Ready, Set, SEW!!!!!

Just like we mentioned a few weeks ago, we are now preparing for our first giveaway. Ours won't be nearly as exciting as Dana's over at the Old Red Barn Co., but we aim to please. We are giving a free quilting service away. This will be an edge to edge quilt, any size, any pattern that we have in our pattern library. That's right folks! So get those sewing machines out of the closet and dust them off. Sew up your favorite pattern and get it ready to send to us, 'cause you could be the lucky winner. We will run the giveaway for two weeks. All you have to do is post a comment. At the end of two weeks, we will randomly draw for the winner. Sound like a good idea to you? Well, don't just sit there in front of your computer (make your post)--start sewing!







Look at some of our other work for McCalls Quick Quilts and SuzGuz Designs:

Nature’s Gifts April/May 2009 Issue Quick Quilts‏

Moderne Bliss February/March 2009 Issue Quick Quilts‏

I do want to give the Susan Guzman from SuzGuz Designs a special Thanks!!!

Russ
