The month of May is upon us, and that means one very important thing around here at Urban Threads…
It’sOurBirthdayIt’sOurBirthday…yea yea It’sOurBirthday!
Remember this? Oh yeah, we had a coloring contest once before, and it was so much fun, I forget what reasons we possibly had for not doing it again! So here we are. We’re going to be the big 5 this year and we thought it was about darn time to bring it back in a grand way, with all the freebies, contests, voting and BIG prizes you could hope for.
So first, we’re going to give you this awesome “Create” freebie!
You can download it here, and it will be free now through May 31. If this shiny free design wasn’t awesome enough, how about the fact that this free thing that can win you more free things!
This is how: as we’ve learned, most of you take peek at the color sheet to see what each stop does, then toss it out the window and show us how it’s done (often with fantastic results, like last time). So, want to show us those mad color skills again?
Download the design and then stitch up your own fantastic new color scheme, and then email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org and either:
- attach a photo of your entry in the email
- or include a link to your photo’s location in the Urban Embroidery flickr group with the tag utcolorcontest2013
Remember, you can stitch up your coloring contest entry using your embroidery machine or by hand. Entries will be accepted through Friday, May 31, 2013. Machine and hand embroidery will be judged in their own categories, and you may submit up to three entries in each category.
After all the entries are in, our lovely team at Urban Threads will pick the 5 top finalists from each category, hand and machine. As an extra bonus, all stitchers who get into this final round will automatically win a $10 gift certificate to Urban Threads! Finalists will be notified through email.
Once the finalists are chosen, we will post the lucky 10 up on the blog on Monday, June 3, and you’ll have through that week to vote on your favorite color scheme in each category (hand and machine) and pick the winners of the grand prize!
So, what do the final two crafty coloring stitchers win?
The lucky embroiderers who get the most votes in each category will win a $100 gift certificate to grab all the designs you ever coveted on your wish list! Or at least get you a good ways until our next birthday 😉
So, download the freebie, choose your own colors, and email your entry for the chance at $100 worth of UT goods. What are you waiting for? Grab your free design and start stitching!
