Quilters Take Manhattan Blog Hop Starts Monday

QTMbloghoplogoNext week we launch our very first blog hop! We are thrilled to have the leadership of Quilt Alliance member and volunteer Chris Dodsley @made by ChrissieD on this venture, as we set out to raise awareness of our annual fundraising event, Quilters Take Manhattan (QTM) and the Quilt Alliance mission. Our QTM Blog Hop will include 18 different stops (see list and schedule below–you’ll be blown away by this stellar list!), including our own blog (Monday, Sept. 5). Visit any (and all) of the blogs on their day and you’ll have a chance to win a QTM Moda Home Ticket. Each host will give instructions on how to win in their giveaway.

Visit the QTM Blog Hop page for full details on how to participate.

Value of $35 ($30 for QA members). Winners of the Moda Home Ticket will receive 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.
