Leap Day Superior Thread Giveaway!


Happy Leap Day, everyone! Anyone have a birthday today? (Happy Birthday, Karen!) Using my mathematical expertise, I figure out today, that if I had been born a mere 13 days earlier, I would be turning 15 today.  (Think about that for awhile.) Since this day only comes around every four years, the good people at Superior Threads thought it would be a great day for giving away some free thread!
 I love Masterpiece Thread by Superior. If you haven't tried it, this is your chance...but I'm warning you, you'll be hooked right away! I'm using it now to quilt my hexagon quilt and can attest that when I have to stop and change the bobbin, there's hardly any lint inside the case. It's a fine thread, so the bobbin can hold a lot more...another reason to love it! I have three big spools of thread to give away, plus three fat quarters of Anna Maria Horner's cotton voile fabric, Good Folks, from my stash.
 I'd also like to share one of my favorite Superior products: pre-wound bobbins. They are great for free-motion quilting as each tightly woven bobbin holds 80 yards of Masterpiece Thread.  
So here's how it will work: There will be three prize winners. Each winner will receive a spool of Masterpiece thread, a fat quarter of Good Folks and a pre-wound bobbin. To enter, leave a comment telling me how old you would be if born on Leap Day or anything else you want to say (if you don't want to give up your age). For a second chance, become a follower of Lollyquiltz or tell me if you already follow. (Be sure that I have access to your e-mail address when you enter. No email equals no entry.) The give-away will close at midnight today, (CST) February 29, 2012.  There are more chances to win shown below, so be sure to visit these other great blogs....

I bought the doughnut pre-wound bobbins awhile ago and use it for all my applique projects. It is so easy to change to different colors and the bobbins hold so much thread!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well lucky you to be picked to offer this fun giveaway! And thanks for doing my birthday math for me! I have to add only six days to your number and that's how old I'd be: 15 years old if I'd been born 19 days sooner. Oh, but if I only knew at 15 what I know now. I've never used Superior thread, so thank you for the chance to win this great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am 30?? so does that mean divided by four... 7 and a half. That sounds fun. My little girl is 7 and a half right now and she is in costant woe and confusion with spurts of happiness when she is playing with friends. On second thought I will stay at 30. Hopefully my math is right, lol. I'm a sewer and it does involve quite a lot of math but that would explain my trouble right.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would be exactly 12. How weird that sounds!! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Well, there wasn't a leap day the year I was born but if I was born on the one closest to my birthday I would be 10 today. I like the sound of that. 10 was a good year.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I wasn't born on leap day, good thing, not good at figuring it out and I like to celebrate each year not only every 4 years! Even though I know you would celebrate every year :). Let's just say I'm not in my teens anymore!

  68. I was born in a leap year but not feb 29th! If I was celebrating my birthday today I would be 14!

  124. I don't care to do the math to see how much younger I could be! My mom's friend OraLee had a Leap Year birthday, and when I was young, I could never understand how someone so old could be younger than me!

    Seems like the great thing about this thread is the lint factor. I would love to try some, as I generally have lint buildup in my machine, on my sewing cabinet, even on my eyeglasses!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Pre-wound bobbins?? That is...is...is...genius! I'm really excited to see that!
