I will email a winner on December 9th.  Make sure you include a valid email in your post if you are an anonymous commenter. If you win and I can't notify you by email, then I have to choose another winner.  Check back after the 9th to see who won.  The fabric will be shipped out to the winner by December 14th (but not necessarily delivered by then).

Good luck !!!

The play a part at the first moment to raise the intertest, but like in real life there has to be more behind to connect with.
