Newletter Content Wanted – Deadlines Announced.
All content for Newsletters should be sent to Barb email@example.com (with GMRHG in the subject line, please!)
Newsletters for 2021 will come out early March, June, September, and December.
Deadlines are the 15th of the month before: so…. February 15, May 15, August 15, and November 15.
For each newsletter, we’ll do a random drawing from the member contributors for a great “door prize”.
Due February 15:
For the March 2021 Newsletter we are looking for submissions for the following prompt:
Please send a photo of your hooking/wool workspace, and in just one or two sentences, describe what you like about it and what you don’t, or what works and what you’d like to change about it!
Due May 15:
Send in a photo of you and your hooking, and the pets who “help” you! In just one or two sentences, tell us what you’re hooking and how your pet helps you!
Or: Do you have, hung or placed, a rug or hooked piece that is your favorite in your home decor? Send a photo with a quick description of the rug and how you found the perfect spot for it!
Also for June 2021: Did you do some letters for our Eye Chart we were going to display at the “real” show last fall — the theme was Vision 2020, If you did, please send photos of your letters and we’ll include a page of them in the newsletter.
Due August 15:
Have you used unusual fabrics or materials in a rug or project? Netting, silk, ribbon, velvet? Send a photo of your project and just a few lines about what you tried, maybe why you tried it, and how it worked!
These Newsletter prompts were suggested by member Mary Jane Peabody. Send YOUR ideas for collaborative “articles” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All kinds of content are welcome — not just the suggested prompts. Please include photo of project, photo of yourself, and at least a caption, if not a paragraph or whole article.
