About a year and a half ago I entered an online giveaway and won! My prize was an autographed copy of Meg Cox’s The Quilter’s Catalog- A Comprehensive Resource Guide. I love it! If you’ve never checked it out you are missing out. It’s a very insightful book for both beginner and advanced quilters.
Anyway, ever since then… I subscribe to her newsletter. This month’s issue is the first with nice bright pictures and the format is more like a print out newsletter. To subscribe, go here: http://tiny.cc/lugre
The newsletter included information on something totally new for me: Alliance for American Quilts Contest.
This competition is for donations of 16″ x 16″ quilts. “All entries will be auctioned with 100% of the proceeds supporting the AAQ and its projects. This auction is one of our most successful annual fundraisers and a great way for quiltmakers to support our mission in a creative way.”
The theme is Alliances: People, Patterns, Passion. For complete guideline information click HERE. They are giving out tons of prizes and the grand prize winner will receive.. get this:
