Giveaway: Subscription to GenQ Magazine

GenQ Magazine SubsriptionI appreciate my loyal readers here at Quilting at Craft Gossip. As a thank you, I’m going to give away a subscription to Generation Q Magazine. This is for six issues and can include the one you see here, with Victoria Findlay Wolfe on the cover. I was lucky enough to meet Victoria at QuiltCon. In fact, in one of the lectures, she and her buddies sat behind me and my BFF, Anne (Craft Gossip’s Sewing Editor). Victoria is a passionate and generous quilter, so worthy of a story in GenQ.

    Oh gosh, I spread my money around to several quilt shops in my area, hehe. I’m lucky enough to have more than one shop. I have to list them all, Quilter’s Corner, Thistle Dew, Fabric Garden and Country Sewing Center. Each shop is alittle different and I love them all.

    Thank you for a super giveway and a chance to win.

    I shop local as much as possible so my favorite is Fancy Tiger on S. Broadway in Denver. They have yarn, sewing & needlework supplies, classes and great weekly stitching get-togethers.

  5. Robyn says

    I’m currently in Stockholm & am shopping at Stadsmission – City Mission shop, just bought 3 pure wool skirts for the equivalent of $4 total. Have now unpicked all the pleats & washed material, ready to cut up.

  6. lyn lewis says

    I mostly buy at car boot sales, finding a variety of cottons in second hand clothing that’s for sale very cheaply.
    But I also treat myself once a year at the Harrogate Knitting & Stitches show, since i’m there, you know how it is….cough,cough.
    Since I like to use recycled materials and like making up scrappy designs……….I con myself into thinking I don’t spend much on my fettish……yeah!! right…..

  7. Bean says

    I get most of my fabric from my mom or my boyfriend’s granny. I also thrift old sheets, they amuse me.

  8. Brenda says

    I hit up the fabric stores whenever I am traveling. I also love looking through the online shops. Found just the right material online for my daughter’s wedding decor!

  9. Barbara says

    Okay, it’s Jo-Anns for the first stop, but if I need something special, I’ll usually hit the Quilt Basket, in Wappingers Falls, NY.

  14. Mimi says

    I live in the St. Louis area and shop at a great fabric store in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Jackman’s Fabrics has been in business for 110 years and the ladies there are so helpful and patient with me. I am a beginner quilter and need lots of help and they have great classes too.

  15. Jean Stout says

    I am a full-time RVer so get to visit fabulous shops all over the country including Alaska. I love to rescue antique blocks and complete a quilt from tag sales, thrift stores etc. I also search out quilt shows where ever I am and shop at the vendors. Great ones like H&W Fabrics from Greer,SC just sent me more fabric because I didn’t buy enough when at the Columbus, OH Natl Quilt Show! Bless them!

  16. ALOC says

    I pick up fabrics which catch my eye at G Street Fabrics, or Joann fabrics or estate sales.

  33. says

    It’s very hard to find a quilt shop here. Just regular fabric shop. I get mine at Fabric Fanatics in Summit USJ, Selangor, Malaysia. 😉 They have extremely adorable designs. But material wise not as huge of a range compared to those overseas.

  34. Vivien says

    I love shopping in charity shops, my daughter always says, “do you really need any more fabric?” but I love it! You never know what you are going to find.

  35. says

    So far my favorite place is my mother-in-law’s house – I get some of her scraps as she only makes 12″ squares.

  36. says

    I do not have any quilt shop in my city. But I find some good fabrics in second hand clothes’ shops. Also I buy them in different craft shops.

  37. says

    My mom and I have to travel about an hour and a half to reach the nearest quilt store, but it’s worth it. So many pretty fabrics at Periwinkle in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan :)

  38. says

    Sarah’s Fabrics in Lawrence, Kansas is the best for fabulous fabrics! I also get a lot of my fabrics at Quilter’s Quarters in Leavenworth, Kansas. Fat Quarter Shop is great for online shopping!
    Thanks for the chance!
