Always Playing with Aurifil Threads, Photo Competition

As I watch, & listen to, the news about the floods in Queensland and northern New South Wales, it feels frivolous to be writing about patchwork but it also creates a little window of escapism from the distressing images on the evening news.

My new year resolutions for 2011 were to write a blog post here once a week, send a letter to our newsletter subscribers once a month and to offer a project or activity, using Aurifil threads, to both groups each month.

So to kick off this plan for 2011, we are announcing the “Always Playing with Aurifil Threads”  photo competition, which is open to residents in Australia & New Zealand. 

Apologies to international readers, future activities will involve you,  but this one is just for the “locals” .

You will be able to download a page with the complete details about how to enter the competition in the “GREEN FREEBIES”  box to the left of the screen,  so to summarise here:

  • We are looking for tasteful photos, suitable for general exhibition, showing Aurifil thread being used in a fun, creative, interesting way or location.
  • The prizes, 4 of them, will be your choice of a spool of thread, or a door ticket entry to a Craft show.
  • Competition closes 28 February 2011
  • Our decisions as to the winning entries are final.

The photos above are just two examples that would fit the competition rules, as we can just identify the thread as being an Aurifil product. 

I am sure your photos will be even more creative.
