Ok folks, I’m organizing a little something for all of us string makers. Pro, amateur, good, bad, or ugly. I want us to come together and really have some fun. So, it is with great pride that I announce the First Annual Forum STRING FLING!
So, if you’re wondering what this is, it’s fairly simple.
Step 1. Sign up by posting “I’m in” or equivalent.
Step 2. I’ll add you to the list and get your info when I need it.
Step 3. Make 1 string for each participant. (Open enrollment until Jan31) This is more of a “guideline”. If you have multiple types, send one of each per participant. If you want to send stickers or anything else, feel free. Just make sure you have enough for everyone.
Step 4. Send the string to me. I will put together packages by dividing everything equally. They’ll be labeled with maker, “ingredients”, and any other info that the maker gives me. Shipping to you is on me!
Step 5. BE PATIENT! I work funny hours and have three kids. Also, I want to give everyone plenty of time to sign up and send in their goodies.
Step 6. Post up when you receive your package. Let us know initial thoughts, feelings, emotions. Tell us what you like, what you don’t like. The purpose is not only to sample strings, but to get feedback on the strings you made. Constructive criticism, ladies and gentlemen, please.
Step 7. ENJOY AND HAVE FUN! This is a chance for us to have some fun and learn together. It will help us to grow as a group, and maybe you’ll find a new favorite string.
So, if you’re in, simply say so or shoot me a message.
I’m hoping we can get a good number of people in this. The more the merrier! There will be no cost to participants other than the envelope to send me your strings, and you’ll get to try a bunch of other people’s string! If you know anyone who makes strings, let them know about the String Fling. Tell them to tell their friends. This is a great chance to get to know each other, learn a little, and have some fun!
So without further rambling, may I proudly present
THE 2020 STRING FLING!!!
