Sponsor Giveaway

First off, thanks everyone for your supportive words around the carpal tunnel surgery I'll be getting soon.  Bernie is a nurse and has assured me that the procedure is only a few minutes.  I can do that. 

Secondly, thanks so much to those of you who joined in on the charity quilt auction!  The child sized quilt has been sold to the highest bidder - $200!!  All of that money will be used to purchase Plan Canada's Gifts of Hope.  It was an easy thing to do, and I want to encourage other quilters with blogs to do the same thing.

And now, the fine folks at Lapel Stick just informed me that they will give away their product to 2 of my blog readers!

They even offered to do the mailing themselves so that the winners hopefully get it before the holidays.  We can't make any firm promises when it comes to the mail, so let's do this quick!

Here's the rules:

* Enter by leaving a comment.  I need to be able to find you, so hopefully you can leave an email if you are 'anonymous'.

* You get ONE entry just because, by leaving a comment below.

* You get a SECOND entry if you become a follower at our Canadian link-party blog.  You can find it HERE Leave a comment here below to say that you are following that blog.  It features WIP Wednesday posts from creative fibre-related bloggers/artists/crafters all over Canada specifically.  Yes - I'm totally using this opportunity to push our membership to 100 so that we can start Feature Fridays and really show off the talent there. : )

* Contest closes Sunday, December 4th at 6 pm-ish, so that I can get the winners' addresses off to Lapel Stick for mail-out ASAP.

'What the heck is Lapel Stick?' you might be asking.  You can read about it HERE.  I use it all the time for sticking fabric down when I do my art or quilted postcards.  They also supply me with samples when I run the postcard classes.  Unfortunately, shipping this product costs about four times the cost of the fabric glue itself, so I think this is very helpful of them to mail directly. 


Let the games begin! ; )
