Hello, and happy Monday! The big day is fast approaching, not long now. The tinsel and baubles are out, trees are decorated (or soon will be, in our case!), fairy lights are sparkling, and in homes across the world gorgeous Christmas stockings are ready for Santa’s visit.
We love seeing your tapestries at home, and have a new photo competition for any of you lovely tapestry folk who would like to share pictures of your finished tapestries, works in progress, or new kits received as gifts.
What to do To enter the competition, send us a festive picture of any Jolly Red tapestry or kit that you’ve stitched, are currently stitching, or have received as a gift. This way any Jolly Redder can enter even if they’ve only just found us, and are about to start their first ever tapestry. It can be a picture of a cushion, teacosy, a framed tapestry, or a Christmas stocking, or a collection, or a kit fresh out of its packaging – it really is up to you!
A big thank you to Edwina and Jackie, whose pictures (from previous photo competitions) have been used today in our blog.
Where to send your pictures There are three ways: you can post them on our Facebook page, tweet your picture to @mrsjollyred, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do attach a comment with your image, as we like hearing what you have to say, and it makes it more fun.
The prizes We will pick three lucky winners out of the hat in early January, and each winner will have their next Jolly Red tapestry made up by us free of charge (including return delivery – wherever you are).
Who can enter The competition is open to all stitchers, not only UK residents.
Keeping track, and a bit of detail It can be difficult to keep up with pictures if they’re coming in from different sources, so by entering the competition you give permission for us to include your photograph in our new ‘Christmas 2016’ Album which we have created on Jolly Red’s Facebook page.
We hope you’ll enjoy seeing new pictures appear as it really is a lovely way to feel connected with other stitchers. Some might even be your neighbours, who knows!
Deadline for entries Please send your pictures to reach us by the end of December, New Year’s Eve 2016.
Announcing the winners We will announce the winners in early January once we’ve checked and double checked that we haven’t missed anyone.
We think that’s it. Have we missed anything? Good luck everyone. Thank you for taking part, and Merry Christmas!
