A Giveaway from Library Gal & One Stitch Off!




Okay gals, now this is a real turn of events! While quilting is my most favorite past time, my friend Debbie and I have started a little chicken. What you say? Well, grandma used to say, "everyone needs a chicken so they can sell the eggs for spare household money." Insert the words "fabric money" and you've the picture!

So, Debbie brillantly cooked up this great idea to start making stamped metal jewelry. We both love how it looks and have been pounding our hearts out getting it up and going. One Stitch Off Mixed Metal Stamped Jewelry has been hatched! We hope to spread our little business far and wide and it's first debut will be at Pacific International Quilt Festival, available in the Honey Run booth (#110). You can stop by and see if for yourself if you are going to the show.

Because we are giddy with positivity, we want to give away a personalized stamped necklace. Yours could say, Mom, Wife, Grandma, Quilter...we'll add the charm you'd like or crystals in a favorite color.

So, spread the word about our giveaway and good luck!
