Giveaway and a New Sponsor, Meet ChristaQuilts!

Today I would like to introduce you to one of my new sponsors. Meet Christa of ChristaQuilts. I asked Christa to share with us a little about her shop.

Meet Christa!

I started selling fabric online about 9 years ago when a former quilting student of mine suggested I sell some of my leftover fabrics on eBay. Before then, I taught quilting classes and sold quilts on commission. About 6 years ago, my husband Jason suggested we make it our full-time business and we’ve never looked back! He keeps the website running smoothly (his passion) and I get to play with all the fabric and design interesting quilt patterns and kits (my passion).


Some of the more popular designers we carry are Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett, Paula Nadelstern, Laurel Burch, Loralie Harris and Dr. Seuss. We also carry an impressive selection of Moda jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs, plus tons of basics and coordinates. We just added a bunch of Kona cotton solids to the mix and are on the lookout for more modern fabrics and designers.


We also offer individual precut fat quarters on nearly every fabric we carry and they’ve been one of our most popular items.

Probably our biggest selling point is that we offer FREE US shipping with no minimum purchase required. We ship orders within 24 hours of purchase and can usually accommodate same day requests. We ship internationally, too for a flat $10 rate, anywhere across the world.

Our real-time inventory also guarantees that what you order is what you get – no worries about out of stock items or not getting all of what you ordered. You can see how much of an item we have in stock before you order it.

Pile O' Fabric Discount!

For Pile O' Fabric blog readers we’d like to offer a special group discount. If you enter code G12PLFB at checkout you will save 5% on your first order. But what makes it even better is that your will automatically get 5% off all future orders, too, so it’s like a permanent coupon!

On top of that, all orders that are over $25 qualify for a little freebie – a selection of fabric, patterns, notions or gifts that I call “Christa’s Candy” – guilt free quilt treats!

All of our customers receive an automatic repeat buyer discount, too, sort of like an automatic rewards system – the more you buy, the more you save. This is in addition to the special group discount.

Thank you Christa for sharing with us. Christa has so many different wonderful deals and specials some she didn't even mention too such as her Daily Deals, Weekly Specials, and Fat Free Dozen Fat Quarters. You can learn all about each special here.
