Easy Breezy Embrace® Giveaway!


Have you ever sewn with Shannon Fabrics? We’ve partnered with their company the last couple of years for our live-and-in-person Martha Pullen licensing events, and today we’d like to take a moment to sing their praises. (And offer you a chance to win some of their fabric! But more about that in a minute…)

Shannon Fabrics is the nation’s leading importer and distributor of all types of plush fabrics. In fact, they carry the world’s largest selections of comfy Cuddle® fabrics. They also offer Faux Furs, Embrace® Double Gauze 100% Cotton, super soft Silky Satin fabrics, Cuddle Suede, Terry Cloth and more, in solids and pretty prints developed by both independent and in-house designers. The company offers yardage as well as beautiful kits.

Cuddle is one of their most popular collections. Connie Palmer has taught a Cuddle Blanket Workshop that features a pre-cut kit from Shannon Fabrics at some of the recent Original Sewing & Quilt Expo events. Connie shares some great tips about working with plush fabric here!

We also have an adorable Cuddle Blanket project in store for students in our upcoming Heirloom & Beyond: Essentials to Indulgences licensing. We don’t want to give too much away, but it’s made entirely made of Cuddle fabric and it’s just precious!

Another of Shannon Fabrics popular collections is Embrace Double Gauze. This fabric is 100% cotton, has a very soft hand and comes 48/50” wide. Embrace is ideal for baby blankets, swaddle blankets, quilts, apparel and accessories and is offered in prints and coordinating solids. The Embrace collection may be viewed here on the Shannon Fabrics website.

You can find Shannon Fabrics at our events or at many fabric stores and quilt shops. Use the Shannon Fabrics Store Locator to find local shops that carry their fabric near you!

You can also check out the Shannon Fabrics website for lots of fun stuff we think you’ll love: free patterns, tips and tricks, PDF tutorials and video tutorials and the Sewciety blog!

    #Swaddlekit would love to use this kit to sew up some for some babies in the coming days!

  5. Jana Ross

    My daughter says her double gauze blankets are her favorites for swaddling babies. My son and his wife are expecting their first baby (boy) in October. I want to make some of these sweet blankets for my new grandson.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Candace Arel

    Hi Natalie. I have 2 new grand babies, Zechariah and Evelyn. I would love to make them a swaddle blanket with the #SwaddleKit giveaway. You all rock!

  8. Chris Morrow

    Love the color. Living in a more rural area, beautiful fabrics are hard to find.

  9. Donna

    These fabrics are beautiful and I’ve wanted to try double gauze! Perfect for babies in our warm climate!

  10. Pam Schneider

    #SwaddleKit Great fabric! Makes a great receiving blanket. And such pretty colors!

  11. Sue Cascino

    The swaddles are so cute and I’ve been wanting to try the double gauze. I’ll have to go to your site to see more. Thanks for this chance to win.

  12. Jodygagno

    Have not heard of this fabric nor seen it in stores. You’ve peaked my interest. I’ll be looking for it. It would be wonderful if my first experience and exposure to your fabric would be through the give away. I used to Be a regular at the MP live events but none since she sold out. The one I was to go too i had to cancel because I fell and broke my femur. I’ll have to look in the kits to see if they used this fabric during this event. Im sure I would have been exposed and used the fabric if I still went to her events. Thanks for the information. Jody gagnon

  13. Sandra McGowen

    Love this fabric!! Four babies due in October and November–not me, four different friends.

  14. Leslie Colburn

  15. Lani Fisk

    #Swaddlekit What an awesome giveaway! These are loved by new mamas and babies. We make them for our ladies at church, would love to win!

  16. Bonita Harms

    I would love to be able try Shannon Fabric but have never seen it to purchase. Always need quick baby gifts and this kit looks like it would fit the “quick” gift. #SwaddleKit

  17. Sande Krikke

    I would love to win this fabric giveaway. I see all the new mom’s with these blankets. My Grandkids call them their lovies. #swaddllekit

  18. Charlotte Trayer

    #SwaddleKit Although my grands are no longer babies (ages 8-17), I’d love to have some of this double gauze–my smocking guild makes items for Wee Care and given to the local hospital, and soft fabric for little wraps would be lovely. Thank you!

  19. Grammie

    Very generous offer – love this fabric! The colours are perfect for any wee babe. #swaddlekit

  20. Carole

    What a gift! If I win, I will make the three and donate them to the neonatal unit at our local hospital.

  21. Carol

    Would be so nice to win the Swaddle Kit. Heard so much about the double gauze and have not yet seen it. A wonderful item to give to babies who arrived in this world with nothing to go home in.

  22. Barbara

    #swaddleKit — I’ve never used double gauze, but some of the ladies on the MP forums board have been raving about it! The three fabrics that will be included in the winning kit are sweet, but I must say the Penguins Cuddles on the website are adorable!! And I love the Night Owls Cuddles! I had no idea the double gauze came in so many wonderful designs! Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

  23. Karen Hogue

    I have friends and family expecting little boys this fall and a #SwaddleKit blanket would be a perfect gift!

  24. Chris Nagle

    #SwaddleKit – Never heard of these fabrics before so I am heading right the website to learn more!

  25. Candice

    I love these fabric prints and colors! This swaddle kit would be perfect for our first baby! #SwaddleKit

  26. Shirley Schooley

    I love cuddle cloth. Have actually just recently discovered it. It seems “made for baby” but I think I would also love a small blanket to wrap up in while watching TV, etc. We never get too “adult” to quit loving being surrounded by lush and comfortable fabrics. I have a small piece now in my stash which will become a baby blanket.

  27. Gerri S

    #Swaddlekit – great introduction for me to double gauze! New grandbaby on the way. Would love to win t his!

  28. Shirley Schooley

    It was actually double gauze fabric I was talking about. I must have had a long day. But, I has used cuddle cloth in the past and love it also.

  29. Diana

    Thank you so much for sponsoring this giveaway. I am so thrilled to be one of the winners. I have two grandbabies who loved to be swaddled. I am looking forward to working with this fabric for the first time. Many blessings to you and your family’s. Diana Buehler
