Congratulations to Brad Robinson!! (#12)

Our Week 1 Winner!

Brad is a quilt maker who, 3 years ago, felt the need to learn another craft. After walking into a gallery, and being amazed by some block prints he saw, he decided to learn for himself. He spends a lot of his time carving, inking & pulling prints. His work is displayed at a gallery in San Francisco .. you can see his collective here.

How was the winner chosen?

As each valid entry is received, it is assigned a number.. these are given chronologically, in the order each entry is submitted. They are then entered into and generated into a sequence.. the first number is our winner, the second  the runner up.. etc etc . For more information on the rules of this drawing, please see the FAQ.

I'm working on a way that I can publicly share the database file of entrants & their numbers without having to manually delete the email addresses ( I respect our entrants privacy)…as of right now, I don't have the time needed to manually edit that information. This is all voluntary (though the time put into it, is like a job!) and as much as I'd like to be able to do that, it's far too time consuming. Thanks for your patience! – Chrysti

Tomorrow afternoon, the new technique & prize will be up..
Check back then!

    Many, Many, Many thanks to you for all the hard work you put into this first week. I know you spent many hours and there were many times when you wanted to pull your hair out and scream, but look at what you have accomplished…!!! It is awesome, can hardly wait for the next technique.. next week will be smoother.. Hugs, Ruth

  2. Suzanne Renfrow said,

    I also want to add my thanks. I love this group because we get to learn new techniques, then share our work and how we tweak it to make it “our own”. It’s a great way to get newbies as well as already-established (and awesome!) artists together, where we can share and learn from one another. We are truly “playing together”! Such a great idea. Congrats to the winners!

    Congrats to the winners, and congrats to the Try it Tuesday team for such a successful first week! I loved learning a new technique and getting to see everyone’s efforts all in one place.

    PS. I don’t see why you should bother trying to get together a list of the database without email addresses. You are the only one who needs to know what number each person was assigned and it would be a lot of extra work. Remember, this is a weekly thing! I, for one, don’t want it to be so much work that you stop having Try it Tuesdays at all.
