Singer Scarf Contest Answered

Picture of

CRAFT and Singer are teaming up to bring you the Me, My Scarf  & I Contest!
 

Show off your own personal style in scarf-version for a chance to win a new Singer ProFinish serger or a universal carrying case + $25 to the Maker Shed.

All you need for entry is a Flickr photo of you wearing the scarf, but I bet a full-on Instructable of how you made the scarf would give you a winning edge!

Deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. PDT November 23, 2009. Each entry will be judged based on the following criteria: creativity of design, description of how the scarf represents the creator, and the use of a sewing machine in the creation process.

I don't do craft or need any more scarves but I had to click on the link just because of that.  Shame it's just an HTML escape fail.

I would love to be able to enter contests Instructables are offering, but I live in Canada as many of Instructables fans do.... A serger ?Oh wow!  Hey what about a contest where the prize would be a knitting machine, or a kiln, or a copy of The Instructables book, or money to pay off my Visa bill (just kidding) contest? Or a trip to Burning Man, or Maker Faire (lost in dream land now bye)

Of course its only for US residents.  Being that I'm from Canada I must only use "BEAVER BRAND" sewing machines.  That and porcupine quills for needles, when I go nuts and do a little old school free-hand, I could go on but whats the point.  The Singer machine is actually an American invention, there were others in France, Britain and Germany, but they all malfunctioned.   So really, I can't be cranky about it.
