Hands2Help - Getting Ready!!

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict
Hi, all!

It's that time again - time to do all the background work on the Hands2Help challenge, which will begin March 15th!  I've just updated the Page at the top of my blog with this year's charities and the calendar.  Now it's time to ask for your help!

I'm in need of five bloggers who would like to write a guest post for the Challenge.  You can write about anything you'd like, but here are some suggestions

 Your own personal charity efforts
A great recipe you love that allows you time to quilt
Your sewing space
How you deal with your scraps
Your favorite "go-to" quilt pattern
Your favorite sewing tip(s)

Let me know in the comments if you'd like to be an H2H guest blogger!  Be sure to leave an email address, too, to be sure I can reach you.  If you've done it in the past, and would like to do it again, that's great - just let me know!  UPDATE:  Thanks to a great response, all of this year's guest blogger slots are filled!  Woohoo!!

Also, in the past many of our H2H participants have also helped sponsor the Challenge by donating a prize or service.   Their generosity has made it possible for every participant to receive something at the end of the Challenge for the past three years!  If you'd like to be a sponsor, leave me a comment and a way to reach you.

Thanks for your help!  I hope you're all as excited about this year's Challenge as I am - it promises to be a great year!  Now I'm off to write our corporate sponsors….




  1. What is involved in being a sponsor, other than providing a door prize?

  2. Hi Sarah! I'd be happy to be a guest blogger and can provide a prize as well. Thanks!

  3. Hi Sarah - looking forward to another successful year of H2H ! And I'd love to be a guest blogger !

  4. I would love to do a guest post on dealing with scraps.

  5. Sarah I would love to geust post, probably about my studio space (I just redid it) or one about sewing room pets would be fun! (Help...I can't decide!) I also be glad to sponsor the event....I will offer to long arm one quilt. Email me and we can talk about the details. :) Looking forward to this event once again and proud to be a part of it. :)V

  6. Hi Sarah! I am thrilled to be part of this again and would love to write a guest post for you. Since I don't have pets, that topic wouldn't work for me, but I am willing to do any of the other topics. I'd also love to provide a door prize too. Is that what you mean by sponsor? Thanks for all the work you do for this. :-)

  7. Thank you for choosing Happy Chemo again. I can donate patterns again and be a guest blogger if you need.

  8. For a prize, I've got a lot of fabric. I'm thinking 1/8 yard cuts of 8 jewel tone fabrics...? What do you think?
    I'd love to write a guest post, but I just wrote the answer to each of your titles, and it only took me 24 words...

  9. I tried to use the new button, Sarah. It doesn't go anywhere yet.

  10. I don't know that I have anything new to guest post about but I would be happy to be a sponsor this year.

  11. I'd be happy to sponsor again this year. I'm in the middle of moving to Florida this week. Will let you know what next week or the week after if that is OK.


Comments make me smile!! If you want a PDF of a pattern, PLEASE leave your email address in your comment, or email me directly at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com!
