QTMbloghoplogoToday we launch our very first blog hop! We have a stellar list of blogs (see list below) to help us raise awareness of our annual fundraising event, Quilters Take Manhattan (QTM) and the Quilt Alliance mission.

To win a QTM Moda Home Ticket via this blog, please leave a comment about why you’d like to win. We’ll pick a winner at midnight tonight (9/5 at 12pm EDT) and post it at the close of the Hop. (Other hosts will give instructions on how to win in their giveaway.)

Also visit today for your chance to win:

Value of $35 ($30 for QA members). Winners of the Moda Home Ticket will receive by mail in late September a QTM Goody Bag, packed with samples and treats from all of our sponsors, and a chance to win select door prizes. Home Ticket holders will also receive priority access to online video of our Sunday with Sponsors event (sent via email link 2 weeks after event). Please note: this year’s Home Ticket will not include footage of QTM lectures and interviews due to the prohibitive cost. Home Ticket holders play an important role in supporting the work of the Alliance–thank you!

Drawings are open to all, but international winners are responsible for any customs fees that may be charged when shipment enters their country.
