The colouring contest is now on!
Get your pencils, pens, markers, pastels, or paints out and have fun. If you think of some other medium you want to try, like yarn somehow, bring it on!
Closing date: June 21st 2016. Winner to be announced in July. Runt, the original artist, has agreed to help select the winner.
Prize: A skein of Fleece Artist yarn in the new Yarnsomniac colourway (your choice of DK, Aran, or Cottage Sock), and a Yarnsomniacs mug (your choice which style).
Prizes limited to persons of any age, of Canadian and US mailing addresses (sorry, international mail is expensive). However, anyone else is welcome to join in for the fun :)
Please write "colourwork by:" and put your name/alias and date on the paper, and tag us (on Facebook by checking in at Porch Swing Yarnsomniacs or message/email it to us and we will post it for you) with your scanned/photo of artwork, or you can mail it to us, or bring it in to the store in person.
By submitting to this contest you agree that we can reproduce it, re-post it on the internet (on our blog, pinterest, Facebook, Ravelry etc), and in our store.
Store address: 1546 Eglinton Ave West, Toronto, Ontario, M6E, 2G8, Canada.
Update: July 2016: Thanks for all the submissions! Even though the contest is over, you can still submit them if you like, and we will happily put them up around the store and on the social media.
Congrats to Alex, winner, and here is the winning entry:
