Book Giveaway to Celebrate Sandy's Podcastaversary!

I've been listening to podcasts for so long now, I don't even remember how or why I got started with them. I started out listening to several Mom-oriented podcasts (Manic Mommies, Mommy Files, The Motherhood Trap, etc..) then broadened my listening to my hobbies of quilting and knitting. One of the first quilt podcasts I ever listened to was Quilting for the Rest of Us. Sandy's voice is so warm and friendly, you truly feel like you're listening to a friend talk about quilting with you. I remember being up at 3 am for another feeding, and even before I had the baby latch on, I had to make sure my earphones were in (they make that "R" and "L" way too small) and a podcast was queued up. Many times it was Sandy who gave me new insight into a topic I'd heard before.

She's celebrating 2 years on the air, and I couldn't be happier for her. As someone who also podcasts around a busy life, I know the time and dedication it takes to putting in just one or two episodes a month. Sandy has pretty consistently given us 4 episodes every month these last 2 years, and I couldn't be more grateful.

Sandy is having a huge week of giveaways, using her blog as the jump-off point. You've either landed here from there, or you need to head over there to check out everyone having some fun and giving stuff away.

For my giveaway I have a copy of a book that just went on sale:

Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison.

PLUS!!

To sweeten the giveaway with some fabric-y goodness, I have a charm pack of 
Aneela Hoey's adorable A Walk in the Woods line. 


How to enter to win both the book and charm pack:
GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
3 chances to win!
1. Leave a comment below telling me what, if any, podcasts you listen to.

2. Tweet about this giveaway, and come back to leave a comment saying you did.

Good luck and thanks for entering!

  8. I listen to all of the quilty ones, and also Greenstitch and iMake. Non-crafty podcasts include Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Vinyl Cafe, PRI's World in Words and Manager Tools.

    I think I have listened to every quilt podcast ever done. I bought my first Ipod when I heard Alex Anderson was going to do a podcast - and I didn't even know for sure what it was! I was immediately hooked.

  9. I've already entered the giveaway at Quilting for the Rest of Us. Now I'm on my way to the others. Thanks for doing this - you are all so generous!

  10. Thank you for the heads up Tanisha - I losten to Sandy and knew it was about this time but not exactly when. Looking forward to seeing what is happening over there. I listen to all the podcasts of you guys who met up the other day - Francis, Pam, AJ, Sandy and you. I feel I have missed someone but maybe that is just because I listen to so many quilty and knitting podcasts - Katie, Rhonda, Daisy; not to mention the knitting ones I listen to as well. You all keep me company and feel like a group of my friends. Thank you for all the hard work and time you put into the podcast. Oh and all the book giveaways you do! Lol. C x

  17. Embarrassingly enough, I don't tend to listen to podcasts. I much prefer reading because I'm faster at it than I am at listening. I have listened to Grammar Girl's podcasts and have shared them with students. I will try to go for yours and some of the others mentioned and see if I can become a better listener.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Entered the giveaway at Pat Sloan's.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my I listen to a bunch while I'm sewing or while I wait during DS karate practice. Some I enjoy include Crafty Garden Mom (of course), Off Kiter Quilt, Quilting For The Rest of Us, Lazy Daisy, Hip To Be A Square, Katie's Quilting Corner, Greenstitch and Pat Sloan at All People Quilt. I miss Annie Smith since she has not had one in a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm pretty sure I listen to all the quilting podcasts! And, you know, host one, too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. And I entered Susan's giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh boy, thanks for the opportunity. I've definitely been eyeing that book, and the fabric as well, it just so happens. I so agree about how close you start to feel to the podcasteres you listen to... Because its such an intimate thing, while I walk or sew or knit or clean its just my friend in my ears and myself. It's lovely, I'm not sure what I did before. I know I never watch TV anymore! I just looked and saw that I actually subscribe to 88 podcasts! And I just went through and got rid of a few I rarely listened to! Needless to say I've got most of those listed above covered, but I've somehow missed Quilter in the Gap! I'm going to rectify that situation right now! Thanks again, sorry so long!

I also listen to all the quilt related podcasts already mentioned, plus some that are more craft related, like The Knit Wits (haven't had a new episode in ages) and Happy Crafter 207, Green Stitch, and Stitching 'n' Junk. There are a lot of podcasts I listen to that have nothing to do with crafting, like Mugglecast, Mail Order Zombie, Stuff you missed in History Class, Mental Illness Happy Hour, H.P.Podcraft.. so many! I listen to podcasts every single day. I'm addicted.
