Unique Stitching Opportunity - Act Now!

This is the breathtaking site of The Textile Museum in Wesserling Park in France.  How would you like a small piece of your stitching in an exhibit here?  It can happen!

Here's the scoop!  DMC has been in operation for 250 years . You can contribute to that history by sending the museum an embroidered letter which will be displayed on a large sign with all the letters sent in embroidered in DMC #321 red.  It will be displayed with all the other letters received in an area of the museum dedicated to the Alsace region where DMC originated.  These embroidered letters will become part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Textile Wesserling and your name will be displayed on a sign of thanks.

Here is what you need to do to take part:
- Using #321 DMC red, embroider a letter of your choice on a 15 cm X 15 cm (approx 6 inches) piece of white or unbleached fabric (aida, linen, muslin, etc) - any embroidery technique!
- Send your embroidery in to be received before May 12, 2014, to the following address:
"Concours DMC"
Rue du Parc
684 Husseren-Wesserling

There isn't much time so you will have to act quickly but it is totally doable! Why not stitch a letter today and mail it in tomorrow?
The deadline is coming very quickly - your entry must be received by May 12th so act now!
