Help #WorldPomination ('The Handmade Fair' ticket giveaway!)

If you're a UK crafter (or you live elsewhere but read UK craft press)  I'm pretty sure you will have seen details of The Handmade Fair which will be hosted by Kirstie Allsopp later this month in the grand surroundings of Hampton Court Palace.
Amid the excitement of a great expert line-up and various workshops, it would be easy to miss the details of the Guinness World Record attempt being made there in aid of deafblind charity Sense.

Sense is a national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind - with multi-sensory impairments that are congenital or acquired - and offer a range of housing, educational and leisure opportunities. You can read more about the help they provide here. To raise awareness, Kirstie and the team are hoping to break the record for the longest line of pompoms and they are looking for your help.

If you'd like to take part, simply make three or more pompoms, attach your name and bring them with you to the Fair, or drop them into your local Hobbycraft store. (Once you've started you might find you become addicted - if so, check out some of my recent pompom project ideas!) You can also make a £3 donation to Sense by sending an SMS to 70111 with the word POMPOM in the text. 

To thank you for your help, the event organisers are offering one lucky Crafts from the Cwtch reader a pair of tickets to the event (the date of your choice - I'll be there on the Friday with my pompoms, it would be lovely to see you!).

The giveaway is now closed and the winner has been emailed - thanks to those who entered!
To enter, simply leave a comment below with the following information:
(1) Which of the experts you'd most like to see, and 
(2) Either a contact email address OR your Ravelry name, if you check your messages. 
*If you don't leave ALL this info, I won't have time to find you!!!!* 

The winner will be randomly selected on Wednesday 10th September - good luck!
