I had a thought, really I did, about how we could interest kids in sewing. We know that these economic times are tough for some parents to send their children to Summer Camp. This year I am going to have a writing contest for girls 8-12, who would like a chance to attend camp, and go home with their own Pfaff Hobby 1132! The time period to enter is limited, and entires are due June 13, 2009.
So calling all children, grandchildren, neighbors, girl scouts, home schoolers, etc to enter the challenge. Forward to a friend who might be interested.
Here is how to enter the writing contest!
The contestant will write a one page letter, in their best handwriting (no typed letters) on who they are, their age, why they would like to attend sewing camp, and how they will use what they learned in camp in the future.
The letters must be original, in the contestants own words and handwriting. (not their parents) Their name, address, phone number and e-mail address should also be included on the letter. (Parents may help with this part)
Entries must be submitted in person, and handed to the staff in at Quilters Loft Company in Pfaff Sewing Machine Shop. Letters will be reviewed by the staff at the Quilters Loft and the winner will be chosen for their originality, handwriting and desire to learn. All letters will be on display in the quilt shop.
The winner will be chosen June 18, and notified by phone, or e-mail, that they have won the contest.
The winner must be available to attend camp Tuesday June 23 to Friday June 26 from 10:30am to 2:30pm.
Start writing now and good luck. Remember your entries are due June 13, 2009. We are looking forward to receiving the letters!
