#MillionsMissing Crafts Competition

We want to have fun while we work for equal treatment for ME sufferers!

Submit a crochet or knitting project with the #MillionMissing logo as well as a photo of the finished product.  We will pick three winners, who will each receive a prize and they will be the designers behind #Millionsmissingnorway ‘s official patterns.

We suggest:
  • Include a clear #MillionsMissing logo
  • The product should help us to break down stigma, and show that we are many and all types of people with ME.
  • A “cool” product, which has a broad reach in relation to different tastes
  • Project is clearly visible and can be worn or used every day
  • Good explanations and low to medium difficulty
  • Projects that are relatively quick to implement, such as hats, headbands, scarves, mitts, or guest towels

The logo can be interpreted creatively, but must promote #MillionsMissing clearly. The logo can be in the actual pattern or sewn on afterwards (remember attach a pattern of the figure and be sure to explain how the logo was attached using what sort of stitch). The product need not be in the #MillionsMissing colors.

Prizes:
  • 1st prize : Sony action Cam – sponsored (see below) and one #MillionsMissing t-shirt
  • 2nd prize: A scarf in 100% wool and a mudmask – sponsored (see below), and #MillionsMissing t-shirt
  • 3rd prize: Hat in 50% angora and 50% polyamide and avocado oil – sponsored (see below) and one #MillionsMissing t-shirt

    Why can we only enter the competition with just knitting and crochet,? I f ex do bookfolding and would love to fold a MM pattern in a book. 🙂
