I've met the most wonderful people since I started quilting. A couple of years ago I received an email from Martine, a lady I'd never met, who lives in France. She belongs to a group of quilters who travel to shows all over the world (sounds like heaven to me!) and blog about their travels on www.quiltinusa.blogspot.ca. That year, they were attending the Sisters Quilt Show in Oregon and she emailed me to see if they could drop in at my place to see my quilts. Yes, yes! Quilters are always welcome here!
It was a magical afternoon for me, meeting these ladies from so far away and making new friends.
Much too soon, they waved goodbye and were off to explore other quilting destinations.
A few months later, my husband and I were able to visit Martine when we traveled to France.
I love how quilting brings people together from all over the world!
All this by way of introduction...Martine is offering a giveaway on her blog www.quiltinusa.blogspot.com, of a signed copy of my latest book, At Home with Country Quilts.
Don't worry if the blog is written in French--just use the Translate button to get the details. The draw is on July 17 so check it out soon!
And soon I'll be launching a book blog tour right here! Several of my quilting buddies will take turns reviewing my book and offering a signed copy as a giveaway. Each week, I'll announce who the next blogger will be. You'll have a chance to win each week, if you're a follower of my blog and go to that week's site and leave a comment. So stay tuned--it's happening very soon!
