It's a GIVEAWAY

As a small way of saying THANK YOU to everyone who stops by to read this blog and all the members of the Quilting on a Budget Yahoo group, I'm having a Giveaway!

WHAT YOU CAN WIN:

Generously donated by Marguerita McManus (author of the other book I'm giving away And the wonderful budget quilting table I've blogged about!), is the book QUILTING FOR THE MEN IN YOUR LIFE: 24 Quilted Projects to fit his Style. From table toppers for his den, to pillow and quilts for his bedroom, these beautiful projects will really appeal to the men on your gift list!

Next, is Marguerita's own wonderful quilting book titled CRAZY SHORTCUT QUILTS: Quilt as You Go and Finish in Half the Time
Includes instructions for 15 projects including wall art, pillows, queen-sized quilt, fabric valances and accent throws. More than 175 color photos. GREAT methods for using all those decorative stitches on your machine. Really a fabulous book and one you'll turn to often for new quick quilt ideas.


And my oh my... what else can I give away that would provide some fun or ease your budget.... let's see... Let's add in this one year subscription to FAMILY FUN MAGAZINE! I subscribe to this magazine for ideas for crafts and games to play with my grandson when he's here for babysitting days. It's packed with kid-friendly recipes, craft instructions and more. Whether you're a parent, grandparent or just love kids, this is a great magazine.

And one more giveaway.... that's right... that's FOUR items in this giveaway! This one is just for YOU. It's a $25.00 Amazon.com gift certificate. Hopefully, you'll tuck it away and after the holidays you can buy yourself a little somethin' something -- Amazon does carry fabric, sewing notions, quilt books, magazines and more, so you will be able to find that little item you wanted for Christmas but didn't get.

THE RULES OF THE GIVEAWAY
  1. The Giveaway will end on Friday, December 5 at 9pm (EST).
  2. I will announce the winners on this blog on Sunday, December 7, and send the winners email. IF YOUR ENTRY DOES NOT CONTAIN AN EMAIL ADDRESS YOUR ENTRY WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE DRAWING.
  3. Members of the QUILTING ON A BUDGET Yahoo group will receive two entries to the Giveaway once they leave a comment. This applies ONLY for those who are a member prior to 11/27/08, though everyone else is welcome to come join our group!
  4. To enter, you must leave a comment here on this blog. Make sure your Blog ID or comment provide me with your email address.
  5. Winners will be "drawn from a hat" by my two year old grandson. I'll try and take photos.
  6. I will announce the winners here and also send you an email. You must send me email with your mailing address within four days of my email to you. If you don't respond, you will forfeit your giveaway item.
  7. One giveaway prize per person.
  8. International readers are welcome, but shipping will be via the least expensive method.
Good Luck!

Wow did I ever find a lot of info on your blog. I'm looking forward to being more awake so that I can read the article on organizing your sewing room.
One thing is for sure, If I won the book on quilts for boys or men that would help me to clean up my sewing stash. It's hard to find ideas for guy quilts.
I'll be back to this blog often.
Thanks.
