    So, what you're saying is quilting pays!!!! NICE!!!!!! That's quite a few thousand dollars that you can spend on fabric and not worry!!!

    Congratulations - unfortunately my first thought was 'did she have to pay taxes when she picked it up too' but, taxes over a new car are minimal to the winning.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us

    Congratulations! Is it somehow odd that I feel pride that a member of the Quilting Board won? Anytime you want to drive down to northwest Ohio I'd be happy to show you our quilt shops!

    Congrats again!

    So that's why I didn't get a call !!!!! Congratulations - I love it when someone wins something and they really need it. Have fun running around to all your quilt shops. The quilts that were displayed were awesome. So looking forward to next year.

    That's the first time I've heard of a quilt show giving a car away. How wonderful is that!

    Wow, that's fantastic! I wasn't able to go, as I was working at the shop (Caroline's Cottage Cottons in Rome City, IN). However, my boss was vending there. Rome City isn't too far from Niles! Come down and see us and show off the car sometime!

    Congratulations!!! That is certainly a big win. Gives the rest of us encouragement to keep filling out entry forms, even if there is a tax payment. Never look a gift horse in the mouth!!!

    Forget the taxes, I want to know if you meant you will "have to" be traveling with the Focus or do you just "get to" now that you "got one"?!! What color is it, btw?
