First, I want to remind everyone that voting for your favorite nominees is open  through Saturday, March 31st.   If you haven't yet taken time to vote, please click here and submit your vote.  Your vote counts and quilters from all over the world are invited to vote.

Mark your calendar as on Tuesday, April 3rd the 2012 Golden Quilter Award Winners will be announced.  After the ceremony, there will be a big party and sponsors have donated some wonderful prizes.  So, as to not take away of the excitement for the 2012 Golden Quilter Award winners, winners of the sponsored prizes will be announced on Wednesday, April 4th.    Keep reading and you'll learn more on how these winners are selected.  But, to clarify, the Golden Quilter Award Winners get to claim bragging rights and sponsored prizes are given to PR Angels, those that took time to nominate and to those that take time to vote for their favorite nominees! 

Thank you
 to the Sponsors of the
2012 Golden Quilters Awards

and a 5" charm square pack.

With 19 prizes, six prizes will be awarded to PR Angels, six to those that helped with nominations and 7 to those that took time to vote. 

And special thanks to Zoomerang, who has sponsored this event and provided use of their robust survey tool to help support processing of the nominations in a confidential and efficient manner, and for the subsequent round of voting for your favorite nominees, to identify the ultimate winners of the 2012 Golden Quilter Awards.

Prizes, donated by generous sponsors, will be given to recognize the PR Angels, those that submitted nominations, and those that took time to vote.  To clarify, if you participated in one or more of these categories your name has been entered.  Sponsors have donated some wonderful prizes and winners will randomly be selected from the pool of PR Angels, Nominating Committee (anyone that submitted a nomination) and Voting Committee (anyone that voted).  Winners of this SWAG will be announced on Wednesday, April 4th

Thank you to everyone that clicks on the AdChoices advertisements as this helps to generate funds to offset shipping sponsored prizes to winners, anywhere in the world.   

Don't forget to go vote.
