Congratulations to our five lucky winners! We can’t wait to see what you create.
All of this selfless holiday crafting has got us asking a somewhat selfish question: When will we have time to craft for ourselves? As much as we enjoy crafting for family and friends, we can’t help but love the quiet hours spent in our craft rooms sewing the next piece to include in our me-made wardrobe or practicing our new favorite hobby, hand lettering. Feeling the same way? It’s OK because we have the perfect remedy for your crafting blues: The Ultimate Craft Day Giveaway!
We partnered with some of our favorite creatives to give away five prize packs with all the essentials for a day of DIY, valued at $1,450! This giveaway was open worldwide Monday, Dec. 18, through Friday, Dec. 22. Five winners were chosen at random on Tuesday, December 26. See official rules here.
