Sewhooked Summer Challenge!

Sewhooked 2012 Summer Challenge

Welcome to the first day of the 2012 Sewhooked Summer Challenge!

This is a super fun, super simple challenge with a fun prize!

The challenge is this… make any project from a pattern or tutorial designed by me, Jennifer Ofenstein, and take a photo of yourself and/or your project at a fun or interesting location and then post that photo to the Sewhooked flickr group!

Wild Plums

Your projects can come from the Sewhooked Shop, Free Patterns, Yarn Patterns or Tutorials (which includes stencils, stitching projects, crafts and more!) OR any pattern designed by me that’s been posted on another site, like Fandom In Stitches, or any of my published work (like May Showers Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks).

In short, if I designed it, shared it, posted it or published it, you can use it for the 2012 Sewhooked Summer Challenge!

Photos must be posted to the Sewhooked flickr group by 8 am (CST) on July 1, 2012 and only photos tagged “2012 Sewhooked Challenge” will be included. Please include the location in your photo’s description.

July 1…. That’s one whole month to get your awesome, fun, wacky photos posted!

I will post all the challenge photos to Sewhooked during the first week of July and the winner will be chosen via anonymous poll.  Please make sure sharing is enabled on your flickr photos so your photo can be included in the poll!

Baby Quilting (signed by contributing quilter Osie Lebowitz), Treasures from the 30s (signed by author Nancy Mahoney), three fun pin-back buttons, two skeins of posh specialty yarn, a pack of sweet fabrics, and my own pattern, In a Castle. I reserve the right to ADD MORE PRIZES before the July 1 deadline! Please contact me if you’d like to contribute to the prize pack!

    This sounds like great fun… I am thinking some HP blocks photographed in the YA section of the bookstore I work at… 🙂
