Welcome to episode 124, in which I talk with quilt designer, author, and teacher Kimberly Einmo.
Kimberly is the author of Quilt a Travel Souvenir, Jelly Roll Quilts & More, Jelly Roll Quilt Magic, and Precut Bonanza! 200 Pieced Blocks from Cut Strips & Shapes.
Kimberly also has a set of specialty rulers available: The Simpli-EZ Jelly Roll Ruler, EZ Flying Geese Ruler, Easy Pineapple Log Cabin Ruler, and the Easy Hearts Cut Tool.
Her books and rulers are available on her website at www.kimberlyeinmo.com (click on "store"), and you may want to check out her blog while you're there!
In addition to teaching face-to-face in the real world, Kimberly also has two classes on Craftsy: "Magical Jelly Roll Quilts," and "Chain of Stars Mystery Quilt." If you're a listener, you may recall me talking about having done two versions of Chain of Stars myself. It's a beautiful design, but no spoilers here!
I'm thrilled to be able to announce that Craftsy is sponsoring a giveaway. One lucky person will win one of Kimberly Einmo's classes on Craftsy--whichever one the winner chooses--for free. Woot woot!
To enter the giveaway, use this link: http://www.craftsy.com/ext/QFTROU_Giveaway
If you already have a Craftsy account, use your existing login information to be entered. If you don't have a Craftsy account, you will be prompted to set one up (for free) to enter. You will need a Craftsy account in order to take the Kimberly Einmo class of your choice, if you win!
If you have trouble seeing the giveaway page, using Firefox should help. One entry per person.
This giveaway will close on Wednesday, May 22nd.
Once again: You must use the link above to enter the giveaway. Comments left on the show notes to this episode (below) will not enter you in the giveaway...but will be greatly enjoyed and appreciated! So please talk to me after you've entered the giveaway!
When the giveaway ends, Craftsy will let me know how many people entered, I'll choose a number at random, and they'll let me know who the winner is. I'll then notify that person and they'll drop the Kimberly Einmo class of the winner's choice directly into the winner's Craftsy account. How easy is that?
If you (like me!) already own both of Kimberly's classes in Craftsy, please please please be sure you spread the word to your friends, family members, in your guilds, and beyond that this giveaway is available. If you enjoyed Kimberly's class, think how much your BQF (best quilty friend) will enjoy it!
Not familiar with Craftsy? If you've been listening any time at all you know I'm a huge Craftsy fan--have been since I took my first class with them over a year ago. It's a great platform for learning. You need to give it a try. And what better way than by winning a free class?
So, use the link above to enter the giveaway, and then leave a comment below to be part of the conversation that is "Quilting...for the Rest of Us." Thanks for listening!
