It began!


The Challenge began three days ago. We have a folder of the work of the participants at Pinterest

As soon as they begin to upload photos of their work you are going to be able to see them there!

The one you see here is a corner of my first task. The back panel of the paper theatre.

Preparing my first challenge instruction for the Paper Theatre Challenge! Promotional inscription soon to be closed!


This is a small corner of my first piece! The first instruction will be the one of the back panel of the theatre. I just finished it and I'm very happy with the result!

Now I have to put everything together.

I think you will really enjoy this one!

There are already 32 participants from Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, UK and the US. It will be quite international.

Opening of the Paper/Felt/Quiltalong Challenge - Promotional inscription till the 20th. November!



Quiltalongs...Feltalongs...Emroideralongs...
all in one!

This is the beginning of the

Paper/Fabric/Wool Theatre Challenge

I am so happy to introduce the next Challenge. After the success of the first one, the Booklet Challenge, now we are going to begin with the „Paper Theatre“ (actually it is Fabric/Wool !!) one.

Because the organization and realization of the Challenge is becoming more and more complex I will charge this time a promotional fee of 8€ if you inscribe before the 20th of November, after that the price of the Challenge will be of 30€. You will be able to pay them with Paypal or money order.

This time you will get the instructions for the Challenge per e-mail every two weeks. The Challenge will take 3 months in the making. You can also follow the instructions at your own pace.

This is an announcement of the next challenge in The Challenge Nook, it is going to be a textile paper theatre. You will be able to work with any form of textile techniques, including patchwork, felting, embroidery, paper, etc.

The six instructions will be sent every two weeks and you will receive the template for the different parts of the theatre which you will be able to decorate in your own way.

I will post suggestions and you will be able to contact me to comment on the subject.

We will have a Pinterest folder - see the folder of the last challenge under 
http://www.pinterest.com/lechnersara/challenge/

Here are some examples of the work done in the challenge.




We will also have a private Facebook site to be able to interact with the other participants, comment, etc.

Because the Challenge Nook will be a new feature in the internet and there will always be different challenges for all tastes and techniques, there is going to be a
 promotional inscription fee of 8€ 
for the next challenge. 

All details are going to be given after the 15th of November and then you will also be able to inscribe with Paypal or money order.

Stay tuned! I will be happy to host you!
