Block Party Sponsors: Thank You! Giveaway!

We had such a good time last week in Portland during Quiltmaker‘s Block Party. We partnered with a number of industry leaders who provided support and giveaways for those attending. We’re really grateful to all of them. Below are the quilty goods donated for welcome bags, decorations and prizes.

Andover 300x198 Block Party Sponsors: Thank You! Giveaway!

Andover Fabrics sent (what else!) fabric that we used to create centerpieces. After dinner, the fabric was given to winners at each table. One of our keynote speakers was Jo Morton, who designs fabric for Andover using her collection of antique and vintage prints.

    I would not give up my Quiltmaker magazine when the down turn in the economy hit me hard. I have read and used this magazine for many, many years. I have learned so much from it and usually find at least one (normally more) patterns I want to try. I can’t imagine attending their Block Party. Had to be a lot of fun! A goodie bag would make the trip/event an even bigger joy! I would love to win one – some many generous companies shared their fabulous products with you. You have given them a special place for all of us to tell them thank you for sharing with us and with you.

  26. Donna Harry says:

  27. Pam Stephenson says:

    Whew! What a lot of comments. I have nothing new or scintillating to add, except that the shows looked fab, the items looked fab and it would be fantastic to win something!

  28. LV prettie says:

    Thank you for sharing the extra’s. I would love to win. I would also like to attend a block party another year if they have one nearby.

  29. Hueisei says:

  30. LaVera Crownover says:

    I have thoroughly enjoyed “Quiltmaker” for years and it is my “go to” for patterns I have enjoyed using. Sorry I couldn’t attend the block party, but the goodie bags are amazing with such beautiful fabric and other things. What exceptional sponsors!
