Our Contests Are Real!

I did a guild program last week in tiny little Cedar Rapids, Nebraska. It’s always so much fun to meet new quilters. I say hello to as many people as possible before the meeting begins because you just never know who you’ll run into.

I was tickled pink to meet Cathy Werner from St. Edward, Nebraska, another tiny town in the area. Cathy had the good fortune to be one of the winners in Quiltmaker‘s 2012 Treasure Hunt contest!

Cathy Werner, right, a winner in QM’s 2012 Treasure Hunt contest, is with Diane Harris, QM’s Interactive Editor, at a guild meeting in Cedar Rapids, Nebraska.

She was even carrying a handmade yellow purse from Timeless Treasures fabrics she won in the contest! They’re from the Eclipse line. It was so great to hear that she is using up the prizes! We laughed and chatted about all the things quilters chat about.

She mentioned that at first she thought the Treasure Hunt was a hoax—she was pretty surprised when a large box of prizes actually arrived.

These boxes of prizes went out to Treasure Hunt winners in the 2012 contest.

So I just wanted to assure everyone that Quiltmaker‘s contests are real. We really do give away all the products we talk about during contest promotions. You can always see current contests under the “Contests” tab on our home page at quiltmaker.com.

Right now our Christmas in July contest is current (contest is for U.S. residents). We’re partnering with Gammill to give away a longarm quilting machine, “The Charm,” as well as yards of fabric and other wonderful quilty prizes. There will be 11 lucky winners. One could be you! And it’s not a hoax!
