    I won the AQS Ford Focus at Grand Rapids, MI, quilt show

    I attended the 2012 American Quilting Society Quilt Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan with friends on Thursday to view the amazing, beautiful quilts and I was not disappointed. Creative, inspiring and a fun filled day of shopping and fellowship with other quilters who understand my obsession as normal I filled out one slip for the car give-away and put it in the box. On Saturday at 2pm, President of AQS, Meredith Schroeder, drew my slip out of a trunk full of entries. She called me to tell me I had won the car and I was so surprised I asked her, " Is this for real, how do I know it's not a scam." Well what a thing to say but they e-mailed me a picture of her drawing my name. I picked up the AQS Ford Focus 30 minutes before the closing of the show. It was real and Meredith is a wonderfully sweet lady. Look for a picture on the AQS website of Meredith handing me the keys to the AQS Ford Focus. Or come up to me and say hello if you see the AQS Ford Focus at a quilt shop near you. It is the first time I have won anything big. I am here to tell you keep filling out those slips because next time it could be you!

    Did they tell you when you have to pay the taxes or how much they are? or were they paid for you? Also, how is this listed with the IRS? There have years when I didn't think I had the money to pay IRS the additional taxes for declaring an additional $20,000 income so I never enter the drawings. Maybe I'm wrong and the car comes totally tax free. Please let us know. For your sake I hope it has no taxes whatsoever.

    Congratulations!
    Yes, you do have to declare it on your taxes but if you need or wanted a new car then it is so worth it! I would have put my name in for it as well

    not that the car alone isn't enoough, but check the trunk - maybe it's full of fabric (wouldn't that be a hoot?)

    Congrats on winning. Dont let the tax issue bother you. If it is an issue, you could always sell the car to pay the taxes and still have money left over.

    I was there and put in a ticket, but I never win anything I enter. LOL

    Congratulations! I filled out slips for the sewing machine and the quilt studio but I didn't win. Oh well, maybe next time. Enjoy your new ride.
