Plaid Creators: Craft Challenge!

header-063017_CreatorsEvent_06-(1).jpg
Sometimes crafting can take days, weeks or even years! Deciding on colors, surfaces and coming up with new ideas - all fun ways to get lost in the process. BUT - what if you only had 60 minutes to craft, from concept to creation? When our Plaid Creators joined us at Plaid HQ last month, to learn about our new products, we surprised them with the ultimate craft challenge!

The nine Creators were split into teams of three, and each got a table, tea towel, chair and wooden crate to create a vignette in an hour! 

Everyone enthusiastically dove into the challenge with paintbrushes flying!

The first group presented this sea inspired coastal chic theme that has us yearning for sand between our toes. Especially clever? They whipped up a little pillow from the dishtowels and stuffed it with yarn!

POL_CreatorsEvent_bty_vignettes2_071017.jpgWe were amazed at what the teams were able to do in one short hour! Which one is your favorite and what do you think our judges chose? (Hint: The winners celebrated the red, white and blue in style!)
