Great new sponsor……and another GIVEAWAY!!

!!!!!!!!!!GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!
I have the sweetest little treasure to show you today.
Especially for you ribbon and fabric lovers.
Have you heard of the Ribbon Retreat +Fabric?  No?  Oooh, get ready for a treasure trove of great stuff.  Not only are they a site full of every piece of ribbon you could ever think of and/or need…….they have recently added to their stash, and carry beautiful designer fabrics.  …And are adding more all of the time.
First, let me just give you a peek into their ribbon, etc. section found here.  I could never show it all to you……but here is just a sampling.  You will never need to go anywhere else for ribbon.  Ever.
They have gobs and gobs of grosgrain
And polka dots, prints, and stripes………
And also moonstitch, double ruffle, and ric-rac.  Adorable!

They even have M2MG Ribbon mixes found here.  M2MG means Made 2 Match Gymboree… know, the little kid clothing store.  That store has so many clothing themes with specific colors, and The Ribbon Retreat has pre-determined ribbon groups to match the clothing lines in their store.  If you want to make your own mix, they have an M2MG Color Guide found here.
See?  You’ll never need another location for your ribbon.
But they also have barrette’s, tulle, lace, headbands, and a variety of other tools and supplies……all found here.

Now, onto the fabric.  Just look at some of their beautiful fabric collections found here.  I love that they’ve added fabric…..a person can never have too much of this stuff.  Ha!

And don’t worry, there is even a nice collection of sewing tools and notions 
……all found here.  
A true one-stop place.  I love that.

 That’s not all.  
Be sure to check in with The Ribbon Retreat +Fabric often, as they are always hosting sales and specials.  And they have weekly facebook giveaways… join in on the fun.  And another great way to be notified of specials and such, is to create an account and add yourself to their mailing list.
You don’t want to miss out.
The Ribbon Retreat +Fabric also has a great blog here, where they feature some great projects, using the products from their site.  A great place to gather new ideas.
