Time For a Quilt Market AllegroFabrics Blog CONTEST!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v114/linda00000/LOGOS/pincushion.png?t=1274314270

I think a fun little contest with a giveaway is in order! 
AllegroFabrics is at Quilt Market in Minneapolis!  We are settling in and enjoying the view from the 20th floor. We are looking forward to a busy day tomorrow at The Schoolhouse...hoping to learn all I can from the experts.  I am for sure going to listen to Patty Young talk all about working with knits.  I will pass on all the info to you tomorrow night.  
So, yes, A CONTEST!!!!!
I would love to have you comment here on my blog.  Once I get 100 comments total (from 100 different individuals) at the bottom of this post and the ones that follow, I will have a random drawing.  The winner will get a $20.00 AllegroFabrics Gift Certificate.
  Please please put your email address at the end of your post!  Write the word "dot" instead of using a dot...
