Step 1 March 16 through March 29
JWKBucks can only be spent on my website. We will determine the value of each project at the outset and then you will earn JWKBucks on Completion. Since you will be completing a Project, JWKBucks are really just icing on the cake!
JWKBucks can be used to purchase
Jill Wolcott Knits patterns (I can make it available in your Ravelry library)
Purchases cannot be completed until May 1 (or earlier if I, in my sole discretion, decide!) and if needed (samples, limited space) there will be a random drawing done by Mitch.
Jill Wolcott Knits Finishing Challenge
This is now open for signing up! If you are outside of North America and want to sign up, please email me and I will give you my address to use (or you can take it from the end of my newsletter). I don’t want to exclude anyone, I just can’t deal with VAT because I am terrible at paperwork.
Join me, and others, for the Jill Wolcott Knits Finishing Challenge! Read on to learn how to Join and Earn JWKBucks so you can purchase Jill Wolcott Knits samples, patterns, subscriptions, and classes on JillWolcottKnits.com.
Use April 2020 to finish Knitting, Knitting Finishing, and Organizing Projects of any kind that are weighing on you.
Start March 16 by training for the JWK Finishing Challenge (sign up, make your lists, plan your time, organize projects for optimum finishing)!
Look under Sizing for details on Training, March 16 through March 29.
You can enter as many Projects, in any of the categories, as you feel you can finish. When you sign up for the competition you will get links to the paperwork, the Slack channel, and your own personal planning calendar.
To get JWKBucks, you must show Project completion, so if a Project is big, break it into multiple Projects, just in case! Being realistic will bring you your rewards.
