NC Quilt Symposium Gift Baskets


With the NC Quilt Symposium so close by, I thought I’d make up some gift baskets to use as door prizes for the guests.  Naturally, I am hoping they will come visit my blog.  There were a couple of retailers that graciously provided some of the goodies. If you come to Symposium, you might win one of these!  All of the baskets contain a Thread Therapy DVD from Superior Threads.

This one has needles, thread and patterns donated by me, along with a fabric pack from Sew Much Fun! Quilt Shop.

This basket has a hilarious book Goddess of the Last Minute, written by a quilter, along with some threads from me.   Sew Much Fun! donated a fabric fat quarter pack, and Superior Threads provided a Thread Therapy DVD.

Gift Basket 2

This one has patterns, needles and a set of ombre fabric fat quarters from me, and a large cone of quilting thread donated by Long Creek Mills.

Gift Basket 4

The last basket contains a Machine Quilting book, patterns and fabric from me, along with another large cone of quilting thread from Long Creek Mills.

Gift Basket 5

I found a deal on a few quilting books, so those will be donated for door prizes too.

Are you coming to Symposium?  If you are, I might see you there.  I am taking EQ7 classes, and a longarm class.  I’ll be at the show every day admiring the quilts in the show and visiting the vendors.  I thought it would be fun to also give away a prize for today’s post, so I’ll do that!  Leave a comment on this post by May 7 for a chance to win a copy of the Stars Unlimited book!  Winner will be selected at random on Friday May 8.  I usually email everyone that comments, but forgive me if I cannot do that with a giveaway post.
