    Please help! I’ve tried to enter the contest several times. There is no scroll bar on the right side of the entry form page and thus I cannot submit the completed form. I have tried several times. Could you help me out with this? Jennifer C. is my favorite fiction writer and I’d love to enter this contest! Thanks for any help anyone can give me!

    • June says:

      We know the form is working. Unfortunately we can’t diagnose individual tech problems. Best suggestion is to try a different browser–Firefox, Google Chrome, etc. Hope that helps.

    I agree with Sandra being an Aussie in South Australia, don’t know how I started reading the Elm Creek series for the magically warm human touch radiates through to the quilter’s needle. I love the romantic fabric for the quilt and look forward to the next pages of this novel. but I haven’t read her last so must do that. Good luck to you in the States for having this opportunity.

  10. Sandra McClelland says:

    I have read a number of Jennifer’s books and really enjoy them. I live in Central Queensland, Australia and think the idea of the annual Quilters’ Camp is so exciting. Do wish the contests were open who are not residents in the USA. Very best wishes.
