Several quilting and sewing contests and giveaway opportunities have crossed my desktop, and I don't want you to miss out. Check the deadlines: they're coming up fast!
|Stop by the Quilting Arts booth at IQF for a
chance to win this tote full of goodies.
Do you have a quilt, wall hanging, or garment you're especially proud of? Enter it into the 2012 Martha Pullen Sewing Awards competition presented by Sew Beautiful magazine. The grand prize winner received an all-espenses-paid trip to the Martha Pullen School of Art Fashion, and the winner in each category will receive recognition in the magazine and a $200 gift certificate to the Martha Pullen store. DEADLINE to enter is November 15, 2012.
The Makerie Creative Retreat and The Old Glory Antiques Fair are offering a scholarship to the 2013 retreat. All you have to do is send in a brief application and a creative quilt block design. The postmark DEADLINE is Nov. 5, 2012, so get the details now if you want to enter.
Are you at the International Quilt Festival this week, or do you know someone who is going? Make sure you (or they) stop by the Quilting Arts Magazine exhibit, exhibit, Booth #209. At our booth you can test drive our interactive eMags, check out our digital issues, sign up for or renew a subscription, see some lovely quilts, and more. We will host a free raffle for a bag full of Interweave products, including Quilting Arts books, DVDs, and magazines. This prize is worth more than $500! (The winner will be notified by email.)
Speaking of IQF and the Quilt Scene, Candy Glendenning is giving away an extra copy of Quilt Scene magazine, featuring her reversible headband pattern, plus some of her yummy hand-dyed Candied Fabrics. Candy is picking a winner Thursday, November 1, so visit her blog and leave a comment to be eligible.
Have fun and good luck!
