Summer is slowly coming to a close, and we're very excited to reveal the Ed's Snail Mail summer competition winners.

Back at the beginning of summer, we released the much loved Otis the Snail project along with our annual summer competition. With the majority of our community restricted to their home due to the COVID pandemic, we wanted to do something to help our crochet fans stay connected and social. So with the release of the summer competition and Otis the Snail, we also released the Ed's Snail Mail postcard. To enter the competition it was a simple case of crocheting your best Otis and snapping a picture of him at a fantastic postbox location before uploading to Instagram.

Since the competition opened we've had hundreds of photos of postboxes from around the world. Here are the winners...

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the competition, which has now closed for Summer 2020. However, due to Otis' popularity, you can still get your hands on a kit to crochet your own version of this well-travelled snail. Don't forget to share your progress with us @toft_uk!
