Autumn Jubilee Starts Today!

Autumn Jubilee is back for the third year with a line up of giveaway prizes that is just fantastic!  This event is growing every year, and just keeps getting better and more exciting.  This year will see the return of some of my favorite vendors and some new additions that you will love!  The prizes will be spread out through the month of October, with most of the drawings open for seven days.  There are a number that are open to international winners as well.  We’ll have a Quilt Along, a Sew Along, a Stitch Along, all with free patterns and posts on gardening, cooking, tablescapes, cardmaking and more!!  There are prizes for every post this month, and each post will give the details about how to enter.  Please join me in thanking all these wonderful sponsors.

Leading off the list of fabulous prizes, our grand prize by premier sponsor Hobbs Batting is not one, not two, but FOUR battings from their Tuscany line to one very lucky winner!! That lucky winner will receive one Tuscany Silk Throw, one Tuscany Wool Throw, one Tuscany Cotton Wool Throw, and one NEW Tuscany SUPREME Cotton Twin size batting.  Yes, all four premier battings to one winner!!  And, they will ship internationally, so everyone can enter!!  Thank you, Hobbs!!  I also want to thank Hobbs again for their outstanding support of our Carolina Hurricane quilts project that began in September, and we will pick up again after Autumn Jubilee.

Returning Premier sponsor Aurifil will once again send a large spool box of their fabulous threads to a lucky winner, international entries welcome!  The collection this year is called Festive, and has the lovely colors of Autumn.

Fat Quarter Shop is upping the ante this year with two gift certificates for $50 each to two lucky winners.  International entries welcome here too!!

Stampin’ Up! is back with a fabulous collection of stamps and papers to create lovely cards for Autumn and Thanksgiving called Country Lane.  I had to order these stamps for myself, and I’ll show you my cards using this set later in the month.  You can find a demonstrator near you with their demonstrator locator on their website.  Stampin’ Up! is giving away the stamp set with the papers too!!

New sponsor Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street will sponsor the cooking post for the Jubilee with a giveaway of their newest cookbook, Tuesday Nights!!  Visit their website for recipes from the show, and lots more.  I am delighted to have them on board, I have been a Christopher Kimball fan for years!  This book publishes on October 16th, but you can pre-order now on Milk Street, or by using my affiliate link with Amazon – Milk Street Tuesday Nights.  The book has over 200 recipes that take one hour or less to make, many around a half hour!   Shipping to US residents only.

Another new sponsor this year, Madam Sew will give away a fantastic 32-piece Ultimate Presser Feet set, with an instructional DVD.  The feet are universal, and with the adapter can fit any machine.  I’ve written a few articles for Madam Sew’s blog, and there are lots of fun projects there.  Madam Sew will ship anywhere in the world!!

Quilter’s Dream will send a Dream Orient Queen Size batting to the drawing winner.  I love this bamboo blend, perfect for wall hangings and lightweight quilts!!

Backside Fabrics will award a $25 Gift Certificate for their gorgeous wide backing fabric, your choice.  I want to again acknowledge and thank Christine at Backside Fabrics for also supporting our Carolina Hurricane quilts project with backing fabric for all five quilts we plan to make.  More on this after Autumn Jubilee.

New Sponsor Costa Farms is going to send a gorgeous Red Aglaonema houseplant to a lucky winner for our gardening post!   The plant has such pretty color leaves,  perfect for Autumn.  Due to legal restrictions, they cannot ship to California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, or locations outside of the United States, but everyone else is eligible.  See their website for an outstanding plant finder with an awesome amount of information on growing all kinds of plants.

Returning sponsor Moda Fabrics has a layer cake and a fun Moda bag for two lucky winners.  Each winner will receive one layer cake, and the bag that says “I Dream of Moda”.  I do, don’t you?  International entries welcome as I am shipping these myself!

    I’m really looking forward to this. You have some wonderful sponsors and thank you for all your hard work. As good as the lighting is on my machine it can always be improved.

  2. Sue

    I’ve read your blog off and on for awhile, but just subscribed this summer so haven’t been here for Autumn Jubilee before…sounds like lots of fun!

  3. mlmcspadden

    Fantastic sponsors for the Autumn Jubilee. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in the giveaway and QAL.

  4. These are some wonderful prizes from great companies! The LED lights look very helpful for these aging eyes. Looking forward to all of the projects, too. Thank you for all your efforts for this event and all you do!

  5. Lesley Gilbert

    Wonderful start to the Autumn Jubillee with great donations from all those companies. As far as I know, these lights are not suitable for the UK because of the voltage, which is a pity. So I won’t be clicking the raffle-copter but good luck to whoever wins them 🙂


    WOW, you have been busy. I am in charge of door prizes for guild events, so I know you have put a lot of work into this great month. This is my second year following you. Thanks!

  7. Donna Weeks

    Looking forward to this project and the chance to win one of the fabulous prizes you have. Donna weeks (aka Momma Llama)

  8. Hello Carole, I’m looking forward to this QAL, Autumn Jubilee. You and your sponsors have great giveaways too, and I love how our “quilt-y community” is always there for each other!

  9. Karen Addleman

    Great sponsors for the autumn jubilee. I especially like the first giveaway because my aging eyes can use some extra lighting.

  10. Dian

    Carole, I am looking forward to Autumn Jubilee even though the weather here in Wisconsin has thus far skipped Fall and is heading right to Winter. Hoping for a turn around that will make Indian summer happen. wonderful list of giveaways!

  11. Suzan DeSerres

    So excited that Autumn Jubilee is starting again! I’d sure love to have some better lighting for my machine…Wonderful sponsors and amazing gifts – thanks to all! Looking forward to seeing what comes next.

  12. lewisnancy54

    I am so excited to be able to join this QAL. The sponsors are amazing!! Thanks so much for all your hard work.

  13. Lynne Mulder

    Yeah for Autumn! The lighting at my machine is great when the sun shines in the mornings. Unfortunately with all the soggy weather we have been having it could really use some improvement!

  14. The lighting at my sewing machine does need something closer in my eye view. I have a floor lamp that I can bend; however, I do need something more like an LED light. Thank you.

  15. nicholsas

    Looking forward to all things Autumn, especially the Autumn Jubilee. Thanks to all your sponsors!!!!!

  16. Wow, wow, WOW! What a great lineup of sponsors! Between the Hobb’s batting and the Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street cookbook (I’ve followed Kimball since Cook’s Illustrated was first published in the 90’s) and all the other great prizes, my head is spinning!!! LOL! Thanks so much! 🙂

  17. Robin Thompson

    I just found this site and love the inspiration (and sponsors of Jubilee) Thank you from Gettysburg PA

  18. I have been looking forward to seeing the Autumn Jubliee. I can use additional autumn colors in my home.
    The lighting in my sewing room is not good. I keep adding addition lights but since there is no overhead lighting in the room it never seems to be enough.

  19. lv2bquilting2

    That’s quite the list of prizes Carole, all of which are definitely coveted by all quilters. I have an overhead fluorescent light and a goose neck LED which give me the light I need for sewing and quilting.

  20. Debbie Miller Meyer

    So many wonderful sponsors, thank you, thank you, thank you to each and everyone of them. So appreciative and also to Carole for hosting this grand event again. Looking forward to all the fun! Thanks again!!

  21. Linda

    Autumn is my favorite time of year and you just made it even better! A huge thank you to the sponsors and to you!!

  22. Diane Pickthall

    My first Autumn Jubilee and I love the sound of it already. The sponsors are terrific and their gifts wonderful!

  23. Debra Miller

    It is definitely Autumn this morning with the coolness here in the air. Looking forward to the Jubilee and thanks to you and all the wonderful prize sponsors!

  24. Toni Anne Potter

    I love autumn it’s my favorite time of year. Thanks to you and all the sponsors. This sounds like so much fun, I’m finishing my Halloween quilt hopefully this week.

  25. Linda Lou Harris

    I am blown away by all the prizes and fun you have set up for us this month. Let the fun begin.

  26. Kate Agar-Ross

    So excited about this Jubilee tried to write in the blog post earlier and couldn’t. Lighting for sewing is a huge issue.

  27. Carolyn Montgomery

    at my sewing machine i have a swing arm lamp from ott, an led gooseneck from ikea, an led bulb in the machine, and i sit right next to a window for natural light.

  28. Karen Williams

    I always look forward to your posts. They are like having a conversation. The topics keep changing, but the joy and friendship is always there.

  29. marie Tate

    I’m really impressed with all these companies contributing their products, so generous of them.
    The lighting is sure needed in my sewing room, thanks for the opportunity to win it.

  30. Anne

    I refer to your binding tutorial #3 all the time. Thanks for the dedication to your blog! Thanks for this giveaway!

  31. Mary C

    I have overhead LED lights on my 2 ceiling fans; 6 can LED lights; 4 windows, an over the shoulder LED light and an extra LED light on my sewing machine. I is so important for me to have good lighting.

  32. BJ

    Oh wow – what a terrific group of generous sponsors! I’m almost done with quilted Christmas gifts for this year, so the timing couldn’t be better to make some things for myself.

  33. So excited for the 3rd Autumn Jubilee. I’m recovering from Knee Replacement, so my just be an observer, but can’t wait to see what you have in store for us! My sewing machine sits in front of an East facing window, so I love the morning sun when stitching, but afternoons and evenings I need all the light I can get! You have some marvelous sponsors. Thank you and your sponsors for making Fall Fun!!

    1. Rhonda Pecenka

      And the lighting in my sewing room is a little hokey but I manage. As I get older I need more and more light.

  34. ANN D

    My lighting is pretty good in my sewing room but it would be nice to have more light at my sewing machine. Thanks for the chance to win.

  35. Susan Stanton

    Sew excited for your Autumn Jubilee posts to begin and to see what you have in store for us! It’s always a pleasure to read your blog.

  36. Melody A.

    Looks like it is going to be Fantastic!!! thank you for all the time you invest to make this happen!
    Happy Sewing from Iowa

  37. Kathryn Laposata

    I just bought new overhead lighting for my sewing space. Now I think I need the same thing for my cutting table.

  38. debby

    I read each blog post but haven’t sewn along with the Autumn Jubilee but it sounds like fun, so count me in! Very excited for what is to come. Thanks for hosting and thank you to all the sponsors.

  39. Donna W

    This sounds so exciting! Really looking forward to reading and learning from all of the posts.
    Thanks for all of your hard work in putting this together

  40. Lori Smanski

    Oh my goodness, this is wonderful.
    Thanks to you for hosting and to all the vendors who graciously have given something.
    My lighting is OK by my sewing machine. Where the needle is could use a lot more light.

  41. You caught me with Autumn Jubilee. I’m all in. But yourQuilt Along, a Sew Along, a Stitch Along, all with free patterns and posts on gardening, cooking, tablescapes, cardmaking all sound llike great creative fun. Looking forward to it.

  42. Wow! I didn’t remember what a big thing the Autumn Jubilee involved. Lots of sponsors and I bet lots of inspiration ahead. Thank you for hosting! I checked out a couple of the links. I would love to try that bamboo batting and the Backside Fabrics is just what I need. I have enough stash but the right backings are harder to come by. This is a great source!

  43. Michele T

    The lighting on my sewing machine is not too great… I was noticing this yesterday when I was quilting on black fabric with black thread… it really stressed my eyes.

  44. Heidi

    Yesterday I pulled the Woolie Candle Mat I made during last year’s Jubilee, it is so cute! Thanks for all your work Carole, hope you have a wonderful season.

  45. Mary Walsh

    I am so excited to start. I’m a big fan of your Scrap Dance and Autumn Jubilee mysteries, quilt alongs, etc. Let the fun begin!!

  46. My current sewing machine lighting – depends on which machine I’m using! But with my cataracts being removed next month I hope the situation will improve. Looking forward to jubilee and will keep up as best I can.

  47. Well the weather got cold and rainy today, so Autumn Jubilee will make things brighter. My sewing machine bulb was replace with an LED, but I could always use more light.

  48. Teri c

    Looks like autumn! My sewing machine lighting depends on what room the machine can be set up in. Definitely could use more light.

  49. EllenB

    Fabulous giveaways, but Autumn is my favorite time of year. The colors, cool weather, soft sweaters, and comfy sweats!

  50. Helen Glover

    What a perfect fall project! Amazing gifts from great sponsors. Love them all! Thanks for doing this again this year. Your quilts are beautiful and fall colors are my favorites!

  51. Christine Young

  61. Thank you so much Carole, and thanks to the very generous offer from the vendors/sponsors. Its great to be able to enter as an International quilter!

  62. Laura M

    I really enjoy your blog posts all year round. Thank you.
    The lighting on my sewing machine is quite poor, even though I’ve added a light. I’d love to try the new LED strips.

  63. Sarah Gray

    Autumn is my favourite month. Those LED lights look great for my senior eyes. Looking forward to the rest of Autumn Jubilee.

  64. Connie Jordan

    Autumn Jubilee is always so much fun, let the party begin! Thank you to you and all of your sponsors providing these nice prizes.

  65. I have awesome lighting at my sewing machine AND on my long arm machine, because I already have InspiredLED lights there. But if I win, I’ll take it to church and put it on one of our machines there. InspiredLED sewing machine lights ROCK!

  68. Elizabeth V K

    Wow! Great prizes from your wonderful sponsors. I enjoy all that you share and look forward to more Autumn Jubilee posts.

  69. Hi Carole! I cannot believe it is time for the Autumn Jubilee already. This year is just flying by. My goodness you have a whole bunch of fabulous sponsors for this year. Thank you to them and to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

  70. Donna C

    Autumn is my favorite time of the year and the Jubilee is very exciting. Thanks to all the sponsors and you for all your hard work.

  71. Patricia Evans

    Well, my pumpkins and maple leaves from last year are still just blocks, but I’ll follow along to see what you’re up to. This is always an inspiring event.

  72. Rhonda Snider

    You have done so much work on this! I am truly impressed by all the sponsors. The lighting would make sewing even more enjoyable.

  73. Peggy

    Wow Carole, you have pulled out all the stops ! Amazing sponsors and prizes! I was new to your site about the time of last years Autumn Jubilee. Since then have been an avid follower and cannot wait to see how this years program turns out.
    Thank you kindly for all your hard work, inspiring, informing, instructing. You are so genuine and I love reading your blog!

  74. shoshana

    i’ve been waiting for this since last year!!! and no, the light at my sewiing machine is never enough!!!! i’m always moving the table closer to the bright spot in the room.

  75. Oh my goodness, Carole, you and the sponsors have outdone yourself this year! Wow! I always need more light, at the sewing machine, on the couch, in the bathroom….its a never ending problem!! 🙂

  76. I always look forward to and enjoy Autumn Jubilee. The lighting at my sewing machine is OK, but not really bright enough. LED would probably work better.

  77. Christine Sullivan

    What a fantastic line-up of sponsors and generous prizes! The light kit would be a most welcome for my sewing machine. Thank you for all the hard work.

  78. Carol Kennedy

    I just found your blog a few months ago and love it! Looking forward to getting through all the previous posts for inspiration.

    My sewing room faces west, so sewing in the morning is a bit difficult. LED lighting would certainly help out with that.

  79. Sharon

    HI Carole,,,
    I don’t understand how the Autumn Jubilee works,… how do we participate? Have I missed something?

  80. Mary D

    Excited to start this years Autumn Jubilee! Thank-you to all the sponsors that add a wonderful and fun element to this quilt along.

  81. dezertsuz

    It’s a fabulous line up of sponsors, and something for everyone’s interests. There’s not a prize there anyone wouldn’t be happy to win. I have been looking forward to it, but the first sneaked right in when I wasn’t looking!

    Not sure what I am doing, but here’s a comment about Autumn Jubilee…… Have followed all the Scrap Dance patterns.
