TDF 2018 Schedule of Challenges, Topics & Prizes
Here is what we have so far. You can participate every day in all or just pick a few. To enter simply post a picture of what you are working on each day on our Shepherds Talk 'TDF' 2018 Facebook Group. Names will be selected randomly for prizes. We will continue to add surprises right up to the start on July 7. If you would like to donate a prize, just let us know and we will add you to our list of sponsors. Notice that there are some very specific challenges, so gather your fiber . . .
