Did you all know there was such a thing as International Quilting Weekend? Well, there is, and The Quilt Show is doing it up big! I am simply going to copy the letter that they have sent me. Its a great opportunity for those of you who 1) don’t want to join, or 2) are thinking of joining and want to see what its all about. I am a huge fan of the show, and have watched every single episode from the very beginning up to present day. There are lots of ideas and inspiration, and plenty of instruction too. They try to cover a wide range of quilting interests, from the traditional to modern, hand-quilting to long arm quilting, and art quilts as well as precision work. There’s simply something for everyone! You can start by clicking here. You won’t believe some of the great prizes they are offering!
Dear Quilting Friend:
Big news here! In honor of International Quilting Weekend, March 20-22, 2015, The Quilt Show, the web TV show hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, will open all of its shows from the first nine series– shows 100-1513 –for the entire weekend. This means that, for three special days, everyone will have the chance to view over 200 shows, featuring some of the quilting world’s leading artists, for FREE.
This year’s sponsors are contributing over $5000 in prizes, including the Grand Prize, a BERNINA 550 QE. Other prizes you have a chance to win are:
• Innova – Have your quilt professionally quilted ($500 value)
• Superior Threads – five $100 gift certificates
• RJR Fabrics – a Delicious Selection of RJR Fabrics
• AccuQuilt – GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter
• Missouri Star Quilt Company – $500 in Quilter’s Cash plus signed copies of Volume 1 of Block Magazine and Man Sewing Swag
As you may already know, I appeared as the featured artist on TQS in show 1512. If you didn’t have the opportunity to see this show the first time around, now you’ll have the chance to see it—and so many other terrific shows—at no cost in this unprecedented three-day offer.
I hope that you’ll share this information with all of your quilting friends. It’s a fantastic opportunity to enjoy three days of learning and fun without leaving your home…all for free.
Enjoy the shows, and thanks for helping to spread the word!
I have been busy working away in the studio, having great fun experimenting with different backgrounds for all those 3 inch colored squares I cut out. In between I do a little more quilting on that big nine-patch quilt. I’ll be back soon with some fun pictures. In the meantime, pop some popcorn, and enjoy a few of the shows for free! I think I might have a Quilt Show marathon this weekend to celebrate 🙂
