From the Alex Anderson newsletter:
International Quilt Day Weekend – Free shows and a chance to win a Bernina 550 QE

Dear Quilting Friend –

International Quilt Day is just around the corner, and I wanted to let you know about a gift that Ricky and I have put together for quilters around the world.

March 15 through Sunday, March 17, everyone who signs on to The Quilt Show will have free access to over 140 of our internet shows, including my episode numbers 408 (All About Neutrals) and 809 (Paper Pieced Perfection) and the many mini-lessons included in the various shows.

Beginning on Friday March 15

You can watch the shows, check out the great tutorials, browse the gallery of about 20,000 member quilts, visit the forum for answers to the most burning quilt questions and lots, lots more. And if you missed my shows, you can see them now.

You can also enter the TQS prize drawing with fantastic prizes from companies we know and love like Bernina, Gammill, Superior Threads, AccuQuilt, C&T Publishing, RJR Fabric, and Ricky and I will have gift baskets to give away too.

The grand prize is a new Bernina 550QE sewing machine!

I wanted to make you aware of this amazing event so you can take advantage of everything this exciting weekend has to offer without leaving home and all for free.

Don’t hesitate to share this email with your quilting friends, fellow guild members, social networking friends and local quilt shops so that they don’t miss out on this fun weekend. And feel free to post an abbreviated version of the details on your Facebook page. I want everyone to know about this amazing 3-day celebration of all things quilting.

So check in at www.thequiltshow.com on Friday, March 15, and enjoy the shows and exploring The Quilt Show website and all it has to offer!

If you happen to be at the Lancaster, PA AQS quilt show this weekend, please stop by The Quilt Life booth. I would like to meet you! I also hear there is still room in my evening lecture.

I look forward to meeting you soon – and we quilters do get around!

Alex

PS:  Just a reminder that my shows are episode numbers 408 and 809.
