Help us get the word out!

We're having a contest to help promote the event. Prizes include this lovely handspun yarn, a set of Ravelry-themed stitchmarkers, and perhaps a few other goodies to be announced later.



Here's what you need to do to enter:

1. Write a post about the Homespun Yarn Party on your blog between now and March 14 at 12 PM EST.
2. Leave a comment here (on the HYP blog) with a link to your blog entry, so we know you've posted. Be sure to give us a way to contact you if you win!
3. At the event, we will draw at least two winners from among the contest entrants.

You don't need to attend to win, so even people who can't make it to the party can have fun with us!

While you're at it, if you’d like to link to the Yarn Party blog on your blog sidebar, here are some buttons you can use (right click on the image and click “save image as” to save it to your computer and then upload it to your own server space).



Please spread the word by conventional means as well - tell your friends about the event, announce it at your SnB or guild meeting, hang a poster at your school or community center, ask your LYS to request postcards.


3/16/09 UPDATE: The winners are Andrea of Spinster Yarns and Fibers, and Nora of Atomic Knit Forum! We'll be in touch this week to get you your prizes.

Hi, what a wonderful idea! I hope I will be able to attend! The contest is a great way to get the word out. My blog is http://bonaircat.blogspot.com - TiNKerBelle and I have posted a clickable link on my sidebar so that the word won't get lost in the shuffle of my blog entries!
