Important $1,000 Giveaway Update

giveaway updateI just wanted to let everyone know that the new $1,000 Fabric.com Giveaway is well underway.  However, there was a problem with the “Tell Us What You'd Make With This” option to enter with a comment on the page.  Unfortunately, only a small portion of the comments that readers wrote actually made it to the site.  If you entered the contest this way, you will have to re-do your entry.  Don't worry, it's free and I've updated the fabric selection to make it a bit more interesting.

Go to the Giveaway

We received a lot of positive feedback, so you may have noticed that we moved our hosting to an even larger web host recently.  The site is a lot faster, particularly at busy times like Sunday after the weekly newsletter goes out when many, many readers are on the site.  However, in the process of moving to the new server, the plugin that scans our comments for spam got disconnected, so most reader comments simply didn't make it to the site.  It's all fixed now and thanks to reader, Linda L., for pointing this out.

This actually applies to all reader comments on the site for all the other articles too, not just the contest comments –so if you left an important question but don't see it appear on the page, you may have to re-enter it.  We're really sorry about this, but in complex systems, these sorts of things sometimes happen.

Good luck to everyone in the contest!

  17. Dee Joyce says:

    Not sure what I would do as I am relatively new to the quilting world… but I saw a really large and beautiful tote bag when one of the attendees brought hers to a huge tent sale here in NH. It would be great to have a bag that large for all of my goodies that I collect when at that sale. I love scraps. I started collecting them years ago because I wanted to learn how to make a cathedral window quilt. While I probably have enough scraps, I know I will be attending the tent sale next year, so to make a bag would be fabulous….
