Tuesday Preview CQT Episode 027

Kristy's Quilt 
The Picture Book Project

Join us this week for our 27th Episode of Canadian Quilt Talk as we discuss the brand new children's picture book called Kristy's Quilt. You can be the first to get your hands on a copy before it hits the store shelves this spring. Here's how it works…

1. UNDERSTAND OUR GOAL: To engage a youthful generation of quilters by publishing the book and getting it into the hands of children. 

2. BACK THE PROJECT: Valentine's Day (FEB. 14TH).

3. GET YOUR BOOK AND REWARDS before it's in stores this spring.

Kristy's Quilt is a heartwarming quilt adventure based on a true story. This children's book features 10 year old Kristy, a spunky little quilter, who blossoms at the In Stitches Quilting Retreat. 
A book for ages 2 - 92.

Kristy's Quilt is a Kickstarter project, which is crowdfunding. If you haven't heard of it, check out 7 Things to Know About Kickstarter.  It's a really cool concept. 

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE in creating a youthful generation of quilters by supporting this project. Our plain and simple goal is to publish the book and get it into the hands of children. I would really love your support and here's what you can do: 

1. LISTEN TO CANADIAN QUILT TALK this week to learn more about the story and why it is so important to share quilting with a younger generation. 

2. MARK FEBRUARY 14th ON YOUR CALENDAR and back the project at the rewards level of your choice. 

3. SHARE THE KRISTY'S QUILT PROJECT on your blog, or anywhere you play on social media, but BEST OF ALL by word of mouth to your friends. 

Kristy's Quilt has been a "big picture" goal of mine for 4 years and I'm asking you to help take me there, but it's not about me at all. It's about quilters sharing quilting for generations to come.  Please circle Feb. 14th on your calendar to support our project and get the word out about Kristy's Quilt.
