2013 Golden Quilter Awards – Final Recognition To All Nominees

congratulations to the 2013 GoldenQuilter Award Nominees copy

While today is the last day you can vote for your favorite nominee for the 2013 Golden Quilter Awards, I wanted to emphasize, nominations and voting is performed by quilters from all over the world.  They took time to submit a nomination and/or vote for their favorite nominees, to give recognition to those in the quilting business.  As such, to be a nominee is quite an honor as you were recognized by quilters from around the world that appreciate how you have made our world of quilting so wonderful!  

SewCalGal is the host for this annual event. As such, she is unable to nominate, nor vote.  But, along with the help of some wonderful PR Angels, a major effort is made to ensure WW quilters are given the opportunity to nominate and vote in this event.

Congratulations to all of the 2013 Golden Quilter Award Nominees…..
