Happy October Everyone!
To celebrate the spooky season that October brings, we’re hosting a Monster Mash! You can win fabulous prizes and more importantly surprise someone with a fabulous monster. Here’s how it works:
Step 1) Make a monster! What type of monster? Well there are many options to choose from! Something sewn! Something embroidered! Whatever the method you choose make a little (or big) monster.
Step 2) Post a pic! Upload a photo of your monster to Flickr and then add it to the CME Flickr Club group page (found here).
Step 3) Give your monster away! Hide it in a public space with a little note telling the recipient that they have found a monster that needs a new home. Toss it into a trick-or-treater’s bag. Sneakily leave it on the desk of a co-worker needing a pick me up. Mail it to a friend! Add it to a lunch bag of a favorite little one. Whatever the method, release your monster into the hands of someone.
Step 4) Win a fabulous prize! The CME editors will select favorite monsters and email winning participants via Flickr mail informing them of their win. Respond with your mailing address and we’ll ship you a fabulous prize.
What can you win? So many things! We have several books about making softies, a Halloween Fun quilt pattern and design pack from Lunch Box Quilts and a Monster Factory design pack from Urban Threads available as prizes. Winners will be chosen the last week of October and announced October 31.
So get to work making monsters! Then post them in the Flickr group so that we can see what you’ve been up to. We’ll be stitching away in the CME offices to make a few friends to set free.
Here are some fantastic resources for monster makers:
Assemble a monster using these Urban Threads Monster Factory designs. Alternatively, make a one of their super cute stuffed monsters (such as the Mellow Monster, the Mono Monster or the Monstrous Love Monster).
Use the Monster Bash treat bag designs to create little monsters filled with candy! Designs are free through October!
