Happy Birthday, Shabby Fabrics!


September 5th is the 9th birthday of Shabby Fabrics!

We are excited to be celebrating nine wonderful years made possible by customers like YOU! Watch the video below to see what Jennifer has to say about the past nine years.


Without you, there would be no Shabby Fabrics. So for our birthday, we want to give back to you. We're launching our brand-new Birthday Club! It's free to join when you create your account. If you already have an account, you can always join the Birthday Club at any time. Just sign into your account and enter your birthday. On your special day, you will be emailed a 20% off everything coupon. The coupon is good for one month after the date it was issued. Join today so we can celebrate YOUR special day too!


We're celebrating our birthday with a bang this year! Starting today and continuing through next week, we have fun games and giveaways planned on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. We will be doing a giveaway right here on the blog too so that everyone has a chance to win!

Our birthday party is on Tuesday, September 9th. Starting at 6pm PST, the ladies of Shabby Fabrics are going to sew, eat and have a good time! We'll be posting pictures LIVE on Instagram and Twitter throughout the evening. There will be chances for you to win if you're following along, so be sure to invite your friends to the party too!


Here's how to INVITE YOUR FRIENDS: On Friday, September 5th, we will post this picture on Instagram and Twitter.


Instagram: Comment on the picture and tag a friend. You can tag as many people as you want but only one friend per comment, please. At the start of the party (6 pm PST), we will randomly select one comment. Both the person who left the comment and the tagged friend will each win a Sparkle Fat Quarter Set! You don't have to be following the party in order to invite friends and win because we know this will be late at night for many of our customers.

Twitter: Retweet the picture and tag a friend for a chance to win. One retweet will be selected at the start of the party and both people will win a Sparkle Fat Quarter Set!


For a little fun, we're going to play "Pin the Tail on the Donkey." Okay, so it's not a tail or a donkey, but you can still PIN TO WIN! Visit any of our Pinterest boards and re-pin a product from our website. Copy and paste the web address of your Pinterest board (where you pinned the product) into the white Rafflecopter box below. One entry will be randomly selected on Wednesday, September 10th and announced the following day in our Birthday Party Recap. For some birthday party inspiration, check out our new "Chic and Shabby Birthday Party" board.


We have a few games of skill planned for those who are following along during the party. On Instagram, we'll show you little snippets of fabric, one at a time. The first person to correctly GUESS THE FABRIC COLLECTION wins!

On Twitter, we'll tweet little tidbits about one of our favorite fabric designers. The first person to reply and correctly GUESS THE DESIGNER wins! The pictures and tweets will be posted between 6-9 pm PST during our birthday party. We can't show you the prizes for these games or you might know the answer!


What's a party without cake? Visit us on Facebook and GUESS HOW MANY FAT QUARTERS were used to make our birthday cake! The picture will be posted on Friday, September 5th.


The person who guesses correctly will win a piece of cake! (Not the whole cake, but we'll send you a lovely Fat Quarter set!) If no one guesses correctly, we will pick the answer that is closest to the correct number. If multiple people guess correctly, we will randomly select one winner from the correct answers. The winner will be selected on Wednesday, September 10th and announced on Thursday, September 11th.

After the party ends, come back here on Thursday, September 11th for one last hurrah! We'll recap the party, announce the Pinterest and Facebook winners and give you a chance to win the biggest prize of the party!

So, are you ready for the party of the year? We hope you'll join us on Instagram and Twitter during the party! In the meantime you can invite your friends, visit us on Pinterest and take a guess on Facebook.

Thank you for nine wonderful years!

  20. Thanks for the video of how your business started. What a great story. Wishing you all a great celebration. I celebrated by ordering some of the new Autumn Lily FQ groupings and yardage. I said I wasn't going to buy any more fabric for awhile, but hey, it's your birthday and I wanted to celebrate with you. Plus with the free shipping and loyalty points I couldn't resist. Now I can hardly wait until my birthday. I'll start making a list. Thanks all around for your great service.
