Thank you to everyone providing prizes because I am going to visit each and every one of you to see if you have something I have to have. And a big thank you to Miss Carole for coming up with fun projects and one of the best blogs online. I love your Oliver stories, recipes, and garden pictures that you post along with your crafting wisdom.

    Carole, Your Autumn Jubilee has always been great. Have been following you for about 8 years. Looking forward to this Jubilee and has great sponsors!

    1. I’m so glad you are doing your Autumn Jubilee again Carole. I always have so much fun reading along and I also manage to make some of your fun, creative projects. I love the fall especially after a summer filled with extreme heat and so many wildfires.

  15. While I don’t “play” along I do think it is wonderful you do this. It is especially nice that your sponcers are so giving. I will be checking out all of the showtime events.

  16. Patricia Evans

    Great list of sponsors, thanks for your creativity and hard work !!

  20. Julie

    Yippee, starting early! Took me forever to comment, already stopping at a few sponsors. This year I want to try a wool project. All I had to work with last year was leftover craft felt from kid projects. I stopped at JoAnns on Monday I bought the autumn shopping bag, it says “Fall is my Season”. My daughter said it was made for me. Ready to ride the Autumn Jubilee with everyone, thanks for all the fun, Carole.

  21. Checked out the “rules and notices” so that I will not be disqualified from having a chance to win one of these fantastic prizes. What a great list of vendors. Thanks for all the hard work you put into the Autumn Jubilee! Looking forward to it.

  22. Jean McKinstry

    What a grand list of so generous sponsors, I think I might join in from way down south, as we head into spring, I so enjoy seeing your Autumn Jubilee again this year, with those rich tones in fabrics and leaves.

  23. I already love the things you post. This looks so amazing and I am excited to get some fall things. I can smell the cinnamon and pumpkin spice already. Autumn is MY favorite time of the year.

  24. Bobbie Woodruff

    Wow, sounds like a very exciting month. I’ll be sure to get to your blog everyday.
    I’ve read the rules and some of the things you do for entering the give a ways. I’m not very iPad savvy. I don’t know what sidebars are. I don’t do anything but Facebook so can’t enter on other sites. I’m 76 and all this computer stuff is a little over my head.
    I love looking at your blog, your table scapes are beautiful. You are so crafty. I only quilt and I’m not fast at that. I’ve never entered anything in a fair. You did wonderful this year in yours.
    Do you ever sale a paper copy of your patterns I can’t figure out how to download them on my I pad. So I never buy PDF on line.
    Have a great day. Looking forward to all the great things on your blog this coming month.

  25. Susan

    Sounds like an interesting month ahead. I have read and understand the rules. Your sponsors are very generous. I don’t do any social media so won’t be able to enter those. It is nice that you have some of the giveaways directly on your blog. Sounds like something for everyone.

  26. That’s quite a list of sponsors, and such great prizes. I look forward to Autumn Jubilee each year and this is going to be a fun time. I’ve looked over the sponsors and will be visiting them to check out their offerings.

  27. Joan

    This is my first time participating – I just discovered your blog. Thank you for what I am sure will be an exciting month of creativity! I can’t wait!

  28. Melanie

    Yes, excited to once again see what your Autumn Jubilee is going to present!! I just placed an order for wool felt, and excited to see this sponsor–I love working with wool and wool felt. Thanks for the fun projects and interesting information you present. (Watch for my pkg. to you on Friday.)
    :o) m

  29. Mary D.

    Looking forward to another Autumn Jubilee! I enjoy the fun & easy quilt alongside. Thanks so much for providing this fun time!

  30. Jennie Cruzan

    This is my third year to join in on all the fun. Great sponsors and love the products. Thank you Carole for all the hard work you put into this project.

  31. Oh my goodness, Carole! You have managed to get quite the line-up of sponsors this year! I love this event every year and am quite excited to begin. I’ve updated the button on my sidebar just now and I’m ready for the kick-off tomorrow! Woot! Woot!

  32. Pat Semeraro

    What great prizes! Thank you to all the sponsors for making this such a special sewing event for Carole’s followers.

  33. BarbCorry

    I am always amazed at the diversity and depth of your blog. The Autumn Jubilee is so much fun. Thanks for all the effort you take to entertain and enlighten us, your readers.

  34. quilter4

    Have you’all read the rules of the Autumn Jubilee. So many hoops to go thru and so many social media sites to go thru: instagram, facebook, etc just to be entered into the raffle. Sorry but I just may watch and not enter – too many hoops to go thru.

    1. Good Morning,
      The extra things like visiting Instagram are only to get you extra entries, you do not have to do that to be entered. All that is needed is to leave a comment, then click on the rafflecopter icon and say you commented. That’s it. If you want extra entries, there are more things you can do, but only if you wish, it is not a requirement.

  35. Judy

    Autumn (the start of the school year) used to be my favorite season. But, as a Winter myself, I do not like the Autumn colors usually. However, I love decorating the table for the season so will be excited to make the newest table topper.

  36. Glenda Schreiber

    Wow this is my first Autumn Jubilee so I’m abit overwhelmed and hope I do this all correctly. You’ve got some great prizes with a few of those companies being totally new to me, so I cannot wait to check them out. Thanks for all the great blogs and emails, I enjoy reading and seeing all you are doing. I do love to be inspired!

  37. lee

    Fabulous sponsors – a huge thank you – what great offerings! This Jubilee looks like the best of fun! Thank you Carole!

  38. I was just reminded of this fun October activity, which I’ve read before but not really joined in on. This year I hope to participate in the autumnal excitement though getting a bit of a late start. Thanks for doing this.
