And the Winners Are …. !!!!

Wow .. this time of year sure has a habit of moving time in light speed proportions!   We have so many fun things to cover today – and they are all about US giving back to YOU!  Stay with us here … there is a lot of great stuff that you don’t want to miss! 

We actually just completed TWO  Grand Prize Drawings.  

The first, The Harvest Festival Drawing, is a $100 Shopping Spree and a $50 Mystery Gift (one of my favorites!).  All customers who placed an order during Thanksgiving week were eligible for this drawing… and the winners for the Thanksgiving Harvest Festival are: 

$100 December 2009 Shopping Spree – Jody M. of Parma Heights, OH
$50 Mystery Gift –  Alice T. of Bridgeton, MS
Congratulations to both of you!  We want to thank every one of you out there for your long-standing support.  Do you realize at the end of 2010 we will be celebrating our 10 years in business?  Talk about light speed! 

OK – Now, before we move on to the 30 Days, 30 Gifts, 30 Winners, we want to let you in on a couple of more things we are doing to give back to you. 

First,  we have ANOTHER $250 Shopping Spree up for grabs!  All orders placed during the month of December qualify for our 7th Annual Year End $250 Shopping Spree Drawing!   Each and every order placed in December, no matter how large or small the order, is entered into the drawing.   Can you even imagine how easy it would be to spend $250 of FREE MONEY at Homespun Hearth??  The drawing will be held on 1/1/2010, so place your orders this month! 

Second, like I said, December is the month of US giving back to YOU.  And so, this is the month that your Earned Homespun Rewards from 2009 pays off!  For all orders placed between today and December 31, you will recieve your 2009 earned discount … automatically!  And, while some items (like Furniture, Clubs & BOMs) don’t receive the discount … the purchase of those itmes still earn you higher rewards… and moves you closer to the next discount level!   

And, here is the cool part about Homespun Rewards … you still can reach higher levels even in December.!  And, here’s the even Cooler Cooler part … December is also our Annual 12 Days of Savings … and your Homespun Rewards are applied toward those discounts as well!!  We already have several “Queens” for 2009, and we are looking forward to crowning more!  To view your Earned Homespun Rewards, Login to your Account Here.  

OK – and now the next bit of Giving from Homespun Hearth 

We still need to finish the month to award final two winners who were so giving …

And now, what you all have been waiting for … Drumroll Please….. 

The 30 Days 30 Gifts 30 Winners Grand Prize Drawing Winners Are:

The Arrow Suzi Sidekick Sewing Storage Cabinet –  Karie S!  Looking back, Karie has entered several times during the month – and by the sounds of it, she is pretty busy on the homefront, too!  Congratulations Karie .. now, the difficult part … what color to choose? 

And, the 2nd Grand Prize Winner Recieves a Queen Size quilt Kit from our Mytery Series.  This quilt was designed by Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilts and features Anne Sutton Flowers for Emma Fabric… it is beautiful, and it will be a total mystery until it is put together … by… Barb Nankivell.  Congratulations Barb!

Once again, all of us at Homespun Hearth want to thank Every One of you for your giving nature, kind deeds, and overall generous spirit that makes you who you are.  We know that it is not always easy to make that extra effort, so when you do, please know that it really does make a difference!

30 Day, 30 Gifts, Day 11 Winner

Good morning all and Thank you to all Veterans!  As most of you know, I am surrounded by many Veterans – my husband was in the Air Force for 24 years, my brother-in-law is currently an Army Reservist, and so many of my dearest friends are married to those who serve and have served.  And, to help pay it back some, we are ‘hosts’ for cadets at the AF Acadamy – a kind of home away from home.   Well, apparently the words is out that we love the cadets … we now sponsor 8 different cadets, and at any given time, we could have as many as 11 or 12 over (they bring their friends, too).  So, together with my 3 teen boys, wanna take a guess at my grocery bill for a typical Cadet visit?   Well, it isn’t pretty – but it is worth it!   There are basically 3 things cadets do … eat …. sleep …. eat.  Well, they throw in a game of football or basketball, and they do their laundry, too!

Fireworks Crystals Surprise!

So, I think it is only appropriate I do something Veterany today. 

Today’s winner receives a Firework’s Crystal wall hanging kit – something quite patriotic!
Our Day 11 Winner is…
11/8  #9 – Helen White !  Congratulations and Thank you!

Because Helen White did something kind she wins this great kit!

Have a great day!

30 Days, 30 Gifts, 30 Winners!

With Thanksgiving and the winter holidays ahead of us, we decided that it was time to let all of our quilting Givingfriends know how special you all are to us.  So, we have a special event planned for the month of November – 30 Days, 30 Gifts, 30 Winners!  We hope you all will participate .. not for us, but for those around you!

What Homespun Hearth has Planned:
A Month Of Giving from Homespun Hearth! That’s right – for 30 days we will give 30 gifts to 30 winners for the entire month of November!  Every day we are going to select one participant to receive a special gift from Homespun Hearth.  We know that a lot of people have struggled financially over the past couple of years, and yet this hasn’t stopped them from being kind to others and doing good deeds.  We believe that there’s no better person than a quilter, and we know that you are giving a helping hand at every turn.  We want to let you all know that we appreciate who you are and what you do, and so we would like to reward you the best way we know how … with great quilting goodies! 

How to win:
 30 days, 30 gifts, 30 winners … and one of those could be you! What’s the catch, you ask? No catch! Well, not really. Here is how it goes – for the month of November, we want to ‘reward’ those of you who do a special deed or act  of kindness for somebody… anybody – and you just have to let us know!   And don’t be shy.  What you do may sometimes go unnoticed, but we want to make sure that this time it does not!  Simply post your deed or act on this blog, and we will put your name in the ‘Drawing Pot’.  Well, it isn’t actually a pot.  It’s more like a bowl.  A huge bowl.  But, it works!  Once you tell us your story, you are eligible for a drawing every day of the month.  You can only win one of the daily prizes,  but everybody who does any act of kindness or special deed will be placed in the grand prize drawing … a wonderfulf Queen Size Quilt Kit from our Quilt-a-lisious Grab Bag!  You can do one act all month, or you can get more chances to win if you get your name added every day  by doing a daily deed!  You just have to let us know .  Mostly, we know  that the quilting community will be impressed at the wonderful nature of our quilters!

What we are giving:
We have some pretty great stuff we are giving away – everything from yards of fabric, the new Better Homes & Garden 2010 Quilting Calendar, fat quarter bundles, quilt kits, jelly rolls and books, just to name a few.  Every gift will come specially wrapped, plus you will recieve an additional shopping coupon for your next order at Homespun Hearth!

So, starting today all you have to do is blog something here that you have done today that was just a bit more than you needed to.  Just post to this blog, and beginning on Sunday November 1st, we will begin to draw names!

Thank you for being so giving!

Teresa & the entire Homespun Hearth Customer Care Team!
