The "Hidden Notion"
Similar to the hidden picture in Sew News Magazine, we've added a fun little activity to our website. Be the first to find the "Hidden Notion" and win a coupon for 3 free tickets to one of our 50/50 drawings. Using a play on words, the Hidden Notion can be a picture, message, tip, or idea. It will be buried (but not too deep) in the website, and you'll know it when you find it. Enjoy exploring our website and have fun searching for the "Hidden Notion."
(HINT: Look for the words "Hidden Notion" and follow the links.)
