Winner to Be Announced Soon!

Monday, April 1, 2013

A big, hearty THANK YOU to everyone who entered the contest to win a trip to Paris that we announced back in October of 2012.

All entries have all been reviewed by our judges. There were so many terrific entries that selection was difficult to say the least. Your stories are indeed inspiring!

The lucky winners have been selected based on their inspiring, memorable, sentimental, nostalgic, or relevant entry in 250 words or less, featuring their favorite memories of DMC Needlework Threads and products.

The winners and their stories will be announced soon, right here on this blog.

We’re so excited and can hardly wait for the trip, which includes a week in France, a train ride through the beautiful French countryside to DMC’s headquarters, and a tour of the factory.

Stay tuned for our exciting announcement!

Hi! I have never done any embroidery, but I would absolutely love to learn how! I would love to win this book so I can learn how to start a new “thread endeavor!” My favorite DMC colors are 704, 600, 3846, 155, and 743…Such fun colors!

Win a Trip to Paris with DMC!

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

How would you and a friend like to spend a week in Paris? DMC can help!

There’s no purchase necessary. It only costs a memory… in 250 words or less.

Choose your memory type – Christmas, wedding, birthday, scouting or sports event, etc. – and submit your favorite DMC memory between November 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013.

A panel of judges will select the best memory, based on its ability to be inspiring, memorable, sentimental, nostalgic, and relevant to needlework and DMC Needlework Threads and products.

DMC will send the winner and a friend to Paris for a week including an excursion to historic Mulhouse, France for a DMC Factory tour.

And if you mention your favorite independent needlework shop on your entry form, they can win a trip to Paris too!
