Blogathon Canada Kicks Off!

Welcome to Blogathon Canada! 

An online event where you can meets 100s of awesome Canadian Quilters and bloggers!

Travel with us as we go across the country to meet talented and passionate Canadian Quilters. Every day for the next week we are going to meet host bloggers from different provinces and territories across Canada who will share their stories, their work, their inspiration and their love of quilting. Each blogger will also host a giveaway of their favorite goodies from our store so you have a chance to win prizes all week!
Kicking of the celebration today is Michele from Quilting Gallery. Michele is a quilter and a web developer and combined her passion and her skill to start Quilting Gallery - a site dedicated to quilters and quilting. The site is a great resource for quilters, offering free projects and tutorials, tips and tricks, videos, guest posts, and even a world wide quilt shop locator!

 A year after she started Quilting Gallery Michele launched the Quilting Bloggers Directory - a way to connect quilting  bloggers from across the globe. The response has been tremendous! In 2008 - the year of the launch - 2800 bloggers from 61 countries joined the directory and now there are over 5500 blogs from 79 countries listed on the Quilting Bloggers Directory!

Be sure to check out Michele's post for Blogathon Canada on the Quilting Gallery Blog and if you have not added your blog to the Quilting Bloggers Directory... we suggest you do! :)

Michele is giving away a Sew Sisters Gift Certificate so be sure to visit her blog and leave a comment for a chance to win.
