This year we are continuing our support for the Pink Ribbon Foundation and the Cancer Council. We have decided against selling our cupcakes or Pink Ribbon merchandise, we want you to create something beautiful to celebrate the battles won and lost against Cancer by those you love. I am having visions of pink and yellow displays, you pick we don’t mind.
The entry fee will be the fundraiser, which means that 100% will go to the Cancer Council and Pink Ribbon Foundation. There will be 3 $25.00 gift vouchers to be won. These will be for the best entry in crewel embroidery, cross stitch, and tapestry/needlepoint. I am sure you have questions, we are still working out the finer details, and will have them available in store and on our website for May 1st, the beginning of our annual May Sale.
Are you a Blackworker? …. It will be judged in the cross stitch section, maybe you could make it pink or yellow.
Longstitcher? … judged amongst the tapestry/needlepoint entries
…. You get the idea
The competition ends October 15th 2010 and we will exhibit the winning entries instore for 2 weeks. For tips on how we will be judging your work, check out my post “Everyone’s a critic …” on March 16th.
We can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
