Reminder: Launch Party for Liberty of London's New Lifestyle Collection!

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

Where: Purl Soho, 459 Broome Street, New York City

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! 

The Giveaways

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. . . 

Two lucky online readers will also receive a Lifestyle fabric bundle that includes all 55 fabrics! To enter, leave a comment on this post by 7pm EST on Thursday telling us what you would make with all of this beautiful fabric. Remember to leave a working email address on the comment form so we can contact you if you win (please be assured that your email address won't be public and we promise not to share it with anyone!)!

We hope to see you at the celebration this Thursday!

Wouldn't a 60-degree triangle prism quilt be great out of these fabrics?

I would love to make some outfits for my 1 yr old and me. Thanks for the giveaway!

I just bought a new sewing machine - going to start simple - project bags for my many knitting projects!!

Well, if the giveaway is open for overseas crafters... I'd probably start with making myself a bag for the KnitPro needles and crochet hooks that I'm definitely gonna buy one day ;)

I would use those gorgeous fabrics to make the Farmer's Wife Quilt. My grandmother and mother are farmer's wives (hence the pattern choice) and my other grandmother was from London. Both grandmothers were quilters and using these gorgeous fabrics to create a quilt honoring both of them would be amazing!!

Oh my goodness, it's so pretty! I'd definitely be making some little dresses for my one-year-old. And a lot of those squares would make unbelievable quilts. Gorgeous.

I might be so overwhelmed by all that gorgeous fabric that I'll put it out on display until it tells me what it wants to be. Is that crazy?
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEmily
Wow - the collection looks great! I'd make a simple quilt showcasing all the fabrics.
Thanks for the chance to win.
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatie
Love these! I'd have to pull together some fabulous nursery bedding for our baby girl on the way!

Hello-- I wish I could be there for the launch party! I think I would probably make a quilt or two out of the fabric. My sisters and niece are also big fans of Liberty and so I don't think I could get away with just making something for myself. I am keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks so much for having this give-away for those of us who can't be there!

oh how I wish I could be there...alas, one week from my due date and all the way in Rhode Island, it is not going to happen. I just finished a Liberty quilt- and I loved the way it turned out. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lavenderlimes/7302976138/in/photostream)

I would turn the winning bundle into another luxurious quilt!

I look forward to making bright and fun school clothes for my first grader!

I am so excited about making a quilt with Liberty Lifestyle! Hope you have a great party!

Love liberty london prints! I would love to make more baby stuff. For this fall I would like to make my baby girl a traveling bunting quilt and a new playmat

I've been wanting to make a Denyse Schmidt quilt - either Snake Charmer from her first book, or the Single Girl quilt - and I am thinking these fabrics would be great in either.
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPhoebe
I would make an amazing collection of quilts and make every bed in my house happy.
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAnna
I'd love to make a quilt with this fabric.
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAshanna
I have always loved Liberty fabrics. In fact, we have a running joke at our house because my husband mistakenly called them Lords of London one time when he was fussing about my fabric stash and now that is always what we refer to them as. If I win, I would like to make a couple of ties for my 2 year old son and maybe some type of patchwork skirt for myself. Thanks for the giveaway. It is so generous.
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTina Leigh
Oh what a lovely opportunity a bundle like that would be to make a one-of-a-kind heirloom quilt for the family!
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRubiy
I'd love to make a Chevron-inspired baby quilt with this gorgeous collection of fabrics. Love, love, love the new patterns and colors!
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGigi
I'd for sure make my own version of Purl Bee's yellow block house mini-quilt from last year if I won this amazing fabric bundle!
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterElisabet Molin
I would LOVE to make a baby quilt with all that lovely fabric! I'm pregnant with my first child, who is due in December. I'm obsessed with Liberty fabrics, and your shop is one of the few places I can find it (I live in TN.)
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristi
I think if I won these, I'd have to finally give quilting a try!
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJessica
I would love to make a quilt for my baby girl who will arrive this week!
July 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEmily
I have been a huge fan of Liberty of London fabrics for years and I love their new collection! I would make a quilt out of the fabrics, or use them to add patches of brightness to these little teddy bears that I make.
