Fall Competition 09


Announcing our Fall competition! Show off your skills and win wonderful prizes by participating!


Categories:

Handspinning
Knitting/Crochet
Weaving/Felting

How to Enter:
Create a project using only materials supplied by “Phat” shops. Your tools (knitting needles/hooks/wheels/felting needles) may be of mass commercial origin. The point of the competition is to explore the Indie Phat Shops. You may do searches on this blog to find featured shops, or look under the contributor section of the website (http://www.phatfiber.com). When in doubt, ask the seller before purchasing materials if he/she is “Phat”. You may use your samples or samples given to you by box recipients. You also may enter all three categories. Please use one project per category. If you will stitch using your own handspun, you may enter the handspun in the handspun category and then stitch/weave with it.
How the winners will be determined: You must submit photos (at least 1 good one and up to 3) of your finished work to phatfiber@yahoo.com with “fall contest submission” in the subject line. You must also briefly state materials used (to certify “phatness”).
The deadline to Submit your Projects is December 20th. The winner to be announced after the anonymous voting (yes, you'll get to vote too!) is closed (around January 1st). Everyone is eligible for this competition, but if you are a contributor to Phat Fiber, you must use another contributor’s materials when making your project- minimal supplementation with your own materials will be allowed (less than 10% ) since you’re phat too.
We will post the photos to the Ravelry group anonymously and they will be voted on there by everyone.

Prizes:
This competition, we will have prizes generously donated by our contributors, there will be a thread devoted to Phat Fiber Prizes on our Ravelry group!

A question: are we allowed to add any non fiber related items to our entry? I'm thinking beads, etc. Please advise.

Beads and embellishments are perfectly fine!

We want to have fun, and support our Phat Fiber Artists at the same time :)
