2011 Share Fiber Exhibition and Competition
Shareholders, start your spinning wheels... It's time to stop hoarding that lovely roving and create some Awesome!
I'm happy to announce the 2011 Share Fiber Exhibition and Competition! We're looking for finished items made from 100% Jacob's Reward Farm share fiber: knitted, crocheted, woven, felted, or a combination of all of those.
You've got until August 31, 2011 to complete your piece(s) and submit them to us here at the farm either in person, or by high-quality photos, for judging. Winners will be chosen in each discipline, and prizes awarded. The artist with the piece judged Best in Show will win a 2012 JRF Full Fiber Share. Because you just can't have too much bodacious fiber.
If you don't want your piece judged, you can just submit it for exhibition at our "Share the Harvest" Fall Gift Market on October 15. Everyone who submits a piece for exhibition will be entered in a drawing for a 2012 JRF Half Share.
We want to display all the pieces and announce all the winners at the Fall Gift Market, to show everyone just what our talented shareholders can do, and to show how alpaca and wool blend fibers can be transformed from that fuzzy stuff on the hoof. And to get your share fiber out of the closet and on your wheels and needles!
The entry form is available by clicking on the tab above in the dark green bar. Enter as many pieces as you'd like - the sky's the limit.
