Kimonomomo Winter Sashiko Challenge 2016

It’s time for a challenge and I’m excited! Check out the video here:

Magical prizes! Shopping credit at Kimonomomo ~~~ so you can have even more sashiko goodness.

  • 1st place – $40 credit
  • 2nd place – $20 credit
  • 3rd place – $10 credit

Here’s how you can be a part of it:

  • Order your kit – includes fabric, thread, and two sashiko needles. Color choice is random.
  • Play with your materials – add beads, ribbons, more fabric, anything you like. One caveat is that the supplied materials must be used. Don’t like the colors? That’s part of the challenge! Learn to work with colors and/or materials you wouldn’t normally try on your own.
  • Make your sashiko traditional style, contemporary, abstract, whatever floats your boat.
  • Submit photos or a video of your completed project by February 29, 2016. Yes, I know, in the video I said Feb. 28, but I forgot it was a Leap Year. More time for you! Update: deadline extended to March 14. 
  • Open to all most countries*, all ages. If a winner is under 18 years old, please have an adult handle the prize claim, just to be safe and legal.
  • Judging will be on March 1 March 15 by me (Carol) and the Kimonomomo team.

Questions? Post here, email me, or post in the video comment section. I will do my best to answer every question as quickly as possible.

*There are very few countries I do not ship to due to past difficulties with postal systems. They include South Africa and most of South America. I love you wonderful people, but your local postal systems take forever to deliver packages and the challenge would be over before you could start!

    Dang girl, I just barely joined the challenge and you have prepped my little package for shipping. You are so dang quick. Yay, I can start quicker!

    1. Ha! Yep, I saw several orders come in all at once so I packed a bunch of kits, shuffled them up, and slapped mailing labels on them. You should see yours soon! Can’t wait to see how your project turns out.

    What a wonderful challenge! I would leap at the chance but I just had surgery on my right hand last week and will be in a cast for the next 9 weeks. So…..if there is lots of response, would you ever thought of running another challenge in six months or a year?

    1. Absolutely! I’ll have another one ready in the spring. I hope you’re healed up and ready to go, but if not, I’ll keep posting more each season.
