QUILTY GRAB-BAG GIVEAWAY!
When we wrap a Quilty shoot — like we did last Tuesday — there’s lots of cleanup to do. We have demo materials that need to be put someplace, supplies that need to be restocked, etc. There’s a lot of stuff that actually kind of doesn’t have a home anymore because…well, we’re done with it.
“We should give it away,” said Rebecca Fons, my kid sister and producer of Quilty.
“You are so right,” I said. “What should the giveaway be?”
“I think,” said Rebecca, “That it would be cool to see what people have been inspired to make because of something they saw on the show or in the magazine.”
“Brilliant!” I said. Then I ate some toast.
So that’s what we’re going to do! We have not one, not two, not three or four but FIVE boxes of Quilty goodies to give away! If you were inspired to start your own “Pink Waves” quilt because you saw it in Quilty magazine, post a picture of what you’ve done on Facebook. Were you inspired to make a “Pie N’ Crust” baby quilt because you learned about curved seams on Quilty the show? Show us! Post a picture! The first five people to post a pic of something they made or are in the process of making because of Quilty, will get one of these boxes. Cool, right??
These boxes are full of good stuff. Full of things like:
+ demo materials (also known as “step-outs” which are sample blocks, pieces and parts of blocks, cut pieces, etc. for showing how-to’s on the show — you could totally use them to start a whole new quilt.)
+ notions (scissors, marking tools, etc.)
+ extra fabric
+ miscellaneous STUFF (all sewing related, of course)
I personally separated the goods into five equal-as-I-could estimate boxes and they are ready to ship. Each box is different, not every box has all the stuff I mentioned above, but definitely some of it and, as I said, they’re all equal, value-wise. I can’t really put a price value on them because…well, I just don’t want think that hard, but they’re worth a few shekels, trust me.
So do it! Rebecca will monitor the FB page and make sure the first five peeps to do this get their box. And keep watching the blog and the page because there may be more boxes on the way… We need to do a little more spring cleaning! And hey, if you miss the boxes this time, or if you’ve already shown us stuff you’ve been inspired to make, don’t be sore at all — you’re absolutely as special as anyone who gets a goodie bag this time around and we always, always love to see that you’re using Quilty in your life.
