International Quilting Day

Tomorrow, Saturday March 16th is International Quilting Day and Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims,


hosts of The Quilt Show, want quilters, sewers and crafters everywhere to help them celebrate International Quilting Day by seeing what's going on in today's quilting world.  

Alex and Ricky will be opening up free access to over 140 of their shows from their Quilt Show website beginning today, March 15, through Sunday, March 17 and there will be terrific prizes from companies that we know and love like Bernina, Gammill, Superior Threads, AccuQuilt, C&T Publishing and RJR Fabric.  

They will have gift baskets to give away too and the grand prize is a new Bernina 550QE sewing machine!


I'm planning to take some time this weekend to visit their website, watch a couple of shows and of course, enter the contests for a chance to win some or all or the wonderful prizes!  *wink*  Oh, and while I'm watching, I'll be basting more hexies for my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.

Care to join me?

thanks for posting this. I joined them when they first started their site-enjoyed the videos, but after the first year their subscription was just too expensive for me.
thanks for letting us know about all the giveaways too Kathy

I received an email from them asking me to post too...I forgot as I just posted what I'm working on. Oh well...I'm sure word will get spread.

LOVE your header? Is it NEW? Did I miss that before? My blog could use some serious updating...I've been so lazy to take the time and do it.

Really, thanks for the heads-up, Kaaren.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if one of us does win!!!!
Happy Spring Hugs

I have plans to watch some too. I got my name in the draw for the Bernina. That would be so wonderful to win. They have a great membership deal on that I purchased a couple of weeks ago. I got this year, last year and one other year of my choice for $37.95. Now I need to find time to watch all those shows.

Thanks so much for the information. I knew it was quilting day and opted to do just that but I didn't know about the Quilt show. Guess Ill be watching a few shows.
