Coming soon to a blog near you

Breaking News:

Blogathon Canada will be here on Nov 22nd!

What a cool idea. I love bloggers. I love crafts. I love Canada. This is like a trifecta of awesomeness!

Sew Sisters Quilt Shop is sponsoring this blog hop from Nov 19th-Nov 24th and today is the official you-get-to-tell-everybody-about-it day. Later this month, you’ll have the opportunity to visit some great blogs and see some equally great projects and possibly win some loot. We’ll spend time talking about ourselves, our hobbies, our cities and get to know one another a little bit better. I cannot tell you how much I have relied on the blogging community to educate me on my new quilting hobby. An absolutely wonderful group of people are here to inspire, educate and some of them just downright make me giggle sometimes.

Here’s a quick rundown of the schedule:

Monday, November 19 BC Felicity Felicity Quilts

Monday, November 19 BC Cathy Blueberry Patch

Tuesday, November 20 NS Jeanette STAMP * STITCH * CREATE

Tuesday, November 20 NB Holly Through My Window

Wednesday, November 21 AB Shena Apple Pie Patchwork

Wednesday, November 21 SK Patti Retired to Quilt

Thursday, November 22 QC Marika Live, Laugh, Love... Sew

Thursday, November 22 MB Heather Church Avenue Quilts --that's me!

Friday, November 23 YT Vivian Quilting Under the Midnight Sun

Friday, November 23 YT Janet Caribou Crossing Chronicles

Saturday, November 24 ON Cathi Quilt Obsession

Saturday, November 24 ON Cara Cara Quilts

Saturday, November 24 ON Kaye Miss Print 

I've already established a huge crush on Marika’s pillow so we must band together and convince her to make one for me, ok?

Alright, I might be overstepping there a bit. But go look at it and you’ll understand my enthusiasm.

Sew Sisters is also generously donating two prizes per day to give away. I have an idea in mind for my prize and it has a definite Winnipeg connection. Intrigued? Well, then make sure to come back on the 22nd! Anyone can win, Canadian or not.

We’ll also be sharing the names of other bloggers in our province so if you want to be included, leave a comment with Sew Sisters. I have my own list of Manitoba bloggers I’ll be sharing but some of you might be keeping yourselves a secret. Time to come out of the closet

….unless there is fabric in your closet

….then I would totally understand why you’re in there

…and can I come over?


  1. Awww thank you !!

    Were you in the swap ??
    Can't wait to see what prize you chose !! It's going to be so nice to connect with Canadian bloggers ! Everyone I "know" lives in the US.. not that they are bad people, but it's nice to know people that come from the same country !

  2. Hey Heather, I found you via Felicty Quilts, and came by to meet you as I am also a Manitoban quilter, knitter, etc! I love meeting "local" crafters, so I am signing up to follow along. Looks like you have some nice projects on the go!
