I would love the subscription because I need to get some ideas to make quilts from my stash for donation for community service. I'm at a dead standstill and am motivated to do something..but just what is alluding me......a subscription for all year would be fantastic! What a nice give away!

A whole year of magz. Gee---I could spend hours looking thru them, then a lot more hours starting some to add to my other UFO's because I found another one I want to do. Take Care!!

Gari said...

Is this fast enough? I haven't been quilting long enough to loose my enjoyment and excitement of getting a new magazine and most of my quilts are inspired by what I seen in them.

What do I say here?? I love that particular magazine and have had subscriptions in the past. I try to pick one up when I can squeeze my grocery money (a friend is featured in that mag every once in a while). I could say I need the inspiration....or that I need the motivation....hmmmmm. I will risk honesty here....when I get a new quilting magazine I set up a plan. I tell myself it is ok to disappear for several hours (in the bathroom, or behind a locked bedroom door), after all I am the almost 50 year old mother of small children. Most would be insane by now, but not me....why? Because of quilting magazines!!! I work my plan carefully. There is usually hot coffee involved and a clear understanding that ANY needs be taken directly to DAD for that few hours. So what would a subscription mean to me??? SANITY! It has been quite a while since I have had a new magazine. I am wondering if they let you hang quilts on those padded walls???

Oh, Nancy, how sweet!!

Don't count me in on this as I'm already a longtime subscriber (don't ask for how many years cause if I told you then I'd have to take you out!).

I'm just writing because whoever you pick among the other posts is going to just love this gift subscription.

It was very nice of you to think of it!

I would love the subscription so I don't have to always be looking for it on the newstand...I try to never miss an issue. I love getting things in the mail each day...something to look foreword to each day!

It would have been wonderful to have a whole year of APQ. We quilters is always in need of inspiration so this is a great giveaway. Many year ago I had a subscibtion on this magazine, so I would really love to have it coming in my mailbox again.
Wish you a merry christmas and a happy new sewingyer.

Pat said...

Oh, my....I, too, would love this for the inspiration and would hope that with a whole year's subscription I would actually start AND finish a few projects from it! What I love about quilting magazines is that I can "escape" to a dreamworld for awhile as I imagine all the lovely things I'll make and all the pretty (and practical) things I'll buy from the ads in there! LOL So....feel free to pick me....hehehe Oh..here's another reason. Our cluster of mailboxes is about 3/4 of a mile from my house and it's SO sad to go there and find no GOOD mail....so at least I'd periodically have really GREAT mail if this magazine was headed my way!!!

Nancy said...

WOW! Very generous of you!
My newest passion is quilting and I'm thinking I could use this magazine for all it's wonderfulness to get many ideas for new projects.

I would love to have the subscription for inspiration. I don't have the talent to design, but I can copy really well. I would find a way to pay this gift forward.

I would love to receive this magazine as a gift. It could be an early birthday gift (Dec 18). I have been sewing for years but this year I made my first real quilts. Usually I just make tops and some one else does the rest. Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas!

I would love this subscription as mine is about to run out (I think??) (Don't Keep Track of these things very well.) It is a great magazine with great tips, instructions, and designs. So nice of you to share this.

Laurie said...

What a nice present of you to donate! I have received this magazine in the past and have kept all my issues. There is always at least one pattern in it that I feel "qualified" to try. Christmas is pretty sparse this year, it would be a nice thing to put under the tree for as a present for me. Thank you for the chance to win!
PS - I did win some fabric that arrived yesterday, so I do have a present to wrap just for me!!

Oh yes, yes, yes - I would love a subscription to American Patchwork Nancy! I have never had a quilting magazine subscription, so I am left in the dark! Not really, but it sounds like something I would enjoy. Thanks for offering this give away.

First of all, thank you for this thoughtful giveaway. Now, the reason I would love to have it is to give my niece as a gift. She is in her mid 20's and started quilting just a year ago, she is already emersed in the joy of quilting and finds so much comfort in it after working full time as a social worker in a shelter, then coming home and going to school to get her Masters so she can go into teaching. However, like most young married couples she has to pinch pennies and magazines are a luxury she has to pass up if she wants to buy quilting supplies. She would be so delighted to be getting her own magazine and not having to return them to us, LOL. Plus, it would be a wonderful surprise that would remain forever secret between us. Not even her mother would know where it came from. Now, before I go...GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!

Brenda said...

Well arent you the a jolly little elf! I live in fear of letting my subscription expire so I am not entering the giveaway, I think I'm safely subscribed well into retirement. LOL! Good luck to all the entrants though, it's a fun magazine...B=)

What a lovely gift that would be. A whole year of inspiration and ideas and projects to fill my quilting days. I have a terrible addiction to quilt magazines and books and this prize would feed my habit nicely.

Thanks for the chance.
