Giveaway for Clothworks' AMB Farm to Fabric Challenge!


Clothworks Presents

Farm to Fabric Challenge

This post is a challenge and a giveaway! American Made Brand has a great challenge going on and some lucky designers will have their quilts in the Houston Quilt Show!  Now this is a challenge worth taking.  Plus, it's for everybody who creates quilts from their own designs!

AMB wants to get the word out about its challenge, so they've asked several bloggers to spread the word and are offering this great tote as a giveaway prize .

You can help spread the word and have a chance to win this useful tote (without the veggies, of course).  Because time is running short, I'm going to ask you to blitz the internet: use whatever social media you have--Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, your blog, Flickr, LinkedIn, Reddit, StumbleUpon, 3rdRevolution, etc. You have three days, so hurry!  Entries close on July 30 at 5 p.m. Wednesday evening  I'll choose a winner.

Get out there and blitz, buzz, and bark! Now I need to know what you do, so come back to this post and leave a note. Every, yes every, time you write about this challenge you can come back and enter!  So if you share on Twitter, FB, and Flickr, you have three opportunities!  It's that easy.
