If you are looking for modern fabric, chances are Brenda at Pink Castle Fabrics has it!

Pink Chalk Fabrics is just delightful–did you know that Kathy Mack and her staff iron the fabrics before sending them out? Great shipping and service, and a nice selection of tools and downloadable patterns. As a bonus, her website is really easy to navigate, and she has an extensive collection of solids for sale. Pink Chalk is offering (2) $20 gift certificates. You can find them on Facebook here.
If you are looking for a beautiful fabric bundle, you have probably shopped at Amanda’s shop, Westwood Acres. Amanda has the best Instagram contests (so make sure to follow here at @acraftyfox). Westwood Acres is offering a fat eighth bundle of the winner’s choice (of fabrics that are in stock the first week of October). If it were today, and I won, I would probably pick this one. Or this one. Or maybe this one. She is on Facebook here.
