Pendleton Wool Fabric Remnant Give Away!!
Today, I also decided (again, a little late) to join in on the Give Away Day Fun at Sew Mama Sew's blog. Be sure to click the link and see the HUGE amount of chances to win free times that are either hand made, or supplies.
I was trying to think of something to give away, when it came to me, as obvious as the nose on my face. Living in Pendleton, Oregon, why not give away some of the famous wool fabric that is made right here in town? The local mill occasionally has some amazing deals on remnants that they sell in their gift shop. It's also has an incredible free tour that you can take if you go there, and it sells stacks and stacks of blankets at great deals, including seconds, which have the tiniest defects in them that you or I can no possibly discern. The quality that comes out of this place is second to none. It's also one of the few remaining textile mills left in the United States.
I had this remnant in my stash, and decided this is a great opportunity to share a piece of Pendleton with a lucky reader. It's 12 inches wide by 60 inches long. I'll leave the tape on it that came from the mill to prevent fraying. I'll ship it anywhere in the United States. Since it's woven, it has a reverse design on the back (yes, up top that's pictures of both sides). Here's a picture of the whole cut.
