Something amazing is happening – and i’d really appreciate it if you could help me out.
A few months ago i was reading Frankie magazine, when an ad caught my eye. It was for a contest for people who are modernizing traditional crafts for our generation, to win $100,000 to further their businesses.
I don’t normally enter things, but this really hit me. As i kept reading, i just kept feeling like what they were describing is exactly what i’ve been trying to do – recreating, rethinking and redesigning sewing and sewing patterns for a new generation of crafters. Having a passion for traditional crafts in a modern world. I entered. I never enter things.
And something amazing happened – last week i got an email telling me i was one of the 10 finalists in Australia. I almost passed out with excitement!
I think you know what an investment like that could do for Megan Nielsen Patterns – it would mean more patterns, more tutorials, building a team, more of everything awesome – and I could really do all those things i want to do with the company! It would be literally, life changing. As you know, I’ve built this business working in the middle of the night, with almost no funding – and i can only imagine the amazing things i could do with a kickstart like this.
So this is me shamelessly asking - please, please if you could take a few moments to head on over to the Modern Craft Project website, and vote for me – i would be undyingly grateful. (i believe you can vote once a day)
Please spread the word!! Tell your friends, tell your family – tell anyone who loves sewing! (and forgive me if i mention it again a few times before the month is over… i’m kind of excited)
Thank you so so much! I’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again – your support, and encouragement and love of this brand is everything to me – thank you for being in my corner :)
Praying so hard that I make it through!!!
