I hope you all had a wonderful time finding our grumpy little sheep last weekend. This weekend, we are starting a double contest.
Contest #1 There is a missing sheep hidden on the web site again this weekend. This merino gentleman has missed a few shearing over the years so he is carrying an abundance of fleece. He really needs to be found so that he can get shorn and make all his wonderful wool available to some lucky spinner.
He will again only be hiding from Friday afternoon until Monday morning. But we are going to change the rules for reporting a bit this time around to give more people a chance to be the first to find this guy. Even after you have found him, you cannot send an email into the festival office until after 7 AM on Saturday morning.
Again the time the email is received will determine the winner.
The first person to find the sheep will win a grab bag of spinning fibers valued at at least $25.00. The winner will be determined on Monday morning by the date and time of receipt of an email to the festival office at firstname.lastname@example.org. The email must include the exact location of the lost sheep and a guess on just how long his fleece might be.
Remember this sheep is not a regular resident on the web site, only a guest, so you are looking for a sheep where he should not be.
The winner will be contacted by the festival staff to get mailing directions for the prize.
The winner's name will be announced on the Michigan Fiber Festival Facebook Group Page. If you are not currently a member, request to be added to the page. There will also be an announcement in a blog post on the festival web site.
A new lost sheep competition will begin each Friday afternoon from now until the end of June. The prize for each week will be announced on Friday on Facebook and as a Blog Post on the festival web site.
Contest #2 We are going to put a reward out there for referring people to the festival web site to sign up for workshops. If you can get three people to sign up for a workshop and list your name in the notes section at check out as their referral, you will received a $15.00 gift certificate towards a 2016 festival workshop. For every individual past 3 that lists your name in the notes section at check out as their referral, you will get an additional $5.00 off a workshop. Just think, 10 referrals and you get a free ½ day workshop!
Contest #2 will run until June 15th with the awards taking place on Friday June 17th.
This a great chance to contact friends and family that may not spend a lot of time on the computer but are very interested in fiber arts and get them to take a workshop. Loan them the use of your Internet device to shop for the perfect workshop and create their registration.
Office staff, board members and committee members are excluded from play. Only one win per person.
