Congratulations on your store opening Pauline! Your store looks great. Easy to navigate and really cute.

I had a look at your store, the only thing I can think of to improve it just that little bit more is to mention how big the motif is for fabrics. It's hard buying something online sometimes when you can't tell how big the print is. Or you could put a ruler next to the print which might help too.

Jeanie said...

Congratulations Pauline ! You have a lovely store !

I would suggest that if the font size of your words are bigger, that would be great ;>

Lyn said...

I think the website is really good, Pauline :)
An improvement is to make the headings (eg "new arrival", "on sale" etc" a little bigger in size. They are not as clear as they can be.

Otherwise, the website is super lovely
:) :)

Vic said...

How cute is your shop website...?

I LOVE the piggies... they are adorable!

Bunny B said...

Wow! The webstore's really cute! And easy to navigate. I love the neat and clean layout and design. It's great! Keep it up!

bunnybx at gmail . com

Jona said...

I really love the design! And I just found out how to display prizes in US-Dollar so I know how much I am actually paying :)
I do have one mini suggestion, though: I always like to see all the things there are so if there could be a button saying "view all items" that would be superb!

dreiwoewas said...

So wonderful fabrics!

Greetings, Jojo***

Lyndal said...

Congrats on the store opening - had a look. Nice clear photographs.

Martina said...

Nice store. Love it. Especially love the adding "nearly gone" so I now what I have to shop soon!

Frangipani said...

The site is lovely, the fabrics are great :-)
Please count me in!

Anya said...

I like the cute gifts you have on your site. Thanks for the chance for the giveaway!

Little Miss S. said...

Congratulations on a great store. I would really like to see more photos.

Nicole @ Create and Delegate said...

Great layout on the webstore. I've bookmarked it, for a future purchase.
Very excited about this giveaway. Love the fabrics.

createanddelegate@gmail.com

Katie B. said...

Love the "almost gone" tags on the photos! That is always helpful.

MB said...

These are such pretty fabrics! My daughter would love something made from them! I hope I win!!!

sookhyuniee said...

thanks for the giveaway! the fabric is gorgeous! i'd love to see more tutorials on your blog. otherwise, it's lovely and inspirational!

Henrietta said...

Beautiful fabrics! Your website is adorable, I love your little Piggies! I cannot think of anything to improve, your pictures are perfect and browsing your site is very easy, great job!

AstaD said...

It might be difficult to do but a tape measure in the photo of a fabric might help understand better the dimentions of the print.

Vicki said...

the pigs in your logo over there are so adorable! the shop looks great!

Kaye Prince said...

Your little shop is very cute - congratulations! My one suggestion would be to either add a shipping calculator to the cart area or to not require people to sign up for an account before seeing what the shipping is.

I'm in Canada and know that there are a lot of fabric stores on the web who just gouge people with international shipping (not saying you are of course!) and I never buy anywhere unless I have a chance to see what the shipping would be up front.

gill said...

Love the three little pigs!!

paulette said...

OMG...it's Christmas in blogland!! I would love to win your Give Away! Thanks so much for the chance!! Your shop is wonderful...I liked the way you clicked on the pictures and they enlarged and I love the way you showed several pictures of what is inside the book!! Your fabrics are divine!! Well done and well thought out!
Take care!!
Paulette

Amaranta said...

Ok... so, your web page is really cute... the only thing is that your colors are kind of sad... You have lovely prints of fabric and bright colors on your products, but on your page the main color is brown. I think some buyers might find that off putting. Plus, I think you should add some images to the main page, because when you enter you don't get a clear idea of the products that you might sell. You have beautiful things, show them off!!!
Thanks for your giveaway!!

Jamie said...

Love your collection of japanese oilcloths-- very unique! thanks for the giveaway!

Emily said...

Beautiful fabrics, and there are even more great ones in the shop!

A. said...

Wow! Your shop is awesome! I like how you can convert the currency so easily. The design is also very clean and reader-friendly, which I'm a big fan of.

Lilysunshine said...

I was browsing your store just yesterday and was very very tempted to buy from you.
Plenty of lovely fabrics, you have! Maybe, to make it easier to international customers, it could be interesting to have the exchange rate between SGD and USD somewhere on your site?

JacquieLH said...

Congratulations on your store opening! I would include prices in USD as well but only b/c that would make it easier for me :)

NinjaEema said...

I LOVE the piggies and your little applique bags are adorable. Thanks.

ninjaeema at aol dot com

Crissy said...

Wow, your site looks great! I love the piggies. I think if there was someway you could show us how big prints are on the fabric you sell, that would be very helpful. I know some site I've visited have a ruler next to the fabric so you can tell. Other than that suggestion I think your store is awesome, very well put together!

crissybell17(at)gmail(dot)com

Neky White said...

I have viewed your page since the opening and the things I like the most about it, is the design and the things you made! specially the pouches with metal frame n_n

summernightsmiles said...

Oh, you've got such a cute shop! Love the colours! And everything seems to be so well organized. And of course the Japanese fabric is just too cute. Great job!

missknitta said...

Your store is adorable! I really love the trims -- so cute :) I also love the idea of the "almost gone" section, it's really useful!

Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway :)

Deci said...

I love the whole look of your store! Wonderful! Only suggestion is I love when fabric stores offer free patterns and ideas to inspire me, and show creative ways to use their fabric.

Love those fabrics!!!

I love the strawberry garden black fabric the best. Great website layout, too. Very user friendly.

jesslinq at gmail dot com

sfer said...

Here's one suggestion (which might have been mentioned above, I'm not sure...): say on the front page of the item list how big the fabric piece is or how long the trim is. That is, if the price refers to half a yard or to a fat quarter (for fabric) or to half yard or a whole yard (for trim). I know it's only one click away, but it does save time :-)

Thanks for the chance to win!

RosaMaría said...

Your site is so pretty and the fabrics are beautiful!! many thanks for the chance!!!

Tara said...

Thank you for holding this give away.

The site looks like it has fantastic graphic design. One thing I would suggest is that you put at least some products for sale on the home page, giving them more exposure, and giving your customers less links to wade through and therefore giving you more chances to sell.

Kerry said...

Graphics are lovely. It would be great to see even more thumb nails per page when you look at fabrics- you have such a lot. Love it!

Skooks said...

Your layout and your little pigs are cute! And how cute are those little bear face measuring tapes?!

my first thought is i would like to see options of stuff im buying vs. cute piggies when the page loads...show me the goods! i want to see some of the cute fabrics on display!! cute shop! thanks for a chance in the giveaway.

Jessica Christensen said...

Cute stuff, cute store. I would just put in USD on your products if you want international orders. I don't know the conversion rate. Other than that, it's great. I love your Japanese fabrics. So adorable.

merlinthecat said...

I really like your new shop. I love the colors you used for the background, very easy to look at. and I love the piggies!

Queen of Kim Chee Kingdom said...

First, the piggies are too cute! I like how you can sort the fabric by price, name, etc. I like to sort by price when I have a budget I need to stay in.

Jessi said...

I like the fonts used and the colour pallette! I bookmarked your site - we have no cool fabric shops where I live!

Ariane said...

What a great giveaway. I love your website. You have a lot of cool little crafty items in there. Plus I love the japanese fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.

no4daughter said...

Nice shop. I would further sort the fabrics by weight so you can see at a glance without clicking into the individual item.

Tanya said...

I love your store site! I like how you have the fabric in sections so I could go directly to what I would be looking for!

Jerri said...

Your shop seems fine. I really like the pig with the scissors.

Isabel said...

What a cute store! I especially love the graphics for view my cart and checkout. Great font choice!

I LOVE japanese fabric. Mmmmmm. I think the pigs are very cute and I can't think of anything to suggest you improve. Sorry bout that~

Doina said...

Great giveaway! Beautiful fabrics! Your website is adorable!

Julie said...

how perfect! i'm just starting to get into quilting! my only comment would be to make the header a little smaller.

I think you have a great selection and a wonderful look to your site.
Thanks for this giveaway!

Bethany said...

I think you did a good job with the website, the piggies are cute!!! I think that the discounts should be bolder so people can see them quickly!!!

Tawny said...

I love the little piggies banner across the top, but I noticed the "cart" and the "about us" sections at the top are blending a little with the background colour. Maybe punch up the colour on the labels, or choose a different one for the background? Meh, I really know nothing about website design, so kudos to you for making a webpage to begin with! :)

Steve & Tara said...

i like that your site converts currency

The Mangerchine's said...

my two suggestions for your new site would be to have some pictures of hand crafted items made with your materials and to sell patterns also.

Baby.Got.Craft said...

I LOVE that you can select which currency you want to view - VERY helpful!

Katie said...

Love the piggies, and the fabric looks great. Would love to see the scale of the prints. Looks great!

Jenny Hodges said...

I like the free delivery for orders in Singapore! Fabric can be so pricey there, so this is a nice benefit. My in-laws live in Singapore, I'll be passing on your site to my Mother in law for sure! I also like how you can set the currency to either US or SG$.

Firesong said...

I love your FatConnection store. I now have a place to find all those wonderful Japanese craft books that I covet.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Jackie Davis said...

Went to your site and loved the piggies! Who designed them! The Almost Gone link is great! I do wish I could shop there but am not able to, yet! Hanhan is 3 months older than my son! too cute.

I'd like to see the USD price as I have no clue what your items would cost me. Love you stuff!

Lori Kay said...

I like the little flags you have on the items that are "almost gone." That's helpful info.

Thanks for participating in the giveaway.

Anonymous said...

Hi Pauline, thanks for a wonderful giveaway. Having made a purchase from your shop yesterday I found it very easy to use and navigate the site and really like the USD currency option. Also when you say something is almost gone.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Very cute website. I am not very good at making suggestions. Does your blog name hold a special meaning? I might change the name and not say FAT ;-) Thanks for entering me!

Hananeko said...

I love your selection of fabrics and the overall layout of the site. Thanks for the chance to win!

dana said...

oh my gosh, those pigs for your logo kill me. so stinking cute.

I love the dancing pigs @ your shop. So cute and so cheerful.
Congratulations on opening a store. Great stuff.

Thanks too for offering such a generous giveaway.

emma said...

lovely website, the only thing I could think of was to maybe separate the menus with a border so that it divides up the page and is a bit easier to navigate?

emma said...

ahhh I looove Japanese fabrics! Your store is adorable too!

Eileen said...

not sure if anyone else said this but it might be helpful to make your adorable three piggies a bit smaller, so you get to the fabrics sooner. adorable fabrics!! have a great day!!!!!

SheilaC said...

Beautiful Japanese fabrics!! Thanks for a great give away!

Stop by when you get a chance :)

Congrats on your grand opening!

Website looks well thought out. I noticed there was no links page, which may be good for encouraging others to link to your site if you are willing to link to them.

also a bit more information ab out the fabrics is always good, like where they come from etc.

thanks for the opportunity to win!

Nanbon44 said...

love the piggies and the ease in use of your site, but my favorite is the kits, the felted desserts are so cute ,please enter my name in your giveaway, ladycolmn(at)aol(dot)com from Florida Gulf Coast area

~ Kim ~ said...

Your shops is great. I think if you include a link that allows you to shop by Colour it would be good too.

LFinn said...

I like the layout of your website, and found the navigation to be easy. I especially like that you have separated the fabrics into "new" "on sale" and "almost gone". That is very helpful! My only suggestion would be to make the categories on the left (Books/Felt/Fabric) a little bolder or brighter--more eye-catching! Thanks for a fun giveaway.

Victoria said...

Great to discover your blog through this giveaway! :o)

I like how you can browse by different categories but it would be good to be able to browse by designer, too.

I love the design of your new site, but I'd like to see some product on the first page to whet my appetite.

I love love your cute measuring tapes. Adorable!

I love the little piggies thanks for the chance to win, the store looks great to me.

Miss Prickly said...

My favorite thing on your website is your font. It's very cute and inviting. I love the colors too.

tong said...

I love your shop! I love how all the different items are categorized! My only suggestion is to have the capability of adding multiple items on the same page to the shopping cart, instead of adding one at a time, going into the shopping cart, and going back again. Thank you for the giveaway!

I posted the giveaway on my blog's side bar under fabrics fabrics!

Susie said...

Great shop!
Perhaps you could add some products right on the home page (like "featured products" or "new this week" etc. - to draw you in during those first few seconds and give a taste of what's in your shop. Otherwise - cute stuff!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I had a look at your store and think its looks great! Easy to navigate and I like the dual currency. Sometimes its hard to tel what scale the pattern on a fabric is, so maybe including a ruler (or similiar) in the pics?
Overall I think it looks great and will definately be back to shop!

I adore the Japanese fairytale fabrics, and the cotton tapes and the felt buttons!

Wish me luck!

Emma :)

I really like your shop. I like that when you click a picture it expands and the background darkens. I also like that you provide many views of the items.

I think the pigs may be a bit big at the top, I like them, but I'd also like to see what you're selling as soon as I get to the page.

I love your products!

I love the little piggies in the banner! And I also like that you have a "new arrivals" category and an "almost gone" category. You stock some beautiful things - well done! And thanks for your generosity in hosting a giveaway.

I like how easy it is to change over to USD. The design is also nice: clean and inviting.

Tiff said...

Nothing about your site needs improving! It's so cute! I love the pigs! And it's easy to use. And I like that you can change currencies.

Simply EC said...

I checked out your shop, but I found it difficult to navigate. I know I love fabric/notions sites that have images of their new arrivals, special collections and sales with links to the items right on their front page, so you know right away what kind of fabric shop you're dealing with.

Be blessed!

anne said...

Oooh so cute, I like the almost sold sign but not sure on the brown colour for the background, also your print is a little small. A currency converter may help. Thank you for sharing

Anonymous said...

Love your site. It was easy to navigate. It would be nice to be able to see how big the prints are. sang@gci.net

Lisa said...

Your shop is very nice--I found it easy to navigate. The only suggestion I have offhand is most if not all the photos had a "on sale" banner across the left upper corner that was a bit distracting. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I love Japanese fabric especially!

Deb - Two Cheeky Monkeys said...

I love the cute look of your store! I have to agree with the above comment though, the "on sale" sign across the photos was distracting. All the best with your store!

rayamashita said...

Love your website. Hmm, maybe a gallery of people's completed projects would be nice to add here. Otherwise I love the clean layout. I hope I win your awesome fabrics. The first thing that comes to mind are bibs and a baby quilt! I have a niece coming in August and as a first time aunt am dreaming up ways to spoil her! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Love the fabrics. Looked at your web site and can't think of anything that needs improving.

Ruby Star said...

WHat a cute little store you have. If anything, i'd make the little pigs a little smaller and the titles underneath them a bit bigger. I can't see too well and big writing helps me find what i'm looking for a lot easier.

but the only thing is if you want to sale to the rest of the world, i think you need to put the usa dollar price next to the SGD

Congratulation on your store opening!!.. Ithink your store is cute with that 3 smiling pigs, maybe I will suggest you to put some measurement or ruler next to your fabric picture so we can tell how small/big is the print.
Thanks for this great giveaway!

Thanks for the giveaway! I like that your new website is very easy to navigate. I can find what I am looking for from the home page and that is a wonderful feature that some websites overlook.

Shevvy said...

Lovely fabrics on your website. My suggestion is to have the measurement the price is for on the fabric page, rather than having to click on each individual fabric to find out.
Also to have a currency converter gadget for those of us not in the US so we know how much the singapore dollar is worth.

burlap+blue said...

great site! I love how easy to navigate it is!

Sylvie said...

I like your store. Only suggestion I can think of is to make it clearer where the store is situated (Singapore, I think?), in the "about us" section. It would make it clearer if it's local or international shipping. I realize you say it on the shipping and policy page, but some repetition never hurt.

Thanks for the chance at winning that lovely fabric.

Thanks!

Morgan said...

I like your store a lot! Cute colors and I like the font you use for the different sections. But maybe make those a bit bigger, or in a box or something so they're more visible? Cute pigs, too!
Thanks for the giveaway!

your web site is darling. the one thing i would change is on the front page, i would incorporate more white space--and i would make the headings a little larger and maybe a darker color. right now, to my poor visioned-eyes, it all blends a bit more than i would like.

i LOVE the piggies and you have really cute stuff. thanks for the contest!

Beautiful fabrics - I'd love to enter your giveaway - thank you!

Shipping rates are a big deal for online purchasing, especially out of country rates. I like to see a very quick way for me to be able to figure out how much shipping will be for an order. I think the easiest rate calculation for a purchaser is a flat rate per $ spent, or a price per range of yardage (i.e. 2 - 7m = $, under 2m = $).

Love love love your store - quirky, fun, very appealing! If anything could i suggest maybe getting more bits & pieces to put projects together - like zips, fasteners etc...but really the shop is totally fantastic, I will def. be back!

I wish you all the best with your opening store:D. I love it, you have a wonderful selection of fabrics and books. And what can I say about the giveaway the prizes are breathless!!
I was looking at your store and there's only two things to improve for me. Firstly more information about shipping prices for example how many can you fit on diferents packages (flat rate envelope, medium box, large box)with prices, this can make our shopping more easy. Secondly on the "books and magazines section", make pictures a little bigger
But I must say that looove your store and the products are so cute :D

I really like the range of fabrics that you have in your store. Some of the pictures could be a little larger, but maybe that is just because I am looking at it on a netbook!

Kate said...

I like the pigs, but I do think your website needs many, many more actual photos of fabric or stuff made from fabric on that front main page. I think that would improve it!
thanks for the chance to win!

I would change the phrase "handmade and cute gifts" to better telegraph what types of gifts -- also, I think you want to change the wording on your zipper pouches.

Penelope said...

Penelope said...

hello!

i visited your store and i think it's very user-friendly. but i agree with the other comments about the size of the letters (maybe my eyesight is tired of all this giveaway mania!!!)

i posted about the giveaway in my blog, though unfortunately i didn't sign up to participate. i know i know, my bad!!! but i'll host a giveaway soon to compensate!

The three piggies are great, you can see them dancing moving....

I really like how you set up your shop. The only problem for me: With my screen resolution of 1024x768 and two small screens, the header image and the whole layout seem huge. On a bigger screen with higher resolution I did not see that problem =)

A lovely bunch of fabrics you have there n__n
