Do you like watching the Oscars, Golden Globes or other awards ceremonies, where the best of the best are recognized for their contributions?
I’ve been dreaming of the day when those involved in the world of quilting would receive reconition, similar to the Oscars or Golden Globes, but as “my” golden years have arrived and I’m still not seeing appropriate recognition for those that have made significant contributions in the world of quilting, SewCalGal has decided to host the 2010 Golden Quilter Awards!
Anyone can nominate a candidate who has made a difference in the world of quilting. Key awards will be given for the following categories for 2009 that are the most inspiring :
3) Author: Most inspirational
4) Quilt Store (physical)
5) Quilt Store (online)
6) Best Long Arm Quilter
7) Most Innovative new product (physical item)
8) Most Innovated new product (software item)
9) Most influential person in the world of quilting to-date, aka “Lifetime Achievement”.
Are you aware that March is considered National Quilting Month?
Winners of the Golden Quilter Awards will be selected during March, as part of the National Quilting Month.
Anyone can nominate a candidate for the various categories of the Golden Quilter Awards. Simply send your nomination to SewCalGal via email or placing a comment on this post.
Top nominations for the Golden Quilter Awards will be shared in March, whereby viewers will be able to vote for their favorites.
SewCalGal is looking for sponsors of the various award categories. Sponsors may choose what their award to the winner may be. It may be simply recognition on a blog, with a detailed interview of the winner, and/or a plaque that is given to the winner, a gift to the winner, or even a giveway that is in honor of the winner. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of one of these award categories please contact SewCalGal. Sponsors will be announced and recognized in future updates about the Golden Quilter Awards.
In the near future SewCalGal will have a badge for this event, and is hoping that others will share insight on their blogs, tweets, facebook and emails. To clarify, SewCalGal wants to facilitate recognition of those that have made a difference in the world of quilting, and it seems that March (National Quilting Month) is a perfect time to hold such recognition. I just hope you’ll want to participate and encourage others to do so.
Again, let me know who you want to nominate…and if you want to be a sponsor for one of these awards. Volunteer graphic artists also appreciated.
I’ll share more info soon, but if you have a favorite for the categories I’ve listed and you want to nominate them for the 2010 Golden Quilter Award, please feel free to leave a comment on this post or email me.
Anyone that nominates a candidate for the Golden Quilter Award is also automatically entered in my giveaway. For more insight on this giveaway: http://tinyurl.com/yzk6sks
