Giveaway Day!

 






Welcome Giveaway Day participants! My name is Merrilee.  I am primarily a quilter, but recently I took a break from quilting and sewed this cute apron.  The pattern is by Atkinson Designs and is called "Mom and Me Apron." 





The apron is available in three different sizes (toddler, child, and adult).  Kits for this apron are available in all three sizes at my quilt shop, Stitchin' It Up Quilt Shop.  Hope you will take some time to stop over at my online quilt shop and look at the fabrics, patterns, and other quilt kits I have available.


My giveaway is a $25 gift certificate to Stitchin' It Up Quilt Shop which you can use to purchase an apron kit or anything else available in the shop.  This giveaway is open internationally.  Winner will be picked at random from the comments left and notified by e-mail.  Please be sure to leave me a way in your comments to contact you if you are a no-reply blogger.  Giveaway will be open until Friday, May 16 at 7:00 p.m. CST.  

For a chance to win:
1.  Please leave a comment letting me know your favorite craft (i.e. quilting, sewing, scrapbooking, knitting, embroidery, etc.)
2.  For a second chance at the giveaway, follow my blog (if you aren't already a follower) and leave me a comment telling me how you are following (i.e. Bloglovin', e-mail, Google Friend Connect, etc.).  There are places along the left side of my blog to enter your information to become a follower.
3.  For a third chance, visit my quilt shop website and sign up for my newsletter (signup available on bottom right of home page).  Leave me a comment letting me know you have done this.
