CONTEST EXTENDED THROUGH WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12TH!
Every pillow has a personality, and we want yours! We are very excited to be sponsoring our very first creative contest with our friends at Fairfield Processing - the folks who make all that great soft stuff, like Poly-Fil® fiberfill, Soft-Touch® pillow inserts, and more. It's super easy to enter. Simply create a pillow, using one of the Fairfield products, take a picture and email it to us. Each day, Fairfield will post a random number of pillow pictures on their Facebook wall, as well as onto a special board on their Pinterest page. The photos that generate the most activity at these social media outlets will be the semi-finalists. From these semi-finalists, an industry panel of judges will select five major winners to receive all kinds of great soft-stuff prizes. These top five winners will also be featured in a special article here on Sew4Home. Create a pillow with pizzazz and enter today. The deadline is September 7th, 2012.
Take a digital picture of your creation, and write up a short description (50 words or less) about your pillow's personality and whether the pillow was made to be passed along or kept. You must be older than 18 and a legal citizen of the USA to enter.
Email the digital picture and its description to: S4H@fairfieldworld.com.
