Yes 24 more sleeps....YEP!
( her name btw Tobe..as in to bee a quilter)
Wendy came up with that...
For the past couple weeks, when I came up with this
idea to bring WANTOBE QUILTERS together along
with all these Sponsors...note our sponsor list is growing....
They are indeed the GREATEST, LATEST, BEST.....
I just knew this would spell great opportunities for sew many.
Each SATURDAY leading up to August 1st- I will share a bit more with you...
You have read about the gathering of names of Wantobe Quilters,
what is all that about?
Well let me tell you...Once the campaign begins on August 1st....
All the names, emails and phone numbers you collect,
will be sent to me in a personal email. ( email@example.com)
I will in turn set up a database that will have your name along
with all those you have on your list...let's pretend you have 5 names...
your name is Betty... you have 5 Wantobe Quilters ...
Your name will be added to all 5 of those names..
IF any of YOUR people win anything, you also win something.
That name will be published the day of the DRAW,
if she or he happens to be an experienced QUILTER and not a Wantobe Quilter,
( and someone will tell me, there is no doubt about that)
they will be disqualified right there and then .....
I do believe 99% of people are very honest, and that most
people believe in karma. What goes around comes around.
Sew I am not worried about qualifying the winners.
I just know they will be WANTOBE Quilters...
I have very sophisticated software that matches, email
addresses with ISP's...ever since I began managing this blog,
I have never had any problem with those who won anything
as far as legitimacy...Sew please do not worry about that..
I am on it!
Now for those of you who have blogs and you would like
to appeal to your own followers/friends. Next Saturday
I will supply you with a text that you can put on your blog
that states, they will not be able to come to this blog ( stash) to enter
in a giveaway...They will have to locate our list of bloggers on the side
bar.... all those who have the
WANTOBE QUILTER button on their blog ... I will list you here...
Any visitors who want to enter will be asked to look at the list
on the side bar..( not there yet) and they will be asked to give you
their name and email and phone number...
( this will all be clearer as we get closer to the launch date...)
( please let me know with a comment who has this button already on your blog
as I will be compiling a list) and adding it this week...
Ahhh I can hear you...what if the same person, registers
their name with all the bloggers..??? No problem, their name
will only be counted once, whoever submitted that name first..
My software will tell me their name is already registered with BETTY .lol...
So if you are Helen, and you have the same name...that name will not be registered again.
How does that sound?
What else can I share with you....??????
mmmmmmm I hear Nancy Zieman will be popping over for a guest
post, ohhhh and Eleanor Burns too I hear....and. just today I heard from Alex Anderson
she too will be joining us and I think some guy name Ty, .......oh I think that is enough
excitement for today....Ü
See this button on the side bar...any related topics that are published
at my own personal blog- Sew I quilt.... will be found here...
I have been doing sneak peaks on my blog of some of the giveaways...
Ohhhhh yes, I understand that BERNINA, PFAFF and a BABY LOCK
willl be giving us their GREATEST, LATEST BEST beginner machines...
to some winners....And they are very very nice...!
For anyone interested in contacting a LQS, please connect with me
I have something that you can print off and give them that will
certainly benefit both of you...They will collect names
and get an idea how many wantobe quilters are in their area, sew they
can schedule new classes for them... and you pick up those names
to enter this campaign.
24 more sleeps...
p.s.....as I will be compiling a top list of reasons
why someone should quilt for next SATURDAY...
I would certainly like to hear why you QUILT?
What has it done for YOU?
just added them here ok...thanks..
What constitutes someone as a WANTOBE QUILTER..?
They do not have a machine, tools, notions, stash as in fabric...
They may have made a quilt with a MOM, sister, friend, niece, aunt, grandma,
but they DO NOT HAVE THEIR OWN TOOLS!
Hope that helps?
p.s. again...the list that will be on the blog roll
will change every day....just sew you know
I really have thought of everything...
There will be no WHINING in this CAMPAIGN.
You will have to trust me that I have a plan for all
who participate that there will be many many many chances..
'nough said lol
