OCD Community Boost Contest #7: Highlighting NeedleWorkMonday

in OCD8 months ago
Authored by @ybanezkim26

It's time for another contest! This is getting insane!

I'm so excited to post the announcement of winners of our 6th contest because we saw another record in terms of number of entries and of course, engagement within Home Edders community. Because of that, let's have the 7th contest right away. The winners of the 6th contest will be announced two (2) days from now, which means I'll post on Sunday (PST). This will give the moderators ample time to decide whose entries stood out.

OCD has been at the forefront of supporting different niche communities in Hive. Under the Community Incubation Program, OCD has been helping community leaders and moderators grow their genre-specific communities through focused curation. As observed in the latest update, communities under the program have grown both in number of subscriptions and in engagements within their members. By highlighting great posts by users in a particular community, they are encouraged to level up their game or maintain the quality of their posts.

To further help communities, OCD is now conducting weekly contests! The aim is to increase subscriptions and engagements by highlighting a particular community for a week. All other communities within the incubation program will carry on with the usual curation activities. With the help of community leaders and moderators, we at OCD will incentivize more those posts within that highlighted community for a week. It's Needle Work Week for two weeks!

Community of the Week

NeedleWorkMonday Community

About the Community

About: A community for all things needlework ie. knitting, crocheting, sewing, cross-stitch, quilting and many more!
Description: NeedleWorkMonday is a community of needle artists from all around the world that share our love and passion for the needle arts. We are a supportive group that encourages one another and supports each other’s work through upvotes, comments and positive feedback.

We get together every week to share our work, ideas, tips, patterns, shortcuts and to inspire the Hive community. Our hopes are to encourage crafters to dust off their needles and get crafting again as well as encouraging others to give it a try for the first time.

On Monday’s we use the #needleworkmonday tag and on all other days we use the #needlework tag.

We are currently apart of the @OCD’s Community Incubation Program. We submit quality posts from the NeedleWorkMonday Community to them for further curation support from @ocdb and @blocktrades.

Please Visit Our FAQs for posting guidelines at:


Thank you ~

Rules: (1) Post in the community. (2) Add #needleworkmonday if you post on a Monday. (3) Add #needlework if you post on any other day. (4) Use the posting guidelines listed in our FAQs if you would like to receive a vote and a chance to be featured in our weekly showcase.

Contest Rules

1. Subscribe to NeedleWorkMonday Community.
2. Post in NeedleWorkMonday Community. Be creative in your post(s).
Details: There's only one (1) theme for this contest:

(1) Share a needlework project that represents your character.

This contest aims to encourage needle artists to connect who they are with what they love to do. Include why you chose the project and how it speaks your character. Remember a needle must be involved in your project to qualify as needlework. Please show the process of your work.

3. Reply the link of your entry(s) in this contest post for easier curation.
4. Make your title unique and descriptive of your article. This is an added rule after observing that majority of the titles are the same as the title of this contest. DO NOT make this "OCD Community Boost Contest #7: Highlighting NeedleWork Monday" as your title. It's so cringing.
5. Engage within the community. This will be given consideration during the evaluation of your post(s).
6. Quality content is still given much premium and that's subject to the current set of standards of NeedleWorkMonday Community.
7. Considering the amount of time needed for needlework, this contest will run for two (2) weeks instead of the usual weekly contests. All posts in the community within the 2 weeks that this contest is run will be curated by OCD. However, plagiarism attempts and other forms of abuse will also be reported and dealt with accordingly.
8. At the end of the two (2) weeks, OCD will highlight top five (5) posts within those two weeks. These posts are the ones that truly shine within the community.
9. While not mandatory, retweeting this contest post will be very much appreciated.

I think it is a great idea to carry out this contest, not only to obtain some gratification but also to know the knitting jobs of all the people who love crafts and crochet, I love to knit and I have been doing it for 20 years. girl, thanks to my mother who started me in knitting. @needleworkmonday

Que hermoso quedó el Punto de Cruz amiga @rosauradels. Lo que más me gusta de este tipo de bordado es que la tela te ayuda mucho con esos huequitos a hacer los puntos. Excelente.

I love the craft, and participate in the contest! Thank you, I leave my entry:


Me Encanta la manualidad, y participar en el concurso! Gracias , dejo mi entrada

Appreciating the way OCD continues to develop and support the various communities of Hive. It matters and it seems to be really starting to make headway!

Hi, I have a question, can I recycle? I mean take a damaged garment and turn it into something else?

Hi @mariangeltarg!

Yes you certainly can. As long as it’s your creation it doesn’t matter what materials you use or where they come from. We love upcycling projects ;)

Thank you very much! Can I create a piece using someone else's tutorial and patterns? Of course I will give credits and mention the source.

 8 months ago  

You’re welcome :)

Yes, using a pattern/tutorial is also okay as long as you mention the source and give credits as you stated ;)

Have Fun!

Tough contest! Will it be okay if I share a post on be half of my sister? Unfortunately I don't have needlework skill.

Does your sister have her own Hive account to share it with us?

We are looking for each individual Hiver to share their own original work :)

You can keep an eye out here for more contests from other communities that may fit your niche/skill ;)

Thanks for your comment. My sis doesn't have Hive account. Unfortunately she is bit backward with technology and she doesn't even use facebook. Appreciate your suggestion. I will keep an eye for other contests that fits my skill :)

Yes, I subscribed, I will do it again.

Thanks for confirming @jhonnygo ;)

This is really lovely. I have to bring out my machines for this one, I love forward to participating in this particular contest.

Los retos me entusiasman y este se ve muy bueno, el momento es ideal para retomar la apasionante actividad de la costura. Saludos y activåndome.

Looooove this opportunity (secretly I belive the @needleworkmonday community should rule the world, but I am clever enough to never speak this out aloud, never...)
So, here is my entry:
But every putting the jokes away: I am always in awe about the great curation and support the @ocd community gives: love you all.

Greetings! Here is my entry, I had a lot of fun doing it and I am glad to learn about a community where I can share one of my hobbies:
