How well do you know Northcott?

Let’s play a game: tell us about a project using Northcott fabric or why you love their fabrics, answer the following questions correctly, and you’ll have a chance to win great prizes of Northcott fabric.

Northcott (properly known as Northcott Silk Inc.) is currently famous for the stunning collection of “Stonehenge” fabrics and pre-cuts, which you can find here at Erica’s, but the company has been producing quality fabrics for more than 75 years.

Their fabrics offer a great variety of styles, including wonderful floral prints, children’s lines and whimsical holiday groups. Northcott is also a great supporter of the fight against breast cancer with their “Quest for a Cure” program which donates a portion of the purchase price for every yard they sell of selected collections to Breast Cancer Research.

Be sure to check out everything we have from this noted company! (Scroll down the index page and look for “Northcott”)

Now for your questions:

  1. What city is the home of the US division of Northcott?
  2. Name one of Northcott’s designers.
  3. What is the name of Northcott’s Stonehenge 5” x 5” squares (named by an Erica’s customer at a Northcott special event here at the store)?
  4. What is the name of a basic line from Northcott that is also a word for spots on your skin?

Answer the questions correctly, and we’ll enter you in the drawing for two packs of Stonehenge 5” x 5” squares and a package of mixed fat quarters of Northcott fabrics for each winner (we’ll have 6 winners!). And 2 of those winners will also get a Stonehenge tote bag!

The comments must be posted to this blog, but they won’t show up until the contest is over, on Thursday, February 23, 2012!

Good luck!
