5,000 Facebook Fans Contest: SHEEPNADO

We wanted to do something really big to celebrating hitting 5,000 fans on our Facebook page.

So why not a feature movie? Look for SHEEPNADO, coming never to a theater near you. Unfortunately, test audiences found it lacked the bite of the movie that inspired it.

We did manage to salvage one promo poster for the World's Nibbliest Thriller:



You thought the original was baaaaaaaad?
 
But... we bet you can do better. Give us your best tagline for SHEEPNADO in the comments to this blog post. Please leave a way to contact you if you win -- either use one of the log-in options or add your email to the comment in this format: woolenmillstore (at) penwool (dot) com. If we can't contact you, then you can't win.

The Woolen Mill Store staff will pick one Grand Prize Winner and up to two Honorable Mentions. The Grand Prize for the best SHEEPNADO tag line is one and a half yards of Big Thunder blanket weight jacquard fabric in the amber colorway.



It's Grand! It's a prize! It's 1.5 yards of Big Thunder fabric!

Entries will be accepted until 9:59am Pacific time on Monday, August 26, 2013.

In like a lion...OUT LIKE A LAMB!

Ewe better be ready.

A wolf of a tornado...in sheep's clothing.

Counting sheep has never been so difficult.

A whole new meaning to feeling sheepish.

Cloudy with a chance of RAM.

What you felt was SHEAR TERROR!

People are flocking to get out of its path!

They’re not spinning a yarn… It’s real!

Oveja! Oveja! They’re coming!

It’s not Little Bo Peep’s problem anymore!

Beware the bleating on the breeze…

Something woolen this way comes.
