Show Us Your Pins!

4 May

The DIY table at Got Craft was a smashing success. Over 300 crafty people made their way to the stage to create some of the loveliest pins we’ve ever seen. For the mere $2 cost of admission to the show, there were smiling faces abound at every corner of the DIY table.

We are super excited that so many people came out specifically to see us. We promise to publish a class list as soon as we can. Did you know that people were sighted sporting our pins all over Vancouver, including at other craft shows! Pretty cool, huh?

We noticed a lot of you were snapping pictures whilst making. So, we thought why not post some pictures of your pins on our blog. Then we thought, why not go a step further and create a contest. Then we thought with what ever thought-power we had left, why not have people vote on their favourite pin to make it completely democratic.

Snap a picture of your pin and send us a photo! You canemail us the photo, file or link. We even have a flickr group if you’d prefer to post it there! Deadline for photo-submissions is Friday, May 7th. Lili and I will go through and pick our five favourites and post it on blog on Monday, May 10th along with the special voting doo-dad.

What’s the prize you ask? A free hour in our sewing lounge! That’s right, we’ll give you a free hour on one of our state of the art sewing machines where you can keep that pinwheel pin makin’ feelin’ alive!

Thanks again to everyone for coming out to meet us and showing us how talented each and every one of you are. Lets see those pinwheels!
