What’s In YOUR Box? Island Batik Fabrics Arrive

Island Batik Fabrics Arrive

If you haven’t figured out yet, I’m a brand new ambassador for  Island Batik Fabrics and I am still pinching myself for the privilege and opportunity to promote and represent this fine line of fabrics.

Almost as good as Christmas when your delivery man brings you fabric!

Have to admit I was getting over excited as I saw my fellow ambassadors posting photos of the opening of their boxes…..and I was still waiting on mine…oh the joys of shipping zones…

Here’s a sampling of the tantalizing photos popping up all over the internet this week.

Now can you see why I was drooling! I know you are going to want to see all the Ambassadors’ big reveals – just use the hashtag Island Batik Ambassadors on your social media and check often with Island Batik’s Blog to keep up with us.

Patience is a virtue

After days of eager anticipation, THE box from Island Batik arrives and notifications are sent across social media!

Needless to say, once Mr. FedEx rang my door bell I couldn’t wait to shout to the roof tops “De Box! De Box!”

Ah, but “the rest of the story” is that Mr. FedEX (who was a tad taken aback when asked to pose for a photo) had arrived precisely as I was walking out the door to head to church….. THE BOX had to wait….

If you want a good laugh visit my Facebook page to see a replay of my Facebook Live recording my dilemma concerning “opening THE box”…..okay, so I apologize in advance – I’m brand new to FB live…

 

What’s in My Box You Ask?

The wait is over!  I hope you enjoy my big reveal – I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the fabric choices made for me! I look so forward to “being creative” each month as the Island Batik Ambassadors work hard to bring you inspiration within various themes and challenges on ideas for incorporating these beautiful fabrics into YOUR quilts!

 

As special thank you to Katie and Elizabeth, Marketing & Designer Relations at Island Batik, to Island Batik for their generosity, and to Superior Threads and Aurifil for the coordinating thread samples! It’s going to be a great 2017!

    1. The poor guy! He looked so stunned when I said I had to have a photo of him with the box! He’s not my regular delivery person and I’m sure he’s going to request NOT to have my route (grin). It’s all good. Love having fun and having these fantastic fabrics to play with is what I call major fun!

  1. Sounds like a very exciting job! Love your video, you have such a people personality. 😃 All those wonderful fabrics and threads, that’s a little slice of heaven!

    Best of luck to you!
