celebrating 10 years with a giveaway from birch fabrics

Today we’re continuing our anniversary week celebration with a special gift for one reader from our friends at Birch Fabrics! Read all the way to the bottom of this post to find out how you can enter.

Birch Fabric Giveaway

I’ve known Cynthia Mann from Birch Fabrics for quite a few years now. We met at Quilt Market, and I remember walking by her booth, seeing the adorable clothes she had sewn for her display using our patterns, and stopping in my tracks because they were so cute. We’ve stayed in touch ever since, and it’s been a lot of fun to see her business grow. Did you know that she also owns Fabricworm, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary later this year? That means Birch is almost 10 years old, too. Time has gone so quickly.

Cynthia (and Birch) have developed lots of great fabric collections, including those adorable Charlie Harper collections! I chose one of her Birch Basics for the green Girl on the Go Dress and the quality of the fabric is just wonderful–in addition to being organic. It’s an interlock that’s 95% cotton/5% elastene, and Cynthia told me it’s a little bit heavier than some knits, about 220 gsm. It’s substantial enough to be perfect for the Girl on the Go Dress + Top. It’s super combed and incredibly soft to the hand. A pleasure to sew and a pleasure to wear!

To celebrate our 10-year anniversary, Birch is offering one winner two 3-yard cuttings from your choice of their new Summer of ’62 knit collection or from their Birch Basics Knits collection.

The Summer of ’62 knit collection from Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics is inspired by California surf culture of the sixties. This collection takes us back to the beach in classic retro style.

The Birch Basics Knit collection features dots, more dots, and a sparkling “wink” print. You’ll love what you can do with the luscious knits.

To enter to win two three-yard cuts of the fabric of your choice from either of these collections, leave a comment telling us whether you’re a more retro summer of ’62 girl or a more classic, basics gal. (And if you’re a guy? Just tell us that. We don’t see many of your type around here, but we’re glad you’re here and you’re more than welcome to enter too!) One entry per person, please. We will close comments on this post and choose the winner (with the assistance of random.org) on Wednesday, March 21 at 9:00 AM ET. The winner will be notified by email.

  242. Retro, retro, retro….all the way!! Always on the lookout for some fun, printed knits…. (side note: loving the humor in your “important / disclosures” at the end of the post)

  243. Peggy

    Guess I am just a good old basic girl. Thanks for the opportunity.

  244. Susan Terrill

    I would definitely love the knit fabric from the 1962 period. I already own that fabric in the woven
    substrate because I loved it so much and because I think organic cotton is so important.
    I graduated from high school in 1962 so I have fond memories from this time.

  245. Emily

    Love the colors of summer of 62!

  246. Kathy Plagens

    My two little granddaughters would love those retro prints. So do I.

  251. Patricia

    I’m a basic girl and with 3 granddaughters under the age of six, pink dots are the thing!!

  252. Marie Hawley

    I really love both! I love the poppies, and the birds from the summer of ‘62 collection. But because I have two little boys to sew for, I tend to go the classics route.

  253. Jaime Lee

    Beautiful collection! I love basics (with a dash of fun thrown in)!

  254. Susan

    I love the colours of those basics!

  269. Beth Baker

    I’m probably more of a basic gal, but I could see myself using the retro for fun summer dresses and tanks for my daughter. On a side note, I did not know she owned fabricworm. I met someone from there years ago who was running a booth at a quilt show in Cincinnati. I never made the connection. Love the website and fabric. ❤️

  270. Karen

    RETRO! I love everything retro and as a native to California living along the Pacific Ocean and amongst the giant Redwoods I can really appreciate the beauty of Birch’s 62 fabric line (knit is my favorite ❤️).

  271. Sara Kaetzer

    Now I’m generally a retro kind of girl, but the basics are just too good!

  272. Jill

    It is so hard to choose! I love the summer retro prints they are so fun for little ones outfits but the basics are needed for adding to the finished product to make it pop!

  273. Ragon

    Oh, I love those retro flower prints! Especially that pretty cornflower blue one! That’s what I would sew with! (I love Birch fabrics–they got me over my fear of knits!)

  274. Susan B

    I’m more of a classic, basics gal. Love your fabrics. Especially the knits for kids clothes.

  275. Trent

    The guy here checking in. Love making your patterns for my son and daughter.

    Always get alot of positive comments on their clothes and people are shocked when they find out “daddy made it”.

    I found your site when trying to find quality winter jackets for my children.

    I’m going with the Summer of 62’ collection as it can get so dreary here in the Pacific Northwest.


  276. Karyn Lawson

    Wow definitely a retro vibe in our house! Winning this would be perfect as I have never sewn this type of fabric before and would be a great opportunity to do so and try out a new pattern. Fingers crossed for my daughter who who will get the new outfit!

  310. Betsy

    Love the Charlie Harper collection,

  311. Brittany Galperin

    Definitely a classics kind of mom – although my daughter would probably get more excited about the prints than I would and now is old enough to say yay or nay to what my sewing projects might look like for her – compromise! 🙂

  312. Dea C.

    I am usually a classic/basics gal, but I’m loving the retro fabric!

  326. HIlary McCluskey

    They are all great fabrics and I’d go with either, but the summer 62 fabrics definitely have more of a wow factor!

  327. Helen O’Driscoll

    That’s a tough one! I love both! So I would combine the two – I’m thinking of an Infinity Scarf with those gorgeous birds on one side and the winky stars on the other – perfection!

  328. LU

    Summer of ’62 all the way!

    Too hard to make a decision but my sons would love the Surf Rally knit !!!

    Love the basics, but you need a print to WOW people, so I’m going with Summer of ’62!

  367. Rina Hallock

    Investors them all! If I must choose, I’d pick the basics because I saw for my granddaughters, and the pink and lavender ones would look spectacular; but then, that poppy print would be fabulous as well!

    1. Rina Hallock

      Bummer! My spell check hates me! It changed “I love them all” to “Investors them all.”

    I would have to pick the basics, but just one favorite print, those glasses would be my pick.

  410. Sharon Schneeberger

    I prefer the more classic/basics.

    Classic girl but move retro!!! Think the winks would be up there in my choices too!!

  488. Lara

    Ooo, this is a tough choice! I love me some polka dots, but the poppies are calling my name! I’ll have to go with the Retro!

  489. Lisa Anne

    I love the retro, especially those poppies, but at the end of the day I end up buying more classic styles. Thank You!

  490. Classic, basic. I’d go with the adorable Wink, pond and pink! And pop dots, and here I cannot even decide on which one 🙂

  491. cheryl olliff

    Definitely the basics for me.

    I’m a classic gal. I like basic lines that are clean and classic

  499. Melissa

    Retro all the way. OMG that car fabric is needed for my nephew.

  500. Catherine

    I’m a retro gal!

  501. Jo Campbell

    Both collections are gorgeous, but I’d go retro.

  502. Sue

    I would say I’m a classics gal but I also love the CaliPop prints. I love the idea of organic cotton knits too.

  503. Ratna

    Retro – these are gorgeous and fun prints.

  504. Michelle Mikell

    Although I love both collections, I am more of a basics kind of girl. Basics can take me so many places.

  505. Simone

    The basics would be great for comfy clothing for my young kids

  506. I am from California and live the summer of ’62.

  507. I love those frames! But I also love the little dots, so I guess I’m both a retro and a classics gal.

  508. Vicki Snider

    Definitely summer of ’62!

  509. Judy Cinerari

    I am definitely a retro girl – those sunglasses and the combi vans. Gorgeous!

  520. Valerie

    Basics for me. They are both beautiful.

  521. Lizzie

    All are adorable and I would say I am a classics girl but I love a hint of retro.

  522. Marissa

    Definitely defined as classic and always have been but maybe with a twist now and then. Love Birch basics and that you can count on Birch for quality organic fabric. Makers/sewers need to have options that match their beliefs.

  523. nalani

    SUMMER OF 62 for me!

  524. Oh… the shades (Sunmer of ‘62) would make some adorable outfits for my grandchildren…. all little ones with a love of the beach and ocean. I have a bit of the wink fabric I already purchased so I would trim out the sleeves or neckline if their outfits with wink… I love visiting Birch (often making a trip to their store for inspiration) but if I don’t have time to venture out, I order from Fabricworm, their online shopping website. Love, love, love their fabrics.

  525. Natalie Fritsche

    It’s hard to choose, but I think I’d be a retro ’62 girl!

  526. Fani Noulika

    Both collections are great, but I would prefer the Summer of ’62.

  541. Jena Beecher

    I LOVE both! I think I’m likely more of a basics girl!

  542. Heidi

    Summer of 62. Love those flowers on the blue background

  543. Denise Martin

    I would make a Girl On The Go dress for my granddaughter fromthe Birch Basics spotty pattern – ca girl can never have too many spots or stripes!

  544. Victoria

    Most definitely a basics girl – although those birds are dreamy… ahhh….

  545. Carla Jilek

    Me! Me! Me! Pick me! I love making beautiful clothing with beautiful fabric!

  546. Melyana

    Definitely basic girl!

  547. Sally P

    I was born in summer of 62! Would love to try out some of this collection with my Oliver + S patterns for my grandies. Thank you for the chance!

  548. Mei

    Definitely a basics, classic kind of girl!

  549. Morgana

    Loving those basics, although several of the Retro range prints are saying hello to me!

  550. Gabriella

    I’m in love with both collections as they each inspire me to make different silhouettes. Birch materials are beautiful I work at spotlight and always encourage customers to have a feel and 90% of the time they find a need with a print that suits them!

  551. Christine N

    I’m more of a basics gal, but I love the seagulls and poppies in Summer of 62 collection! Happy anniversary!

  552. Carrie Simpson

    Love those retro prints but I’m pretty much a basics gal!

  553. Stacey

    I am loving the Cali Pop in Nightfall! Summer of ‘62 for sure!

  554. Cheryl

    Oh my goodness! It just so happens that right now I’m wearing my Metro T made with Birch’s Charley Harper Bank Swallow! I wear it all the time. I love both collections mentioned above, but if I had to pick just one today, it would be the Summer of ’62. Gorgeous!

  555. Ruth S

    Birch basics for me, although I might pick those birds from the summer62.

  556. Anna Gerard

    I am a basics girl (that mustard yellow!) but that poppy print is tempting!

  558. Fiona

    Love all the summer of 62 prints!

  559. arlinajsk

    Would love the 62 buses and cars for a boys top like sailboat or the tee. Maybe even try the lunchbox tee for boys!

  560. Caroline

    Basics for me! They’re amazing!

  561. Asheley

    It would be hard to choose. I love classics though.

  562. Susan Robertson

    The nieces each need a summer ‘62 dress! Please pick me.

  563. That is such a hard choice! I love the glasses, pretty much everyone in my family wears them. To the point where the one kid who didn’t need them insisted that I buy plastic glasses from amazon so he could have glasses too! However the classic knits would coordinate with so much. But the woodies with their boards are also so great!

  564. Haleemah Rahman

    Very difficult to choose between the two collections (as usual when I go shopping for fabric). Afer long time browsing, I lean to Retro Sumer ’62, the car print, and the orange flower for me.

  565. Michelle

    It has to be the basic for me! Although those beach umbrellas viewed from above are very cute.

  566. Rebecca Hunter

    I have loved the wink ever since it came out. And I love that the basics will combine with more “retro” prints, too!! So, basics for me, I think.

  567. Dorothy Miller

    So hard to choose, but basics, please. Hoping to make baby nightgowns.

  568. Tricia

    Retro Summer ’62! Those pops of color and the flower and seagull motifs stole my heart. 🙂

  569. Jenn

    Summer of 62!! Love it!

  570. Heck I was around in 1962 – so I would choose the basics.

  571. Agata

    I think this time I would choose classic patterns, but I have to say i adore Summer ‘62 collection as well!!

  572. Sarah Goodrich

    The basics will go great with my capsule wardrobe.

  573. Beth p

    Love the retro prints. Thanks for such a fun giveaway!

  574. Karyn

    Nothing beats a quirky retro print…cute skirts and fun tops…love it!

  575. Gretchen Dewan

    I think I’m more of a basics person, though the retro prints actually are really cute!!

  576. I really love them both (and Birch in general), but I think I am a Summer of ’62 gal right now.

  577. Annette Poole

    I’m definitely thinking retro would be my choice-beautiful choices!

  578. Rene Crumley

    retro would be for me

  579. Esther

    The basics are begging to be sewn up into cute dresses!

  588. Nique

    Summer of ’62, please.
    Thanks for the opportunity

  589. Susan

    Some of the ’63 stuff is great, but I’d go for the classics

  590. Seren Belle

    I’m so retro, so Summer ‘62 works for me!

  591. Amanda Correa

    I would sew the Girl on the Go dress for my daughter in the Basics knit……black, gray, or aqua!

  592. Kirsten

    I’m normally a basics girl, but I love the 62 summer birds and poppies

  593. Melissa

    If I hadn’t seen the pictures I’d say classic but those retro prints would be too cute to pass up!

  594. Elise O'Connor

    Retro for sure!!!

  595. Gina Snyder

  607. Love those retro prints for some sewing for myself (Chai Tee Shirt, perhaps?!).

  608. Tracey Roberts

    Retro, it’s the only way to go!

  609. I’m more of a basics gal.

  610. Jennifer

  670. Normally I’m a basics gal but those poppies have me swooning!
