Let the Treasure Hunt 2012 Begin

TH2012 200 Let the Treasure Hunt 2012 BeginQuiltmaker’s Treasure Hunt opens today, Tuesday Oct. 2 at 2 pm Mountain time. I hope you’ll grab a Nov/Dec Quiltmaker and get started at your leisure.

Relax and take your time browsing the sponsoring sites. The contest isn’t a race and you have until 11:59 pm MST on Dec. 4 to find all of the buttons. Here’s what one contestant said last year.

I am so excited!  As soon as I received my latest issue of Quiltmaker, I made a list of the quilt websites to visit. I originally wanted to visit each site asap, but instead, I will be visiting a new website each day. That way, I’ll be able to really take my time, investigating every aspect of each location. In the real world, I know this is a way to expand these businesses’ email directories, but I am looking forward to finding wonderful treasures along the way.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks, Joyce J.!

    I really enjoyed the Treasure Hunt. I have had great difficulty finding the treasure hunt icon on 2 websites. After much searching, I was not able to find the icon on the Robert Kaufman site or the Coats and Clark site. Any suggestions or tips???? Thanks!

      All the Treasure Hunt buttons are present and work–we verified that before the contest opened–and they have all been found by other treasure hunters.

      You can find clues in sponsor ads in the Nov/Dec ’12 issue (some fabric companies have websites listed giving credit to the designer of a quilt featured in their ad; be sure to visit the fabric company’s website).

      We’ll also be posting clues in the Treasure Hunt posts featuring individual sponsors throughout October.

      Remember that each time you enter, it’s one more chance to win; you do not need to enter at each sponsor to win.

      There is no Treasure Hunt button to look for on the Quiltmaker site. To enter from Quiltmaker, go directly to the the contest page and click on the Entry Form tab.

      Good luck–and have fun!

    I’ve been trying, for 4 days, to enter this contest. I have yet to be able to complete all 19 because of three sites; Coats and Clark, Free Spirit Fabric and Red Rooster Fabrics…..their ‘Treasure Hunt’ button does NOT work and on some does NOT exist……..HELP!!!
