Time sure flys when your having fun and I suspect that ya’ll are having fun. We are in Day 08 of the row along and it just seems to have flown right by these past 7 days, even tho it’s been 23 days since the row along started.
Please note, that reports from others have it that my yahoo email address is being sent to spam/junk folders, please check those folders if you see your first name and your last initial to see if you are the winner. I only give winners 3 days to let me know they want there prize after this the prize is redrawn. This is clearly stated in the rules for giveaways also. I use my yahoo address because I’ve been having issues with my gmail address not sending properly.
On another note, I am sorry, but as I noted on the first day of this row along, designers are only obligated to keep there patterns free for one week after there featured day. After this day they are free to do what they like with there patterns, put them up for sale, remove them or continue to offer them on there site freely. This rule was changed 2 years ago in 2017, it was unfair to ask designers who started the event to keep there patterns free for the whole event when designers who ended the event only had to do it for a week, so the rule was changed so that it is fair to all designers. It is up to you, to visit the sites each week to download the patterns.
This is the one event each year where I try very hard to cover each blogger/designer with a giveaway from one of the wonderful companies I’ve been priveleged to work with over these last five years on my blog. Some of these companies have participated in every event I’ve offered, while others have participated in every row along. I’m always looking for new companies, but to be honest, I love working with companies whose products I do use. With that said, these are this year’s companies who are sponsoring wonderful giveaways for you to enjoy and use yourself even after the Once Upon A Story Row Along becomes part of history…
Special Thank You’s to Northcott Fabrics for providing up to a yard of fabric to each of the blogger/designers. They have done this every year of the row along with the exception of one and that’s only because I didn’t ask them to. However, they have provided a giveaway for every year of the row along.
Each companies giveaway is described in this post below, go have a look, I know you want to see the goodies coming to you when you enter the giveaways at each designers post on her featured day.
