Craft is Art – Coloring Contest

Urban Threads is celebrating Spring with a fun coloring contest, where you could win some yummy threads.  To clarify, this event is targeted for Machine Embroidery and Hand Embroidery enthusiasts and everyone can download a free design.



The free design is available in various machine embroidery formats and sizes, as well as for hand embroidery format.

Simply get artsy and crafty and pull out your fabric markers and color.  Then submit a photo of what you created to Urban Threads by April 30th to enter.  Once all the entries have been received, the finalists (up to 10 in each division) will be announced by Urban Threads on May 5th and everyone is welcome to vote for your favorites thru May 10th.  Urban Threads will announce the lucky winner for each category, who will receive a yummy collection of threads.  For more info, check out Urban Threads’ posts at:

I found this design fun to stitch out and, while I have more to color, I’m having a blast coloring.

Do you want to join me?  Great fun for all ages and certainly would also make a great family project, as well as summer craft project.

If you want to participate, but don’t do machine embroidery or hand embroidery, if you are interested in hiring someone to stitch out this design for you, I could put you in contact with those that are willing to provide this service for a fee.  And, if you are a machine embroiderer and interested in providing such a service, for said fee, feel free to leave a comment on this post.  Periodically I do get asked by people looking to hire someone to do machine embroidery for a fee, and sometimes even looking for digitizers who will create a design for someone.  I try to connect those in the business, when I can.  

Don’t forget when you visit Urban Threads to check out all their beautiful designs for machine and hand embroiders.
