Have you heard of Sassy Packs? They are a fabulous online quilt store that is designed around meeting the needs of the beginner quilter. I met Vicki (virtually) back in July when I posted my (still) unfinished Christmas Sampler quilt to one of the sewing groups I belong to on Facebook. I began following her blog and we have gotten to know each other a little bit. When I launched my new blog, she and her daughter, Jennifer, were one of the first companies that I approached about being a sponsor. The fact that they gear their store and their blog around helping you learn to quilt and sew is what drew me to them.
When I first started quilting all I bought was quilt kits. It made the entire process so much easier for me. I didn’t have to worry about whether or not my fabric selections would look good together, I didn’t have to worry about getting the right amount of fabric and I had clear and well written instructions to follow. SassyPacks has over 20 kits available –and they aren’t just for quilts either! One of my favorite kits they are offering right now is the Urban Cabin – you can get the kit in two different sizes – which is a total bonus if you ask me.
If you are looking for a great Christmas present to make, they also have a kit for a Christmas Mug Rug right now – in case you haven’t noticed in the blogging world recently, mug rugs are ALL the rage right now!
They also have a great selection of fabric by the yard, fabric bundles and pre-cuts, quilt patterns and they even have a sample sale. Vicki and Jennifer test almost every pattern from the kits they sell and they sell those samples!
Now I have an exclusive offer from SassyPacks for all of the Sew BitterSweet Designs readers…FREE SHIPPING ON ALL orders over $20.00. How awesome is that?!? I don’t know about you but half the time shipping is what makes or breaks an online purchase for me. Take a few moments to check out SassyPacks, compare their prices to other shops; their Kona Solids rolls the cheapest I have seen anywhere!

Thank you Vicki and Jennifer! I am sew happy you are here!
I hope everyone will take some time to check out SassyPacks! They have an excellent selection of Kona Solids and carry some of the top names in the industry! Show them some love!
I have that Urban Cabin pattern and didn’t realize the pieces were so big…I guess it’s time to work on that one soon…your is beautiful.
Good luck with your new store.
I am thinking that I am going to grab the Kona solids I need for my little man’s birthday hat and some things to make mug rugs from them! Thank you for the introduction to such a great site! 🙂
Thanks for the tip! Your quilt is beautiful 🙂 Going to check them out.
Oh thanks for the intro to this store and the amazing deal you have arranged… I love the look of that huge Hot Spice Kona bundle…I am not in the States…do you know if the free shipping applies to international orders too??
Oh how cool. With me being a new quilter I’m finding the hardest part for me so far is in the choosing fabrics that go well together. Thank you for the heads up on this shop. I will definitely keep them in mind. I cannot take advantage of the offer right now but will check their shop when I can spend some money so thank you.
I am not familiar with that site but went to check it out. Great idea to make kits for new quilters. I was pretty nervous about picking out fabrics when I first started.
