GIVEAWAY AND NEW BLOG SITE?

GIVEAWAY WINNER!!!

I still have not heard from Tracey who entered my giveaway.  I will pick another name as of Thursday, so if you know Tracey please let her know she needs to contact me so I can get her gift out to her.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT READ THIS PART OF MY PAST BLOG...

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
What do you think about a community blog to help us find those hard-to-find and out-of-print charts?

Oftentimes one of us has a chart that someone is desperately looking for or we know where it can be found. For instance, several months ago I went to Shepherd's Bush and found 9 (nine) Blackbird Designs, Quaker Garden charts at regular price, and they were going for a fortune on ebay.

It could be helpful to have a blog set up to help others find what they are looking for. Let's face it...We are all faced with that problem from time-to-time.
If one of us runs across a good sale or clearance we can post it for all. Do you know of a store closing? Let's help the store owner clear out his/her inventory. I had one close here in my own community recently when the store owner became very ill. Then she has to figure out what to do with the rest of the inventory. That is another job itself. What about other items that can be purchased at a great price for scrapbooking, quilting, etc. We are a community of really nice people and it would be great to be able to help one another out.

There is probably a site out there already, (I am always a day late!) but I am going to pursue this.
Now I just need a catchy name for it... Any suggestions?

I hope you are all getting some amazing stitching done on this holiday weekend.

  7. I think it's a great idea! I know I've been out there looking for discontinued patterns several times. It would be nice to have a central location to point us in the right direction.
