CGOA Announces Design Contest

The following announcement is by Jean Leinhauser, CGOA Design Contest Committee:

We now have the complete judging panel and I'd like to announce them:

Doris Chan, author and designer
Brett Brea of Coats and Clark
Michele Maks of DRG (Annie's Attic, Needlework Shop, etc.)
Cari Clement of Caron International
Jean Leinhauser, Creative Partners, Craft Yarn Council

We added the category of Art Crochet, so the categories are:

Fashion ( for men, women, kids, babies)
Home Decor (afghans, throws, place mats, doilies, tablecloths, bathroom and bedroom accessories, etc)
Accessories (scarves, jewelry, hats, socks)
Crochet as Art (created for display as art rather than for utility)

Designers must be members of CGOA, and may enter as many projects as they wish. They do NOT have to be professional designers. Each completed project with its entry form (downloadable from the CGOA website, Members Only section) must arrive in North Carolina by July 15, 2009.

Projects will then be shipped by CGOA to Buffalo, where they will be judged and
displayed at Chain Link. All entries will be returned to the entrants. No patterns are required. No entries will be accepted after July 15.

Each category will have a first place winner of $300, second, $200 , and third, $100. From the first place winners a Grand Prize winner of $1,000 will be chosen.

To enter, you must be a CGOA member. If you are not a member, but would like to join, you can do so here.

To locate the entry forms for the CGOA Design contest: go to the CGOA website, then click on the Members Only section, enter your member info (member number and a password) and it takes you to the forms.
