Of all the great reasons to celebrate having sponsors for a blog, the number one would be offering giveaways to your readers. With that said, I want to introduce you all to one of my wonderful sponsors Elisa of Elisa's Backporch Design. Elisa has a wonderful reason to celebrate too. She just had a new grandbaby born! Congratulations Elisa!
To honor the occasion she wants to give away $100 in merchandise from her shop. WOW! That's very generous of you Elisa.
I had the chance to speak with Elisa recently and she offered the following information about her company:
"I provide quilters with unique tools and methods for creating slightly non-traditional quilts. Quilting should be fun and rewarding. So when I see an area that has unrealized potential for inspiring those who enjoy quilting, I create templates, books, rulers and patterns to excite interest in those areas. By using my curve templates and sewing instructions, I have helped people feel confident in their ability to create beautiful drunkards path quilts. My newest ruler, Square Me Up, gives speed and accuracy when creating quilts using half square triangles. What makes me unique is that I create ease in areas of quilting that would otherwise be frustrating or a stumbling block. Helping quilters learn new techniques and grow in their love of quilting is my passion. See the many video tutorials on my website and blog."
I highly recommend you wander over to Elisa's shop and take a look at the patterns she has to offer (not to mention the GORGEOUS quilts on the covers).
She's been filmed for Quilter's TV, QNN, Kaye's Quilting Friends and America Quilts Creatively, and has also had some of her patterns in several magazines: including Asian Fabric and Quilter's World. Along with creating easy to use templates, Elisa has also authored several quilting books.
Thanks for sharing some information about your company with us Elisa. For more information you can visit Elisa's blog here: http://blog.backporchdesign.com
