A Gigi's Thimble Interview and Giveaway @ Pastimes Online

A few weeks ago, Valerie from Pastimes Online contacted me about doing an e-interview.  With a little trepidation about sounding like a complete moron, I went out on a limb and said yes [I figure, I already make a fool out of myself on this blog, one more piece of cyberspace won't kill me!]



Find out who inspires me, what music I like to listen to when I'm stitchin' away, life before Gigi's Thimble, and more. You can even read a little more about my traumatic visit to Canada that I've mentioned once before on this blog.  This is my first interview so I hope you enjoy it!  Valerie has a great online store and blog.  There are lots of fun projects going on over there so check it out!  Oh, and be sure to leave a comment and you'll be entered to win a set of Gigi's Thimble patterns!  The giveaway ends Friday.

I just read Val's post a few minutes ago! It's a GREAT interview Amber! You came across very well and I love the story about how you learned to quilt. It really touches me when I hear someone learned to quilt from their grandmother. I didn't get that experience because my Grandmother died when I was 8. If she had lived, I know she would have taught me. I'm planning on teaching my nieces so I'll have that end of the experience.

Hello Amber, thanks for posting about your e-Interview here also. You were such a delight to interview and I'm so loving your patterns, we should maybe talk a little bit (privately) and go from there :) Let's do the draw tomorrow morning before my meeting out of the office at 11:30 - sound good?
Keep in touch, my wonderful bog friend and inspiration. I have a few patterns out but feel a bit inferior next to yours :) I'm going to do some revising.
Thanks again for taking the time to do this with me I LOVED it!!
