A Lovely New Sponsor (& Free Sample!!)

I don't know about you, but I think one of the great treats nowadays is receiving and opening a package of goodies you've bought online - in fact, one of the very lovely things about being a crafter, artist or designer/maker is needing to buy in some gorgeous supplies sometimes.  Because some craft supplies are quite specialised, or we're looking for something different for the latest project, the best way to buy them is often over the internet.

how cute are these bunny charms?

Enter Wholeport -  a website which aims to have "all the supplies for your beautiful handmade life".  I quite like that idea!

Wholeport is based on the other side of the world to me, in China.  But the world's a small place these days, when you can click a button, send an email and buy online.  I know the readers of this blog are spread all over the world so it's always great to find suppliers who ship worldwide too.

dotty denim - expect to see me making something from this very soon

There are a couple of things you might want to know about Wholeport:

  • they have a free sample service.  How cool is that?  All you do is choose your free sample from this page and it gets sent to you.  Only one free sample per person, which of course is very fair indeed as there are no costs to you at all.  They just ask that you follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook.  Easy peasy.  It's a bit like Christmas come early!

  • they will be running a giveaway on this blog soon. Watch this blog for more info about the giveaway soon - the details are just being ironed out now...

  • they are my newest sponsor and will be supplying some lovely things for my makes.  I've fallen in love with a lot of their fabrics, so I'm hoping to be able to show you some makes quite soon!

I love this print on cotton canvas

Go on - check them out.  As well as fabrics, you'll find beads, baking, polymer clay... and more. I think there's probably something for everyone.

I just had a peek at Wholeport and they have an amazing range. I only looked at the fabric but I'll be saving their website for payday!
