Here's the News

I know that I have been a little mean... making hints, keeping secrets from you...

just not being a good blogette at all...but I'm going to make up for it today:



Sherri & I are happy to
Announce:


A Year of Schnibbles Club!

Sherri from A Quilting Life and I have been working on a fun idea. We wanted to make it special and fun for you too. We love Schnibbles, you love Schnibbles. You love charm packs, we love charm packs… so let combine the two and do a Schnibbles a month! Does anybody want to join us? We shared our idea with Carrie of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company and she’s excited about it too!
Here’s what we’ll do:
Each month Sherri and I will pick a Schnibbles to make. You get the pattern from your LQS or from one of our featured quilt shops and grab some charms from your stash or if you prefer… buy a new charm pack. At the first of every month you will post our finished Schnibbles. We will have links to everybody’s blog so we can have a show and tell and most importantly we can give away prizes! Our featured quilt shops will be offering prizes along with Sherri, myself and of course Carrie too!


So are you in? Sign up’s start now until September 1st.


If you would like to join in here's what you need to do:


1. Leave a comment on this post and say “I’m in” and leave a link to your blog; then go over to Sherri’s blog and do the same.
2. Grab our button and put it on your sidebar.
3. Put me on your favorite’s list and Sherri too… so you don’t miss out on anything. We'll have surprises!
4. On the 1st of each month you will comment on our Club members post. So we can link back to your blog and see your finished project.

What we will do:


1. We will post our club member blogs’ on our sidebar.
2. Pick a new pattern each month and list the fabric requirements.
3. We will list member’s links of finished Schnibbles and have drawing or two every month!
4. Throughout the month we will share pictures of your quilts on our blogs
“in no particular order”.

Also: rumor has it that that there will possibly be an "exclusive" Schnibbles pattern for our club members!

Ok.. this is the most crazy thing I will do!!!
But can´t resist... :o))
So I´m in!!! :o)))
Or at least I think so!!! One thing will be the hardest.. to get all the patterns.. with the shipping costs..
Maybe I need to sleep on it..:o))
No.. I will give it a try..:o))

I'm in! This sounds fun, plus I have always loved those little patterns but never tried one out. And I have a bunch of charm packs (because I love them) just waiting for something like this.

Sounds exciting. I'm in!!

Patchwork Penguin said...

What an interesting idea. Not sure if my LQS has schnibbles patterns.... patterns aren't their big thing.

Laurie said...

Oh boy! I love Schnibbles! I even just added a picture of the Tuffets pattern to my blog header - they are so gorgeous! I told myself no more projects, but I really, really, really can't resist this one! Maybe it will bring me through the long cold winter here in Maine! While I am still in an insane mood - count me in!

Mandy said...

I'll give it a try... but if my machine doesn't get fixed I may be participating in spirit only!

P.S. I'm pretty new to sewing too so I don't know about getting it all done in a month... I don't even know the patterns that well lol... but it sounds like a lot of fun!

I'm worried that the shipping costs will be expensive for the patterns... any way we can have a pdf to buy for us Canadian folks???

Heather said...

I love Schnibbles patterns, I’ve done 3, and have 3 more kitted up, so you can count me in, they are so much fun! This is such a great idea. Question… if I’ve done one of the ones you select already, do I need to make another one, or can I use it for the month? Just checking…

Please count me in - I love Schnibbles!

julia said...

Hi Sinta,
crazy...cool...irresistible...I'm in!
Maybe you'll even choose a pattern I already have so that I won't have to wait too long for the mail to arrive in my neck of the woods...(Europe). But I hope I can keep pace - I'll give my very best ;o).
Thanks for sharing this fabulous idea,
Julia

I know what happened, now. Fiberdoodles and whimsy is linked twice--both for my name and Sharon's. I'm heartstrings and Sharon is fiberdoodles, I'm guessing. I'm a pest, I know, but I am so excited I don't want to miss out!! Have a great day!!!

Just rereading this post from way back when...somehow I missed that there might be an exclusive Schnibbles pattern for members...how amazing would that be? Smile. Once again thanks for the year of Schnibbles, it was fun!
