Khyati here and I am super excited to kick start another monthly craft challenge. Before I do that I wanted to address a couple of points.
1) Winners – Guys sorry for the delay in announcing winners. Yes we know we have not announced winners since March 2020 challenge but where we live and our warehouses operate from, the shipping was closed till May end/June 1st week so I hope you understand why we did not announce the winner as we cannot ship out goodie bags anyways. Another thing that I wanted to point out for those who missed our company’s live session where we talked about how HNDMD and CrafTangles started we talk about how we are a startup and small family run business where we have to overlap on a lot of tasks. Currently due to pandemic employee crunch is a big issue for us. So we are struggling to complete our day to day tasks and we go over and above to make sure most of our customer’s orders are shipped out in timely manners and reach to you within acceptable time limits because for us our customers who have shown faith in us and placed orders with us since the 1st day of lockdown and were willing to wait for those orders is the highest trust you can give us and they will always be our priority. So yes we are lagging in other areas like social media updates etc because literally all our energy (of me, Gaurav and our employees) is being spent on making sure that the orders are shipped out on timely basis and the old backlog of orders are cleared out and the customer support.
This is part and parcel of life and with the current pandemic, I know many businesses including ours are facing a very unique challenge which we never like to comment on the social platform because everybody has their issues, but unfortunately, I had to talk about it here today. Having said that we appreciate all our challenge participants and all we ask form you all is some trust and patience. We have been here for more than a decade now in the Indian crafting industry and plan to be here for another couple of decades and yes we will announce winners as soon as we get some bandwidth and time, hopefully very soon so keep an eye out on our social media handles.
2) Change in Challenge Guidelines – From now on i.e from July challenge the 2 winners instead of getting a goodie bag will now get a coupon code worth Rs 500 for CrafTangles products which can be redeemed on our website www.hndmd.com (This coupon code is for products only, shipping is extra and this is only for CrafTangles products. The time limit of coupon code is going to be 7 days from the day you get it so make sure you place an order by then.)
3) Know more about us – For those who want to know more about our company, how we started, what challenges we faced and some crafty chit chat, I recently did a live with my dear friend Drishti, you can see that live here on Facebook.
4) Design Team Call – Yes our design team call had opened a week back and we will be closing our applications soon, so if your interested please check our DT call link for all the details.
So those were some of the points I wanted to talk about today, please feel free to comment below if you have any query for us and we will be happy to help. Now coming to the challenge this month the challenge topic is: PATTERNED PAPERS / STENCILS
