Last weekend I ran my first contest for Club Yumi on Instagram and it was very exciting! I was blown away by how many people were interested in getting a free kit and the positive comments that I received were so wonderful. I wanted to thank everyone who played along and for those of you who missed it, don't worry I've got plans for an upcoming contest that will only be open to newsletter subscribers.
What did The Last Unicorn Contest involve?
Here's the post that went up about it on Thursday, July 13, 2017:
"That adorable little guy (the unicorn pictured) is the free gift that was included with the Club Yumi Subscription kits this month and he's sure to bring some extra magic (and cuteness!) to your knitting projects. He's handmade by @trufflesshuffle & is one of her many super adorable creations. (Including magical unicorn poop!) I was lucky enough to score a whole herd of these guys for the kits, and I have one lonely little one left over for whoever wins the contest.⠀ . . . ⠀ The contest will end at 11:59 PM CST on Saturday, July 15, 2017. The winner will receive 1 Ice Cream & Magic Club Yumi Knitting Kit + the last Unicorn Stitch Marker. I will be using a random number generator to select the winner from qualifying entries. Winner will be posted and contacted by 7/22/17.⠀ . . .⠀ To enter you must:⠀ 1.) Like this post in the @yumiyarns Instagram timeline⠀ 2.) Tag 2 friends in the comments⠀ 3.) Sign-up for YumiYarns e-mails at YumiYarns.com⠀ ⠀ You can get 1 bonus entry by reposting this post to your IG timeline & including @YumiYarns in the caption."
Tallying the Results...
This was a short, but sweet contest that lasted about 36 hours and I just couldn't get over how much you guys blew up my phone during that time! We had a total of 59 entries into the contest which I put into a spreadsheet. I then used a random number generator to select a number between 1 and 59...
The winning number was #23: dropastitch!
I will be contacting dropastitch directly to let her know that she's won & to get her mailing address so that I can send her kit out in the mail on Monday. Thank you again to everyone who played along and be sure to continue to watch for details of the next Club Yumi contest!
