This year we are celebrating 25 years of Jolly Red. A quarter of a century. Put like that it sounds quite amazing! We’d really like to thank all of you, our loyal customers, old and new, for stitching Jolly Red designs and enabling us to grow over the years. There will be some of you have only just discovered us, and others who have been with us since we began, all those years ago in Bristol.
To celebrate our milestone anniversary we have a new photo competition, with five £50 Gift Vouchers as prizes. £50? Yes! Gift Vouchers? Yes! George has designed a special voucher for our anniversary. It’s so cute!
Coming soon We’re working on a full range of vouchers to cover all manner of occasions from new babies to retirement, with birthdays, weddings and anniversaries in between. You’ll be able order the vouchers online very soon, so watch out for an update in our September newsletter.
Who can enter the photo competition? Anyone who has bought or received a Jolly Red tapestry kit as a gift, regardless of where you live – ie not UK only.
How to enter Send us a picture – with a comment if you can – of anything Jolly Red themed. For inspiration, take a look at the collage below of photos that other Jolly Redders have sent in for earlier competitions. Aren’t they great!
More ideas, please…
- The first Jolly Red tapestry you ever stitched, or received as a gift?
- A lucky recipient with a tapestry you stitched for them?
- A child you stitched for, who is now an adult – with their tapestry?
- A tapestry with a special memory for you?
- A tapestry collection that you’ve built up over many years (or in a short time)
- A tapestry you’ve stitched on holiday…or are currently stitching? Perhaps you’re about to start your first one?
- We are a bunch of softies, so any Jolly Red tapestry with a baby, dog or cat will always be welcomed
Over to you, folks!
How to send your picture, the details There are four ways to send your picture to us:
1. Email your photograph (with a comment if you can) to firstname.lastname@example.org, using #jollyred25 in the header
2. Post it on our Facebook page, again with a comment and using #jollyred25
3. Tweet to @mrsjollyred with your picture and comment, and hashtag #jollyred25
4. Send your picture to us in the post if you’d prefer to do it that way. Please include a contact phone number if sending by post.
Permission We will keep track of the competition photographs by adding them to a special album on Facebook. By entering the competition, you are giving permission for us to include your photograph in the new Facebook album. If there are lots of entries this really is the simplest way for us to ensure that we don’t miss anyone out. You’ll also be able to check that your picture’s there.
Privacy If you would prefer us not to mention your name alongside your picture, please let us know when you send it.
Notifying the winners The five lucky winners of the competition will be notified by email or phone (as applicable) and on our Facebook page, as well as here on our blog, and will each be sent a special code to activate their personal voucher. If the voucher is to be used for our making up service, we’ll explain that it needs be sent in with the completed tapestry with the unique voucher code written on the reverse.
Closing date The last date for entries is Tuesday August 29th, and the five winners of the five £50 Gift Vouchers will be announced as soon as possible after that date. We’ll be doing a lot of checking and double checking. The names will be selected using the tried and tested ‘out of the hat’ system.
Good luck everyone!
Once again, thank you so much for helping us to stay so…jolly!
PS A warning – there may well be the odd spot of reminiscing over the coming months.
