Suzanne’s Great Big Giveaway (and sale)

Updated:  January 31, 2010: giveaway is now over, go here for the results.

What’s the occasion?

I’m celebrating 1000+ blog posts, and starting a clearance sale to reduce the inventory in my small retail shop.  The online shop will be staying open, but the brick and mortar version will be closing this spring. For more information, you can visit this post.

The prizes:

    1 (one) grand prize winner, drawn at random from all entries, will receive their choice of a 100 fat quarter collection (chosen by me) or a yarn collection (chosen in conjunction with the winner) valued at $125 (full retail value)

    5 (five) additional random winners will receive a Baker’s Dozen fat quarter collection (that’s 13 fat quarters, chosen by me) or yarn of their choice that totals $15 retail.

How to enter:

  1. Two entries for commenting on this blog post. (edited to add:  if, for some reason, you are unable to comment, send me an e-mail:  suzanne at suzanneearley dot net, and I’ll throw you into the mix.)
  2. Two entries for posting about the giveaway and my sale on your blog (you need to send me a link via e-mail so I can verify). (There’s a sample link code at the bottom of the post and you can cut and paste!)  (edited to add:  Facebook posts or tweets on Twitter are valid ways to enter, too.)
  3. Two entries for every $5 spent in the Knots & Bolts online store (shipping included).

More Details:

Obviously, no purchase is necessary to enter.  Entries will be accepted until midnight CST on January 30, 2010, winners will be selected by random drawing and announced some time on Sunday, January 31, 2010. Make sure I have a way to contact you!

The Sale:

All yarn and fabric at Knots & Bolts is 30% off.  In about 3 weeks, I’ll be marking it down further, and you are welcome to wait for even lower prices, but once fabric and yarn is gone, it’s gone, no reorders.  I’ll do my best to keep the online stock up to date, but if something sells out before I can update the site, I’ll credit you for the difference as soon as I can. Also, all sales are final, so make sure you really meant to order it. If you have any questions about colors or whether something goes with something else, I’m happy to take additional photos of fabric and yarn for you.

Please pass the word:

Please help me get the word out, tell your friends about the sale — the fabric is nearly all $3.50/yard, and I have lots that would be great for quilt backs or sashings or backgrounds!!  Here’s some code you can copy and paste to your blog:
