The Upcyclist Party Contest
We are pretty sure this contest is right up our readers’ alley! Do you find yourself perusing through your local big-box during the holidays and getting a little worked up about all the cheap plastic junk they have on the shelves just for the sake of temporary decorations? Here is your chance to show ’em what stuff like that should really be made of.
From the site:
SINGER® Sewing Company and CRAFT Magazine are excited to present a contest for all you resourceful sewers around the world! Both SINGER and CRAFT like a good party but hate to waste resources on disposable decorations that just end up in landfills. We know you can help us come up with fantastic ideas that are hip and cool as well as eco-friendly. For a four-week period, crafters can submit pictures online of party decorations that they have made from “upcycled” materials (or things that they already have in the house) to the flickr group called ‘The Upcyclist Party Contest‘. At the end of the six weeks, SINGER will pick one Grand Prize winner and three runners-up.
The Grand Prize winner’s project will be featured in the SINGER® ad in the February issue of CRAFT Magazine. The Grand Prize winner will also receive one (1) SINGER® Curvy™ Sewing Machine with a retail value of $399.
Three (3) runners-up will receive a SINGER® rolling sewing machine case ($79.99) and a subscription to CRAFT Magazine.
