From the comments I received, it appears that many people like the idea of purchasing both paper and PDF patterns for various reasons. I must admit that I have both kinds, but I like the instant gratification that I receive when I purchase a PDF pattern or e-pattern over the web. I guess I'm just an "I want it now" kind of girl!
This week I will be offering a third book that has been donated by Martingale & Company. Thanks again to Martingale & Company for generously offering this book to me for these giveaways.
If you didn't participate in the previous week's draw, here are the details:
One book will be given away each week for the next five weeks; entries will begin on Monday each week. Entries will close at 11:59 p.m. each Friday. I will be drawing a winner for one book each week on Saturday, starting on November 20, 2010. You will need to enter each week to be eligible for that week's book draw. The entry conditions will vary each week, so be sure to read the details carefully before entering.
You will receive one entry for this week's draw for each of the following that you do:
1. Become a follower on my Chatterbox Quilts Chitchat blog - and advise me by leaving a comment on this post. Please sign up for posts by email on the right-hand side of the blog, not Google reader, to be eligible. (If you are already a subscriber, just advise me of this.)
2. Sign up for my Quilt Chatter newsletter by clicking on the top right-hand side of this blog and advise me by commenting on this post. (If you are already a subscriber, just advise me of this).
3. Tell me, by leaving a comment below, what you expect in a purchased pattern ie. complete step-by-step instructions or instructions where a general knowledge of quilting is already assumed; full-size templates or ones that you will re-size yourself, issues like this.
4. Tell me, by leaving a comment below, about your favourite holiday tradition.
You'll receive one entry for every one of the above things that you do - so that's a possible four entries.
You will need to do each of these separately - do not include all your information in one comment or that will only count as one entry. Be sure to comment on this post only so that you will be eligible for the draw. Also, make sure that I have a way to contact you; that your settings are not set to "no reply". I'd hate for you to be the winner, but not able to give the book to you as I can't contact you.
This contest is open to residents of Canada and the continental United States only; sorry no international entries.
This week I am offering "Country Threads Goes to Charm School" by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene. I reviewed this book in a previous blog post and was amazed at all the little projects that can be made from a charm pack. Since we're running out of time to make Christmas presents, the little projects in this book will allow you to whip up those last few. Use Christmas or holiday fabrics for any of these projects and you'll soon be done all your holiday creating. Break Your Bread, Don't Cut It or Wipe Your Feet would be especially suitable.
Please feel free to tell your friends about this opportunity so they'll have a chance to win a book as well. Don't forget to check back on December 11 to see if you've won this charming (sorry, couldn't resist!) book.
