HUDSON, OHIO--(Marketwire - September 10, 2010) -  You have the perfect pattern. You've carefully selected all of the materials. You cut. You sew. You press.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores (NYSE: JAS), the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, wants to see your fabulous quilt. You could win $2,500 plus additional prizes. "Quilting brings people together to share their passion," states Michelle Christensen, vice president of sewing merchandising for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. "There are countless guilds, clubs, and online avenues where people are sharing their love of quilting. Quilt Your Colors gives quilters another way to show their enthusiasm for their craft with fellow quilters and earn recognition for their talent and skill. It is a great way to celebrate September as national sewing month!"
