Sew Mama Sew Giveaway and QAL announcement!

THE GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
Hello giveaway hoppers!
If you are new here, welcome!!
If you have been here before, I am glad that you came back!!! :)

If you are new here you should know that I am obsessed with Paper Piecing and I offer FREE paper piecing patterns of very famous characters like Snoopy & Friends, Alice in Wonderland, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and many many more!

Two big ANNOUNCEMENTS:
  1. I am moving all my patterns to a new website alidatweloqdesigns.blogspot.com!
    If you want to read more about the move, check out the link above.
    During the month of December, please be patient with me as the move may get messy and patterns maybe get lost in boxes :) if you have any issue, don't hesitate to get in touch with me!

  2. I will be running a FUN QAL for 2016... a very non-traditional QAL that incorporates several techniques to create a quilt like you have never seen before!
    Not interested in the entire quilt? No problem!! Each block can be incorporated in a finished project perfect to gift to yourself, your kids, your nephews or your grandkids!!
    What is the theme? Board Games!!

To find more information about the QAL and subscribe to the newsletter to get more information during the month of December, please visit the official page for the QAL.

And now, let's get down to the giveaway business :)

Some Halloween Themed charms...
and few Tula Pink's Fat Quarters...
and a Clover needle Threader!
THE GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED



Rules are simple:
  • leave a comment below answering a simple question:
    Do you have a favorite board game?
    Mine was "Non T'Arrabbiare" which is the Italian version of the English Ludo :)
  • for an extra entry, follow my new blog through Blogger (GFC) or Bloglovin, or join my AlidaTweLoQDesign FB group, or follow on Pinterest, and add a second comment below to tell me how you follow! (new followers are welcome! and if you are already following, just let me know how!!)

Important notes:
  • the giveaway will close on December 13th at (11:59 p.m. EST), and the winner will be contacted by email on Monday, Dec 14th.
    If I don't hear back by Tue (5 pm EST), I will pick another winner.
  • this giveaway is open to anyone (US and non-US)
  • comments are going to be moderated, so they will not be published immediately.
    But in 24h I promise that I will approve all the comments that are not spam :)
  • if you are a no-reply blogger, please leave your email in the comment because I will NOT publish comments by no-reply bloggers without the email (I need a way to contact you if you win). If you are worried about spam, just type your email like "tweloq [space] at [space] gmail [dot] com" or similar :)
  • !!! IMPORTANT !!! During past giveaways I received at least 50 comments from no-reply bloggers and I didn't add them in the drawing (even if I appreciate the comment, I need a way to contact you if you win). So if you don't receive an email from me answering your comment, come back and put another comment with your email!!! I cannot hunt your email through fancy links, website, etc. I am NOT making YOU jump through hoops to get the prize, so do NOT make ME jump through hoops to get your email address
  • UPDATE: at this point (Wed, Dec 9, 9:49 pm EST) there are 30 comments from no-reply bloggers or from people that ask me to click links/profiles to get their email address. Sorry people: if I cannot access your email directly from your comment, I will NOT publish it.
    HOWEVER: I decided to change the rules... I will add a prize for the no-reply bloggers and for people that do not provide their contact information. I will send it to a random location in your home country (that I will guess from your name) and then I will write you a clue about where to find the next clue for a national/international scavenger hunt! :) if you don't make it easy for me to find you, I won't make it easy for you to find the prize!! :)
    Seriously: it takes 5 minutes to check if you are a no-reply blogger!! There are tons of tutorial that shows you how to check and how to stop this terrible thing that is preventing you to get new friends, replies to your comments and prizes!!! A simple step-by-step tutorial can be found HERE: http://www.flusterbuster.com/2013/02/are-you-no-reply-blogger.html. It has pictures and detailed instructions...

THE GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
