Sewjournal – Hawthorne Threads Give Away!

Colour picking

Today’s the day! Hawthorne Threads have generously  offered my readers the chance to win a US$50 gift voucher! You have two chances to go in the draw , I’ll explain in a minute.

Quilter- friendly website

The Hawthorne Threads website is so quilter-friendly. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but if you click on a particular fabric all the main colours in that fabric appear at the bottom of the screen. Then you can click on any one of them to find co-ordinating prints.

Another feature I really like is their colour grid where you click on a colour and it brings up a page where you can see all the fabrics with that colour in it.

Then you can also refine your choice by how dominant that colour is and how close in colour the fabrics are to the colour you picked. Have a play, it’s really useful.

So, how can you win?

Chance No: 1 – Visit the Hawthorne Threads website and browse their extensive fabric collections. Then come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favourite collection is.

Chance No: 2 – Over on the left column is a box that says “Get posts by email!“. Just add your email address and subscribe and you’ll get the blog posts in your inbox each day. You don’t need to leave me another comment  because I will add everybody on the subscription list to the draw. (So if you’re already subscribed you’re automatically in the draw.) Please note that a confirmation email will be sent and you need to click on this to confirm your subscription. If you don’t, then you won’t be subscribed and your name won’t appear in the list or be in the draw. So please, if you don’t get a confirmation email, check your SPAM filter.

The draw will be open until Friday Sydney time. Good Luck!

    Cosmo Cricket: Early Bird

    Thanks for the great give away!


  • Cathy A says:

    My favorite collection of theirs right now is Sugar from Art Gallery. Lovely!

  • delia says:

    Hawthorne Threads has such an awesome collection of fabric. I will have to buy from them in the near future. I had a hard time picking one favorite, but I’ll choose SEI Playday. Thanks!

  • Lynne says:

    My Favourite collection is Far Far away 11 by Heather Ross arriving in August. Just love the Meadow.
    In the current range I would have to chose Alice Kennedy’s Poppy Lane :-)Love the Collections of Hawthorn Threads. So refreshing

  • Dee says:

    My favorite(s) are Naturella and Nature by Pat Bravo. Hawthorne is also one of the few places that carry Pat Bravo patterns. My favorite quilting spot!

  • Emily S says:

    Far Far Away II is definitely my favorite right now. I was lucky enough to be at my computer when the email went out saying that it was in stock and I quickly bought some up before they sold out!

  • Dee says:

    I stand corrected! The Nature and Naturella designs are by Art Gallery Fabrics; I got all caught up and confused because my favorite quilt ever is a Pat Bravo pattern MADE WITH Naturella and Nature by Art Gallery! Sorry!!

  • Lindi Jarman says:

    Thanks for directing me to their site. What a fabulous range and I love the way they have set up the site.
    So many lovely collections! I particularly loved Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey!

  • Jennifer says:

    I love Hawthorne Threads! I don’t remember how I found them, but I’ve been almost exclusively ordering from them since. It’s hard to say what my favorite fabric is since it changes frequently, but today my favorite is the Rosemary Lavin Spa collection. I received it from HT just yesterday, actually. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Amy Sheneman says:

    My favorite collection today is Rosemarie Lavin’s Spa collection. I just bought a few yards from Hawthorne Threads the other day and can’t wait to get them.

  • tayamg in WI, USA says:

    Oh, there’s no way I could pick one. I’ve narrowed it down to every single thing by Alexander Henry, Patricia Bravo, My Minds Eye (new to me), and Laura Gunn. That’s close to picking just one, right 🙂

  • Linda says:

    I would have to say that Laurie Wisburn’s “Tufted Tweets” is my favorite right now, although there are SO MANY others that I love! 😎

  • My very fave and coveted collection right now is Caitlin by Alexander Henry. I adore stuff by Jane Sassaman, Michael Miller, Amy Butler and lovelovelove Riley Blake Designs.

  • Lauren says:

    I love the new Michael Miller Pretty Bird in Lime. I love Hawthorne threads, they are wonderful to deal with.

    Far Far Away 2 is on my want list for sure, but there are so many lines that Hawthorne Threads carries that I love.

  • Nancy says:

    I really like anything by Alexander Henry. The prints are so cute for kids’ clothes!

  • Chirp, Early Bird and Freebird are among my favorites, but how can I pick just one out of all the wonderful fabric lines they carry? Impossible!

    Nice giveaway!


  • Renae says:

    Hmmmnnn, well if I had to make a list (which I just have to go back and do now…..), I would have to put SEI (Robert Kaufman) – Playday at the top!

  • Hollie says:

    I love Hawthorne Threads. Right now I am really digging the Brooklyn Heights line by Kitty Yoshida.

I think I’m going to have to purchase Chirp because it’s so adorable, and the panel print’s on sale. It’s hard to pick a favorite among so many beauties, but for today, I’ll go with Spa for neutrals, and Pretty Bird for brights. Tomorrow is another day!
