Can you help us?


TEAM CALL

The only requirement is you must be on Facebook 😊

There are a core group of us who regularly maintain these lists.  We also have a few floaters for if and when they are needed.  If one of us is taken ill or cannot for any other reason update their list(s), we either have a sign up sheet if it is known ahead of time, or one of us will fill in if there is an emergency.  We would also like to add some more content if we get enough people.

Some of these lists only take about half an hour to update, others a little longer, but they are fun to do as well as a great way to keep in touch with the challenges going on around the world. We are a very friendly group of people and would welcome others onto the team. Ideally, we would like to recruit 3 more people who could each take a list updating it each week.

If more people volunteer they will be welcome and perhaps we can start to expand the site and share the news about other things.

All that is required is that you have a computer with internet access and if you are reading this, you do.  Can you spare perhaps half an hour a week to visit the sites listed and update the challenge details?  This is a blogger site very easy to use. We have a 'private' Facebook group where we share about challenges as well as our crafty (and other) news.

If you would like to help or know more, please drop us a line at janesgrapevine@yahoo.co.uk with "Team Call" in the subject line.  Please include a bit about you and why you think you’d like to join our little family.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Challenge For Days - Wednesday challenges

We would LOVE some more help with keeping the challenge lists up to date, and currently have a Team Call out - please see our post HERE for details of how to apply. 

As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  


Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!
