In today’s edition of Link Love I’m going to introduce you to the fabulous gift giving shop of Jenni 20 Designs. I first was introduced to Jenni last summer via Twitter, she is one of the sweetest girls on my ‘crafty’ user list.  She is super crafty and sells items we all use, in attractive fabrics. Reading her profile bio I almost felt like I was reading my own, at first, minus the poodle (mine is a Heinz 57 special) and my couch is not vintage, just weathered:

“Jenni20 started sewing and crafting in the 80s under the tutelage of her fabulously talented mother. When she’s not dreaming up some new project, Jenni either works tirelessly on adding to her fabric stash, hanging out on her vintage couch with her poodle, reading anything in print…or doing all three simultaneously!”

Take a look around her shop and find some eco-friendly items, some vintage finds and some passport covers that will add a little spice to your travel.

Any lover of fabric is a friend of mine!

Why not include a supply shop? I love this shop and frequent it often. I love fabric, I love the feel of it, the different color ways, the designs. I’ve become a wee bit of a fabric addict/junkie. There are so many different reasons that make each unique and perfect for a certain creation. Many fabrics become part of my beloved stash, waiting for the perfect pattern. Right now I’m at a place where I need to use my stash before I purchase anything new. It almost saddens me because I love receiving new stuff in my mailbox. Often from the Fabricshoppe.

Once upon a time I laughed at my mother and grandmother for their stashes of fabric, and when my mother bought my Nana a mug with the slogan ‘She who dies with the most fabric wins!’

There are some great fabric shops online, but let me tell you what I love about the Fabricshoppe and continue to return: Jody is a fabulous seller with a super big heart, she runs a blog with tips and features ‘Everyday Beautiful’. She also sells a huge variety of fabric for all tastes.  The best part (for myself anyhow) is that she has a great selection of small pieces of fabric – fat quarters and a section of scrap packs called ‘surprise in my mailbox’. Oh, did I forget to mention she has a sale fat quarter each week for only $1? Yup, $1! If you follow her on twitter she often has other great promos and offers for her customers.

Here’s some of my top picks from her shop:

SALE A Surprise In My Mailbox- Scrap pack of designer fabrics (9-15 different fabrics, depending on weight)
