And the winner is........

Tonight is the night to announce the winners of the Aussie Hero ANZAC Day Laundry Bag Challenge.  You all made a great effort and sent in some wonderful laundry bags.  There are going to be some very happy new owners over there.  I asked one of our Laundry Bag Distributors to be the judge and she assembled a team to help her.
I am soooo glad she accepted the challenge as I would not have been able to choose!

Hi Jan-Maree, 

...drum roll...

and the winner is...

Jeann...whoop whoop...congratulations:)

Every item was judged on originality and use of colour. I had 3 of us (1 of them being me) who conducted the preliminary judging; thank you N and J, and the final judge was M; again, many thanks for your time.

In second place is Janine 

 Third was Millie...congratulations ladies.

Jan-Maree, thank you for asking me to participate as it was a lot of fun and the creativity and effort that went into all the bags was amazing which made it difficult to select the overall winners, but thankfully I had the team to help.


Jeann and Millie I need you to email me your addresses please so I can send you your prizes which will be kept confidential until you have received them.

Till next time..............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
