Just a short announcement for all Crochet Guild of America members eager to complete their entries to the CGOA 2013 Design Competition. Here is the remaining link in the process, the electronic entry form.
The deadline for entry shipments to arrive at the receiving location is 6 September, 2013. Please complete and submit the form when you are ready to ship your design.
The CGOA Design Competition is an event like no other, celebrating and rewarding crochet creativity and excellence, offering thousands of dollars in cash prizes for original crochet designs in six judging categories. Many thanks to our magnificent sponsors for 2013:
Gwen Blakely-Kinsler, sponsor for the Founder’s Award.
DesigningVashti (Vashti Braha), sponsor for the Technical Merit Award
Tulip Company, makers of Etimo crochet hooks
Karen Whooley/KRW Knitwear sponsor for the People’s Choice Award.
As the producer of the competition since 2010, I am overjoyed to see how the event has developed and continues to attract quality entries from CGOA members across the country as well as internationally. I look forward to seeing your stuff soon, but ultimately it is our panel of judges that you’ll need to impress: Marcy Smith, Editor at Interweave Crochet Magazine; Bobbie Matela, Creative Director at Coats & Clark; Renee Rodgers, Designer and owner of CrochetRenee Designs.
I hope to meet you at the CGOA 2013 conference in Charlotte/Concord, NC, where we will announce the winners during an awards ceremony on 3 October. Best of luck!
