What Is the Treasure Hunt?
(Note: This is just a copy of the OFFICIAL thread taking place over in the National Crochet Month 2011 folder. I've placed a copy here in Giveaways to help get more attention for the contest. Most responses in this thread will eventually be moved over to the official thread.)


In honor of National Crochet Month 2011, Crochetville is partnering with a number of indie designers, spinners, dyers, and hook and toolmakers to sponsor the Crochetville NatCroMo 2011 Treasure Hunt.

Each indie business has donated one or more special items for our super-special crochet gift basket that will be given to one lucky winner at the end of the Treasure Hunt.

We hope the Treasure Hunt will make Crochetville members and site visitors aware of some really fabulous crochet businesses and encourage everyone to spend some time browsing through the websites of our participating indie businesses.

Keep checking this thread as we will be posting photos of new items for the gift basket as our indie businesses confirm what they are donating.

How Does the Treasure Hunt Work?

Each participating business will have hidden this Treasure Hunt logo somewhere on their site by March 8. The contest does not officially start until March 8, so please don't waste time hunting for it before then since many businesses may not upload the logo until that day.

Contest participants shall:

  • Visit the site of each participating business.
  • Find the logo hidden on the site.
  • Enter the URL of the page that contains the logo or the URL of the photo itself on the contest entry form.
  • Complete the contest entry form (see post #2 of this thread). (Forms submitted with missing or incorrect URLs will be declared ineligible.)
  • Return the contest entry form via PM to Crochetville Contest Entries by 11:59 PM CST March 25, 2011.

Sorry, everyone. Somehow the link for the logo got messed up. You should now be able to see the logo in the first post.

However, the contest does not begin until March 8. I'm sorry that wasn't clear earlier. Most participating websites will not be hiding the logo until March 8. So you probably don't want to waste any time looking for it before then. :D

Be sure you don't submit until you see the notice that the entry form is the FINAL entry form, which means all participating companies will be listed on it.

The winner will be selected by a random drawing, so the time you submit a completed isn't going to matter. Being first won't affect your chances of winning.

I'm still waiting on confirmation from several that the logo has been hidden on their site.

As soon as I get confirmation from everyone, I'll update the entry form to say that it's the final version.

Be sure you click on the links in the final version of the entry form to be taken to the correct website. Some may be using a website, some may be using a blog, some may be using a facebook page. The link in the FINAL version of the entry form will get you to the right site.

Sorry for the delay everyone. Technical issues are resolved, the logo has been hidden on each site, so the hunt may now begin!

Remember to click on the links in the final version of the entry form. Some participants had to end up using their blogs or Facebook pages instead of their websites.

Good luck!

I'm confused, and I feel like an idiot for it, because I was sure that someone else would have the same question/problem! On some of the sites, I THINK I have found the icon, but I'm not sure if it's the hidden icon or just the explanation of the treasure hunt. I find the icon, but along with it is an explanation of the treasure hunt and a link to crochetville. So I am beating myself up, looking all over the site to try to find the "real" icon, and I can't seem to find it! so, since I can't seem to find it anywhere else on the site, the icon with the explanation MUST be the ONE, right? Please help.
By the way, this is so awesome. I'm having fun looking for the icon, but also, I am seeing a lot of sites that I didn't know about! I am so glad to be introduced to these sites!!

The hidden icon does not appear on any page that has a listing of all the other participating businesses along with a description of the contest. The icon that appears on the contest description/participating businesses page is just there for reference, in case you need a reminder of what the logo looks like. Or in case you first find out about the contest as you're browsing that site.

The hidden icon will appear to be on a regular page of the site. In one case, the icon doesn't seem to be really "hidden" at all, and is on a VERY easy to find page, so you may be second-guessing yourself thinking that couldn't possibly be the right icon. But it is the right one, as long as it's not on the contest description/participating businesses page.

Does that help?
