It is my great pleasure to introduce our third and final sponsor for the Christmas in July contest. Meet Quilters Newsletter Magazine (QNM). We've known the wonderful editors and staff over at QNM for several years, and have always been so inspired by what we see in their magazine. No matter what quilting topics interest you, you will most certainly find something that will pique your excitement in every single issue.
The Magazine's August/September issue just came out a day or two ago and as we flipped through the pages, we found topics ranging from documenting your quilts, selecting the right thread, a Q&A session with Betty Ekern Suiter, staff picks and more. Of all the quilting magazines out there, it is safe to say that Quilters Newsletter Magazine is our go-to resource. And did we mention the quilts that they feature? No matter which type of quilt you appreciate most, an issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine will keep you occupied for hours. On a more personal level, QNM's editor, Lori Baker, is a great friend of the team here at Connecting Threads and someone who we respect deeply in the quilting world. If you haven't read through Quilters Newsletter Magazine before, or maybe it's just been a while since you've picked one up, I would encourage you to get a copy and see what you've been missing. They're really great people with a strong understanding of what is happening throughout the quilting world.
Lori and her team have so graciously agreed to provide one of our prize packs in the Christmas in July contest, and this is one prize pack that you don't want to miss out on.
The items included in the Quilters Newsletter Magazine prize are:

The total retail value of the prize pack is nearly $100, but the value that you will derive from these items is priceless. You're going to learn...a lot!
Not only can you get a ton of valuable information from the magazine and the resources in the prize pack, the Magazine's Facebook page and Pinterest page are full of inspiration, ideas, tips and tricks. We highly recommend them!
