January Giveaway

This month's giveaway will be a totally unrelated miscellany of 12 new and/or gently-used charts forming what I suppose can only be called a mystery grab bag. That will give the recipient one chart for each month of 2010. What with last month's hectic schedule, I have been unable to come up with anything more creative.

The usual conditions will apply:
-- open to all stitchers
-- leave a comment below as to why you are interested in the giveaway
-- include an e-mail address in your post if clicking on your name will not lead me to an e-mail link
-- a winner will be selected on the 10th of the month and informed by e-mail
-- winners are asked to commit to PIF charts to other stitchers through message boards, guilds or stitching groups or to donate the charts to a women's shelter or prison, a nursing home or some other venue where a stitcher would enjoy them
Thanks for visiting my blog and good luck to all who choose to enter.

Thanks for the drawing. I'd love to have the opportunity to win and see if there are any designs in there I've been looking for. I'll be sure to pass them along after finishing with them.

Happy New Year!

Surprises are always fun and getting a surprise bag of unknown charts would be especially fun. Maybe it would be fun to just take out one each month (but who could wait that long?). I will find a good place to pass the charts on after I am done.

It has been a very long time since I have won a contest. Im just now getting back into my stitching mojo after about a year and a half break. I will pass the charts on to the ladies at a nursing home I frequent. Thank you for the chance! Happy New Year.

Hi Riona, I'd like to enter this contest because I stitch for 5 different charities, Quilts for Breast Cancer, Quilts for Older Children and Adults, Love Quilts USA & Brazil and also Cole's Quilts. As long as I have been stitching, I have NEVER stitch a piece for myself! Hard to believe but it's true! So of course, these charts would be put to good use and they would be greatly appreciated. I do not have a problem with the PIF either, I would be happy to.
