Congratulations to #81 Regena Brennan who won the Quilting Designs: The Quiltmaker Collection Vol. 6 CD donated by The Electric Quilt Company in last week’s give-away.
While I don’t normally allow any restrictions on give-aways, I hope you’ll understand for this one. This week’s Friday Give-Away is a one-year subscription to Canada’s very own, soon-to-be-released, quilting magazine, Quilter’s Connection Magazine. See below for further details on how you can enter. The contest is open to Canadian residents only.
Aside from being super-excited that Canada’s getting it’s own quilting magazine (yes, I realize CQA has one for members only), I’ve written my first-ever article for it entitled, The Virtual Quilting Bee: How quilters connect online.
While I’ve written and edited content for many, many years, this will be my first time actually published. My younger sister is a journalist by trade, and I never really understood the excitement of seeing one’s name in print. Now I do. You can bet I’ll be downstairs waiting to get the mail early every morning once it hits the post. I suppose I should warn my postman so he doesn’t think I’ve taken to stalking him.
Quilter’s Connection Magazine is Canada’s new quilting magazine. Published quarterly, Quilter’s Connection provides quilters with a connection to the rest of the quilting community across Canada. A magazine dedicated to those in the quilting community, written for quilters, by quilters, it is the source for all things related to quilting in Canada.
The magazine entertains Canadian quilters with news and reviews, projects, heartwarming and motivational stories about quilters and their achievements, quilting tips, and techniques – content to inspire the quilter in everyone.
For the Quilting Gallery’s Friday Give-Away, Quilter’s Connection Magazine is giving away a one-year subscription to one lucky reader! You will receive four issues of the magazine, full of great projects and information for quilters, beginning with our inaugural issue that comes out in September, 2009.
To enter the contest to win a free subscription, leave a comment below telling us what sort of things you’d love to see in the new magazine. Please also include your city and province or territory. Now’s a great opportunity to have your say in the future direction of this magazine.
But wait, there’s more… three lucky winners who subscribe to the Quilter’s Connection email newsletter between August 7th to August 14th, will receive a free copy of the first issue. Be sure to click this newsletter link, which will automatically open a new email for you to send to subscribe. (Keep the Quilting Gallery in the subject line to be eligible.)
The contest is open to Canadian residents only; however, American and international subscriptions are available. Thank you to my international friends; regular Friday Give-Aways open to all site visitors will resume next week.
UPDATE: Please include your city and province/territory to be eligible. Thanks!
