Threadbanger hosts Rob and Corinne will be at Maker Faire this weekend, and are hosting a Twitter-based scavenger hunt with an opportunity to get into the Faire for free and with a Threadbanger-branded Janome sewing machine as the grand prize. Fans of ThreadBanger’s weekly DIY shows can join in and start finding scavenger hunt clues by following ThreadBanger on Twitter.
The first ten people to arrive on Sunday, May 31st at Maker Faire’s Will Call table with the secret password, which will be revealed via ThreadBanger’s twitter account, will receive a free ticket to the event and the next clue to continue the hunt. The first two people to arrive will also receive a brand new Kodak Camera. Prizes will be given at each checkpoint with the grand prize being a ThreadBanger-branded Janome sewing machine. Other partners in the contest include Coats and Clark thread company, Simplicity Patterns, Generation-T, Make Magazine, O’Reilly Media and Yudu Personal Screen Printing.
The scavenger hunt will take tweeps through some of Maker Faire’s best stops. Along the way, participants will pick up new clues by tweeting passwords to @Threadbanger while collecting craft-happy prizes from selected stops. Those who finish the hunt successfully will get to compete for the grand prize: a brand new Threadbanger-branded Janome sewing machine.
