Are you ready?

Monday is August 1st and you know what that means?  The Wantobe Quilter Campaign at StashManicure Blog begins.  I know how many of you reply to my posts when I do a giveaway.  I even remember two years ago when I did a month of giveaways (I was nuts then :) all the comments that came into the IHAN blog.  StashManicure Blog is having THREE MONTHS of giveaways...YES  THREE MONTHS.  Madam Samm is going to be swamped-flooded-monsooned with e-mails. 

I've been over and checked out the sponsor list and I'm telling you this is the Big One....

                                                  you better tell Elizabeth that Fred is on his way.

Sewing machines....not 1,  not 2, not 3, but 4.....yes FOUR sewing machines will be given away.  Fabric?  Hundreds of yards of fabric and  tons of books.  So many of my favorite companies are participating so you know the prizes are going to be terrific!!!   You know I'm excited because Famore Cutlery (my favorite Scissor Man) is a sponsor as well as Creative Grids Rulers, my favorite Irons by Reliable (the best iron I've ever used), Pins, and Notions from Clover, Notions from The Grace Company, Martingale sent books..oh and Lady Eleanor Burns (Quilt In A Day), Ms. Joan Hawley (Lazy Girl Designs) and  Aurifil Threads.......I'm telling ya folks...this is definitely THE BIG ONE :)  That isn't even a complete list....those are just the sponsors I can recall right now there are tons more.  Oh yeah...and IHAN too :)

So...if you don't own a sewing machine and you don't have a stash of are a Wantobe Quilter.  Ya need someone to submit your name, phone number and e-mail addy to Madam Samm in order to participate.  That's where I come in :)  If you or someone you know is a Wantobe Quilter please send me an e-mail at with the person's full name, e-mail and phone number.  The Wantobe Quilter will not be contacted and their information will not be used for solicitation....just for this  giveaway :)

Once the Wantobe Quilter's name has been submitted they need to visit StashManicure Blog and leave comments on the posts and say who sent my case it would be Kelly Jackson :)  

What are you waiting for?  Call every person you know who have an interest in becoming a quilter and get on the bandwagon....this is going to be so much fun.



  1. Don't forget everyone else gets to comment on Tues & Thurs and the already quilters get to win on those days too!!! So every one gets a chance to win!!! PS, she has THOUSANDS of yards of fabric!!!

  2. I am hyperventilating, just thinking about this! Woo hoo!

  3. Kelly, you really dated yourself with that Elizabeth statement and I have no idea what you're referring to :). Oh, that's right you probably saw it on Nick at night or someplace like that.

  4. Cool! I sent in a friend who wants to be a quilter. He has sewn some basic straight seams for me but is lacking sewing machine and supplies!

  5. I saw this earlier in the month from Barb on facebook, and didn't check it out. Wish I would have....I'm on board, but a little late. Looks like it's going to be fun, bring back some nightmares for ya??? lol!!

  6. awts... i wish i knew someone who'd send my name.. been wanting to make this project but didn't have the budget for it.. sewing machines and all.. this could've been the answer. gluck! =D

  7. Diane S says what a fun idea. I am always looking for quilting bloggers.

  8. I went to visit someone's blog, commented and think I am to tell you. Sometimes I go wandering and may have this time

  9. This looks like a fun giveaway!! I was sent to your site from the Lazy Girl Blog. I will subscribe as this looks like a site I would like.


  10. Just read about this on the Lazy Girl Blog - Woo Hoo! Sounds like fun. :-)

  11. I'm confused where to leave comments where you said ( StashManicure Blog and leave comments on the posts and say who sent my case it would be Kelly Jackson :) I went to this site but can't find a comment section??? what am i missing help? thanks!

  12. Whoohooooooo! I just hop all over the place!!!! sewing machines and fabrics! sounds like a winner to me!

  13. I just came here from Lazy Girl Blog. I am a bit confused about how to enter the 3 months of give-aways. I'm already a quilter, so can't claim to be a Wantobe!
