A couple-three things:
As per Tracy's suggestion, there's a permanent link to the wiki contest and how-to in the right hand side now, underneath the ads. Click there whenever you need reassurance.
Also, in addition to the $100 gift certificate from Janet at Lanetz Living, Rita at Chez Cemetarian has offered a $50 gift certificate for 2nd place! Thanks! UPDATE! Michelle from Patterns from the Past *and* Tina at What-I-Found *and* Jen at MOMSPatterns have all offered additional prizes! There will be much to be won, oh, yes!
Several people have emailed me asking for tips on photographing patterns rather than scanning them … anyone got any? Please leave them in the comments …
One more thing: lots of people on Flickr have posted pictures of their vintage patterns under a CC (Creative Commons) license … as long as you give attribution (a link back to the Flickr page) it should be kosher to add these pattern images to the wiki! Try this search to see what you find … or you may want to leave comments on people's Flickr images encouraging them to contribute to the wiki!
