Our 10th Annual StitchCraft Challenge
Posted by Johanna Fox on
It's our 10th Annual StitchCraft Challenge!
What is the StitchCraft Challenge? Each summer, we challenge our customers to make something using a special fabric that we have chosen. This year, between celebrating our tenth anniversary and because folks are spending so much time at home due to COVID-19, we're changing things up a bit!
Here's how the StitchCraft Challenge works -
Purchase a Challenge kit for $10.00 ($12.00 includes shipping from our website).
Make something with your Challenge Fabrics! This year there are THREE fabrics included – one fat quarter of each – and you must use a bit of all of them. The three fabrics are the StitchCraft logo colors and are pictured below! You can add any other fabrics and/or materials, but all three Challenge Fabrics must be visible in your finished project (do not hide them in a purse lining or on a quilt back). You may purchase additional yardage of the Challenge Fabrics if you need more. Quilt, sew, glue, decoupage, staple, paint – whatever you can imagine – with your fabrics.
Bring your Challenge project along with a completed Entry Form to StitchCraft by September 5, 2020. We'll include the Entry Form with your fabric, or you can download it here. If you are not local you may send us photos and a description of your project for us to display virtually. We accept entries in person or via mail. Challenge projects may be kept on display at StitchCraft throughout September/October, and will be available for pick-up beginning October 17. Your name must be securely attached to your project (e.g. quilt label).
You will receive a $10.00 StitchCraft Gift Certificate when you return your finished project (or submit photos online).
We will turn StitchCraft into a gallery of everyone's work. This year, in addition, we'll also post photos online for viewing and voting. Given the state of the world and the COVID-19 pandemic we have not yet scheduled an event for participants; we are waiting to see what will be feasible as far as celebrating. There will not be traditional judging, but we WILL give out awards in many categories. A Viewer's Choice will be awarded on October 9. YOU CAN WIN PRIZES JUST BY PARTICIPATING! To celebrate 10 years, we will be drawing 10 names from the participants throughout the summer to win some awesome prizes from our industry sponsors.

We can't wait to see what you make this year!
