oilcloth and a giveaway


through the small world of blogs and twitter, i was asked by the wonderful kelly mccants of oilcloth addict to help out in her country living fair booth. well, she didn't have to ask me twice! plus, the icing on the cake was when she said i could sell my aprons and hoop art in her booth. i said it to my friends all day long, and i will say it here - kelly is truly one of the most generous people i have ever met. the opportunity she gave me to be a part of this festival means more than she knows.

so, i spent saturday cutting and rolling oilcloth for the thousands of people who came through the gates - um, can you say workout. seriously, i never knew that rolling oilcloth would make me break a sweat! i worked with 5 great women all day saturday and met so many fun people coming through the booth. i hope all of your oilcloth projects turn out beautifully!!!


did i mention that kelly was generous? she sent me home with a signed copy of her new book "sewing with oilcloth" from wiley publishing as a giveaway for one of my blog readers. just leave a comment here letting me know what you love about oilcloth. that's it! the giveaway will run for a week and a half, ending on sunday, november 6th. i will announce the winner on monday, november 7th. *be sure to leave an email or blog link so i can contact you if you are the winner!

  4. Bought the oilcloth flag banner at the Country Living Fair this past weekend and can we say "AMAZING!!!!" Not only are the oilcloth patterns beautiful but very durable! I will use my banner for years to come and look forward to making crafts of my own with this new product I have discovered that has captured my heart!

  11. My goodness....what a generous friend you have an oh the beauty of oil cloth. I have to say that I was attracted to oil cloth from the first day I saw it. The colors are amazing. The prints often remind me of my grandma's old table clothes.

  12. It's karma that I found your blog. My adult daughter has always wanted a "waterproof" apron to keep her dry when she does the dishes. She is plus-size, so has trouble finding something pretty AND utilitarian. This may be just my ticket. Thanks.
