  6. Show Voter #3:anyone that takes time to view quilts and vote for their favorites, per the categories stated, is eligible for this category of prize.

Random prizes will also be given to those that come visit the show.  You can get entries by:

1) Leaving a comment on any of SewCalGal’s posts about the show.  Just be sure that when you leave the comment you have read all the rules.  You may also want to look at the list of prizes and let me know what prizes you might be interested in winning, should you win.  For example, your comment might be:  Having fun at the show.  Mary (#6, #19, #31), so that I know Mary is particularly interested in winning prize #6, #19, or #31.

2) Being a follower of SewCalGal and leave a comment letting me know you are a follower and visiting the show.

3) IF you visit all the entries in the show leave a comment to let me know you have done so, and how many you visited.  You’ll also need to leave a comment on each of the show entries’ blog posts!  But, be aware that if you post this comment too early, and more entries are added, you can not repost.  Ultimately, you want to post this comment on the last day of the show, where you have a greater chance of visiting all the entries.  As such, you’ll be eligible for a special prize!

But, when you enter you need to be sure I can easily contact you if you win.  For those that leave comments Anonymously and do not leave a way I can contact you, as well as those with no-reply settings on their comments, they will be disqualified from winning prizes.

Shortly after the show closes on the 21st, a post will be made to announce the winners.  The winners will have five days to claim their prizes, or another name will be drawn for that prize.

It may seem complicated to review all the rules, categories of prizes, list of prizes, show entries, etc.  But, just like visiting any big show there is a lot to see and do.  Always easy to overlook a great opportunity and later be sorry, thus I hope you’ll take time to review these tips, if you want to increase your chances for winning prizes in this show.

I hope you are enjoying the Pets on Quilts Show.  I know I am.
