Christmas Prize-ents!

Today is the day for giving away a lot of goodies! If you're not sure what that second word in the blog post title is, just pretend you're in the south (of the USA) and give it a good drawl...presents!

Many thanks to all of those who read and entered my giveaway! Many of you were so excited, you entered twice...thrice....or even four times. I guess I should have paid a little more attention to setting up my form to not accept duplicate entries and been clearer that this was a one entry per person contest. I did see a couple that looked like they had entered wrong and were just updating their entry. I deleted any that were clearly duplicates, to keep things fair.

Before I get to the random number generator, let me announce my winners from Craftsy! Yes, winners. They had 2 giveaways going on through this time one through the Craftsy Instructors' Blog Hop and another through their 12 Days of Christmas promotion. Craftsy winners are listed by their Craftsy user name so if you don't recognize yourself, don't worry, I've got your email and will be in touch soon.

Jan ("jfirstmat248351") won the blog hop giveaway and she's won a free class of her choice!

"Jane5" is a generous soul who won a free class by using one of my links to "Gift-any-Class" during the promotional period.

Now for the ruler goodness!

The first prize pack is for a Westalee ruler foot starter set in the winner's choice of shank height from my store! Renata is the winner.

The second price pack is 3 rulers (also by Westalee) from my shop! Debbie will get these rulers before Christmas!
In case you are wondering, the rulers in the giveaway are the Westalee 12 inch curves rulers #1 and #2 (I normally only carry #3) and the Westalee 8 inch arc, a very handy ruler. All are cut at 4.5mm but are easily used on low shank machines.

I'll be in touch soon via email for all of these winners.

This was my first time using Google Docs to accept entries and it was much more streamlined than checking a list of commentors (plus some readers have trouble leaving comments due to some Blogger issues). Despite having to remove 67 duplicate entries to bring the number down to 452 entries, I liked it. I'll know better next time.

Speaking of presents, how are your holiday preparations going? Whether it's Christmas, Hanukkah, celebrating the arrival of Santa Claus, or something else, most people are celebrating this time of year and I send you my best wishes for a fun, peaceful, meaningful time. As we prepare for Christmas, I might not blog quite as often in this next two weeks, though I've got quite a few things I want to share!

Eat a cookie for me!


  1. Thank You for running this 'Give-away', and for all that I have learned from you through your blog and now, Craftsy course. May I also wish you and all dear to you, health and happiness for the Yuletide and for the coming new year. :) Kathryn, London, UK

  2. Thank you so much for my free Craftsy class. I have just been looking at some, and this will be a hard choice. If you had a second class out yet there would be no problem with choosing. Merry Christmas and God Bless.

    1. Kim Brunner's class is a great follow up with ruler work as is Angela Walter's dot to dot class, or you could wait about 6-7 months...

  3. Congratulations, winners! And thank you, Amy, for this fun contest and for all you do to further enhance our quilting knowledge and enjoyment! I told a friend about your class, and yesterday her husband contacted me, looking for "the perfect quilting Christmas gift" for her. Apparently, she enjoyed the class and is now hooked as well! And so it grows... Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to you and your family!
