Thoughts on Sponsors

I've thought about blog sponsorship for a long, long time. It's my fourth year running Quilty Habit and being involved with the online quilting community (I can't believe it's been that long already!). Thanks to all of you and your encouragement, my blog has grown a lot, and there is so much to come in the next few months! No matter what, though, I'm still mostly blogging selfishly,  to keep a record of all my projects and to blab about what's on my mind. It's a huge plus when you guys contribute :D (as in, I love the community and the friends I have made!).

My Sunnyside fat quarter bundle by Kate Spain. Just because it's pretty and posts are more fun with pictures!


I have begun to accept sponsors on my blog for two reasons: 1) to offset quilting costs and 2) to spread the word about some of the great shops I shop with. If you would like to sponsor my blog and/or you want to learn more about what I offer sponsors, please visit my Sponsors and Disclosure tab.

To be clear, I in no way foresee advertisements taking over this blog. I don't expect that it will change the content of my blog much at all; being honest, open, and keeping my voice is much more important to me overall. I will only be partnering up with shops that I wholeheartedly would recommend to you, based on my own experience. I just love how accessible and easy online fabric shopping has become, and I hope you'll share that with me. I'm starting small to see how sponsorship works for me and my blog. Please join me in welcoming my first sponsor tomorrow! Tonight was the CJMQG meeting and this president needs to sleep for a long time... :P.

  4. Congratulations on your growth! I buy almost all of my horde, er, I mean stash, yes, stash, from Hawthorne Threads. I love their tiered pricing. I now get about $.50/yard off with my buying history and amount I buy each time. Their shipping is amazing, too! They're on the North East Coast and I'm on the South West Coast and I get my packages in no more than 3 days, sometimes 2. I love Lindsay and Charlie..8-)
