BEAUTIFUL MERINO WOOL BLEND FELT BY BENZIE


Renae, owner of Benzie Bazaar on Etsy, is our newest giveaway sponsor and she has an awesome giveaway for us.  Benzie Blend Felt is the most versatile and beautiful fabric to create and craft with and includes small cuts to cuts by the yard.  Her felt is a Merino wool blend and once you use it, you'll be hooked.  It's the only wool blend felt I use.  It washes well and it's easy to work with and handle.  And with 80 beautiful hues, you have lots to choose from.


And Renae is giving away 30 6x9" sheets of Benzie Blend Felt.  It's a great introduction to her felt and you get to choose the colors you like!  Her felt is a natural, eco-friendly blend of 35% wool/65% rayon to 20% wool/80% rayon and is approximately 1mm thick. Unlike its synthetic craft store counterparts, this felt is resistant to pilling and pulling, is beautiful to look at and equally wonderful to work with. Manufactured in the USA with wool from Australian sheep, this heirloom quality felt cuts, sews and crafts like a dream.



And if you are tired of cutting out circles for your felt work, you have to try some of her pre-cut Felt-Fetti.  It comes in 5 different sizes. 

So here's what you have to do to enter this wonderful giveaway.

MANDATORY: 

Visit her shop at Etsy.  Come back here and leave a comment telling us which collection you like most. 

EXTRA ENTIRES:

We'd love to have you sign up to stitch with us at our Yahoo Group but it will not be counted as an entry.  Come join us!  We're having a lot of fun creating quilts, totes, walker bags, and more and bringing smiles to those who receive them.  Giveaway ends March 25th.  Winner will be announced March 26th.
