I can't believe that I have reached 200 posts! How exciting! I know that other people have done something special for their 200th posts. I guess that I could, too. I will put a little gift pack together and pick a winner this week.
To enter, post a link to my blog and the giveaway in your blog and then post a comment on my blog. I will have to go through some of my patterns and fabric and see what I can come up with. I will post a picture within the next day or two.
Let's say do this by Thursday at 9 PM Eastern time and I will pick a winner. And I will be checking your blogs for a link. :)
Happy 200th post to me!! :D
Now, onto other important matters.... Items for the April 2008 St Jude Quilt Retreat!
There were more deliveries today!
There were 5 envelopes - some were bigger than others.
This is from Quilting Made Easy which is the company that makes Borders on a Roll. I saw that Jen had used this at one time to put some really cool borders on a quilt for her Granma so I made sure that I included them when I sent my letters for donation requests. They sent a $10 gift certificate and a catalog. I had not looked at their products and I am hoping that I get this! even if I don't, I think that I will be ordering something because the borders they show look so cool!
Fons and Porter sent a free 1-year sub scription to their Love of Quilting Magazine. They sent one last year, also, and it's what made me order a subscription. :)
Gathering Friends is a quilt shop that also puts out patterns and books. I think that I got their name from a book at a local quilt shop. They sent two of their books and after looking through them, there are definitely quilts that I could make from each. They are very cute!
And when I stopped at Aunt Ruth's Scrapbasket to pick up my prize, the owner gave me a couple of packs of fabric for kid sized quilts. The fabric is very cute. And Aunt Ruth's is becoming one of my favorite shops in the area. Corey just bought the store in December and I have only been in about 4 times and she already knows my name and welcomes me by name. Quite a change! (Note: the website hasn't been updated in about a year, but Corey said that it is on her list to be doing that and newsletters. But you can get their store information from the site.)
Now, I did get a response from a company that will remain nameless. They denied my request for a donation and their reasoning was a little strange. They don't 'accept unsolicited donation requests.' They also give customer service contact information in case I have questions. I am guessing that I need to call and ask how I can get on the list to send a solicited donation request? Do companies send out letters asking people if they have donations that they need? Does this make sense to anyone?? And this is not a small potatoes company. This is a large, large company. Help?
