Golden Ticket Sale

This summer, we're celebrating Pink Castle's fourth Golden Ticket sale so this year, we're going to give away five awesome grand prizes! If you don't know what our Golden Ticket sale is, the gist is that for ever $50 you spend in store or online, you'll get a little yellow ticket that includes some sort of prize. You may be one of our lucky grand prize winners or you'll get a coupon code for you to use on an order. Every single ticket includes a prize and there are only 2000 tickets to give away! Here's a look at our grand prizes (with some contest details below):

Janome
Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900QCP ($4000 value)! 

The Memory Craft 8900 is one of Janome's best machines on the market. With 270 stitches (sewing up to 1000 stitches per minute), a super high presser foot lift (making your quilting that much easier), 11 one-step button holes, 11" of throat space, AND an extension table included, the 8900 is really anyone's dream machine. Its speed is great for piecing, the throat space and table are great for those of us who do our own quilting, and tons of adorable decorative stitches are great for details on apparel. Unfortunately, as per Janome policies, we cannot ship this machine internationally. If you live outside the US and receive the Golden Ticket for this machine, you will instead receive a Pink Castle gift card for $1500. While it's not a free machine, you could buy almost a whole new stash with that!

Janome
 
Janome DC2015 sewing machine ($700 value)! 

The DC2015 performs 60 stitches, including 6 one-step buttonholes, and all the conveniences of a high-end machine like easy reverse buttons, auto lock stitch, and speed control slider all in a small, lightweight, and adorable machine. Portable enough to take to sewing retreats and dependable enough for every day use, the DC2015 is a great and versatile machine! I personally brought one of these cuties home just a couple weeks ago and I love it. Unfortunately, as per Janome policies, we cannot ship this machine internationally. If you live outside the US and receive the Golden Ticket for this machine, you will instead receive a Pink Castle gift card for $400. Still not such a bad deal! $400 buys an awful lot of fabric :)

Glamp Stitchalot
Ticket to Glamp Stitchalot 2016 ($550 value)! 

Taking place June 2-5, 2016 in Ann Arbor, MI, we'll be hosting the second Glamp Stitchalot. If you're the recipient of this Golden Ticket, you're getting in for free! Hang out with us and learn how to make a mystery row quilt designed by our teachers Ayumi Mills, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Carolyn Friedlander, Elizabeth Hartman, Monica Solorio-Snow, and Penny Layman. If this is you, email me at Hayley@PinkCastleFabrics.com and we'll get you set up! If you can't attend the event, the ticket is transferrable so you're welcome to pass it along to someone who might like to go! Otherwise, we can provide a $350 Pink Castle gift certificate instead.

SSC
1 year of Stash Stack Club fat quarter bundles ($360 value)! 

For the past 12 months, we've been setting aside a Full Stack, Fat Quarter bundle of each month of our Stash Stack Club. If you have the lucky Golden Ticket, you'll receive ALL of those bundles! That's 144 fat quarters in a whole rainbow of blenders to add to your stash. If you want more info about our Stash Stack Club and how it works, you can check that out over here.

Quilt Now Magazine
1 year of Quilt Now ($155 value)! 

Like Stash Stack, we've been setting aside copies of the first year of Quilt Now issues. If you're the winner of this prize, you'll get the first 12 issues of Quilt Now to be published! Each issue of Quilt Now includes at least 20 projects and some sort of freebie gift so if you're the Quilt Now prize winner, you've got 240 projects and 12 goodies to play with!

PCF Golden Ticket

In addition to all those amazing grand prizes, FIVE tickets will include coupon codes for $100 off a Pink Castle order, TEN will have $50 off coupon codes, TWENTY will have $25 off codes, and FIFTY will have $10 codes! Every other ticket will include $5 off a Pink Castle order. That's like the value of half a yard of quilting for free!

Now here are the logistics of this whole deal:

  1. Starting today, July 1, with every order you place at Pink Castle at $50 or more, you will receive a Golden Ticket tucked into your order. Tickets will not be included in any orders placed before 12:00a.m. on July 1. 
  2. You'll earn an additional Golden Ticket for every $50 you spend beyond that! The total must be an increment of $50 before any discounts, shipping, tax, all that and orders cannot be combined to meet the minimum. For example, if you spend $130 on an order, you'll get two tickets. If you place two $25 orders, you get no tickets. 
  3. Clubs, Glamp ticket payments, presale orders, and gift certificates do not count for this deal. Orders must be placed on our site or in person in the store.
  4. You can use your ticket coupon code on orders placed after August 15, 2015 but before September 30, 2015. After September 30, the discount codes will expire. 
  5. To find out the amount of your gift certificate, input the coupon code on the Golden Ticket at checkout on your next order. Don't forget, every ticket is a winner! Your prize could be $5-$100 off your next order!

We are only giving away 2000 Golden Tickets. Once they're gone, that's it! If you have any additional questions, feel free to leave a comment or send us an email at admin@pinkcastlefabrics.com! Happy shopping!

Botanics Fabric by Carolyn Friedlander - Giveaway (CLOSED)

Posted by Brenda Ratliff on Nov 5, 2013 11:09:00 AM
  
Hello everyone!
 
I'm back from another whirlwind Quilt Market!  It was a lot of fun, as usual.  Seeing all my quilty friends and all the beautiful fabrics and projects is a little bit surreal.  But, now I'm back and it's back to business!  Instead of doing one big Quilt Market roundup this time I'm going to tell you more about the lines of fabric closer to when they are ready to ship. Now, it's time to talk about Carolyn Friedlander fabric! 
 
This month, one of my favorite lines from market is going to ship!   Botanics from Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman fabrics!   Botanics is Carolyn's follow up to the popular Architextures line.
 
 Botanics Fabrics at Pink Castle Fabrics
 
It has the same line-drawn feel as her last fabric line and again, really amazing color choices.  Carolyn really is a talented artist.  This line has a little bit of gold metallic ink on the Succulent prints to add an extra layer of texture and interest without going overboard.  AND Carolyn has made SIX 108" wide backing fabrics to go along with the line!  These are REALLY awesome!  They are all the crosshatch print that you see in the bottom left of the photo above which means they are very versatile and can be used with a lot of other projects and not just with her line of fabric!  
 
Carolyn is just as awesome as her fabrics!  I'm really excited that she has agreed to come and teach at Camp Stitchalot next November (2014)!!!
 
I was able to pick up some of Botanics early and I was really impressed with the selection of " low volume" prints in this line.  This is great for creating secondary patterns in quilts.  I decided to play around with the values in this line for the quilt I'm making.  It's a traditional courthouse steps quilt using 2" strips that I cut on the Accuquilt.  
 
 Botanics Quilt by Just a Bit Frayed - Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics at Pink Castle Fabrics
 
We now have Botanics for PRESALE at Pink Castle Fabrics!  This line will be shipped at the very end of November 2013.  I am giving away a bundle from Quilt Market this week to one lucky winner!  I have a Full Fat Quarter bundle for you!
 
Carolyn Friedlander Botanics
 
Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win this bundle (open to International as well).  Make sure to follow our blog and sign up for our mailing list! AND make sure to head over to Pink Castle Fabrics and preorder Botanics!!!
UPDATE: CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

I've Got a Golden Ticket! - A One Year of Stash Stack Club Giveaway!

Posted by Brenda Ratliff on Jul 17, 2013 10:00:00 AM
  
Stash Stack Club from Pink Castle fabrics, the best stash building fabric club!
 
 
It seems like it was just yesterday, but we have now completed a full year of our popular Stash Stack Club!   Jeni Baker from In Color Order and I hatched this club based upon her awesome Art of Choosing series on her blog.  She talks about best "stash builder" fabrics and how to use them with your other prints to create amazing color schemes for quilting.  After reading her series, I looked through my own stash and started refolding and arranging it in color order.  I realized that I had a lot of "main prints" and novelty prints but nothing to go with them!  Every time I wanted to start a new project, I had to go out and buy stash builder fabric or coordinating prints to round out my bundle.  Then when I would go online to shop (my local shops really don't have a ton of modern fabrics available) I would have to sift through all the new lines of fabrics (because that's how shops online buy and arrange their shops) to find the stash builders within collections and hope they match.  By then the inspiration might have passed me by!  
 
I rearranged my shop and tagged everything that I consider a " stash builder".  A stash builder is a fabric that has only one color or one color and white.  Then I tagged them by color family and Jason helped me set up a section on the right sidebar of Pink Castle Fabrics so you can easily shop all the stash builders that we have in stock:
 
I love how easy it is to search stash builder fabrics by color at Pink Castle Fabrics!
 
We now have over 400 stash builders in stock!  I keep searching and reordering all your favorites so you can come to my shop and find just the right color to finish your projects!
 
I have saved a fat quarter (18" x 22") of every print from the last year!  Here is what one year in Stash Stack Club gets you. Pretty amazing, huh?
 
Stash Stack Club from Pink Castle fabrics, the best stash building fabric club!
 
Now, I'm going to be giving them all away to one lucky person!  You will win 36 yards of stash builders!  This is an instant stash!  Are you getting excited?  I am.  Oh, yeah!  I should tell you how to win!  All you have to do is get the Grand Prize GOLDEN TICKET!   Starting this Friday, July 19th all orders at Pink Castle Fabrics (in store and online) over $50 will get you a Golden Ticket.   EVERY GOLDEN TICKET IS A WINNER!  You will win a Gift Certificate for Pink Castle Fabrics in one of these amounts: $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or the Grand Prize of 144 Stash Builder fat quarters!  

Giveaway Details: 

1.  Golden Tickets are only good on orders after July 19th 2013 and until supplies last (over 550 prizes available).  We cannot issue Golden Tickets for orders placed before July 19th, 2013.
2.   One Golden Ticket is issued for every $50 spent (before shipping) in one order.  For example, if you order $134 you will get 2 tickets.  If you have two orders of $25 you get no tickets.   Stash Stack Club and/or No Prints Allowed do not count for the Golden Ticket contest.  This is only for orders placed online at http://PinkCastleFabrics.com or at our in store location in Ann Arbor, MI.
3.   To find out the amount of your gift certificate, input the coupon code on the Golden Ticket at checkout on your next order.  Don't forget, every ticket is a winner!  Your prize could be $5-$100 off your next order!  The Grand Prize ticket will say "Grand Prize" and have information on how to claim your prize.
4.   All Golden tickets will expire August 31st, 2013.

 There are at least 3 $100 Gift Certificates and 6 $50 Gift Certificates available as well as the one Grand Prize.  
 
We just started a new year of Stash Stack Club so make sure to sign up!  This year we are taking out Navy for the month of August (navy will be mixed in with Blue) and adding in Low Volume!  Low Volume prints are becoming a necessity of the modern stash and the popularity won't be going away any time soon.
 
Get your orders ready for this weekend!  Good Luck!
