Vicki and Sloan will share their design expertise and experiences while decorating both the home and the gardens of this custom built 4600 square foot house with their national viewership via the FYH Show. In addition to creating the year around style and look of the home they will also decorate the home for the holidays in preparation for open house touring this holiday season.
“As a cancer survivor, it is a true honor to be involved with this project” says Vicki Payne. “Sloan and I look forward to sharing our ideas and concepts with our regular TV viewers as well as the thousands of attendees that will be touring the home. We will be relying on our national sponsors as well as dozens of volunteers to create a space that radiates the true spirit of the season and this important cause.”
The building of this 4,600-square-foot English style cottage home, designed and constructed by E.S. Johnson Builders, began in January of this year. The home’s construction is expected to be completed in October, will open to the public Thanksgiving weekend 2008, and will remain open for four weekends during the holiday season. Special events, workshops, and tours will take place with all proceeds benefiting the local affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Now you are probably wondering what this wonderful giveaway entails! Well here you go! We want to see projects YOU have made out of our fabric that does not consist of your normal sewing project. Though we love seeing quilts, handbags and clothes you have made, we want your imagination to really be creative with this. An example of this would be using Modge Podge to create something with fabric. Jane Sassaman is a great example of this.
You are probably wondering what you are winning right? Well the inspiration for this giveaway was a piece of Fabricware. The grand prize winner (one who receives the most votes) will win a large Fabricware serving tray from our Westminster Fibers Lifestyle Products division. We will also have six additional winners that will receive selections of fabric similiar to this. We will be accepting submissions until 5pm on February 4th. You are allowed to submit one item that includes a picture, brief description and please include your name and address so if you do win, we will have your information. If you want to remain anonymous on the website, please state in the e-mail as well. E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, we would really like our readers to become followers of the FreeSpirit blog so we can see what you are doing through your blog as well!
Good luck to everyone with the giveaway!
