Blogathon Canada is coming up, and yours truly will be one of this year's hosts! Sew Sisters, a wonderful Toronto-based quilt shop, is sponsoring this online festival for the third year running in order to celebrate quilting in Canada (hooray for the land of the maple leaf!). For each day of the Blogathon, two quilters will post about their own work and also provide links to quilters in their home provinces. Fun and exciting giveaways will abound as well! Giveaways will take place in both the individual quilters' blog entries and on the Sew Sisters blog, thanks to the generosity of Aurifil, Northcott, and Robert Kaufman, along with Sew Sisters. (Breaking news on 11/7--Camelot Fabrics and Timeless Treasures have joined in as well--I'm giddy at the thought of all of the forthcoming giveaways!) If you're a Canadian blogger, you can link up as well: see the Blogathon announcement over at Sew Sisters for details. I don't know exactly what's in store, so I'm waiting with just as much anticipation as everyone else!
