The Wait is Over and the Winner is....



Good afternoon,
This has been a lot of fun and a lot of work. I had 173 people who enter my give away. 163 by leaving comments, 10 by sending emails. Of those 173 entries 48 of them went the extra mile and won an extra point by posting something on their blogs. My spread sheet is 4 pages long, plus I sent an email to everyone who wrote a comment or sent an email. Of the 173 there were 13 people who left a comment that did not send me your email address, so you did not hear from me, sorry. So lesson learned, always be sure that some one has your email address.

The lucky winner, as you can see by my spreadsheet won EQ7 on her extra point, she posted something on her blog. Her name is Ann and her blog is Renegade Quilter. She is vacationing right now in St. John, US Virgin Islands,according to her blog. I don't know when she will see her email and this post but I will share with all what she has to say when I hear from her. What I did if you are interested is I gave everyone one number and then I assigned the second number to those who qualified. My thinking was the numbers would be more varied.

Here is the Random Number Generator I used showing the lucky number.



For the rest of you, I'm sorry I didn't have more copies to give away, so order quickly from Electric Quilt while the special price is still on until May 31st, but don't forget that here in the USA, the 31st is a legal Holiday, for Memorial Day.

Such a fun giveaway.

Too bad about those people that are no-reply bloggers and want to win a contest. I wish everyone would check their settings to verify they can be contacted, or leave their email address when they enter.

Congrats to Ann the winner! I still want a copy of this amazing software someday, but I need to make sure it will work on my Mac computer first. Our embroidery software works on the Mac using VMware Fusion... I joined a yahoo group (EQonMACS) so I can monitor what other people are finding out.. someday...

Congratulations to Ann and many thanks to you Mary Elizabeth and the EQ people for a really fun giveaway. I enjoyed reading about how you did your giveaway. You were very thorough and fair, I though. What a lot of work! Thanks again!
