Barb happens to be away right now and I am writing the newsletter and staying at Barb’s house with our mom. When there is any opportunity to raid Barb’s stash, I always do. She won’t miss it!  I am giving away a variety of items. I am not reviewing the books as Barb does, you would not want to see my review!!!  I will give you my descriptions, I hope you enjoy my perspective. All the details on the giveaways are below, just email us by the next newsletter for your chance to win.


July Sweepstakes:

Email us to win these prizes!

1.  Book: French Farmhouse by Marie Claude-Picon. So who wants to build a farmhouse?  I guess it is too long of a class for the Festival so I may as well give the book away. Oh wait, I just noticed the subtitle, it is a book about Quilting. “Quilts with Rustic Simplicity”  Ok so never mind my description….  Email pghknitandcrochet@gmail.com with the title French Farmhouse.

2.  Quilling Paper:  Now we are supposed to make Quilts with paper?  I have no clue how I am going to wash it when it gets dirty. Oh no, I guess I read that one wrong too. It says Quilling, not Quilting. Anyway, it is a pretty colorful pack of quilling paper.  Email pghknitandcrochet@gmail.com with the title Quilling Paper

3.  Fabric: There are 5 Fat Quarters of some pretty speckled Black and Gold fabric here. I don’t understand why they call them fat quarters. They are not so fat, they are actually kind of thin. Can you tell I don’t sew? But hey, with football season around the corner you might be able to use these Pittsburgh Colors! Email pghknitandcrochet@gmail.com with the title Black and Gold Fabric.

4.  Yarn:  2 Mini Skeins of Yarn in purple and grey from Frabjous Fibers. They are pretty and I like the colors, so if Barb had a project planned for these, she can just forget about it. Email pghknitandcrochet@gmail.com with the title Mini Skeins.
