Yay, it’s giveaway day!!
We’re giving away a fat quarter bundle of Joel Dewberry’s Notting Hill in the teal color way. All you need to do is leave a comment letting us know what kind of online tool you wish was available for quilters, or a cool online tool you’ve found (read on to see why we care!)
Open to international shippers, and the giveaway closes Friday, December 7th, at 5pm PST.
To give some of the new people a bit of background on Play Crafts, the company was dreamt up and created last year. There are three of us, Jane, Gillian and Anne (myself). Gillian and I are quilters and embroiderers, while Jane is a knitter. Gillian and I were finishing our PhDs in computer science (we finished last June, yay!) and Jane runs the center which oversaw our studies. We were all disappointed by the lack of software tools for crafters, and after a lot of brainstorming, Play Crafts was born.
Our goal is to create free, easy, and fun tools to help in the crafting experience. Our first tool, Palette Builder was designed to create palettes from your own photos. It’s available online, and we hope you’ll share what you create in our flickr group! We’ve gotten a lot of great feedback on it, and we have some exciting improvements in store. The second tool which we’re also working on takes those palettes and finds fabrics to match them. We have a lot of other great (we think) ideas in mind, and I can’t wait to see what you all think of them! And for this giveaway, we’re hoping to hear what types of things you are interested in, so maybe we can start working on that, too. 🙂
We hope you’ll follow our blog and see the fun quilty things we’re working on, as well as some updates on the tools. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other great giveaways being hosted by Sew, Mama, Sew!
