July Giveaway- bundles of fresh lavender!

Here at Alderwood Quilts, everything is purple! We have a small lavender farm and right now, my quilt shop overlooks a field of 300 lavender plants just bursting with fragrant purple stems. Our harsh winter didn't bother them a bit! Starting next week, I will be shipping bundles of fresh lavender all over the US. I will be at our local farm market each week this month and I also have several lavender products on my website. If you are interested in purchasing fresh bundles in July or dried buds year round, they will appear on my website in a few days. You can always send me an email if you have questions.

This month, instead of a quilting product as a giveaway, I'm going to select TWO lucky readers to receive a fresh bundle of lavender. I will select one winner on July 7th and one winner on July 14th. No need to enter twice- I will just add names to the drawing as you enter and draw from that same pile twice. So enter before the 7th, and you'll have 2 chances to win! If the field is still producing, I may even add a 3rd winner on the 21st- so stay tuned.

To be entered, simply reply to this post and ask to be entered. If you prefer not to post to the blog, you can send me an email (sue@alderwoodquilts.com). I try to reply to people who post, but that may not happen over the next few weeks. If you reply to this or send me an email, rest assured that you are entered.

While I often ship internationally and I LOVE to see that readers from around the world are following this blog, I can't guarantee that I can send lavender internationally. I need to look into the rules for sending fresh herbs to various countries. If I draw an reader from outside the US, we may have to substitute a different prize. We'll just have to see what the rules are.

Good luck to all!

I've never smelled fresh lavender...only the 'fascimilies' in room scents and things. We can grow lilacs here, but the winters are too harsh for lavender....here's dreaming for a win...and a whiff...

How lucky having a lavender farm. I bet it smells wonderful when you're out wandering among the plants. What a wonderful idea for a giveaway!

I love lavender. It is my favorite smell and plant! I grow some of my own but not a lot. I would love to be entered into your contest. Thanks Theresa

Oh, I have been looking for some nice lavender lately. I'm re-doing my bathroom in a gray/white/black motif with purple flower photos and lavender!!!

I love fresh lavender and as easy as it is to grow I have a black thumb up to my elbow and can't keep it alive!! When I had a roommate she had several lavender bushes in the backyard and since she's moved they've all died. Oh well.

So, I really need some fresh lavender in my life, if nothing else but to remind me of the days my backyard looked and smelled like an English Cottage Garden!!

What a great time summer is...fresh lavender and so many ways to use it! Just love all your ideas! I recently took a visit to a lavender shop right here in Brighton, On and bought some essential oil and some starter plants...3 of us are sharing the plants once they grow...we didn't realize how many different types of lavender there is. Thanks for all your great info!

The Rabbit Factory has so many beautiful applique patterns. You should design a Baltimore Album type of quilt with lavender appliques. OOOOooooo that would be so pretty!
