BIG COMPETITION NEWS!!
Twisted Thread, who run the Knitting and Stitching Shows, and Morsbags have teamed up to launch a fabby competition which I hope you'll all enter and spread the word about for others to enter.
Click here for downloadable pdf. http://www.morsbags.com/TTmorsbag-comp.pdf
There are super prizes on offer, many donated by the wonderfully kind people at Coats Crafts UK and, for the younger entrants, the chance for a family of 4 to win a Trip to India
For individual adults, there are three categories to choose from:
- “Simply gorgeous and retro”
One for the boys
- “The Morsbag a real man can take to the shops”
- “The Morsbag that makes us all smile”
We are really hoping that the Morsbag competition will be adopted by teachers either within the classroom or as an after school crafts project. It’s a great way to introduce textile skills but linked in with a whole range of super relevant issues from the environment and recycling to fair trade and animal protection.
There will be individual categories for children of different age groups, being:
• Child aged 5 to 8
• Child aged 9 to 11
• Child aged 12 to 16
• Young Person aged 17 to 18
There will also be categories for classes and school clubs being:
• Class or Group from years 1 to 3
• Class or Group from years 4 to 6
• Class or Group from years 7 to 11
• Class or Group from years 12 and 13
So everyone here please, please do enter the adult section and please, please tell your local school, children and grandchildren!
There's also a place for pods, existing or new, to tell their 'morsbaggy' stories (re pod meetings, making morsbags, handouts - any morsbag experience reallly..) with photos which will be put on a big display at the NEC alongside the competition entries for everyone to admire - so please do send in to this too.
Here's all you need to know: http://www.morsbags.com/TTmorsbag-comp.pdf
everyone and don't forget to send in your entry forms by Friday 18th June!!!
Thank you Anna at Twisted Thread for being a brick!
