Fun Happenings at QuiltShopGal

SewCalGal has officially moved to QuiltShopGal.com   I'm still learning Wordpress and have a lot of work to do to get everything looking and running like I want it too, but it is starting to feel like home.  The move, combined with the holidays, combined with two large contests that ended late 2014, along with a number of winners that declined their prize, has caused me to be late in getting some prizes shipped, but I'm hoping to have this all taken care of by the end of this week.  For those who have not yet received their prize, I do appreciate your patience and support.


Today, I'm back on SewCalGal as I wanted to share with you some things going on at QuiltShopGal and I hope you'll come check them out and even better if you decide to follow me in my new blog home.

GIVEAWAYS:  QuiltShopGal has a couple of giveaways going on this week, with more to be announced in January.  The page where I share insights on giveaways and contests has also migrated to: http://quiltshopgal.com/giveaways-and-contests/   BTW - You can find that page under the EVENTS tab, under the header at QuiltShopGal.  I'm now back trying to research and update this page at least twice a week, but you are also encouraged to add giveaways to the linky as you see them.

CREATIVE GOODNESS LINKY PARTIES: These weekly parties have been fun, with a variety of creative and inspirational projects being shared.  As promised, there periodically there will be surprise giveaways.  And 5 prizes were just randomly awarded to past participants, where prizes included a quilting book and 4 bundles of Valentine Theme creativity.  Any form, any theme of creativity is always welcome and now there are "optional" themes for the month.  Many are also sharing tips and tutorials, which is always appreciated.  You can always find links to the current linky party, as well as past parties from the main page for this event which is located under the EVENTS PAGE> #CREATIVEGOODNESS Weekly Linky Parties: http://quiltshopgal.com/creativegoodness-weekly-linky-parties/


2015 FREE-MOTION QUILTING CHALLENGE began on January lst, but monthly challenges will be released on the lst of every month.  Prizes will be randomly awarded to participants on a monthly basis. This is a great way to learn and improve your free-motion quilting skills.  You can always find links to current challenges, as well as other posts about this challenge on the main page for this event, which is located under the EVENTS PAGE > FREE-MOTION QUILTING > 2015 FMQ CHALLENGE:  http://quiltshopgal.com/2015-free-motion-quilting-challenge/


CHA MEGA SHOW 2015:  I have been attending the CHA/Craft and Hobby Trade Show and will be sharing insights shortly.  I also have some fun SWAG gifts, including books with #CreativeGoodness, that I'll be writing reviews on and hosting giveaways at QuiltShopGal.  Plus, I learned about some really cool new products that were launched at this show, which, of course, I'll be sharing.

I'm continuing to share insights about new products, events, designers, teachers, authors and more at QuiltShopGal.  Plus, I'm hoping to share more tutorials, free patterns, #kidfriendly projects and a variety of #CreativeGoodness, while still continuing to share insights for quilting, sewing and embroidery enthusiasts.  I sure hope you'll come visit me at QuiltShopGal and even better that you'll follow me in my new home. It just wouldn't be the same without you.
