Happy National Quilting Month! You know, the folks here at Missouri Star are blessed with the unique opportunity to meet quilters from across the globe. We love chatting with you about precuts, patterns, and notions, but what we REALLY LOVE are the stories you tell. Quilting touches so many of our hearts on a much deeper level than just pretty fabrics pieced together. For some, quilting is an artistic outlet. It is a medium to allow your creative talents to really shine. For others, quilting can be a sort of therapy. I know that as I measure, cut, and stitch, I feel a great sense of release and relaxation. It is very satisfying to create my own little piece of order and beauty even though the rest of the world may be spinning out of control!
We want to hear your story. Why do you quilt? How has quilting made your life better? How has quilting changed you? Tell us in 500 words or less and you could be one of three entries chosen to have your story featured on our Daily Deal page and Daily Deal email. And if that’s not cool enough, we will also award the three winners with $100 each in Quilter’s Cash (10,000 Quilter’s Cash points)! Woohoo, right?!! So start writing right away! We want to be inspired! We want to laugh! We want to cry! Just be sure to send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon (CST) this Wednesday, March 12th. I’m so excited, I think I’m going to be checking the email every five minutes to see what comes in!
The entries we select to be featured will appear as our Daily Deal story this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (13th-15th), with Saturday being National Quilting Day!
A few details to remember: If your entry is chosen, but you don’t want your name attached to it, please specify that you would like it to be anonymous, or use a fake name. Otherwise, we will use whichever name appears in your e-mail. Also, although we are selecting only three winners for this weeks contest, we may use some of the entries not chosen this week in future Daily Deal stories or on our blog or magazine, therefore, by willingly submitting your story, you acknowledge that Missouri Star may use it at some future date for commercial purposes.
We really can’t wait to hear about the impact quilting has made on your life! Happy Quilting 🙂
