Berkeley-based Vaska, makers of botanical-based laundry soap, is holding a Get Cozy With Vaska Contest, which sounds like it’s right up our alley. Twelve winners will get $300 in cash and a page in the 2010 Vaska Cozy Calendar, sure to be a collector’s item (or so they claim). The contest ends at midnight Jan. 4, 2010, with winners announced on Jan. 10. So now’s the time to get making cozies! The cash would be a nice help in paying off some of my holiday debt, is what I’m thinking. And I appreciate the fact that their PR efforts are focusing on crafters and our mad crafting skills:
“The Get Cozy Contest is a way of introducing the crafts community to laundry care products that conserve the integrity of their designs and, at the same time, we can reward them for their creativity. We know crafters will appreciate Vaska’s softer, brighter, greener results,” says Julia Fry, Vaska creator. Fry is a former fashion designer, whose love of textiles led her to create the herb-based detergent.
