The voting has begun for the Martha Stewart American Made Contest, and as you probably already know, we are finalists in the Fiber Craft division. We would be so very appreciative if you would vote for us by clicking HERE and then clicking on “VOTE” underneath our picture on the right side of our profile. You have six votes every day, which you can use all with us, or spread around to other finalists as well. Here’s why we’d like to win…
Winning this contest would be an amazing dream come true for us. With the $10,000 prize, we would be able to increase our inventory of great wools for you, buy important pieces of equipment for the studios, start a video instructional and promotion-of-our-craft series, conduct more workshops, stock a wider variety of goods for our customers, and more. We would also be able to increase our advertising and marketing budget, and focus even harder on our primary mission, which is to keep rug hooking alive for future generations. So often we hear, “What is that you’re doing? I’ve never seen that before.” We want to change that, and help bring a renaissance to hooking as has been seen in the knitting and yarn world.
To that same goal, the exposure for our craft that we would gain through the publicity rewards of winning this contest would go a long way toward enlightening America about the wonderful heritage we all share in rug hooking.
So…please vote for us! If we win, we promise to do the rug hooking and fiber craft community proud. Thank you in advance for your support, and once again, you can vote for us by clicking HERE and then clicking on “VOTE” on the right side of our profile underneath our photo and info. You can also share this post with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, wherever you are on the web. We thank you.
