012 at 9:53 am #

    Too many to choose from. I would buy a print knit or the charcoal and white strip for the Renfew top or a Liberty of London fabric for a crescent skirt. Thanks for the giveaway!

  145. Susan February 27, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    Well apparently I like the out of stock ones!
    This ikat:
    and this ikat:
    would both make pretty spring/summer dresses :)
    And this lawn is also tempting :)

  146. Eileen February 27, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    Some of this pretty lace for a button up shirt – http://www.hartsfabric.com/white-floral-lace-64664.html

    And some of this stripy knit for a t-shirt and/or a skirt – http://www.hartsfabric.com/navy-grey-interlock-stripe-64627.html


  147. Katie E February 27, 2012 at 9:55 am #

    What a great giveaway! I am try to expand my sewing horizons and make wearable items. I would love to make a blouse with the Medallion Cotton Voile (Green and White). I would also love to make a dress with one of the knit Modal fabrics.

  148. Marigold February 27, 2012 at 9:56 am #

    It is difficult. Marc Jacobs pink/blue plaid, Tana Lawn geometric. I do like the good descriptions for those of us not exactly sure what each catagory is.

  149. Vicki Perry February 27, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    Fantastic Giveaway Tasia! I’m in love with pastel shades for this spring & and i’m a huge fan of polka dots no matter what season. So for me, some Silk Satin Georgette in Dusty Rose would be perfect for a pussy bow blouse. Also the Little Hearts Knit in Green is too cute not to be made into a dress.

  150. woolcat February 27, 2012 at 10:01 am #

    So many lovely rayon challis fabrics that would make gorgeous summer dresses! I like the black floral one best.

  151. Angela February 27, 2012 at 10:04 am #

    What a seriously great giveaway, thank you!

  152. Kristina February 27, 2012 at 10:07 am #

    Ah, I can’t decide! My first choice would be this lovely swiss dot: http://www.hartsfabric.com/swiss-dot-cotton-rust-64178.html , I know just the blouse I would make with it!
    Other than that, this looks delicious: http://www.hartsfabric.com/silk-voile-62608.html
    And always the double gauze of course :)

    Are you sure though that the Giveaway is open to all countries? It looks as though Hart’s has a very limited range of countries they ship to:
    “HartsFabric is delighted to offer customers both UPS and USPS shipping options. We ship to the U. S., Canada, U. K., and Australia. We also cheerfully ship orders to members of our Armed Forces.”

  153. AnneC February 27, 2012 at 10:07 am #

    I am drawn to anything with a cream background, whether it is polka dots, flowers or stripes. And slightly sheer, too!

  154. MelissaB February 27, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    What says spring to me most if bright hot pinks, turquoises, purples, & yellows. A floral usually says it best for me and with our crazy weather, I’m longing for warm summer days so badly.

  155. Bethany February 27, 2012 at 10:12 am #

    I love this muted green check from lecien. It reminds me of all the lichen and moss here in Portland, I’d love to make a jumper out of this, to wear with tights and a blouse or turtleneck underneath. Or a simple shirtdress.


  156. Salma February 27, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    Ooh! This is exciting, for some reason I’m drawn to the Silk Satin Georgette in Dusty Rose and the Silk Rayon Velvet in Black. It’s so elegant and dramatic!


    Thanks Tasia and Harts Fabric!

  157. Ellen February 27, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    I love their huge selection of organic cottons, and wonderful prints in the apparel cotton fabrics! I just spent way too much time browsing around!

  158. Clara February 27, 2012 at 10:17 am #

    Great givaway! I loved the shirting fabrics, especially the Grey Geometric Stripe Pima!

  159. Evie February 27, 2012 at 10:20 am #

    What a great giveaway. What a tough choice.
    I’m loving the geo print satin
    And the red rainwear for a Minoru jacket
    Or maybe even the beautiful Italian denim so I can try making my first pair of jeans
    And I’m sure there are plenty of others that I could choose.

  160. Gerd February 27, 2012 at 10:26 am #

    I love Printed linen fabric

    and I also Silk shiffon very much

  161. Joyce February 27, 2012 at 10:26 am #

    Bamboo & organic cotton stripe in Honeysuckle for a Renfrew top is my pick. So, spingy!

  162. Rebekah February 27, 2012 at 10:26 am #

    The Cream Floral in their Rayon section really caught my eye right away. http://www.hartsfabric.com/fashion-fabric-rayon59120.html

    Wouldn’t that be such a fun fabric to use with this Burda dress pattern?


  163. Marge February 27, 2012 at 10:27 am #

    I love the Valorie Wells Dandelion – it is absolutely beautiful – and it is no wonder it is fold out. I have never browsed their selection before so I am glad to be directed to their site. I have a slew of places I go for children’s fabric but finding a good selection of “adult” fabric is a bit more difficult.

  164. Scooter February 27, 2012 at 10:27 am #

    I’m a sucker for hemp. This wool/hemp blend looks delish http://www.hartsfabric.com/eco-hemp-wool-plaid-64201.html

    I love their selection of eco-fabrics and have been seriously hankering for one of those “boat” style shirts in a navy/white stripe. Match made in heaven:

    Silk/cotton is tempting too….I have an old s/s shirt that’s silk-cotton and is so beloved that it’s starting to actually wear out.

    Thanks Hart’s and Tasia for the great giveaway.

  165. Catherine February 27, 2012 at 10:28 am #

    Great giveaway! I like their range of eco fabrics – what a lovely selection! I think I’d lean that way. Although…. the geometric silk you posted is also gorgeous :)

  166. Claire February 27, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    I love a check shirt for spring and summer so this fabric looks lovely http://www.hartsfabric.com/check-cotton-shirting-fabric-black-white61240.html

  167. Kathy February 27, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    Oooooh–a new fabric place i hadn’t discovered! I’m always drawn to bright, colourful stuff so I LOVE this:
    Rayon is gorgeous to wear and always hangs beautifully. I can see this as a tunic-style top over black leggings ;-)

  168. Jody February 27, 2012 at 10:32 am #

    OH WOW! I would so love to win this as I have been drooling over the fabrics at Hart Fabric for a couple of months now. I love the silk cotton sateens and I can’t tell you how much I want some Nano Iro double gauze. I love so many fabrics on their site.

  169. Amy February 27, 2012 at 10:32 am #

    They have some nice silks. I love to try sewing silk noil for maybe just a simple jacket or a pair of shorts!

  170. Angela W. February 27, 2012 at 10:34 am #

    Fantastic giveaway.
    I think this cute print will make a lovely spring garment.
    Thanks Tasia!

  171. arlene February 27, 2012 at 10:34 am #

    I am partial to polka dots….and silk of course! Silk/Cotton is another awesome fabric… My closet has way too much black in it..really needs a spash of “COLOUR” to wake it up.

  172. MJ February 27, 2012 at 10:35 am #

    I can’t believe I’ve never noticed this site. Their fabrics look amazing! I am particularly drawn to the cotton swiss dots for a pretty top:

    or a lovely turquoise polka dot.

    I’d also love to cover a couple of cushions with an eco-friendly cotton such as this:

    So pretty!!!

  173. Lindsay Tailor February 27, 2012 at 10:38 am #

    Love those prints! The two I really want are out of stock temporarily. I hope they restock soon!


  174. Vicki Kate February 27, 2012 at 10:38 am #

    I love the black cheetah knit for a Renfrew. the turquoise lace is lovely too, I could overlay it for a pretty Pendrell I think… $100 could go a long long way!

  175. Amy W February 27, 2012 at 10:39 am #

    I am addicted to sewing skirts and dresses, but am in serious need of some blouses! I think the Polka Dot Fashion Chiffon Fabric Pink White would be perfect for spring!

  176. JillyBe February 27, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    FanTAStic giveaway, and what a great resource in Hart’s Fabrics! I love their line of organic & eco fabrics – one of the more extensive lines to be found online! The bamboo & organic cotton knits look delightful! And I’m always a sucker for a lovely silk/cotton blend. It would be hard to choose!

  177. Heather (Fuss) February 27, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    Oh man, so many amazing fabrics to choose from. I think I’d really love a pretty, brightly coloured knit for a flowing summer dress.

  178. beth February 27, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    I think I would have to pick one of the denims…I just love them all!

  179. pam February 27, 2012 at 10:45 am #

    I have… umm…. bought many of the fabrics I want from Harts already. (LOVE their selection, made tees, dresses, home decor all from their wonderfully curated stuff.) But I can find a few more pieces to love:)
    Monet Challis Purple – perfect for a dress

    Polka Dots Double Gauze Japanese Fabric Cream – perfect for everything else!

  180. Kris February 27, 2012 at 10:46 am #

    What a nice way to start a Monday, dreaming about spring! It feels particularly far away at this moment with the freezing temps we’ve had the last couple days.

    I’m looking forward to sewing with light cottons in pinks and lavenders. There is a Lavender Cotton Voile that would work for some patterns I want to make this season. I love the flowers in the pink Retro Asian Lawn as well. On the knit side, the Organic Cotton Sweater Knit is crying out to be made into a delicate spring cardigan.

  181. Arlene February 27, 2012 at 10:46 am #

    Ooh, great giveaway! I could so see a summer dress in this
    Or a cute summer top in this…

    I’m crazy about ruffles, so many things I could do with that!

  182. Claire February 27, 2012 at 10:47 am #

    I think a maxi-dress lonsdale in this fabric http://www.hartsfabric.com/hawaiian-rayon-fabric61967.html would be great for a spring vacation

  183. Susanne February 27, 2012 at 10:47 am #

    I always like linens, and Hart’s has some really cute printed linens. I’ve never tried a linen knit before, so I’m intrigued – would love to try it out!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  184. Julie February 27, 2012 at 10:47 am #

    Oh definitely want to try my hand again with some knit fabric – I have been liking the stripe knits for summer tops and perhaps a simple tunic dress. I also like this white cotton jacquard print http://www.hartsfabric.com/white-cotton-jacquard-64678.html
    and I would like to stalk up on ribbons, trim and piping!!

  185. Lynda February 27, 2012 at 10:48 am #

    I love the wool fabrics, as unlike you, living in NZ I am looking forward to winter and wearing my new Minoru jacket.

  186. Amanda February 27, 2012 at 10:49 am #

    What a great giveaway! I would definitely go with a striped knit to make up my Renfrew top:


    This voile to have around to make a floaty dress for summer:


    And I’m eye-ing one of these chambrays to make up a couple of pair of summer shorts!


    Thanks Tasia, and Hart’s! :)

  187. Kate February 27, 2012 at 10:49 am #

    I love Hart’s Fabric, what a fantastic giveaway. I love the Nani Iro floral cotton gauze http://www.hartsfabric.com/nani-iro-fashion-apparel-fabrics-cotton-double-gauze-fabric62034.html. So many bright, beautiful colors, perfect for spring!

  188. Kathy February 27, 2012 at 10:51 am #

    OOh! How cute is the Commute Ride Pool Organic Cotton Fabric! Little bikes!! Very sweet. And I’m loving all the new blue and green Michael Miller solids. So springy and cheery.

  189. Ruta February 27, 2012 at 10:55 am #

    What the lovely-lovely materials! So hard to find the favourite, but the first place I love the Silk Cotton Sateen or Army Green Silk Voile. Perfect for dress or blouse. B.r.,

  190. Amy D February 27, 2012 at 11:03 am #

    I’ve been dying for some Heather Ross fabric, I love it!

  191. Rachel W. February 27, 2012 at 11:05 am #

    Oooh, thank you for hosting! I’ve been lusting after Echino linen/cottons lately, and I love this dots-and-birds fabric Hart’s has: http://www.hartsfabric.com/echino-fabric-etsuko-furuya59502.html. I’m a sucker for adorable prints!

    Then again, the idea of a silk/cotton solid sateen is intriguing– what a beautiful sheath dress one of those would make! http://www.hartsfabric.com/silk-cotton-gold-37961.html http://www.hartsfabric.com/37960.html

  192. Taya Bee February 27, 2012 at 11:12 am #


    I’ve been wanting to make my own western button up shirts with this pink and blue plaid fabric from Marc Jacobs to feel all fancy like:

    And this Tula Pink snail scallop in aqua fabric would be beautiful on a strapless summer dress for silly tea parties and mimosas with the ladies – or maybe a Lonsdale!:

    Thank you, Tasia, for hosting this giveaway, and thank you, Hart’s for the opportunity!


  193. Naomi Abramowicz February 27, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    Oh, I really loved this patterned green and white cotton! Maybe I’ll fashion my first ever me made dress out of it :)


  194. Nikole February 27, 2012 at 11:17 am #

    I’m a Voile, Lawn and Cotton gal since where i live it’s summer year round. Swiss dot is one of my faves

  195. Mary Danielson February 27, 2012 at 11:17 am #

    What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for hosting it, Tasia! This spring, all of my sewing seems to revolve around floral and ikat prints. I love wearing more feminine, colorful garments when the sun starts shining again.

  196. Kate February 27, 2012 at 11:17 am #

    WOW!!! What an amazing website. I just got my Renfrew pattern through in the post and I am excited, then I saw http://www.hartsfabric.com/bird-check-jersey-knit-fabric55220.html and I’m not sure if any other fabric will do now! That ought to get me in a spring mood :-)

  197. Joelle February 27, 2012 at 11:18 am #

    oh! i would stock on summery fabric! this http://www.hartsfabric.com/hemp-fabric-organic-cotton59113.html to make a shirtdress (maybe not that summery, but it’s on my “sewing challenges” list)
    then some pink gingham or maybe green? ; http://www.hartsfabric.com/35114.html for a strapless dress
    and an ikat print: http://www.hartsfabric.com/boho-ikat-pink-64893.html
    and some abstract floral: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-rayon-challis-fabric61251.html for at retro dress.
    can you tell i’m excited??!!

  198. Jacqui February 27, 2012 at 11:20 am #

    What a great way to spend a Monday, looking a some amazing fabric. Really cheered me up today. I love the retro yellow bean plaid silk chiffon.

  199. Jacqui February 27, 2012 at 11:20 am #

    What a great way to spend a Monday, looking a some amazing fabric. Really cheered me up today. I love the retro yellow bean plaid silk chiffon. Thanks

  200. Jacqui February 27, 2012 at 11:23 am #

    What a great way to start a Monday, looking at some amazing fabric. It has really cheered up my day. I love the retro yellow bean plaid silk chiffon. Thank you for the chance to win.

  201. Cynthia February 27, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    I love all of the Japanese double gauze fabrics they have. My mind had already moved past this cold gray winter and I just want light summery dresses again.

  202. Megan D February 27, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    I like the organic cottons (especially the adorable polka dot patterns). I have an 8 month old daughter, a 1.5 year old niece, and another niece on the way I want to make dresses for!

  203. Maaike February 27, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    How utterly lovely is that vintage Liberty of London fabric (http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-of-london-lawn-fabric61387.html)?!? I’ve never worker with Liberty of London fabric but I could see myself sewing up a storm.

  204. Krista February 27, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I like this one, http://www.hartsfabric.com/metallic-houndstooth-fleece-sweatshirt-fabric55248.html.

    It snowed here yesterday, I need more sweaters!

  205. Sara February 27, 2012 at 11:33 am #

    that silk/cotton lawn sounds dreamy. i really liked Natalie Portman’s polka dot oscar dress–maybe a cute summery more casual version is in my future.

  206. Marion February 27, 2012 at 11:36 am #

    The cotton voiles are lovely! I especially like the floral of the Greenfield Hill Voile Fabric in Cranberry.

  207. marissa February 27, 2012 at 11:37 am #

    I love the Ivory Floral Nani Iro Double Gauze Cotton Fabric – I can just imagine an adorable spring blouse made up in that. So cute!

  208. ALICIA February 27, 2012 at 11:40 am #

    I ditto you on the Silk Polka Dot Lawn!

  209. Stephanie February 27, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    Oh, so many lovelies! this one caught my eye right away! http://www.hartsfabric.com/silk-cotton-cranberry-55252.html The color is so dreamy!

  210. GPetunia February 27, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    I love the green and white stripe for a boat neck pullover. Nautical with a summery twist!

  211. michelle February 27, 2012 at 11:47 am #

    i like “knit Interlock Stripe Grey.” i seriously need some simple shirts to accompany my skirts!

  212. Lucy Hastings February 27, 2012 at 11:47 am #

    I love the Liberty of London and the Japanese double gauze fabrics. Maybe I will have to buy both!

  213. cass February 27, 2012 at 11:47 am #

    I love the “Commute” selection… Commute Bike it and Commute by bike are gorgeous…. And I love the Robot Linen.. I could see a fun backpack out of that!!

  214. kira February 27, 2012 at 11:52 am #

    They have so many great fabrics to choose from. Lots of inspiration. I really love the Rayon Lycra Jersey Knit Fabric Red Ikat Floral http://www.hartsfabric.com/rayon-lycra-jersey-knit-fabric61821.html

  215. Shinygreenpenny February 27, 2012 at 11:55 am #

    I just found Harts Fabrics last week and I love their selection. I have been strongly debating over their linens for a fun summer handbag. Their knits selection is great too…I want some stripes for a new Ottobre magazine top!

  216. Ali February 27, 2012 at 11:56 am #

    Wowza, what a great giveaway. I’ve been dreaming of voiles and lawns, too. I absolutely love the silk cotton voile plaid or the Liberty carnation lawn. Sigh.

  217. Brea February 27, 2012 at 11:56 am #

    This one may be the most lovely fabric I’ve ever seen: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-digital-silk-64873.html

  218. MalleQ February 27, 2012 at 11:58 am #

    Im in love with cotton voile :D And all purple fabric to..!

    This http://www.hartsfabric.com/marc-jacobs-plaid-blue-64989.html i cant get out of my head.. Please god (and random!) – let me win! :D

  219. sharonann February 27, 2012 at 11:59 am #

    I love the polka dots! Polka dots always say Spring to me!

  220. Tania February 27, 2012 at 12:01 pm #

    I love too much stuff on the Hart’s website but if I had to choose just one, I’d go for the Flower Vines cotton eyelet or the Monet Challis in purple – lovely and summery! Maybe I could convince myself to leave my comfort zone and try one of those amazing Japanese double gauze fabrics in a bold floral…

  221. Jo February 27, 2012 at 12:02 pm #

    Ooh, I regularly haunt Harts Fabric but I’ve never actually bought anything there… so much want!
    I think this aqua and white dotted fabric would make a lovely Pendrell with a draped sleeve:


    And I think this would make a cute sleeveless top!


    Ugh, too many lovely fabrics!

  222. Nora February 27, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    Wow! What beautiful fabric’s! I’m drooling! It is all so pretty that it would be very hard to choose! Pick me PICK ME! LOL!

    Nora :)

  223. Zena February 27, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    I’m liking the look of the Bamboo Spandex Jersey Knit Fabric Dark Teal. Eco-friendly and a good colour for me.


  224. Vicki February 27, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    The Liberty of London is just my cup of tea. I would love to make a beautiful summery dress. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  225. Anjomo February 27, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

    I love the Dot Scallop Border Print in red and the Leaf Dupioni Silk in green. They are just beautiful!

  226. Bridget February 27, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    I love the Anna Horner fabrics, particularly the Loulouthi it would make the perfect summery dress.

  227. Heather February 27, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

    I love some of the double gauze fabrics and the retro yellow bean silk fabric, and as always, Liberty!

  228. Becky February 27, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

    The bamboo-cotton denim looks exciting– I’d imagine those would make some great jeans! http://www.hartsfabric.com/bamboo-denim-fabric-64142.html

    Aside from that, the Triflora voile is really catching my eye–it has all of my favorite water-toned colors in it! http://www.hartsfabric.com/anna-maria-horner-voile-fashion-apparel-quilting-fabric-fabrics62064.html

  229. annyvials February 27, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

    I’d have this http://www.hartsfabric.com/designer-anna-maria-horner-floral-voile-fabric56155.html it’s gorgeous!! It might take me a long time to get up the courage to cut into it though. Trawling through patterns and blogs to find just the right project. I’m drooling just thinking about it. Thanks for the opportunity to win.


  230. Rachel February 27, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    I love the Japanese double gauzes – they are so lovely. Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway!

  231. Liz Jane February 27, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Nani Iro Japanese fabric…. sigh

  232. Valerie February 27, 2012 at 12:22 pm #

    I’ve been planning to make a trench coat this spring and rather like the oatmeal or grey linen-cotton blend for that. Besides that, I love the indigo striped cotton and envision some lovely nautical-inspired separates for the summertime!

  233. Cathy February 27, 2012 at 12:22 pm #

    I love this voile from Anna Maria Horner:

    and wouldn’t this make a great shirtdress?:

    Too many more to name!

  234. Allie February 27, 2012 at 12:22 pm #

    Would love to be able to splurge on some nice voiles! Thanks!

  235. Don February 27, 2012 at 12:33 pm #

    Maybe the liberty Lawn http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-of-london-lawn-fabric61978.html for a shirt – cause I would never buy it but I would be happy to win it

  236. Gerd February 27, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    I love the printed linen fabric
    and I akso love silk chiffon

  237. Reana Louise February 27, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    Mustard knit! http://www.hartsfabric.com/double-knit-fabric56831.html

    You see I pick this because I could totally wear it in Spring, but I can also wear it in Autumn which is what we (Australia) are going into now… TO be honest I’m looking forward to some cooler weather! But it won’t be that cool, nothing like Canada!

  238. mala_14 February 27, 2012 at 12:44 pm #

    I don’t have anything in my wardrobe that is a printed knit. I think this would make a great top for late spring and summer.

  239. Megan February 27, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    http://www.hartsfabric.com/seersucker-lavender-blue-cotton-64096.html Seersucker always means summer and its something I enjoy to the fullest when I can!

  240. bunny February 27, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    i am looking for a waterproof/resistant fabric to make my minoru jacket. this looks nice…


  241. Heather February 27, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

    I think the coated cottons would make great cheery Minoru jackets for staying dry during spring showers!

  242. roxanne February 27, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I gotta say how much of a sucker I am for sateen. It’s the perfect fabric! This red one gets my sewing mojo running!


    I also am a sucker for polka dots… this one makes my heart go pitter-patter»: http://www.hartsfabric.com/polka-dot-chiffon-fabric-fashion-apparel61798.html
    I’d make a sweet dress for summer with that one.

  243. Amanda February 27, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I love the cotton voiles! Vive le printemps!!

  244. krystina February 27, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

    I’ve been dying to make a pendrell. I really like how Hart’s has organized their website so you can just click on “blouse weight” fabrics and they pull up a bunch of different fabrics at different price points in both solids and printed fabric. It really is helpful so that you don’t have to wade through the millions of different silks, rayons, lawns, etc. I love solids and their teal silk/cotton looks lovely!

  245. Ellen M. February 27, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    I was not familiar with Hart’s Fabrics – thanks for the introduction! I think the printed linen and linen/cotton blends really shout spring and warmer weather (I love French General’s Painter de Fleurs)!

  246. Moriah February 27, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    I love all the polka dots!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  247. Christine C. MacLeod February 27, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    I’ll take any of the Liberty fabrics and the lawn fabrics. It gets so hot in VA and these look so cool!

  248. Viviana February 27, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    I have been dreaming of making some tailored dresses with pleats all winter long and I think the Organic Cotton Chambray Shirting fabric they have would do the trick! Thanks for your great blog!

  249. erin February 27, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

    I would love to try out some of their silk cotton blends. They look gorgeous and I have been too scared to sew silk because it’s expensive and I’ve heard it’s temperamental. I think a blend would be easier :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  250. Anne February 27, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    How can I pick? There are so many wonderful fabrics! I think I could jazz up my wardrobe with the zebra print rayon challis, but a spring dress made out of Liberty lawn (such as the vintage flowers) would be divine!

  251. Erin February 27, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    I’m not the same erin as above, but I also love the silk cotton blends. That is my favorite type of fabric and this store has a lovely selection of spring colors. They also have more silk cotton fabrics than I’ve seen in one place.

  252. Lisa February 27, 2012 at 1:26 pm #

    I need fabric for my minoru – maybe some dash stripe lightweight upholstery fabric? It’s hard to choose!

  253. Ella February 27, 2012 at 1:33 pm #

    I think this interlock knit is super cute, and would be a great option for the Renfrew pattern I just bought: http://www.hartsfabric.com/interlock-knit-stripe-grey-64670.html.

    This challis is also beautiful, and totally my style: http://www.hartsfabric.com/monet-challis-purple-64837.html.

  254. Amanda February 27, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    I love all the silk cotton sateens for skirts, and the striped knits for t-shirts. I am really hoping to visit Hart’s Fabrics on a trip to Santa Cruz this spring!

  255. Kirsty February 27, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    Ohh I love ’em all.
    I’ve fallen for http://www.hartsfabric.com/geometric-chiffon-fabric-fashion-apparel61697.html
    oh and http://www.hartsfabric.com/pink-dot-woven-matka-62550.html
    I need to make myself two dresses for up and coming friends weddings so i’m sure I could put it to good use.
    Thanks for a great giveaway.

  256. maggie February 27, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

    I think this polka dot rayon would make a nice light blouse http://www.hartsfabric.com/sheer-rayon-fashion-fabric61479.html

  257. Dayl February 27, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

    Ohhh! I would LOVE some new Spring fabric – I have been working with heavier weight stuff and would LOVE a CHANGE!!

  258. noreen February 27, 2012 at 1:44 pm #

    I have had a really hard time finding cute knit print in my local fabric stores. I think that the Green Cherry Check Jersey (http://www.hartsfabric.com/cherry-check-jersey-knit-fabric55221.html) is adorable! I may just have to order a few yards to make the Renfrew…

  259. Wendy February 27, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

    I love the bamboo knits – so many yummy colours.
    There was also some cotton/hemp sweater knit that I’m sure I saw my name on ;-)

  260. Renay February 27, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

    I really LOVE the digital print satins….So pretty!
    and they scream spring :-)


  261. Carol Tiffin James February 27, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

    Rayon and Cotton Fashion Fabric Cream Floral is my favorite so far….I want to make a bunch of pretty spring dresses for summer. Maine winters are so long….I’m sick of wearing black and brown and am ready for some florals!

  262. liza jane February 27, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

    Oh, how I would love to be able to order some Liberty tana lawn! I know it’s fabulous because I have a thrifted dress made in an old Wiltshire colorway. But I’ve never bought new Liberty fabric because it’s so darn expensive! So pick me!

  263. Sigrid February 27, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    I would love to sew with double gauze and adore polka-dots, so this Japanese print is what I would choose http://www.hartsfabric.com/japanese-import-fabric-double-gauze61338.html

  264. Lipstick Jane February 27, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    I’m a big fan of vibrant blues. I guess it reminds me of the ocean. I *love* being at sea. The Hawaiian Rayon Floral Aqua and the Blue Chevron Silk would make fantastic summer dresses. But I must admit I am really quite fascinated with the linen knits. The red, pink and turquoise are lovely and I think would make up nicely in the Renfrew. Although I wonder how thin they are … perhaps a wrap blouse instead.

    Thank you for offering a great giveaway.

  265. Tanit-Isis February 27, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    This may be boring, but I was really intrigued by their stretch denim selection, especially this one: http://www.hartsfabric.com/eco-hemp-denim-64200.html which is blended with hemp. I’m always really disappointed by the stretch denim I find locally, but I’m usually too chicken to order it online…

  266. nothy lane February 27, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    I love everything with polka dots! My mother loved polka dots she said they always make her smile. So I guess I am partial to them in memory of her. So yes, I love the silk-cotton polka dot fabric you have listed Tasia. But after going to the Hart’s Fabric website I can tell you that I would get the Liberty of London Red Asian Floral. It is beautiful.And the Geo Knit Silk Print Fabric is nice too. So many choices! I love the bright spring colours! I feel like I haven’t seen the sun in months – oh, yeah,that’s because I haven’t.

    Good luck everybody!

  267. Kelley February 27, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    Oh my goodness, I love looking through all these gorgeous fabrics! My favorites are this floral rayon challis (which is sadly out of stock temporarily): http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-rayon-challis-fabric61251.html and this Nani Iro double gauze: http://www.hartsfabric.com/nani-iro-fashion-apparel-fabrics-cotton-double-gauze-fabric62034.html

  268. Dee February 27, 2012 at 2:09 pm #

    I am loving Harts Fabrics selection of knits. Perhaps my Renfrew top will be cocoa stripe.

  269. Marloes February 27, 2012 at 2:13 pm #

    What amazing give away. I would love to try some Liberty of London fabric like this one :http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-london-geometric-63178.html . I’ve never sewn with such a fabric but would love to try!

  270. Gillian February 27, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    Oh my – So many pretties! I just received my Pendrell pattern in the mail, so I’d love to order some fabric for it – Maybe this? http://www.hartsfabric.com/pink-dot-woven-matka-62550.html It’s beautiful!

  271. Elizabeth February 27, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    Ah Spring! I’m so looking forward to being able to ride my bike with my kids without having to bundle up anybody! I would love to make an a-line skirt for the occasion (like Burda 11-2009-120) out of their coral cotton jacquard, a nice scoopneck (Renfrew?) in Stretch Rayon Lycra Rib Knit Fabric Navy White Stripe, and top it with a trench coat out of the Oatmeal Linen Cotton Raincoating. We would ride with the wind in our hair and stop at the park and have a picnic. Maybe we’ll do that anyhow.

  272. gwen February 27, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    They have some nice knits for tops. Love the ruffled knits. But, if I won, I would probably buy a nice coating fabric and make a dress coat for spring.

  273. Cassie February 27, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    I love the beautiful knit stripes – it would be great for the Renfrew top!

  274. Caroline February 27, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    I love prints. And it would be lovely to work with a silk/cotton. yum. I thought this bicycle print was so fun!


  275. Brianna February 27, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    I love organic cotton and I just ordered the Crescent skirt pattern, so this print would be perfectly adorable for it! http://www.hartsfabric.com/eco-commute-bike-it-64060.html

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  276. Miss K February 27, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

    This spring teal blue and sunny yellow fabrics seem to keep catching my eye for flippy warm weather dresses and skirts. Hart’s has a lovely cotton/linen blend in turquoise that would make a lovely full-skirted sundress. Or maybe a breezy blouse in this print…http://www.hartsfabric.com/heart-rashida-hale-fabric-linen62412.html

  277. Sharon February 27, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    Very generous giveaway and the Liberty of London Carnation Lawn or the Cheetah Rayon Chalis, both fabrics we don’t get here in Austarlia so they would be wonderful to have.

  278. Foster February 27, 2012 at 2:51 pm #

    Oooh–I’m looking at that very tasty Red Virgin Wool at 48.99 a yard. Something I would never treat myself too. Love looking at all the fabrics.

  279. Pavla February 27, 2012 at 2:52 pm #

    There are so many beautiful fabrics in this shop, I could list tens of them that I would love to sew with. So for example, I would love to make a shirt with this fabric: http://www.hartsfabric.com/nani-iro-fashion-apparel-fabrics-cotton-double-gauze-fabric62034.html and spring pants in this: http://www.hartsfabric.com/35870.html.

  280. Estrella Garza February 27, 2012 at 2:55 pm #

    I like to incorporate fabrics that remind me of the season in my seasonal projects. Pool water always reminds me of wonderful memories with my family as well as relaxation. seeing things like this keep me in high spirits.

  281. Suze February 27, 2012 at 2:58 pm #

    I would love to make a dress from the Liberty of London Asian Floral. At $42.99/yard, though, I might have to lose weight before I could afford enough yardage to do that! LOL

  282. Clozmkr February 27, 2012 at 3:03 pm #

    Wow – too many to choose just one, so PICK ME for the drawing so I don’t have to!!!! LOL. I was intrigued by the needle felted knit – I’m a pushover for a good knit anyway. Thanks for the offer & thanks to Hart Fabrics for supplying this great prize!!

  283. trenetta February 27, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

    I love the turquoise drop flower Japanese fabric. There are many others of course, but that’s one of my favorites. I’m drawn to turquoise for some reason.

  284. Ginger February 27, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    Oh my gosh, I love them all! I particularly like all the knits, and the peach corduroy is TOO CUTE. Thanks for the giveaway!

  285. Lori February 27, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    I fell in love with the Polka Dot Silk Cotton Lawn Fabric White the second I saw it! I have been looking for something exactly like this for a while now!!

    I also oddly like this fabric even thought it not something that I usually would like!! http://www.hartsfabric.com/hawaiian-rayon-fabric61974.html

  286. Amanda February 27, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    I get excited about the fact that even though I am in Australia I get to do some more spring sewing as I am about to head to Washington DC for the first time ever for work! Goodbye fall and hello spring!!! The Blue Shattered Sky voile is rather dreamy, I must say!

  287. Sara @ Sew Sweetness February 27, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    Awesome! I had never heard of that shop before but it’s beautiful! Definitely eyeing the Echino. I would love to win and get some Sewaholic patterns (I have fabric all ready to go for the Renfrew and the Minoru, just haven’t had any extra $$ to buy the patterns yet!)

  288. Casey February 27, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    I just bookmared this yesterday!


    Would make an adorable shift!

  289. Katrina February 27, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    I LOVE the polka dot silk-cotton lawn!

  290. Lisa S. February 27, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

    What a lot of beautiful fabrics! I love the polka dot silk cotton, all of the other silk cottons and those stripey knits are divine!

  291. Laura February 27, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    I haven’t taken the plunge into online fabric shopping yet – this would be the perfect opportunity!

    I plan to make a light, colorful, silky dress for summer, and have 3 patterns I’m debating between – which one I make will depend on the fabric! Looks like there are almost too many options to choose from at Hart Fabrics. But I’m sure I would be able to decide eventually :)

    Thanks for your posts about online shopping, btw – although I haven’t done it yet, I have been scoping out the stores your readers mentioned.

  292. Patti February 27, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

    I’ve always liked floral prints, and I love “Sheer Tree Shadows Silk Chiffon Fabric” http://www.hartsfabric.com/tree-shadows-silk-64155.html It would be my first foray into using chiffon.

  293. Amber February 27, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    This would make a beautiful wrap dress…

  294. Laurie February 27, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    Thanks to you and Harts for the giveaway. Such a mouthwatering choice of fabrics..and the variety means that I see something wonderful for every project I’ve ever conceived. If I had to choose one, I would go for the Fashion Knit Fabric Gray and White Crosshatch tencel. I can imagine making an unstructured shirt that I’d wear all of the time.

  295. Tewauna February 27, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    There are so many beautiful fabrics but i really love the polka dot fashion chiffon in white purple!

  296. Kendall February 27, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    What an awesome giveaway!! Its heading into autumn in Australia and I’ve been searching for Minoru fabric since January. The silk cotton sateens come in such nice colours I might have to order myself some even if i don’t win. The cranberry is exactly what I’ve been looking for although that royal purple colour is hard to scroll past.

  297. Nethwen February 27, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    Ooh, first time visiting this store and I like it. I’m eying the chocolate and teal polka dot knit.

  298. Laura February 27, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    Harts has too much cute fabric! $100 barely gets started on my wishlist.

    Woven Wool Fabric Fashion Blue (http://www.hartsfabric.com/woven-wool-fabric55377.html) would make for an adorable vintage suit remake.

    Ditto for Wool Shetland Fabric Camel Tweed (http://www.hartsfabric.com/wool-shetland-camel-tweed-64569.html).

    If I needed another formal Rosettes Fashion Fabric Dusty Pink (http://www.hartsfabric.com/rosettes-fashion-fabric61254.html) would make an appearance.

    Green Baby Bouquet Floral Cotton Voile Fabric by Anna Maria Horner (http://www.hartsfabric.com/designer-anna-maria-horner-floral-voile-fabric56155.html) would be an adorable spring blouse.

    Floral Bouquet Chiffon Fabric (http://www.hartsfabric.com/chiffon-print-fashion-fabric-62590.html) will make an adorable spring dress for work or fun.

  299. Jane February 27, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    I’d like to make a spring dress from pink flowered rayon challis!

  300. Myf February 27, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    I’d be buying some dreamy Linen Fashion Lightweight Sweater Knit Fabric to make your Renfrew Top for those cooler Spring days!

  301. rebeccas February 27, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    How does one choose? I’ve been looking at some of those Nani Iro double gauze florals for a while now, though. Looks like another fabric source I’ll have to “test”.

  302. Eleanor (undeadgoat) February 27, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    I noticed this beautiful silk knit print, it’s actually very close to the print I imagined in my head when searching for cotton or rayon fabric for a Lonsdale project upcoming: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-silk-knit-fabric-64167.html Of course I have NO idea what I would make with it, and at that price it would go straight to stash while I got in a lot of practice with cheaper lightweight silks totally mastered the stretch, but I would love to wear it! Maybe a cowl Renfrew? Or a drapy jersey dress?

  303. Novita February 27, 2012 at 4:27 pm #

    I want to make something orange this spring! This Swiss Dot Cotton Fabric Orange http://www.hartsfabric.com/swiss-dot-cotton-orange-64177.html looks perfect for a cute little blouse or dress.

  304. Lisa February 27, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    I love the Berry colored silk cotton. It looks lovely.

  305. Ruth Black February 27, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    I was drawn to the ponte knits and missoni fabrics.

  306. Alicia Ferguson February 27, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    This coral jacquard would be perfect to add a colourful pop to my summer wardrobe! http://www.hartsfabric.com/coral-cotton-jacquard-64677.html

  307. Crystal February 27, 2012 at 4:53 pm #

    So many great fabrics to choose from. I love cotton and silk, florals and prints.

  308. Wanda February 27, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    I would love the stripped knit for the Renfrew. I made my first Renfrew (view C) 2 weeks ago. I had so many compliments on the top. It is a great pattern; the top was so comfortable to wear and attractive to boot. I can’t wait to make more.

  309. dixie February 27, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    wow, what a great giveaway! i’m ga-ga over this blue floral rayon: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-rayon-challis-fabric61301.html

  310. Amy February 27, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

    It’s so hard to choose but I’ve been eyeing up this green rainwear fabric (http://www.hartsfabric.com/rainwear-fabric-green-65454.html) with this blue oval dot print lining (http://www.hartsfabric.com/coats-lining-fabric60921.html).

  311. Marsha February 27, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    Oh… I am dreaming of the wonderful things I could make from this Green Berry Liberty for Spring. http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-of-london-lawn-fabric61978.html

  312. Alison February 27, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    I think this Nani Iro Blue Floral Double Gauze (http://www.hartsfabric.com/imported-blue-floral-double-gauze-62030.html) is lovely. It would be perfect for spring!

  313. Cara February 27, 2012 at 5:15 pm #

    Heading into Autumn Down Under, I would have to say the organic ruby knit and the Marc Jacobs gray wool twill appeal for the wardrobe coordinating (ruby cowl Renfrew and wide leg pants), but my heart will always gravitate to Liberty of London florals.

  314. Claire February 27, 2012 at 5:21 pm #

    Oh boy! I love this voile: http://www.hartsfabric.com/alexander-henry-cotton-lawn-fabric-larkspur-in-bloom59895.html

    Plus the name is so springy!

  315. Diana February 27, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

    I am partial to this knit which I think would look great for the Renfrew top.

  316. Laura February 27, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    I gotta be boring and go for the Brussels Washer linen/rayon…

  317. Jen Beck February 27, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    I would love a chance to win!!

  318. Koreann Hearn February 27, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    I really like the “USA Made Linen Look Home Dec Fabric Keys Black.” Black old-fashioned keys on white, really striking, I think it would make a great Minarou!

  319. Linda February 27, 2012 at 5:49 pm #

    I love it! how nice and i think the polka dot in the lionsdale would be so cute :D

  320. Claire February 27, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

    I would like to make pajamas out of Robert Kaufman Cow Menagerie Cotton Fabric Blue. And something with Echino Cheater Print Deer and Owls Pink.

  321. Diane Denby February 27, 2012 at 6:07 pm #

    This fun cotton/ linen vintage look fabric just screams to me a short , fun and full version of a 1950’s pleated skirt!

    It would also make a wonderful 3/4 sleave blouse with cuffs and a high collar. Wear with jeans and sandles.

    If the skirt didn’t work out (as some of my projects do) I would recycle the fabric and use it for beautiful kitchen curtains for a fun spring/summer look.



  322. Katie February 27, 2012 at 6:08 pm #

    I have been drooling over this Anna Maria Horner Voile Shattered Sun fabric (http://www.hartsfabric.com/horner-voile-shattered-63836.html) for so long! It’s a little out of my price range, being a student and all, but it’s always caught my eye!!

  323. Jessica February 27, 2012 at 6:17 pm #

    I absolutely love the silk cottong polka dot! This dotted mesh would make a wonderful spring time blouse: http://www.hartsfabric.com/lace-fabric-mesh59269.html. And another great polka dot http://www.hartsfabric.com/polka-dot-chiffon-62580.html for a blouse.

  324. Tricia February 27, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    I love this green silk cotton. (http://www.hartsfabric.com/cotton-silk-blend-fabric57507.html) It would make a great spring dress.

  325. Elle February 27, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    I would love to make a lonsdale dress out of this voile: http://www.hartsfabric.com/voile-fabric-anna-maria-horner59893.html. Love the fabrics at Hart’!

  326. Rachael February 27, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    All of the Liberty fabrics are calling my name!

  327. Lora W. February 27, 2012 at 6:28 pm #

    I always love all of the toile fabrics. I also love this Sand Seashells Cotton Upholstery Fabric. I wonder if it would be too thick for pillows.

  328. Jessica February 27, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    Although not really practical for a spring sewing project, I’m kind of obsessed with this laminated Echino Safari print- http://www.hartsfabric.com/echino-laminated-safari-linen-65591.html

    I just love the crazy design and the bright, pop-y colors. Maybe a jacket? More likely a tablecloth :)

  329. Julie DeVoe February 27, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    The practical side of me thinks I should get some new knits for my new serger that I’m trying to learn how to use. However, with a $100 gift card, I would have to splurge on some beautiful Liberty Lawn!

  330. Buffy Ramm February 27, 2012 at 6:48 pm #

    These Melody Miller Japanese printed linens are my favourite by far! They are great to sew up for throw pillows and colourful, interesting skirts!

  331. Cynthia February 27, 2012 at 6:49 pm #

    Spring always reminds me of light cotton chinese cheongsam dresses that I wore as a girl.
    Recently I found an old 50’s pattern for one and think this fabric would be a perfect fit!


  332. Jackie February 27, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    I’ve just added many projects to my wish list thinking about this, hope I win! I’m starting to plan my beach vacation so I think a Missoni beach tunic would be the first thing I’d make with this – http://www.hartsfabric.com/missoni-zigzag-floral-turquoise-64871.html.

    And I’ve been drooling over this fabric for a while but have been reluctant to splurge because I see it as a flowy maxi dress – http://www.hartsfabric.com/fashion-fabric-silk-chiffon59047.html.

  333. Laura February 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    I really like this http://www.hartsfabric.com/monet-challis-purple-64837.html for a blouse :)

  334. Esz February 27, 2012 at 7:06 pm #

    eeeeee!! What an awesome prize! Since I am in the southern hemisphere and heading towards winter, I’m dreaming of wools….
    Like this
    I could make another version of the dress I made on my blog with this – with white embroidered wool yarn for the details…Yay!

  335. Sara February 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    Ooooohhhh! This is so exciting. I would go bananas in that store! I would love to try a renfrew top in the purple/grey knit jersey, and I have always wanted to feel the liberty of london fabric in my hands for real. The vintage blue flowers you pictured are my favourite. I have also long been coveting the Nani Iro double gauze florals. I think I would love any one of them.
    I will be on the edge of my seat :o)

  336. Michelle February 27, 2012 at 7:22 pm #

    Wow! The one that jumps out right now is the bamboo and organic cotton blend jersey, especially in blue stripe, for the Renfrew that’s due to arrive in my mailbox any day!

  337. Jill February 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm #

    I’m liking the Retro Yellow bean Plaid Silk Chiffon. It would make a cute full skirt.

  338. Miranda February 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm #

    Oh my goodness, the plaid silk chiffon! http://www.hartsfabric.com/silk-chiffon-fabric59639.html

    It’s SO adorable! I love vintage and retro inspired prints. If only I had the guts – and skillset! – to work with chiffon. I don’t think I’m quite there yet, but it’s beautiful.

  339. Miranda February 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    Also, I’m so glad I found your blog! I’ve been browsing sewing blogs and hoping to come across another local designer or seamstress. Pleased to be here.

  340. SwoodsonVintage February 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm #

    I love their organic cotton selections from Birch Fabrics! I love soft cottons, merino wools, and silks.

  341. Véro February 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm #

    That’s an amazing giveaway! I’d make a Minoru out of this cotton,
    http://www.hartsfabric.com/organic-cotton-fabric-fruit62452.html, so colourful! It wouldn’t be waterproof or anything but it’d be COOL!

  342. Melissa February 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

    Ooh! Drooling over this amazing prize! I have been coveting Liberty fabrics for a long loooong time and would love to just indulge and get some for a sweet summer dress. And, since I just received your Renfrew pattern, I’m in need of a really classic striped knit in navy or black. Fingers crossed!!

  343. Andrea February 27, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

    Yes, yes! I’d finally be able to buy some Liberty Lawn. Hart’s has so many great knits, too, that I’d buy some quirky prints like the blue birds on orange check, or the gray and black letters knit. Love it all. Thanks Tasia!

  344. Mari February 27, 2012 at 8:26 pm #

    I would have to get some of that hemp silk fabric. It sounds so amazing. I would make something simple, like a skirt, so that the focus would be on the fabric. I can’t imagine how wonderful it would feel to have the fabric transform from a stiffer & rougher fabric (from the hemp) with bits of softness running throughout (from the silk) to a very pliable & soft fabric as it’s worn & laundered more & more. I would probably spend the rest of the money on some modal as I’ve always wanted to sew with it, but have never gotten the chance.

  345. SueC56 February 27, 2012 at 8:28 pm #

    I love spring fabrics!

  346. Catharine February 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    Oh – the perfect excuse to try buying fabrics online for the first time!

  347. little betty February 27, 2012 at 8:54 pm #

    I’m loving the Sheer Polka Dot Chiffon Fabric Turquoise, the Habutai Silk Fabric Midnight, mustard ponte and the grey stripe interlock.

  348. jen February 27, 2012 at 8:55 pm #

    Oh my oh my, the choices!! Well i love this canvas fabric…would make a perfect spring time slouchy bag http://www.hartsfabric.com/echino-fabric-etsuko-furuya59489.html

  349. Clare February 27, 2012 at 9:02 pm #

    The first thing that hit me between the eyes were those Greener Pastures Kona Solids. Gorgeous!

  350. Jo B February 27, 2012 at 9:05 pm #

    All the fabrics look beautiful.

  351. Angelina S. February 27, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    I’m seriously loving the Nani Iro double gauze for summer! Pick meeeeeee!


  352. Tina C. February 27, 2012 at 9:16 pm #

    I would love some bamboo or hemp fabric!

  353. Lindsay February 27, 2012 at 9:17 pm #

    I love love love the Hawaiian Floral Blue Rayon Challis as a full swishy knee-length Springtime skirt, pared with a white button-down for a day at the office!


    Also a big thanks to Tasia for her entertaining blog and fantastic patterns. I’m a fellow Vancouverite who has yet to comment, but I’ve made four Pendrell’s so far and should be receiving my Minoru in the mail any day now… finally, patterns that I don’t need to alter to fit my pear shape!

  354. Emily February 27, 2012 at 9:28 pm #

    I LOVE this one!!!! It’s the Ivory Floral Nani Iro Double Gauze….how gorgeous is that?!


  355. Alicia February 27, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

    ooo. online fabric shopping – hours of my life will disappear! Black and white floral for me: http://www.hartsfabric.com/rayon-fabric-fashion-floral-black-white59208.html

  356. Amanda Williams February 27, 2012 at 10:04 pm #

    I love this silk – would be great for a dress – http://www.hartsfabric.com/black-floral-silk-chiffon-64116.html

  357. Jenny February 27, 2012 at 10:05 pm #

    I love this wool plaid- http://www.hartsfabric.com/wool-shetland-harvest-plaid-64573.html

    Perfect for the cooler days but welcoming in the new season with a bit of colour!

  358. Rosemary Rivas February 27, 2012 at 10:07 pm #

    You have some really unique fabrics not usually carried in your “run of the mill” fabric stores. If I won the $100 gift certificate, I would like to purchase some Japanese fabrics to go along with 2 fat quarters a neighbor gave me for looking after her house while she went to Japan. Unfortunately, she has since moved away. The fabrics she gave me are very unique and don’t coordinate with any fabrics I have or have seen in fabric stores. I don’t yet have any idea what I would make, but maybe having more fabrics that coordinate would spark an idea! Several years ago I had some very colorful cotton japanese fabric that I combined with quilting fabric and made a jacket.

  359. Kris February 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm #

    I would need to get some hemp denim for a pair of jeans or capris, and some of the Hemp Organic Cotton Denim Wave Fabric for a new tote! Wow, that’s such an awesome pattern. I’ve also been craving a striped knit tee, and the Bamboo and Organic Cotton Blend Jersey Knit Fabric Black Stripe looks good for that.

  360. Thistle February 27, 2012 at 10:23 pm #

    I’ve never made anything using linen before, but I’d love to make myself a linen sundress for this spring/summer. I also don’t use enough prints when I sew, so I think that this fabric would be perfect:

  361. Helen February 27, 2012 at 10:31 pm #

    digital silk print! That’s just the thing. :o)

  362. Emma February 27, 2012 at 10:40 pm #

    I’ve been meaning to try out a Marc Jacobs fabric, such as http://www.hartsfabric.com/marc-jacobs-wool-twill-64972.html or something like this http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-digital-silk-64873.html, but I’m not nearly confident enough in my sewing abilities yet to pay $50/yd on anything as beautiful as it is.

  363. Jill February 27, 2012 at 10:54 pm #

    How lovely! As always, picking fabric for me is the most fun part, aside from finishing that is.
    I love all of it, but this knit feels nice and nautical, perfect for a day on the water:
    Or, a nice swiss dot, perfect for spring and summer:

    Thanks for hosting, Tasia!

  364. ladykatza February 27, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

    I really really wish the Nani Iro Blue Floral would come back into stock. I want some! http://www.hartsfabric.com/imported-blue-floral-double-gauze-62030.html

  365. Donna February 27, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

    I’ve been looking at the beautiful Liberty of London prints, and cotton lawn florals but I always come back to linen, I love it for everything–blouses, pants, skirts. It just has a such a wonderful drape and weave.

  366. Velosewer February 27, 2012 at 10:58 pm #

    I love the Eyelet vines lace fabric and the green rainwear fabric for another M jacket.

  367. Kat dela Rosa February 27, 2012 at 11:21 pm #

    Oooh I would LOVE to make a collared shirt out of this purple shirting & pair it with some super hot white shorts.


  368. Ledys February 27, 2012 at 11:35 pm #

    I love them all! I love all the ones you highlighted, especially the polka dot, as well as the Nano Iro double gauze, and some of the cotton voile and lawn like Mrs Aster or Anna Maria Horner’s shattered sun. They also have an awesome mint green knit, and coral jersey… It’s all do beautiful! Thanks for such an awesome giveaway, Tasia!

  369. Jane February 28, 2012 at 12:09 am #

    Hmm so we are entering autumn, not spring and I need a new jacket. I have been trying to find some herringbone but alas no luck so far. Now I have- http://www.hartsfabric.com/marc-jacobs-wool-herringbone-64971.html. This would be perfect for what I have in mind :)

  370. Allyb February 28, 2012 at 12:22 am #

    Love this eyelet fabric http://www.hartsfabric.com/white-vine-eyelet-lace-59218.html underlined with a bright fuschia for a sleeveless pendrell!

  371. Emma SL February 28, 2012 at 12:33 am #

    Heh, every time I look at that site I see sooooo many fabrics that I would love to get (but the bank balance always says no *sigh*)
    But I have been lusting over this Liberty print so hard ever since the new season stuff came out. http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-asian-floral-red-65214.html
    I love bright colours and I lurrrve Chrysanthemums. It’s perfect!!!

  372. Sam February 28, 2012 at 1:07 am #

    Oh my, what a generous giveaway!

    I’d probably choose copper silk cotton sateen and some sheer pink flower silk chiffon.

    How fantastic!


  373. Jenn Quick February 28, 2012 at 1:12 am #

    I am really drawn to the Ikat Wave and Circle Stripe Silk Charmeuse Fabric Blue Aqua Red. I think a simple dress in this fabric would be a knockout :)

  374. G February 28, 2012 at 1:25 am #

    Love the Echino Solids Linen Cotton Mustard and the Ikat Challis Yellow

  375. Jackie February 28, 2012 at 1:49 am #

    Ooooh so much pretty fabric!

  376. Amy February 28, 2012 at 1:54 am #

    I’d love some fabric for a new dress!

  377. CarmencitaB February 28, 2012 at 2:28 am #

    I would probably choose a Liberty print if I won. Thanks Tasia, thanks Harts, this is a great giveaway!

  378. javede February 28, 2012 at 2:40 am #

    I think for spring I would like to sew a bunch of garments in teal fabric liek this one:

  379. Feminizzle February 28, 2012 at 3:40 am #

    Wow! I’m excited to get the chance to win! But I can’t choose just one fabric from this site- I want so many of them! The silk knits are great and I’ve been looking from some for a dress. I also love the Japanese double gauze fabrics- the polka dots in cream is gorgeous! At the same time, I’ve always wanted a Liberty print.

  380. Tanya February 28, 2012 at 3:50 am #

    I have so many lovely prints, I think I would choose some solid coloured fabric. The red organic chambray is lovely or maybe a brightly colored Swiss dot. Thanks for the giveaway tasia!

  381. Montana February 28, 2012 at 3:58 am #

    Ooh, I am in love with the Liberty fabric. I’ve been dying to get my grubby little paws on some of that!!

  382. Tanya February 28, 2012 at 4:45 am #

    Those missoni prints take my breath away, but I can never go past a rayon challis, I just love the way they feel in my hands! This one especially will have to be in my hands sooner or later I think… http://www.hartsfabric.com/hawaiian-rayon-fabric61967.html

  383. Lise February 28, 2012 at 4:51 am #

    Thank you for this giveaway. What an amazing fabric store ! It’s hard to choose. I think I would start with the Digital silk impressionists floral for a Pendrell and the Tula Pink prince charming for another Minoru. Keeping my fingers crossed !…..

  384. Caroline February 28, 2012 at 5:11 am #

    Yet another amazing giveaway – thanks Tasia and Hart’s Fabric!
    I think a summer dress made from http://www.hartsfabric.com/valori-wells-voile62314.html would look great, or a simple top like a sorbetto made from http://www.hartsfabric.com/cotton-voile-fabric59579.html would be a great spring/summer item of clothing.

  385. Alice February 28, 2012 at 5:26 am #

    Hi Tasia,
    I just love this floral rayon http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-rayon-challis-fabric61251.html the colours stand out so beautifully on the white background, I think it would make a super pretty pendrell!

  386. Liz February 28, 2012 at 5:50 am #

    I would get fabrics to finally make the Minoru Jacket! I love the apple green rainwear fabric with some sort of funky lining…maybe the blue polka dotted one? Thanks for the giveaway!

  387. Sherry @ A Happy Valentine February 28, 2012 at 5:51 am #

    I love the polka dot fabric! I’ve been dreaming of a spring/summer dress with fresh, bright dots! Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway!

  388. lisa g February 28, 2012 at 5:51 am #

    what an awesome giveaway! they have so many great fabrics and i have had my eye on this one recently: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-rayon-challis-fabric61301.html

    for some reason i’m always drawn to giant bold prints!

  389. Christine February 28, 2012 at 5:51 am #

    I love eyelet lace and when i was looking through it I also found this for some cute leggings for spring! http://www.hartsfabric.com/lace-fabric-mesh59269.html , but this is my new found love…http://www.hartsfabric.com/pearl-eyelet-fabric59755.html. There were so many cute fabric like this one http://www.hartsfabric.com/backyard-windy-day-65254.html. I love them all!

  390. Pauline February 28, 2012 at 5:52 am #

    I have three weddings to attend this summer and I planning the dresses I’ll make for the occasions. And while looking at all the fabulous fabric at Harts Fabric, my heart stoped when I saw this one: Greenfield Hill Voile Fabric Blueberry Mrs Aster by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit (http://www.hartsfabric.com/denyse-schmidt-voile-fabric-free-spirit60161.html)
    Very summery and perfect for a beautiful dress.

  391. Fiona February 28, 2012 at 6:07 am #

    Well there goes half of my afternoon looking through that amazing website! It’s hard to choose but I really like the polka dot chiffons in the Blouse and Dress Weight Fabric section.

  392. Leslie February 28, 2012 at 6:13 am #

    I don’t think I could make enough versions of the Renfrew I have seven already. I’m looking for something orange this time like the Laguna Cotton Jersey in Orange.

  393. TM February 28, 2012 at 6:49 am #

    I was about to go on and on about the colour yellow and organic fabric when I clicked ‘silk’ and litterally took a small gasp of air. This fabric – http://www.hartsfabric.com/marbled-digital-silk-64874.html – is a need. :)

  394. Sarah February 28, 2012 at 7:11 am #

    I’m drawn to the new “Lotta Jansdotter” prints and the “Italian Designer Green Floral Stripes”…what could they become??? :)

  395. Stitch Parade February 28, 2012 at 7:11 am #

    What a great giveaway! The Liberty of London prints as well as the Nani Iro double gauze fabrics in the Hearts Fabric website make me want to sew a few spring tops in bright colours, including another Pendrell blouse. Thanks for the chance!

  396. Ngoc February 28, 2012 at 7:20 am #

    I just need to look at the echino fabric with floral birds and it makes me smile instantly.

  397. Robin McGann February 28, 2012 at 7:35 am #

    I love their sheer abstract plum confetti silk chiffon. There’s a DKNY dress pattern I have that would look fabulous in this material. Of course, I’d have to get plum silk charmeuse for an underslip, too!

  398. KLyons February 28, 2012 at 7:44 am #

    Oh…. the silk cotton! Silk is probably my favorite fabric. I’d love to try a blend. I also love dresses made from solid colored cotton shirting. I just completed my first knit project– a Renfrew top –and it turned out fantastic! I’m so excited to be able to sew with knits now!! I saw a lovely knit with thin stripes that would make a great long sleeved tshirt. :)

  399. Retha February 28, 2012 at 8:02 am #

    The Rayon Challis Fabric Fashion Pink Floral is sooo cute! I see a little dress made out of this.

  400. Anna Roberts February 28, 2012 at 8:04 am #

    I’m loving the lawn and apparel cottons. Light and breezy things to keep me cool in the hot summer weather.

  401. petitejosette February 28, 2012 at 8:30 am #

    I love anything Liberty of London. And I’m still looking for the perfect cotton/silk voile for a dress I’ve had on my list forever…fingers crossed!

  402. Kathleen February 28, 2012 at 8:48 am #

    There’s a collection of organic cotton with all sorts of bicycle prints that caught my eye. The colors are very summery and so is the print. I really liked them.

  403. Jennifer February 28, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    I like the Laguna Cotton Jersey in pink or hot pink for a spring top.
    Thank you for a great give-away!

  404. Kira B. February 28, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    I love the Retro Asian Lawn in brown, but how to choose just one lovely fabric?

  405. lynn February 28, 2012 at 9:29 am #

    i’m excited about the anthology fabrics-the maya tree floral has my name on it.

  406. PDX Gretchen February 28, 2012 at 9:49 am #

    I love the Japanese double gauze cream Polka Dots fabric. Fun and cheery, just like spring!

  407. sunny February 28, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    The Nano Iro Floral Double Gauze is really appealing.

  408. Qui February 28, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    It’s not exactly for warm weather, but this spring I’m looking forward to taking Gertie’s coat class, and I wonder if the “Italian Imported Red Yarn Dyed Cotton Suiting Fabric” would be appropriate for the coat. I live in a mild climate and work in an air conditioned office, so a coat for spring isn’t too impractical. I’m also super lucky to live near a Hart’s fabric store–yay me :)

  409. KimL. February 28, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    OMG, that silk-cotton polka dot lawn is the perfect polka dotted printed. I have been drooling over the polka dotted look for the longest time, and in silk and cotton mix, heavenly!

  410. Jessie February 28, 2012 at 10:51 am #

    I know this is kind of boring but I liked the Michael Miller cotton in solid Iris. The color was so pretty and soothing.

  411. Lavender February 28, 2012 at 11:04 am #

    I just popped over here after browsing Hart’s linen knits for the Renfrow. Serendipity!!! I’m swooning over these choices…




  412. Jodi Bonjour February 28, 2012 at 11:08 am #

    I’d love to get my hands on some Cream Floral Silk Jersey Knit Fabric to make a glorious drapey top for spring and summer.

  413. Kat February 28, 2012 at 11:15 am #

    I love Hart’s! It’s my favorite local fabric shop!

  414. Kristi M February 28, 2012 at 11:20 am #

    I would love to do a project with any of the liberty of london. But I am also looking forward to Heather Ross’ line that is due out this summer.

  415. Rebekah Stockton February 28, 2012 at 11:23 am #

    I love Valori Wells Voile Ingrid Gypsy.

  416. terri thayer February 28, 2012 at 11:25 am #

    Hart’s is a great brick and mortar store, too. Lucky to live close enough by to visit once in a while.

  417. Andrea February 28, 2012 at 11:28 am #

    The selection of eco prints is great!

  418. AmyJoy February 28, 2012 at 11:28 am #

    I think that Anna Maria Horner’s – Voile Shattered Sun is a fantastic fabric for Spring. It reminds me of pin-wheels and fireworks. Hurry, hurry, March 21; I’m ready for Spring fun to begin!

  419. Hillary February 28, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Oh! I’ve been crushing on the Parson Gray fabric since my LQS got it in. Want, want, want!

  420. Susie February 28, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I’m excited to make baby clothes with Lotta Jansdotter’s Echo fabrics!

  421. Janice February 28, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I definitely like this floral rayon challis:

    Perfect for a blouse or dress.

  422. Mary Perez February 28, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    I love the http://www.hartsfabric.com/anthology-woodlands-trees-green-64035.html fabric! And Hearts!!!

  423. Mary J Lockwood February 28, 2012 at 11:38 am #

    I love to explore denims and twills for summer outdoor wear.

  424. Gwen Windham February 28, 2012 at 11:39 am #

    Thank you, Harts Fabrics, for another wonderful giveaway!! LOVE your shop!! One of your fabrics that always catches my eye is this one: Japanese Import Fabric Lecien Retro Floral Lake Item #: 58596 — it is SO beautiful! And definitely a perfect Springtime fabric! I can see it in a quilt, pillow cases, curtains… and it would make an adorable dress for a little girl…! Thank you so much for the chance to win!! :-)

  425. Kelley February 28, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    I can’t wait for Alexander Henry Where’s My Stash Fabric in Cream to come back into stock!
    Will be adorable for a blanket for my little man.

  426. Lisa February 28, 2012 at 11:43 am #

    I have had my eye on this fabric from hart’s for for-e-ver:


    I just love the brown/pink floral combo!

  427. Rachel February 28, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    At first I was drawn to the Blue Floral Rayon Challis. But then I saw the Echino linens. The Echino Birds Border Print Purple (http://www.hartsfabric.com/echino-border-purple-65192.html) and Kokka Echino Cotton Linen Fabric Turquoise Bird Floral (http://www.hartsfabric.com/japanese-echino-kokka-fabric-extra-wide60182.html) are my favorites. These would be fun.

  428. HipDroppedStitches February 28, 2012 at 11:46 am #

    I love this Liberty of London cotton lawn fabric (Vintage Blue Flowers)!


  429. Elizabeth February 28, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    I just found out that I am going to be a first time aunt so all the pretty pastel flannels are catching my eye! Not really for spring but I’ll be sewing for the fall :-)

  430. Sarah February 28, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    The digital printed painted rose silk is so awesome, I’d be afraid to cut it!

  431. Teri Mc February 28, 2012 at 11:56 am #

    I love your dusty pink rosettes fabric. It looks so soft & pretty.

  432. Linda February 28, 2012 at 11:56 am #

    Birch Organic Polka Dots – all colors! Everything goes with polka dots.

  433. Hollie February 28, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    LOVE Anna Maria Horner Voile Slow Dance Golden!

  434. Tiffany W February 28, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

    I would love to make a blouse from Red Paisley Rayon Challis Fabric.

  435. heather February 28, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

    drooling over the japanese prints. especially the Nani Iro Abstract Specks Double Gauze Fabric! http://www.hartsfabric.com/nani-iro-double-gauze-fabric-cotton-fashion-fabrics-apparel62032.html

  436. Amy February 28, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    I love ” Greenfield Hill Voile Fabric Cranberry Mrs Aster by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit”, there’s a few different colour ways but this is my favourite.

  437. Tiffany Young February 28, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    I love the Robert Kaufman Chicken Menagerie Cotton Fabric. I think it’d make a really cute summer dress!

  438. Tracy February 28, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    They have some darling cotton swiss dot I have been wanting to try:

  439. Renee Tallman February 28, 2012 at 12:22 pm #

    Organic cotton – but I love everything at Hart’s and I’m lucky to live eight miles away!!!!!

  440. Anne February 28, 2012 at 12:27 pm #

    I live near Hart’s (DANGEROUS) and I’m kind of in love with everything they have. However, while skimming through their website, I was really drawn to Circle Flowers Silk Chiffon Fabric Peach. It just says Spring to me!
    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  441. Deborah C February 28, 2012 at 12:29 pm #

    I love the organic cottons – polka dotts and abacus prints.

  442. Katty Lea February 28, 2012 at 12:30 pm #

    I love the Pearl Eyelet Cotton Fabric White. I would make a loose blouse, tunic, skirt or dress…. so many possibilities. I love eyelet.

    OR the Indigo Stripe Yarn Dyed Cotton Fabric. Stripes are always wonderful. I would make a mens-shirt inspired tunic to wear over sheer tights or leggings.

    Great giveaway! That was fun. Time to continue to drool over fabric….

    – Kat

  443. Heather S. February 28, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

    I want to make a funky maxi dress out of some knit like this


  444. Brie February 28, 2012 at 12:37 pm #

    I love the organic Kokka Zoo Flower and Giraffe Line! Soo cute!

  445. Marchelle February 28, 2012 at 12:41 pm #


    The chevron silk chiffon here: http://www.hartsfabric.com/chevron-striped-silk-chiffon-fabric61719.html

    is gorgeous!!

    thanks for the giveaway!

  446. VictoriaR February 28, 2012 at 12:42 pm #

    What a wonderful giveaway. I love the green knit.

  447. Megan H February 28, 2012 at 12:42 pm #

    Love Hart’s oilcloth and Japanese cottons! I have my eye on at least six different fabrics at the moment.

  448. Mariló February 28, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

    Wow! This is a great giveaway. I love fabric. I would buy knits with stripes, and I love the green one you choose. And I love the silk cotton voile plaid.

  449. Aurora Celeste February 28, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

    I really need some new blouses, and the purple monet challis would be perfect:


    Thanks for running this contest!

  450. Chris P. February 28, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    I love Liberty of London fabrics. http://www.hartsfabric.com/liberty-of-london-lawn-fabric61977.html

  451. VickiT February 28, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    I am keeping busy with making baby things since we just had #2 Grandchild (boy) born 6 months ago and #3 Grandchild (girl) born 2 weeks ago this past Sat. Because of that I’m searching out things needed to make quilts, blankets, burp cloths, bibs, tummy time blankies, etc. And for the Granddaughter, cute little girly outfits too.
    The fabrics I saw which I LOVE or also need (and two I hadn’t seen elsewhere before) are Children at Play by Sarah Jane, Monsterz by Cloud 9, and the Italian Double Sided Terry in Aqua plus the Plush Minkee. I had not seen the plush Minkee yet but have been searching around as I had time so that was a great find. I don’t want the Minkee dot because I do machine embroidery on that fabric for the blankets. Gosh, I would love to win. I would have NO problem spending that prize at all. Of course, I’m sure anyone else would have just as easy of a time doing it too. LOL

    THANK you for this giveaway.

  452. Christy February 28, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    I am loving anything with yellow right now. And chevrons!

  453. Mariclare McKnight February 28, 2012 at 1:39 pm #

    I love the Anna Maria Horner Lou Louthi Velveteen ZagZig in Garnet. http://www.hartsfabric.com/loulouthi-velveteen-zig-65146.html I also love all the great stretch lace Hart’s carries! Thank you Hart’s.

  454. Kim February 28, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    We don’t have a lot of great fabric choices in my area. Hart’s Fabrics website had so many choices! I loved all of the Silk cotton sateen fabrics in lots of colors. Perfect for a blouse or summer dress.

  455. Caitlin February 28, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    I would choose some Echino train, car, and scooter print quilting cottons and hope that someday I’ll have a boy to make a quilt out of them for!

  456. Maggie February 28, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    Love, love, love the Japanese Imports and the Organic Cotton…must get my hands on some :)

  457. Gabi February 28, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    I love Joel Dewberry Heirloom Voile Tile Flourish- it’s orange/ tangerine and totally Sold Out of course. But am loving The Dewberry Heirloom collection and the Nani Iro collection (mostly the Imported Nani Iro Blue Floral Double Gauze) in Navy. What a great giveaway.

  458. Laura A February 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    I really like the new geometric and poppy liberty prints !

  459. Elizabeth G February 28, 2012 at 2:47 pm #

    I love the Adventures With Alice line from Robert Kaufman. Thanks!

  460. annalouiza February 28, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    Ivory Floral Nani Iro Double Gauze Cotton Fabric, Heather Ross Horse Girls Fabric Natural, Liberty of London Geometric,
    Liberty of London Asian Floral Red
    Seriously, i could fall in love with these lovelies!

  461. Katrina February 28, 2012 at 3:07 pm #

    Where to start…?

    I like Hawaiian Rayon Challis Fabric Floral Aqua for a summer dress, Needle Felted Spiral Knit Fabric for a versatile top, and Anna Maria Horner Lou Louthi Velveteen Summer Totem Emerald just to stare at…who knows what I’d use it for. :) Maybe a tote bag or a wacky skirt or a pillow.

    I hadn’t heard of this store yet. Thanks for the tip.

  462. Tina B February 28, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    Their selection is gorgeous. I would LOVE to win. Thanks to Hart’s Fabrics!

  463. pattyskypants February 28, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    Always love this Liberty of London. Some while ago I subscribed to the newsletter and I have to say that I really enjoy it! I love knowing about the specials and reading about the various sewing projects by staff. xxoo

  464. Barb Neiwert February 28, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    Since I’m not quite ready for spring, let alone summer, I’m still looking at flannel, like the Valori Wells Karavan Marrakech Flannel Fabric in Peacock. Snow storm coming in tonight!

  465. katie February 28, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    I am loving the pink and the blue floral rayon challis! I’d love to make a summer dress with a swishy skirt.

  466. Jenn February 28, 2012 at 5:03 pm #

    I absolutely love, love, love this fabric:

    I have been looking for the perfect fabric for a wrap dress, and this is it! I love the pattern and the colors!!

  467. aleah February 28, 2012 at 5:06 pm #

    There is too much good stuff on that site! Voiles always seem like spring to me, too, and I’ve always wanted to sew with Liberty cottons but have never wanted to spend that much, so that’s what I’d do if I won!

  468. LeAnn February 28, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    I’m loving the Birch Organic Abacus prints.

  469. Emily February 28, 2012 at 5:17 pm #

    I like the striped knits and the rosettes. :)

  470. Marianne February 28, 2012 at 5:43 pm #

    I love the Linen Fashion Lightweight Sweater Knit Fabric in Dark Mushroom!

  471. Helen McGovern February 28, 2012 at 5:49 pm #

    Love the Nani Iro double gauze navy floral (currently out of stock). Everytime I see it, I want it more and more. Yum. http://www.hartsfabric.com/imported-blue-floral-double-gauze-62030.html

  472. Kari February 28, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    I love their selection of knit fabrics. I received my Renfrew pattern a couple of weeks ago and would love to use some of their knits!

  473. Naomi February 28, 2012 at 6:12 pm #

    i love all their knit fabrics! i’d want to make a light spring cardi along with some cute tops

  474. Nadine Woods February 28, 2012 at 6:17 pm #

    I have to agree that the Polka Dot Silk Cotton Lawn is awesome but I also like the White Artistic Abstract Black and White Jersey.

  475. Christa February 28, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

    Im loving the new Lotta Jansdotter fabrics!

  476. Nicole at Mommy Moxie February 28, 2012 at 6:27 pm #

    Seriously, choose just one?!? The Liberty line is gorgeous, but I would love some linen for a pair of great summer pants. I could make $100 go a long way!

  477. Sandy S February 28, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

    Oooh – the Hawaiian Rayon Challis Fabric in Floral Aqua is calling me! Thanks for the giveaway.

  478. Beata February 28, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

    Although summer is ending where I am, I am still dreaming of a dress made of eyelet lace, with a contrasting lining! The Turquoise Vining Floral Lace Fabric (http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-lace-fabric61090.html) is really cool!!

  479. MissAmy February 28, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

    One of the benefits of living in the sub tropics is that you can wear bright colours all the time! I’m in love with the all the Nani Iro double gauzes – so lovely even if us in the Southern Hemisphere are coming into Autumn…

  480. Hazel Mason February 28, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

    Wow! too much choice…
    I love the cloud 9 organic cotton pedal pusher. Really impressed by the choice of organic and eco fabrics!

  481. Gabrielle February 28, 2012 at 7:22 pm #

    I like the plaid silk cotton voile.

  482. Rosalie February 28, 2012 at 7:50 pm #

    I love the Commute Ride Pool Organic Cotton. the bicycles printed on the bias are a wonderful touch for a springtime skirt or as a detail piece with the sold blue as the body of a blouse.

  483. New Ribena February 28, 2012 at 8:23 pm #

    I am excited to find linen knits!

  484. Ruth February 28, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

    How is it that I’ve never seen Harts Fabric before?! Wow, the selection is amazing! The floral silk jersey is calling my name. Luv, luv, luv.

  485. Kristin February 28, 2012 at 10:12 pm #

    I am addicted to floral rayon challis! This one would make a cute dress or blouse: http://www.hartsfabric.com/rayon-challis-fabric61503.html

  486. Sarah! February 28, 2012 at 10:28 pm #

    I would totally buy some ruffled knit fabric to make a skirt, because they don’t carry ruffled fabric in my local fabric store. I’d also buy some plainer knits- I’m dying to make some knit dresses!

  487. Candace February 28, 2012 at 10:33 pm #

    Oh I would love to get my hands on some Nani Iro double gauze or a beautiful bamboo knit!! so great!

  488. Erin F February 29, 2012 at 12:03 am #

    I’ve been dying to get my hands on some Cape Anne by Oliver+S Clothing White. Thanks for a chance to win!

  489. Petra February 29, 2012 at 12:24 am #

    Too much choice! I’d love to have some striped knits for upcoming summer! The citrus stripes are amazing!

  490. Elisa February 29, 2012 at 2:39 am #

    I make handbags and I recently purchased some beautiful handwoven ikat from Hart’s Fabric shop. I would love to try out all their gorgeous ikats especially the bright colors that are perfect for spring!

  491. Leeanne February 29, 2012 at 3:32 am #

    I love the stretch ruffle fabric. I saw someone in a coffee shop the other day with a very simple style t-shirt made out of this fabric and have been looking for it ever since!

  492. Mary February 29, 2012 at 4:24 am #

    I need to make a dress to wear to a friends wedding and there are so many choices! I especially like the Monet Challis Green.

  493. Sarah February 29, 2012 at 5:08 am #

    It’s heading into Autumn where I am so here are a couple of fabrics that are getting me excited for Autumn…the green dot drapey woven matka is lovely and I’m imagining it made up as a 50’s-style wiggle dress. The red retro geometric chiffon would make a sweet pussy bow blouse for work.

  494. Franciska van lin February 29, 2012 at 5:17 am #

    Hallo, love the Missoni knits, or any off the wonderful striped knits, love to wear me made tee,s, they fit so good.

  495. Michael February 29, 2012 at 6:01 am #

    I’d love to make a simple, spring-y quilt– and the colors of the Birch Polka Dots and Abacus prints would be lovely for that… But some Lotta Jansdotter’s new designs– particularly the Dandelions and Leaf Vine– are also charming… and ooh, I see a print of strawberries, too…

  496. Lynne L. February 29, 2012 at 6:28 am #

    My absolute favorite is this lovely Japanese double gauze ( http://www.hartsfabric.com/naomi-ito-japanese-fabric-dots61865.html). It looks like those candy dots on paper that I loved as a kid!

  497. Meredith February 29, 2012 at 6:38 am #

    Thank you so much for this source! I have very, very limited fabric around me, and it’s 100s of miles to better selection. I just made my first Renfrew top, and I love love the pattern, but my fabric choice was pitiful. I’m dying to make some more, and I’m so glad I know where to get some excellent fabrics for them!

    Since we’ve had such a mild winter, I’m not dying for spring like I usually am this time of year. And since I’m just getting in to sewing, I’m still thinking about the winter projects I’m learning on. These knits for more Renfrew tops, though, will be perfect all-season garments.

    I always learn so much from your blog! Thanks again!

  498. PepperReed February 29, 2012 at 6:40 am #

    Oooh Boy! It’s so hard to choose! I’d have to say that the linen knit in rust is my fave; I have a wonderful skirt made out of linen knit and I just adore the fabric. A close second is the Anna Maria Horner Shattered Sun Voile; just lovely!

  499. Daneilia February 29, 2012 at 7:10 am #

    A couple of my faves are:
    Organic Cotton Crosshatch Fabric Turquoise
    Birch Organic Polka Dots Orange

    They have really cute fabric and a array of them to choose from.

  500. Kate February 29, 2012 at 7:19 am #

    Has to be best of British and Liberty prints – just can’t get enough of their pretty and timeless designs.

  501. Dana February 29, 2012 at 7:23 am #

    I’m new to the sewing blogs and somewhat of a beginner sewer. It’s great to know about all the on-line fabric resources since there are few fashion fabric options where I live. Anyway – I love cotton and I think cotton sateen is quickly becoming a favorite. I love the silk cotton polka lawn you show above and I’m seriously considering it for a lovely summer dress.

  502. K80 February 29, 2012 at 7:58 am #

    I would love to try one of the Eco or Striped knits on the Renfrew top!

    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!!

  503. Shayla McConnell February 29, 2012 at 8:03 am #

    all things polka dots gets me sooo excited for spring!

  504. Christine February 29, 2012 at 9:03 am #

    such a great giveaway! I’m on a total Liberty of London kick right now, so I’d likely pick up some more of that… and perhaps their new book too! yay!

  505. Latrice February 29, 2012 at 9:25 am #

    Most of my favorite fabric is sold out, go figure.
    Tho the Coat Lining Fabric Red Dot on Creamy White would look good for my cape coat.

    Thank you for hosting the giveaway.

  506. AnnieV February 29, 2012 at 9:37 am #

    For a long time, I want to sew a blouse from double gauze… Hart’s fabrics has many wonderful patterns like the plaid with springy colors!

  507. Deanna February 29, 2012 at 9:57 am #

    i’ve been drawn to stripes lately and something like this http://www.hartsfabric.com/striped-silk-chiffon-fabric61791.html screams Spring to me! It would make a lovely blouse or even a nice flowing dress.

  508. Holly February 29, 2012 at 10:07 am #

    This is so fun. I love “window” shopping for fun fabrics online! This pink dotted fabric is so cute, I would love to make anything with it! It’s one of those fabrics I would buy without having a plan for it, just because it’s so lovely. :)


  509. Amy K. February 29, 2012 at 10:15 am #

    I had never seen that website before, but I love how their fabrics are categorized. I’m a beginner, so I have trouble judging if something is appropriate for a dress. I’m going to check out their site in more detail later.

    Here is the fabric that I would love to have:


    I recently bought a scarf that looks just like this!

  510. Sarah February 29, 2012 at 10:19 am #

    I am dying to make a flowy circle skirt out of this beautiful raspberry gingham:

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  511. Jane February 29, 2012 at 10:24 am #

    I love LINEN. It’s my favorite fabric to sew with. :)

  512. Yzobela February 29, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    Awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

  513. Detra Morgan February 29, 2012 at 10:41 am #

    Me! Me! Me! Pick me. I have returned to sewing after thirty years and I am really enjoying myself. The fabrics I like are Duo Tone Floral Silk red and white so summery. The retro yellow bean chiffon, I can see as a dress. The Hawaiian rayon challis blue I would make a shirt. There are so many great choices to choose from. I am happy to find out about your site. Thanks.

  514. Lisa February 29, 2012 at 10:50 am #

    I seriously shouldn’t of checked that site . I love so many things on there. I especially love the High end fashion section. The Pink dot drapey woven Matka is simply gorgeous !!

  515. Isobel February 29, 2012 at 10:51 am #

    My daughter is studying Japanese at the School of
    Oriental and African studies, University of London. She is a great dressmaker and last weekend was part of the Hyper Japanese Fashion Event at Earl’s Court. It would be lovely to make her a surprise dress for summer from the Ivory floral double gauze from the Nanu Iro collection of Japanese fabrics, when she comes home for Easter.

  516. Katie February 29, 2012 at 11:08 am #

    Oh, I love Hart’s Fabric! I’ve ordered from them twice and both times have been very pleased with their service. My favorites on their site are the Liberty fabrics and also the double gauzes. $100 would be a great excuse to splurge!

  517. beth February 29, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    Although it’s unfortunately temporarily out of stock the Ikat Challis Green would make a gorgeous spring dress.

  518. Ella February 29, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    What a nice giveaway for us stashaholics….

  519. Máire February 29, 2012 at 12:16 pm #

    I found your blog a while ago when I decided I was going to learn how to sew. Not only has it unearthed a world of craft I didn’t know existed but now another store I could spend way too much time browsing. I have already! Oh the choices! There are some lovely organic cotton fabrics. I particularly like the colours and patterns of these:

  520. Amber February 29, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    I love this red and natural striped jersey knit, perfect fabric for making soft, easy going boat neck tunics

    and this blue bubbly print (bubbles batik blue) perfect for making a pretty summer dress.


  521. Sue February 29, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    If I won this I wouldn’t know what to choose! I checked out the website and was like a kid in a candy shop; so much variety and exciting colours & textures. I love the voiles & cottons for the summer. Love the flowery fabrics but they just don’t suit me at all but there were some lovely swiss dot cottons (loved the purple) and plain cotton voils (can’t beat white for summer). All kinds of linen mixes, some I’ve never heard of, which would be great for jacket & pants. I noticed a Linen/cotton raincoat in light grey which would be great for the Minori jacket which I intend to make as soon as I have finished other projects!

  522. karen mackay February 29, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    One daughter is getting married this year and a friend and I are making her dress whilst the younger one has just said she wants lots of long stretch-knit t-shirt tops (I so want that renfrew pattern). What more can I say!

  523. Lisa February 29, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I just received the pendrell blouse pattern so I’m already picturing it in one of the silk fabrics!

  524. Mike February 29, 2012 at 1:27 pm #

    Some of the Knit Modal Fabric would make some great tees when the weather gets warmer!

  525. silvia February 29, 2012 at 1:30 pm #

    Ooh, it would be tough to decide but it would be a toss up between Liberty and Japanese double gauze. I’d probably drive to the shop (it’s not all that far really) and spend all my cash by not being able to decide.

  526. Vivienne February 29, 2012 at 1:52 pm #

    I love the Anna Sui black lace with pink flowers!

  527. kristen shields February 29, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    I love anna marie horner, her patterns are just adorable!

  528. Shanna February 29, 2012 at 2:04 pm #

    What a great giveaway!! I am in love with the Birch line!! It is just perfect for spring :o)

  529. Cathy Byrd February 29, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    Michael Miller Fabric Charcoal Dinky Daisies

    Cathy Byrd

  530. Katie February 29, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    I fancy some cotton velvet or corduroy – they have some lovely plummy colours, and they have some really pretty tartan wools. I spend all winter craving summer things and now we’re getting into spring and I want wool and corduroy! Though they have some nice silks and voiles, lots of nice blues!

  531. Kase February 29, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    I can’t get enough of polka dots and stripes!! :D

  532. susy February 29, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    I love Birch Fabric’s Commute collection that Harts carries. But then I love just about everything in their store! I have the great good fortune of living close enough that I can considere it my local fabric store!

  533. Linda February 29, 2012 at 3:13 pm #

    This Nani Iro Double Gauze (http://www.hartsfabric.com/nani-iro-fashion-apparel-fabrics-cotton-double-gauze-fabric62034.html) is incredibly beautiful. Really, anything with bright colors in a nice soft fabric that will be worn next to your skin would be exciting.

  534. Carla G February 29, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    I love all the bright colored patterned cottons. I especially love the Ocean Surf Turtles Fabric Blue. Very cute! My boys love these kind of fabrics for shirts for spring/summer. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

  535. Debra February 29, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

    These fabircs are wonderful, and it is hard to choose just one. I love the wave and circle stripe sild charmeuse and would love to win! Thanks for writing yoru great blog and for having the give-away.

  536. Sequana February 29, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

    It may be the time of the year, but I love that green fabric. So great for March and that holiday. Thx for the chance to win.

  537. seeks February 29, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    I am smitten with the double gauzes, particularly the ones out of stock. ;) The Deer in Woods print makes me pine for springtime even though we’re getting wonderful spring weather already. :)

  538. Pam February 29, 2012 at 5:31 pm #

    Harts stock a fabulous range of fabrics!!!! Thanks for the link. I really like the ‘Anthology Batik Floral Cotton Fabric’. Thanks for the chance to win.

  539. Carol February 29, 2012 at 7:34 pm #

    Love, Love, Love the Missoni Line. I just want to buy everything!

  540. Nique February 29, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    I love the Sheer Peacock Print Silk Chiffon Fabric!

  541. Heather February 29, 2012 at 8:12 pm #

    I love the Rayon Stripe Knit Cocoa fabric!

  542. Shelley February 29, 2012 at 8:36 pm #

    I absolutely love the Alexander Henri Kaori floral white fabric. I also love, for a bit of fun, the brain freeze ice cream cone fabric!

  543. Cathi February 29, 2012 at 9:11 pm #

    So many gorgeous fabrics, but the organic cotton lycra knit medallion blue is wonderful. Organic, a knit, great colour and a pretty pattern….perfection!

  544. Ellen February 29, 2012 at 11:21 pm #

    Love the rayon fabrics – woven and knit!

  545. lunachick265 February 29, 2012 at 11:54 pm #

    What a generous give-away! I’ve had my eye on the Marc Jacobs Wool Silk Herringbone, for some work separates, and the wide aqua strip jersey. I know I’d wear that all summer if I made a t-shirt from my shiny new Renfrew pattern!

  546. Bella March 1, 2012 at 3:53 am #

    What a generous offer – they have some lively fabrics!

  547. Lynn Madonich March 1, 2012 at 4:50 am #

    I love Hart’s Fabric Store in Santa Cruz, CA because of their wonderful selection of knits galore! They have many colors of Ponte knits, rayon and lycras in yummy colors and gads of jersey knits. It’s sew inspiring! I’m so glad I finally visited the store last spring and summer. Also their online sales are great. I found a great rainproofed linen/cotton fabric and made a trench coat! Happy March!

  548. Megan March 1, 2012 at 5:02 am #

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I could spend hours browsing that site, picking out things that I love… I’d probably have to go with some of the organic fabric, I have so much trouble finding nice (i.e. not homespun that feels all scratchy and cheap) organic fabric where I live.
    Thanks so much for hosting this!!

  549. Corinne March 1, 2012 at 6:59 am #

    What a great site and their fabric selections are outstanding. As soon as I saw the Birch Organic Abacus Dots and Stripes, I swooned. What a great look for a Spring/Summer dress!

  550. Leslie March 1, 2012 at 7:26 am #

    What a great site! I was thinking of making a light scarf for spring (once my wools are too warm).
    This chiffon:
    or some double gauze:
    would be so fun!

  551. Erin March 1, 2012 at 7:30 am #

    I love how the fabrics are organized by color. It is so visually pleasing! I think right now I’m drawn to making a bright sundress from something like the Anna Maria Horner Loulouthi Voile Coreopsis Lichen.

  552. Dilek March 1, 2012 at 8:19 am #

    I like this one for a renfrew top:

    and this one would be perfect for a summer dress:

  553. zilredloh March 1, 2012 at 8:20 am #

    Wow! There are a ton of entries!

    I love the polkadot fabric you first posted: how wonderful a cotton-silk blend would be for summertime.

    I also found this floral silk knit fabric that screams springtime to me: http://www.hartsfabric.com/floral-silk-knit-fabric-64167.html

    Happy sewing. :)

  554. Susanne B March 1, 2012 at 8:52 am #


    A dress out of this Nano Iro double gauze: http://www.hartsfabric.com/imported-blue-floral-double-gauze-62030.html
    A skirt out of this purple Carolina Chambray: http://www.hartsfabric.com/cachpu.html

    Now on to the sewing!

  555. Diana L March 1, 2012 at 9:07 am #

    I love Hartz Fabric! I’m in northern California so I’m close enough to go visit in person once in a while, but mostly I shop with them online. I’m really interested in trying some of their silk-cotton blends – sateen or voile. Of course, there are a few rayon challis prints that have caught my eye as well. Mmmmm, fabric!

  556. Crystal H. March 1, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    I LOVE this fabric for my newest baby boy cousin – would make a great bib, hat, sleeper!


  557. Rebecca G March 1, 2012 at 11:43 am #

    i want drapey sexy fabrics for spring!

  558. Amelia March 1, 2012 at 12:02 pm #

    I would absolutely love to win some fabric. I am especially attracted to that green & white abstract print, very cool.

  559. Binks March 1, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    It’s not super spring-y, but I’m all excitable over Curious Nature by Parson Gray. LOVE.

  560. ilse March 1, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    I hope I can still squeak in under the deadline!!
    The polkadot is definitely my favourite.

  561. Amanda March 1, 2012 at 12:37 pm #

    wow! what a great offer! I’m just finishing up a dress in cotton sateen, and I adore it, but would love to try the silk cotton sateen in all the amazing gorgeous colours Hart’s carries

    … also loving the idea of trying lawn or voile for the Lonsdale dress for spring/summer :) Look at this gorgeous orange swiss dot!!!! So pretty ^__^

  562. Tasia March 1, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    Hey everyone! The winner has been selected and will be announced tomorrow morning on the blog. Thanks for all the entries, I’m excited to see so many people commenting! (Although, it sure is a great prize, so I’m not surprised!)

    Thanks for entering and thanks again to Hart’s Fabric for offering such a fantastic giveaway prize!

  563. Claudia March 30, 2012 at 4:56 am #

    were can I find the silk white with dark polkadots? the website that it links to doesnt have it thanks!!

    • Tasia March 30, 2012 at 11:01 am #

      Hi Claudia! It was on the Hart’s Fabric website, if it isn’t there anymore perhaps they’ve sold it all by now! (Which is probably my fault for mentioning it, and I never got any for myself either…)
