Sponsored Giveaway: Pink Chalk Fabrics

disclosure: this is a sponsored giveaway by Pink Chalk Fabrics

I'd like to introduce you to Pink Chalk Fabrics!


Kathy Mack is the creative force behind Pink Chalk Fabrics & Pink Chalk Studio.
I asked Kathy some questions so you could learn a bit more about Pink Chalk!


How did you get into sewing and quilting?
Sewing has been a passion since my grandmother first taught me how to use a needle and thread as a little girl. I took a very long break during my career days but re-connected with my sewing machine after the birth of my second daughter. I left my job, did a lot of volunteer work, stayed home full time to raise my kids and eventually discovered the online world of craft blogs. March 10th will be Pink Chalk Studio's 5 year blog anniversary!


Water Bottle Carrier Tutorial by Pink Chalk

How did it all happen?
In an attempt to create a lifestyle where I could continue being at home when my kids got off the bus and make money I've thrown a lot of spaghetti at the wall. I now have a line of sewing patterns (Pink Chalk Studio) and an online fabric shop (Pink Chalk Fabrics) that outgrew my house and is now a full-time business with 6 employees. Those were the noodles that stuck. Way more fell to the floor! I always encourage crafters to continue the journey even when things fail. It's all part of the process and you'll be surprised where it will lead you.

What's new at Pink Chalk?
Pink Chalk Fabrics recently hosted its first onsite charity sewing event at the shop. In 2011, my team and I are working to creatively integrate Pink Chalk Fabrics into the community while still focusing on our primary business of online fabric and pattern sales.



Some of the many colors of Kona Solids available at Pink Chalk



Tell us what makes Pink Chalk special!
Pink Chalk Fabrics specializes in fabrics and patterns for modern sewists. In addition to the popular designers we carry a wide selection of Japanese Import fabrics and Solids. Shoppers will find over 135 Kona Cotton colors, all 100 Free Spirit Solids, the full collection of Amy Butler Solids, and many more basics including Grunge by Basic Grey, Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons, Organic Solids, Crossweave Wovens, and Flannel Solids. Our sewing patterns include quilts, handbags and clothing with over 100 independent designers represented. 195 pattern titles are available as instant downloads. I'm especially proud to support so many first time pattern designers.


One of the first time pattern designers that Kathy decided to believe in is me! Kathy has my patterns in her shop and I really appreciate her support. One of the best things about Pink Chalk is that all patterns ship for free in the US!

Pink Chalk has an amazing fabric selection. Here are a few of the things I'm loving at the moment.
