Mark your calendars! Purl Soho is hosting the launch party for Liberty of London's new Lifestyle collection this Thursday from 6 to 7pm. We hope you'll join us in celebrating Liberty's first line of fabrics specially designed for crafting and patchwork. Made with all the love we expect from Liberty of London, the Lifestyle collection brings its own fresh pop with punchy florals, super cute feedsacks, and wild paisleys. Come get a sneak peak and a jump-start your stash!

The Party

When: Thursday, July 19th from 6 to 7pm

We'll be toasting to the Lifestyle collection with an amazing cocktail mixed up by Heidi Johannsen Stewart, co-owner of the extraordinary tea atelier, Bellocq. Her special summery creation will combine Bellocq's refreshing herbal blend, Le Hammeau, with a light Prosecco. It's the perfect introduction to Bellocq, whose out-of-this-world teas we are now proud to carry at Purl Soho!

Three lucky partygoers will each win a giant fabric bundle that includes all 55 Lifestyle fabrics! In addition, Liberty has generously provided goodies so everyone will have something to walk away with!

And if you can't join us. . .

    Oh. My. Goodness. I would love to just hoard it all and look at its loveliness, but I've resolved to use my fabric more, so I'd make a huge Liberty quilt!

  2. Peta says:

    A Liberty fabric party! I wish I could be there. I would make a quilt for my little girl, and some matching pillows. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful fabrics!

  3. Geri says:

    My first quilt!

  4. Jenn says:

    I'd make a fabulous and colorful quilt for my dorm room, and use scraps for a pillow for my mother.

  5. Mari says:

    Plenty of square throw pillows. A different fabric of this beautiful and happy Liberty collection on each side. That's what I would do.

    All our bedding is white. Really. 'Looks like a hospital' some say and: 'your poor son, there are so many designs, suitable for kids and he has to sleep on a white pillow and under a white blanket'. We like it white. It leaves space for imagination. And now I'm imagining plenty, plenty of colourful Liberty pillows on our white beds. We could arrange them new every day and swop pillows with our kid. He doesn't mind white bedding as long as he can do pillow fights, he said. So yes: definitely throw pillows!

  6. Colleen says:

    I would make the most awesome picnic quilt! I love these fabrics. So much.

  7. Dan says:

    I love quilting, I love these fabrics. Sign me up!

  8. Polly Primrose says:

    Oh to live in New York and be able to come to your amazing shop. These fabrics are truly fabulous! I would love to create a patchwork blind for my bedroom if I were lucky enough to win.

  9. Leila says:

    I have been waiting (not so patiently) to get my hands on these fabrics! If I won I would definitely make a quilt, something English Paper pieced I think. Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. Alice says:

    Oh my! Such lovely fabric. I see a quilt and some dresses or skirts for my three-year-old in there, and some wall hangings….

  11. Karissa says:

    Oh my goodness – I love Liberty prints! I think they would be perfect for dresses, bags, and softies! Thanks for the chance!

  12. Nikki says:

    Oooh! How gorgeous! I'd use the fabric to make dresses for my nieces, and perhaps a skirt for myself.

  13. Judy Paullet says:

    This fabric collection is lovely. I would use it to make a collection of bags to use while traveling: cosmetic and toiletry bags, shoe bags, jewelry pouches. Thank you for inspiring us online every week with your creativity. Hopefully someday I will make it to NYC and visit your store!!

  14. Ellen Munsterman says:

    I'd love to use all of this gorgeous fabric to DIY my new apartment! I wish I could be there! I love Liberty of London and I love Purl Soho. Have a great time!

  15. Argelia says:

    These are beautiful. My husband is buying me a new sewing machine so having this wonderful collection would be perfect for a colorful postage stamp quilt. I'm so excited! Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. Simone says:

    These fabrics are so sweet! It would be totally awesome to make beautiful corsages with the ladies of a neighborhood-project to show these gorgeous fabrics in Amsterdam. And of course a cute skirt for myself and a little dress for my friends babygirl. :)

  17. Fawn says:

    I LOVE fabric, especially Liberty. I can make a wardrobe of skirts for my daughter and myself.

  18. NancyM says:

    What wouldn't I make?! I have been a huge fan of Liberty fabrics since I was a little girl (my mom loved them) and have had the joy of visiting the original London store. I have been wanting to make a Liberty quilt for my room.

  19. Sara says:

    I am a third generation Liberty fan! I would love to make a dress for our hot California summer.

  20. Alison Haberstroh says:

    With such beautiful fabrics, it would be something the whole family could enjoy. And, living in San Diego I think a beach blanket would be perfect. So many family days, with babies sleeping atop. Alisonhaberstroh@gmail.com

  21. annette says:

    I <3 Liberty of London fabrics!!! I am slowly gathering different Liberty fabrics to make the traditional cot quilt from "The Liberty Book of Home Sewing." If I am lucky enough to win the fabric would be put to use in the quilt and/or in another beautiful project from that book. Thank you Purl Bee and Liberty of London for the opportunity win!

  22. Alexis Brooks says:

    I would make so many things. A wallet, a purse, some really nice patchwork patches with crazy embroidery stitches for the hippie skirt I'm making for my cousin. Plus I've been needing a new bookmark for a while now. Oh the possibilities…

  23. Ashley Toth says:

    I would love to make a quilt, or possibly some dresses for my daughter! Thank you for the giveaway, so beautiful.

  24. Thorn says:

    Oh, Liberty could go anywhere in our house! I'd like to say I'd work on something lovely for my girls' rooms, but I might have to end up with some patchwork for myself..

  25. Danine Gebhart says:

    This is such a beautiful offer! I have bunches of lavender drying in an upstairs room. I would make sachets to give as surprise gifts on those cold, dreary winter days.

  26. Erin says:

    I would love to make a quilt for my girls or some cute clothes.
    Thanks,
    Erin

  27. Roberta says:

    Oh what a treat!!!! With no doubt I live in the wrong city!!!! Or I would be the 1st to arrive to tehe party!!! :( I'm remodeling my girls' room this summer. For the 10 year old I would make a canopy for her bed and some matching pillow cases…. Thank you for the contest :D. My email: roberta.loaiza@gmail.com

  28. I would spread them out on the floor, and move them around and create a living collage and I would stroke them and tell them how much I loved them and show them the scissors so they wouldn't be too afraid. Then I would dive in to a creative frenzy of cushions and lavender and lace and buttons until my lttle fingers could sew no longer. And then I would lie back with sigh of delight and admire the chaos.

  29. Sheila says:

    Oh how I would love to attend the launch, alas, wrong side of the Atlantic!
    If I won this much beautiful Liberty fabric it would have to be for an extra special quilt.

  30. Judy says:

    I would make a log cabin quilt for ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. guada says:

    They look great! I would definetely use it for make my house brighter with new cool pillows! :)

  32. jan says:

    I think I'd need to make a bunch of big squishy pillows for my porch!

  33. Caroline says:

    I grew up wearing clothes made of liberty fabrics by my grandmother in England. Liberty fabrics have a very special place in my heart. The things I would make are continuing on the tradition and make things for my kids. I live in Montana and don't get to England very often anymore and would love a little nostalgia every time they wear something made in Liberty fabrics.

  34. christine says:

    In my dreams, I would use Aqua Copeland to make a simple Built by Wendy top; Pink Charles to make the adorable tiny triangle dress for my friend's new daughter Flossie; Dark Brown Leonard to incorporate into some Collette pattern; hang some on my walls with embroidery hoops (love that idea), and all the left over bits and quarters to make little macaron coin purses!

  35. Alison says:

    I would make my third quilt. Loving all the colors! Keeping my fingers crossed.

  36. Indiengmom says:

    I would make cute little elephant and owl softies.

  37. edyael says:

    I just got my first sewing machine ever, and am so excited to make everything! With these gorgeous fabrics, I would make pillowcases, tank tops, summer skirts, and mini quilts. Thanks for the awesome contest opportunity for online readers! :)

  38. Gabrielle says:

    Dude. Such pretty fabric. I'd be thinking a Grandma's Flower Garden patchwork or something of the like.

  39. Angela says:

    These fabrics are divine!!! I would just have to make hoops like yours!

  40. Andrea T says:

    This is super exciting! I'm really looking forward to some new Liberty of London fabric.

  41. Jeanine says:

    What lovely colors. I would absolutely make dresses and skirts! Thanks for the giveaway.

  42. Darcie says:

    Ooh, Liberty fabric is like a dream… It might be meant for quilting, but I'd love to use it for some clothes for my 3 kids. So unique and fun!

  43. Sharon says:

    I Love Liberty of London!

    I would probably make a mess of it!

  44. mary says:

    everyone else has said it: quilt. i think i remember a journal about a liberty picnic blanket? or else little bags for my embroidery. oh, how i wish i could be at the party tonight!

  45. Katya says:

    I absolutely adore Liberty of London!!! When their clothes line came to Target I fell in love!!! However, things I liked were almost never in my size. After the line left I was devastated, so I took the Liberty to start making my own clothes!!! If I won this contest I would definitely make clothes and a huge quilt to match my lavender bedroom.
    Thank you Liberty of London:]

  46. Kristine says:

    I think I'd make a pillow for my couch!

  47. Christina says:

    What a stunning collection! I would start out by making myself a Wiksten Tank – it's a great pattern to showcase that lovely fabric.

  48. Amanda H. says:

    I'd make doll clothes for a few Waldorf dolls I'm intending to make next Christmas. Probably also a small quilt and cute baby things for the bun in the oven!

  49. olya says:

    I have 3 little girls, need I say more? :) I'm in love with this collection!

  50. Jane says:

    I am an avid quilter/seamstress in my early 20's who just moved across the country and had to leave 80% of my fabric behind, so I would probably piece together some patchwork 1940s style garments before turning the rest into a lap quilt for my new apartment! These prints are stunning.
