I hope everyone has been enjoying all our giveaways recently! The most recent one, for our 15,000 Facebook likes is a doozy. Go enter if you haven’t already! We love having the opportunity to share fabrics, notions, books and tools with all of you, and we really appreciate your participation.
What would you do with all that stuff if you won? You’d probably make a quilt or two. But then what would you do with those quilts? If you are a typical quilter, you’d probably give it away. Whether to someone you know and love, someone you feel deserves it or someone less fortunate, a quilt is the perfect way to show that the recipient is cared for.
I like to stay on top of what’s going on in the quilting world, and I cannot tell you how many stories I’ve read about quilters and quilt groups who work so hard making quilts to give away. I wish I could list them all but there are so many. We try to pay homage to them on our Pinterest Quilt Stories board but somehow I don’t think we have pinned them all. Not only are quilters some of the most clever, creative and competent people, they are also compassionate and caring. Individuals and quilt groups donating their work locally and national charity programs like Project Linus and Quilts of Valor all provide warmth and a little extra love to those who need it most.
Check out any of these charities’ websites, or contact your local quilt groups and guilds for information about charitable opportunities if you want to get involved.
I wish everyone could win! We do what we can to get you some free new fabrics or quilt supplies every now and then, and you’ll turn it into something amazing that one lucky person will love forever. Good things beget good things and we all love that, so make sure to enter to win, then you can enter others in your quilt giveaway to spread a bit more quilty joy around the world. Good luck to you all!
Just because there is a nice big prize to give away right now doesn’t mean that we’ve got nothing left to give. Keep checking our website for more chances to win. Like my mom says about her weekly lottery ticket purchase, “You can’t win if you don’t play!” We always announce our giveaways on Facebook and Pinterest, so join us there too. Have a great weekend!
