We only have 2 days before our 5K giveaway begins, and that means only 2 more sponsor highlights left.  You guys are going to fall in love with the creativity and sweetness of our sponsor today, Simply Divine Fabrics.  When we say that Tanaya, the owner, is a pleasure to work with, it seems too much of an understatement.  She's wonderful!!!!

Tanaya owns Simply Divine Fabrics in  Elizabeth City, North Carolina.  This shop sells everything from gorgeous fabrics to ready-made clothing.  Here's how Tanaya got started.

Simply Divine Fabrics was born out of a new found love of all things Fabric and Boutique-sewing. We sell quilt-weight and dress- weight cottons, knits, flannels and fleece. In-between time, along with all those all-important customer sales, I spent my time sewing and designing patterns in the shop, dressing my windows with the latest in the boutique and euro patterns/styles. One thing lead to another and before you knew it, we were THE go-to place to get some of the latest in boutique dresses and handbags! Soon, House of Pink Couture was born, a design house that was meant to capture the spirit and strength of young girls, tweens, and the “girly” woman!

Simply Divine Fabrics is more than just a fabric shop and go-to store for boutique dresses.  They keep themselves busy with tons more exciting ventures. Take a look at the Alice in Wonderland & The Sound of Music theater production that they outfitted.


Over the years, along with classes and community theater projects ( Alice dresses in ‘Alice in Wonderland’, plus my first Head Costumer job in ‘The Sound of Music’ this past year),  we found we were embodying more of the ‘House of Pink Couture’ than ‘Simply Divine Fabrics’. Never being able to say “no” to what God has laid on my heart, we have let our “custom design” side lead the way, so here we are!


For 2013, we will continue to tweak of vision and fulfill our first contract/shipment of our spring and summer line of House of Pink Couture in stores along the Outer Banks N.C. We are also on tap to be a custom designer/costumer for a major children’s stage production in late spring 2013 (Beauty and the Beast!) We have truly been blessed and awestruck on how much FUN we’re having with my sewing machine and a few design tools!

Simply Divine Fabrics and Tanaya are a force to be reckoned with!!Tanaya has GENEROUSLY offered an Emmaline Dress & Molly Jacket to one lucky winner!!!  The winner will work with Tanaya to choose the size/fabric.  This prize is valued over $100 and perfect for spring!!!
