I want to re-post this as I have been provided a BETTER link to vote! PLEASE  vote today!!! and everyday!!!

One of the things I truly believe in is supporting others, helping them…encouraging them …I want to see people be successful, and to follow their hearts and dreams…I know few people are working in their dream job…but when you know someone who is… its so fun to be around them…to see the sparkle in their eyes and the excitement in their voice…

One of those people who I have had the pleasure of knowing for sometime now is Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin. From early in my quilt and sewing life I have always admired her designs and have stitched many of them myself…Her patterns are top sellers in our quilt shop.  But most of all I know the kind of person Stacy is…a fun loving, hard working, family focused, dedicated cat lover and let me tell your this women knows how to throw an event!!!Every detail is addressed, everything is amazingly breathtaking and inspiring! You feel so much love in what she creates…you want to touch it all, have it all and feel connected to this authentic vintage vibe that is from days past…

Stacy has been selected in Martha Steward’s AMERICAN MADE contest.  I know some of you don’t pay attention to designers and who’s pattern you are currently making but I will bet you, you have some of Stacy’s Buttermilk Basin patterns in that collection of yours…I am asking you to help me support Stacy and vote for her… the link below here brings you to the site…Click on American Made…she is on the 6th page…Please sign up and vote for her…she really deserves it…I know she has given so much to our stitching community…Lets give a little back to her and take a few minutes to vote for her..You can vote up to 6x a day…I’m sure once a day would be appreciated but 6 would be over the top awesome if you can!!!

Stacy is a stitching/quilting ROCKSTAR…lets make sure our quilting sister is represented!!!

Too many haters … not enough lovers! You both are awesome ladies, very talented, true to your craft, generous, and all-around nice people. (This sounds like a love-fest!!!! :)) Looking forward to the cruise with the two of you. What an awesome week that will be! And thank you for posting this in support of Stacy. You BOTH are rockstars!
