Our First Soap Challenge Club Winner!!

This month we had 122 soapmakers from all over the world participating in the very first Soap Challenge Club!! Many of us learned how to do the peacock swirl for the very first time! Each participant had the chance to win an 18-bar slab mold with silicone liner from Brambleberry. Only Club members were eligible to vote for the winner: Tanya Bainbridge of The Stonesfield Soap Company! Here is a photo of her lovely soap:

Before she even knew she had won, I received a lovely email from Tanya yesterday:

Just to say a huge ‘thank you’ for the chance to try out the Peacock swirl…what I have gained from learning the technique from you, giving me the chance to make a soap that I can say that I am truly delighted with, is well worth it in its own right, competition or not. This is one I shall definitely be making again in the future – I love it! It has been wonderful to see other soapers’ creations – quite inspirational!

She’s right! There were so many fabulous and talented soapmakers who participated – the voting was VERY close! In fact, if you’d like to see all the entries (not everyone chose to add their soap to the link-up) you can see them HERE.

I hope we’ll have more folks join us next month when we do the Mantra Swirl! Registration will open on Monday, June 24th!
