Spring Cleaning - Massive giveaway day?

I have been doing a bit of spring cleaning and finding some things that I know I can part with. Some old magazines and some bags that I donated for a sale that I got back when they didn't sell. Perhaps some old patterns and just maybe some fabric...

As I was moving things around and the pile of things to go started growing, it got me thinking that I have not done a giveaway on the blog in a long time and that I should probably take action to correct that issue.

And that got me to thinking... maybe there are some other bloggers who could be in the same position with some items that they have outgrown or that they won't use any more. What if I coordinated an online giveaway? A day where a group of bloggers posted giveaways, linked their giveaway posts to my blog and then bloggers from all over could have many chances to win something special.

At this point, I am just trying to see if there is any interest from other bloggers to participate and have a giveaway on their blogs. I am contemplating a separate giveaway for the bloggers who participate and maybe a bonus of quilting services if the participating bloggers reaches a certain number.

Any thoughts? Fantastic idea? Something to totally scrap?

Maxie thinks it sounds promising, but he'd like to sleep on the idea for a bit.

Keep us posted on your thoughts. You might want to check the scheduled giveaway times from Sew Mama Sew and Quilting Gallery, as they host large giveaway parties periodically.

Oh nice idea. Count me in. I have some things already pulled out that I was going to give away (patterns, fabric and a few magazines) and never got around to doing it.

Sounds like a great idea!! I'm sure we all have some stuff we could get rid of.
