Thank you to our Q3 FAL Sponsors!

Today I want to thank the Q3 Finish-A-Long sponsors. One of the lovely parts of the on-line quilting community is the generosity of the on-line quilting retailers who are willing and able to support on-line events like the FAL with prizes.

First I will remind you that each finish you link from your Q3 list becomes an entry into the randomly chosen draw for each of the following prizes, so get your finishes linked up before midnight October 7. If you are almost done one last finish for Q3, these prizes might give you just that extra incentive to finish it off.

Here are our wonderful Q3 sponsors:

Quilter in The Gap
Surprise Package from Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap

£25 Gift Certificate from Tikki London

Texty Fabric Bundle from Sew me a Song

There are some things I wanted to share about these sponsors:

  • I have shopped at all of these shops (yup, I am an experienced shopper) and each of them is lovely to deal with - they have excellent products and customer service.
  • All of them are happy to ship to me in Canada and to you wherever you are.
  • Each of them would love you to take a few minutes to visit their on-line shops (just click the buttons above) and take a look around. While you are there, please consider taking a minute to send them an email thanking them for their support of the FAL.

And get your Q4 lists ready, as I am so pleased to report that each and every one of these sponsors has generously agreed to be here supporting us for Q4 too - and I even have a couple more sponsors to add to our list for the beginning of Q4. (If you would also like to sponsor Q4 of the FAL, please email me at shecanquilt [at] gmail [dot]com.)

One more time, here is the upcoming FAL schedule:
  • October 1 - 7 -  Q3 tutorials will run on this blog.
  • October 7 -     The Q3 post quarter link up closes at midnight, MST.
  • October 8 -     The Q4 pre-quarter link up opens - please post your Q4 list.
  • October 15 -    The Q4 pre-quarter link closes at midnight, MST.

  • January 8 -     The Q4 post quarter link closes.

Go here to link up your Q3 finishes, I will be checking them all (every single one - I love seeing all your finishes) out and commenting when I can. Do take a minute to visit some of the other finishes, and remember to leave a comment or two as well, we all love comments.

There are more tutorials for Friday, Saturday and Sunday - I sure love the tutorial week of the FAL, I hope you do too.
