Anyone in going to Paris France and touring the DMC factory to see how they make their threads? Sounds like fun to me. DMC is having a contest that runs from 11/1/12 to 1/31/13 where the winner gets a week’s trip to Paris with a friend and a tour worth $7500. AND if you list your favorite needlework shop (read in Fiberworks!) the owner of the shop also gets a trip to Paris. All you have to do to enter is write a needlework story or memory of stitching 250 words or less. If the judges pick you – you win! So people, start practicing your “Francais” sil vous plait. I have entry forms and rules if you are interested in entering. Memories will be judged 20% of each of these areas: its ability to be inspiring, memorable, sentimental, nostalgic and relevant to needlework and the sponsor. (Be sure to include how much we love to use DMC floss ….)
