July 2017 Instagram Challenge Requirements

July 2017 Challenge Requirements (Read our original post about this challenge for the complete set of rules and more details about this year-long challenge.)


  • The July Challenge topic is HAND EMBROIDERY
  • Minimum of three separate Instagram posts (one photo per post).
  • Hand embroider one of two samplers using a minimum of 5 different embroidery stitches.
  • First sampler choice - Hobby Lobby Embroidery Basics: Make Your Own Sampler (free pattern and tutorial found here on YouTube)
  • Second sampler choice - CLMQG Sampler designed by Lorrie H (pattern available for free download here)
  • Your sampler does not need to be incorporated into a finished project.
  • Deadline: Post photos of your inspiration/materials, project progress, and finished project by Friday, August 11.
  • Bring your finished project to the Sunday, August 13 CLMQG meeting.
  • You may start posting photos now.
Each July challenge post must include the following elements in the photo caption:
  • @crystallakemqg
  • #clmqgigchallengejuly
  • At least two other relevant hashtags (no spaces and no special characters are allowed within the body of Instagram hashtags)
Additional Info:  
  • Use the Hobby Lobby YouTube video for stitch help with either project.
  • Check other YouTube tutorials for more embroidery help.
  • Remember to add relevant info to your photo captions.  The more information you can provide, the more interested people will be in your photos!
  • Be extra mindful when typing your hashtags and "@crystallakemqg".  If these are not correctly typed your photo(s) will not qualify for challenge prizes.
  • Use a space before and after each @ or # string.  Don't put spaces within the @ or # string of characters. 
  • You must be present at time of drawings to win prizes.
  • If you complete the month's challenge requirements but are unable to attend the meeting, you will still receive your qualification button for that month but will not be entered in the monthly prize drawing.
How will you know if your photos qualify for the challenge?
  • Thumbs Up emoji comment from CLMQG tells you photo meets requirements.
  • Gold Star emoji comment from CLMQG means you have qualified that month with 3 correct photos
