Welcome to the 2013 Golden Quilter Awards Ceremony



This is the event we've all been waiting for.

First, I want to recognize and thank the sponsors for the 2013 Golden Quilter Awards Ceremony.  For a complete list of prizes, as well as more info on the annual Golden Quilter Awards, visit the main page for this event by clicking on a tab, under the blog header, labeled "Golden Quilter Awards".

And, I want to congratulate all of the nominees as they are appreciated by quilters from all over the world who took time to nominate them, in honor of their contributions to our world of quilting.  A complete list of all the nominees can be found at: http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/2013/02/2013-golden-quilter-awards-final.html

SewCalGal is the host for this annual event. As such, she is unable to nominate, nor vote.  But, along with the help of some wonderful PR Angels, a major effort is made to ensure WW quilters are given the opportunity to nominate and vote in this event, as well as give recognition to all nominees and the ultimate winners!

Padsworth (Lilypad Quilting) created a fun video to announce the winners of the 2013 Golden Quilter Awards.


The Ceremony Video can also be viewed directly via Youtube.

I have a suggestion for future award contests, and that is that previous winners are not eligible to win again - at least for one or two years. Just a thought.

Muttmomkay said...

I absolutely loved the video. I thought the frog was smashing and in very good taste. It was elegant and yet fun. I was so proud of all the people who were nominated... I just have to say that Bonnie Hunter is just so energetic and so approachable and out there that she is truly deserving of the sweep. However, that is not to negate the huge impact of many of the other nominees who are also very wonderful and very much in our lives. Thank you all and we love you all. Congrats to all the winners and the nominees - you deserve our thanks and recognition.

I think I need some of that 'pond water' to soak in now. What a cute presentation (even if I'm late watching it).

Patchwork said...

Is there a link to the voting results?

CathyQuilts said...

I'd prefer to just see a list of winners, I'm just not one to sit and watch a video of which nearly half is introduction. Not to mention the music hurt my ears.
I'm not disliking the video maker's talents, please don't think that, I'm not out to hurt her feelings.
I like to keep things simple and see a list that should take about 30 seconds to view.
