Camp Workroom Social 2016 is right around the corner, and we want you to be a part of the Camp family!
Join me, sewists all over the country, and our friends at SINGER® for a Campy PJ Party on Instagram on Saturday, October 1!
At the end of a long day of Camp, we love to tuck into our coziest PJs and stretch out for a long chat with our bunkmates. We spend hours talking technique and sharing the snacks we stowed away in our suitcases with new friends. Better yet, we leave the door open in case the next bunk over wants to come hang out for a PJ party!
It’s moments like these that make Camp Workroom Social a true sleepaway camp experience. Oh, and those PJs…handmade, of course. We are sewists, after all!
Campers in their bunks from CWS 2015
With CWS less than 2 months away and sold out, we are inviting you to get in on the fun of Camp from home with a sewing challenge, a giveaway, and merit badges (yes, merit badges!) for all who join the party (U.S. residents with valid U.S. mailing addresses only).
To participate, sew a pair of PJs and post them to Instagram on (or before) the day of our Camp PJ Party, October 1. Tag me (@workroomsocial) and your post (#camppjparty, #sewwithSINGER, and #campworkroomsocial) and send us the proof plus your mailing address, and you will be entered in our great giveaway sponsored by SINGER®.
You will also receive your very own, in-real-life Camp PJ Party merit badge!
After all, the merit badge is one of the most iconic symbols of camp; a tangible reward for your personal achievement, you save them up all summer and then beg your mom to sew them on a favorite T-shirt or tote bag so you can proudly display the proof that you finally learned how to canoe (or make a bra, as the case may be!).
And because our sponsor SINGER® loves our community of sewists so much, they are also offering to give away 2 of our favorite machines. The first is a SINGER® SUPERB™ EM200 embroidery machine ($1,400.00 retail value) — the same machines we used to make our Camp Workroom Social merit badges. (Why yes, we made these badges ourselves! We are DIYers too!). The second is the SINGER® LEGACY™ C440 computerized sewing machine ($899.99 retail value).
The first winner will be chosen by your fellow sewists over 3 days (Oct. 1-3). The second winner will be randomly selected from the pool of entries (because we want everyone to have a real chance at winning!). Check back in late September for details on how to vote for your favorite PJs.
Winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 5. Merit badges will be mailed out that same week.
To help you join the PJ party, we will be posting our favorite techniques, tips, patterns, and PJ inspiration over the next month. Until then, start picking your patterns! Some or our favorite are…
The Camp Workroom Social PJ Party is scheduled for October 1. To enter our giveaway and earn your merit badge, post a picture of your you-made PJs and tag your post with @workroomsocial, #camppjparty, #sewwithSINGER, and #campworkroomsocial. To complete your entry, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Camp PJ Party” and include a link to your Instagram post, your full name, mailing address, phone number, and email address.
