Giveaway Announcement - Part 1


The lovely Carolyn from AccuQuilt emailed me recently to say what a fan her company was of my blog. Can you believe that? I was totally shocked and surprised to see a message from them in my inbox. I've been enthusiastic of their machine since it was released. Needless to say, her message made my day.

I immediately called Carolyn as the note requested and boy did I get some great news for you!

Carolyn wants to offer me a GO! Cutter to GIVE AWAY to my readers! Isn't that great?!?!



I love my AccuQuilt cutter and was so happy to hear that I get the chance to give one away to you guys. The GO! is a great tool I feel every quilter should have in their studio arsenal. Whether you are looking for something new to spark interest in your hobby again or don't have a lot of time to spend quilting, the GO! is a universal solution great for busy quilters and crafters.

The majority of problems with my quilting seem to develop around cutting mistakes. The GO! helps me by creating accurate and consistent cuts every time. I can cut up to 6 layers of fabric at a time and cut an entire quilt 90% faster than using a rotary cutter!

In a few weeks I'm going to show you how I made a quilt using my AccuQuilt GO! machine and give one away right here on my blog to one lucky reader! Exciting, right? Well, I'll also be giving away prize packs of fabric and notions that were donated by my readers too! There will be one grand prize winner (the lucky duck) for the GO! cutter and many runners up. How exciting!

I'll leave you with this AccuQuilt video explaining how easy it is to use their revolutionary machine.



Happy quilting,

  1. I am soooo excited at your offering a chance to win a Go! My mother wants me to win one (for her). She is almost 80 and loves quilting. Guess have to wait for a few weeks to enter.

  3. That is just so wonderful, I too love reading your blog and enjoy the info you give.
    The Go cutter has been on my list and I have seen one here on Australia and it would be a dream to own one.
    There is so much fabric in my cupboards and it would mean quick accurate cutting and I could finish some more quilts and give some more away. Nothing like seeing a happy smile when you give a quilt.
    Happy stitching
