Sponsorship Opportunities for Project QUILTING

The 9th season of Project QUILTING is LESS THAN ONE MONTH away!!!!!  Seriously!  The first challenge goes up on January 7th at Noon, CST right here on this blog. 


I’ve been busy behind the scenes pulling together sponsors and prizes for you all!  The list of prizes is growing and the excitement is building!  Did you know that last year we increased participation in Project QUILTING by just over 250%?  I can’t wait to see what happens with those numbers this year.

Anyway – I did send out some specific emails for sponsorship opportunities but I wanted to put the opportunity out there so if you or anyone/any company you know would like to join in the fun you can!

Here is the deal:

About Project QUILTING

Running 12 weeks during January, February, and March, Project QUILTING is a series of online challenges for quilters held on my blog, Persimon Dreams. I post a new challenge every two weeks; participants have a week to meet the challenge and link up their final projects to the blog. Then, since it's a little intense to make a quilt a week, there's a week off to catch up with life.

Past sponsors have provided gift certificates, patterns, fabric, buttons, postcards, and other fun things which are awarded several ways:

  • All completed entries are entered in a random prize drawing after the challenge deadline.
  • After voting during the off week, a Viewer's Choice winner is announced.
  • At the end of the season, a Grand Prize is drawn. Each completed project gets an entry, along with a bonus entry awarded to anyone completing the season's full slate of challenges.
