Give - Aways Aplenty!


It's a huge give-away week on the blogmosphere. I am late to it I know - so I missed out on the blog roll at The Quilting Gallery. But I managed to find another charm pack of 'Summersville' by Lu Summers whilst cleaning up my sewing room today. So all you have to do to have 4 chances to win is:

1. tell me your favourite ville/town in the world and why. Mine would be Whitby on the Yorkshire Coast - not only is it quaint with huge tides, abbey ruins and great local accents, but it is where James Cook first began his education to become the navigator, scientist and sailor that changed the world.
2. follow my blog or let me know if you are one of my regulars. 
3. Promote this giveaway on your blog or facebook business page and post me your link.
4. 'like' Grandma Macs Quilts on Facebook just so I can reach 500 and have another give-away of a Kaffe Fasset charm pack.

This give-away is open to international readers too, so long as you supply a valid email for me to contact you.

This give-away will CLOSE next Tuesday 4th September at 8pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time). I will announce the winner in my Wednesday post.

Ok other give-aways you might want to visit this week are:

Quokka Quilts - with a FQ bundle of Storyboek II 
Quiet Play - with a charm pack of 'Pure' by Sweetwater Designs plus 4 Transport Paper Pieced patterns from Kristy herself.
The Peony Teacup - to win an Aurofil Thread colour chart
Pretty Bobbins - a 6 stack of Gemma's favourite fat quarters


Blossom Heart Quilts - for some Japanese Kokka fabric and a chance to win a voucher to Alyce's Etsy store.
Local Honey Crafts - with a layer cake of Sew Stitchy 
The Patch Smith - for 3 people to win her sweet pdf patterns

  2. Favourite town - that's a toughy, so many places I love to be! Well, you know I really love Adelaide, I love it because we're not huge, like an oversized country town really! Close to the sea, the hills, lots of wineries close by. Yep Adelaide for me!

  12. My favourite town is Brugge- super super pretty; at least one chocolate shop on every street (yummy Belgian chocolates); yummy french fries (if you're in for a junk food fix); and a Belgian beer to suit virtually every taste ;-)

  13. It's difficult to name a favourite town. I've enjoyed staying at so many places and they're all awesome for different reasons and tons of good memories. I'm very partial to Prague, though it's a city rather than a town? If town town, my hometown, I guess, a small town in the norht of Germany right next to a dozen lakes and a national park.

  15. My favorite town is my mom's hometown, Martinsburg, PA. I love the little town with the cafe my cousin owns, and my uncle's furniture store, which was started by my grandpa. The farmlands nearby are beautiful in every way, too!

  30. My favourite town in the world is a little beachside one called Acitrezza in Sicily, because that's where I met my hubby! And it's kinda cool because the home of the Greek mythological beast Cyclops is said to have come from there!

  39. I love the town where I live. Carcross, Yukon Territory. It is the most beautiful setting I`ve ever seen, which makes up for all the wonky things.

  40. My favourite town in Stuart Town! Historically it used to be called Ironbark and was where Banjo Patterson wrote the poem - The Man from Ironbark.
    It is not the prettiest town and being in Central NSW - it is hot dry and dusty. But it is where I spent my teenage years riding my horses and embracing the country life. My parents still live there now and there really is no better place then home.

  46. I like your FB page, I'd have to say where I'm living right now, a small island in Morton Bay Queensland. The only way on or off the island is by boat or car ferry. Now that's the life.
