It is now officially the busiest month of the year. And Christmas will soon be here!
I wanted to share with you all - an update of the exciting plans in the works - going on here at Sew Fresh Quilts!
GIVEAWAYS - Those of you who have been following my blog are well aware of how familiar I am with that wonderful feeling you get from winning fabric. In November I had my own very first Giveaway celebration. I was pleasantly surprised with the number of entries and happy to meet so many new friends! The wonderful feeling of GIVING away that fabric even surpassed the joy of winning fabric. So I have been hard at work soliciting sponsors for Giveaways to take place during the coming months.
BLOGIVERSARY - Sew Fresh Quilts was begun on Christmas Eve 2012. My very first post outlined the various plans I had. And was listed in a New Year's Resolution style. I will be making a special anniversary post this December 24th.
HOSTING TGIFF - December 27th will be my first experience as a Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday hostess! I do so hope to see you here for that exciting event. And encourage you all to link up your finishes for an end of the year celebration!
NEW LINKY PARTY - There is a NEW Linky Party beginning in January 2014......
Let's Bee Social! is a Sew-Weet new weekly linky party for quilting bloggers. A new blog post each Wednesday will allow you to add your own link to the Let's Bee Social linky party post.
Read more about the new linky by clicking on the page tab I have added beneath my blog header or by clicking on this link. And please add the linky button, found at the top of the right sidebar, to your blog to help spread the word!
SPONSORS - You may have noticed the glaringly obvious new sponsor and affiliate link banners added to the sidebars on the Sew Fresh Quilts blog. I apologize if any of you find these offensive. I have provided a title at the head of these banners, to make it clear that they are either Sponsors or Affiliates. And I wanted to make it very clear that Sponsors and Affiliates are two very different entities. My new sponsors are generous donors who are supporting the upcoming giveaways with donations of fabric to be won. Through our combined efforts, we wish to provide a fun event with a chance for some lucky winner to receive a thrill in the mail. I have added a new page tab beneath the header entitled Sponsors. It is here that you can read more about my Sponsors and Affiliates.
AFFILIATES - Affiliate links and banners are a recent addition to the Sew Fresh Quilts blog. I would like to point out that the meager income gained from displaying these banners, and the occasional postings promoting the services they offer, is in support of this blog. Monies raised will be used to cover the postal expenses during giveaways and those incurred when shipping finished quilts supplied to the many charity efforts I promote. You can read more about those charities by clicking on the tab entitled Quilts 4 a Cause.
Thank you all for following along AND for your continued support and encouragement!
I am looking forward to growing my social circle in the online quilting community in the coming new year and hope you will be joining me on my journey!
Keep On Quilting On!
