Uplift Make Along April Sponsors (Part 1)

The Uplift Make Along is in full swing! So far it’s been a great time of discovering new designers, exploring the Mighty Network together, and dipping our toes into the pool of the event.

This first sponsor post has been a long time coming because makers keep offering prizes (and because my computer intermittently decides to stop working)! I waited until I have all the current prize donations logged so I can divide them up evenly between months as well as prizes that ship in the USA only vs internationally. Please note that these shipping restrictions are at the discretion of the sponsor, specified when they donated the prize.

  • Winners for these prizes will be drawn via random selection (Random Number Generator [RNG] for Mighty Networks posts with the “Finished Object” topic tag, and either an RNG or hashtag chooser for Instagram posts of Finished Projects for the event using the #UpliftMakeAlong hashtag.
  • Winners will be instructed to contact the donor with their shipping details. If the donor does not receive an email within 1 week, another winner will be drawn via the same method as above.

Without further ado, here are the Prize Sponsors for April!
Sponsor’s businesses (if they are a business) can be found by clicking on their name at the top of their post.

Ships Worldwide – Stitch Marker Set

Description from maker: I offer two types of progress keepers in my shop so I thought it would be fun to offer a prize package that included one of each: one peyote stitched Bead Tube Progress Keeper with Black, White, and Cranberry Red Beads along with a brick stitched Green Frog Progress Keeper.

They were each created through a process of weaving tiny little glass beads to other tiny little beads over and over again to produce a progress keeper that’s as adorable as it’s lightweight.
