Welcome to all our Blog Hoppers…..I’m proud to have been invited to be part of Quilting Gallery’s 4th Birthday celebrations and their Blog Hop Party this year and thanks must go to Michele for organising it. This is going to be so much fun visiting everyone and making new blog-friends :)
The Quilting Gallery site is a great starting point for new bloggers (and us oldies!!!)….it has a Quilting Bloggers Directory with more than 4,440 blogs from 71 countries. In the Quilt Shop Locator, you’ll find brick & mortar shops, online retailers, retreat facilities and long-arm quilters. In Quilter’s Market you’ll find fabulous quilting products. There’s also a world-wide geographic directory of Quilt Guilds being developed and weekly themed virtual quilt contests and swaps throughout the year as well as lots of other fun things.
So if you’ve never visited the Quilting Gallery before, I recommend a visit!
Now, we all know that when you go to a party, there are always lots of people and lots of presents…….this Blog Hop Party is the same! Woohoo!!!!!!!!…..there are over 200 party-goers you can visit from over 20 countries…..that’s one helluva party!!!!!! The link to all of the blogs you can visit is listed here..
It starts today and goes until December 17th (18th for us Aussies).
Now, for my giveaway……you just knew it was coming didn’t you!??!
I’m giving away this fantastic timesaving tool….the SideWinder. A portable bobbin winder that is a Godsend when you’re in the middle of a sewing frenzy and your bobbin runs out….you know what I’m talking about!!!!!
This beauty is the Limited Edition SideWinder…..it’s pink, to promote the awareness of Breast Cancer research, and comes with bonus scissors and a tape measure (both pink!) It takes 2 AA batteries and winds those bobbins in a whizz!
All you need to do is leave a comment telling me what is the best ‘trick’ you have learnt for sewing/stitching/quilting that you would have loved to have known as a new quilter. That will give you one chance at winning the SideWinder.
For another chance, simply become a follower and leave another comment telling me so. If you’re already a follower, you’re a gem!!!…..and you won’t be left out…..leave a comment and I’ll include a second chance for you too!
I’ll draw the winner randomly using my fave little tool…..Mr RNG….on Dec 18th at 10am AEST (I know the actual Blog Party finishes on Dec 17, USA time, but I’m usually one of those that comes early and stays till last, so I cant break that pattern, can I now!!?? LOL)
So get those entries in….good luck and let’s start hopping!
xoxo Wendy :O)
