*RAFFLE* CHAINSTITCHED BANNER: LEAVE IT BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT
LEAVE IT BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT
*RAFFLE WINNERS WILL BE SELECTED AND ANNOUNCED 5/01/21 at 12P CST*
In 2021, I'll be chainstitching and raffling off a banner in the final week of every month. Each 18x24" banner will be designed by a different artist, (the lineup can be found here), and chainstitch embroidered and sewn together by me. The banners will be raffled off at $10 per entry, and 100% of the money raised will be donated to the organization chosen by the designer of the banner. This April banner was designed Meg Lewis, and she decided to donate the money to Juxtaposition Arts.
From Meg: “This phrase is something that I come back to that has an impact on everything I do. Whether I’m grabbing a cup of coffee, designing a mural, or just being my goofy self on social media, I always try real darn hard to leave every space better than I found it (Airbnb hosts love me!). And what better place to donate raffle proceeds to than Juxtaposition Arts! Juxtaposition Arts is a teen-staffed art and design center, gallery, retail shop, and studio space in North Minneapolis. They are currently the only Black-led art & design org in North Minneapolis (going on 25 years baby!) and are now raising capital to invest in their facilities, programming, and creative futures of youth in North Minneapolis. Let’s help them create a strong cultural ecosystem for another 25 years+++ in North Minneapolis!!!”
More info about the raffle is as follows:
1. Each ticket to the raffle costs $10, and 100% of the money from the banner will go to the Juxtaposition Arts.
2. Every $10 gets an extra raffle ticket, $10=1, $30=3 tickets, etc.
3. When purchasing your raffle ticket(s) please use an up-to-date email address so that if you end up being the winner, I can reach out directly and arrange shipping details (or pickup if the winner is local to Chicago).
4. The contest will end April 30th at 12a CST, and I'll announce the winners on my instagram story at 12p CST on 5/01, then I'll get in contact with the winner directly.
Each of the banners in the series measures 18 x 24". They are chainstitch embroidered on panels of felt and satin fabric, and are hangable with grommets.
