Free The Quilt Show weekend

The weekend of Marc 15-17 The Quilt Show is offering free access
to all their previous shows including mine #713

Dear Quilting Friend

International Quilt Day is just around the corner, and as a featured artist on a past episode of The Quilt Show, ( I wanted to let you know about a gift that Alex and Ricky have put together for quilters around the world.   

Beginning on Friday, March 16 through Sunday, March 18, everyone who signs on to The Quilt Show will have free access to over 140 of their internet shows, including my episode #713.  You can watch the shows, check out the great tutorials, browse the gallery of over 19,900 member quilts, visit the forum for answers to the most burning quilt questions and lots, lots more. And if you missed my show, you can see it now.

You can also enter the TQS prize drawing with fantastic prizes from companies we know and love like Bernina, Gammill, Superior Threads, AccuQuilt, C&T Publishing, RJR Fabric, and Ricky and Alex will have gift baskets to give away too.  The grand prize is a new Bernina 550E sewing machine!

I wanted to make you aware of this amazing event so you can take advantage of everything this exciting weekend has to offer without leaving home and all for free. 

Don’t hesitate to share this email with your quilting friends, fellow guild members, social networking friends and local quilt shops so that they don’t miss out on this fun weekend.  And feel free to post an abbreviated version of the details on your Facebook page.  I want everyone to know about this amazing 3-day celebration of all things quilting.

So check in at on Friday, March 15, and enjoy the shows and exploring The Quilt Show website and all it has to offer!  

And I’d love to have you view my show, episode #713.

Times are Changing

After much thought, I have joined the 21st Century and given up
my land line phone number I have had since 1962 when I moved
to Modesto. Big leap for me to give this up as I ponder if people
will be able to find me! But I have email and a cell phone and a
studio phone. So... If you want to contact me, use my email address
and if you want to talk, I can give you my phone number. My studio
is in a mountain area where due to trees and hills, my cell does not work
up here. They promise soon we will have cell service but meanwhile,
I keep my phone off until I "go down the hill to the valley". You can
send me an email on this blog and I will answer asap. Yvonne
