Summer Job-ette + Studio Scraps Giveaway

I am very happy to share that I'll be spending some time this summer working at South Street Linen, a gorgeous little apparel and home goods shop that features artist-designed gems made from highest-quality linen.


The brainchild of three talented Maine artists, the shop carries luxe, handmade clothing, accessories, and table linens, perfect for someone like me with fabric on the brain.  Obviously, this is one of my favorite spots:


As for my favorite new item, this scarf is pretty amazing... c'mon, magenta stitching?!?

Much of South Street's work features hand-printed fabric, and to celebrate my new job, I'm giving away a pack of linen studio scraps! It includes everything pictured below, plus a couple surprises.


Some pieces include hand-printed proofs that may or may not have made it to production, making them absolutely one-of-a-kind. They're perfect for small projects or as accents on a quilt, and I'm currently working on an all-linen quilt top experiment.



To enter, visit South Street Linen on Facebook, hit that "Like" button, and leave a comment here to let me know you did by 5:00 pm EST on Friday, June 28.

For a second entry, or if you don't do Facebook, let me know in a comment what item in the store is your favorite!


I'll pick a random comment and notify the winner by email by Sunday, June 30,  so please make sure you leave an email address in the comment (either through your Blogger account by making your email address "visible," or by including it in the comment text) to be eligible.

Again, Make sure you're not a "no-reply" blogger (I used to be one without knowing!), or leave your email in the comment, please!

If you're visiting Portland, stop in and say hi! If you can't make it in person, much of what's available in the store is available for purchase via web, too.

In the past, here are some things I've made with other South Street Linen scraps:

EDIT: congratulations to Stephanie, with comment #13, the lucky winner!!
