Crafty Candy: Launch and Giveaway

Craft Candy

Regular readers will of course know I am a craft addict, but I’m also addicted to my smart phone. So when Zoe at Craft Candy contacted me to tell me about their new craft based smart phone app*, I was a little bit excited.

Craft Candy App

The Craft Candy website evolved from Zoe’s own craft blog which collated and shared craft events and classes happening in London. It has since developed to support craft bloggers, organisations, businesses and mostly recently an app for discovering what’s on near you.

Stand anywhere or even move from place to place and the App will tell you what is going on locally to where you are standing and direct you to the event with the GPS App (no more Google searches).  Nifty!

The App is a beta version available to download for free from the 15th March on both Apple and Android devices. I’m pretty psyched about being able to find craft information so easily on my phone when I’m out and about. What are you waiting for people?!

I mentioned a giveaway didn’t I?! 

To celebrate the launch of their app, Craft Candy have been kind enough to send me two iPhone cross stitch cases to give away to my readers! (These will fit the iPhone 4).

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning one of the cases is:

Good luck! I will draw the two winners using random.org on Friday 29th March 2013 and they will be announced on this blog shortly after.

Make sure you follow Craft Candy on Twitter and check out the app. Let me know what you think!

NB: This competition is open to UK readers only.

    Ooh this sounds like a great app. Am off to download now! My favourite crafty place in Bristol is The Bristol School of Sewing and Textiles. Have taken some great courses here in crochet and knitting socks. 🙂

    Glad to see you back! I don’t have an iphone, so don’t enter me in the giveaway, but I am glad to see there’s an android version of the app which I shall try!

    Hi! The app looks good 🙂 There’s not much up here – I would love to visit Make. There are some classes at our local Hobby Craft that I might pop along to soon.
    I tweeted about the giveaway too!

    Ooooh! Great app. I shall be downloading that for my pretty {but would be prettier with a beautiful cross stitch cover} iphone 4 when it arrives tomorrow. It is very tricky to decide on my favourite craft venue…it has to be between my kitchen table which sees a lot of action from silver work to knitting, not to mention all the children’s activities, and the fabulous Swatchmaker in Laurencekirk. She will be opening her back shop and starting her amazing range of classes very soon. Eeep!

    I’m lucky in Liverpool. I have Abakhan Fabrics for lots of bargain supplies and Liverpool Sewing Club for creative company and new ideas.
