UPDATE March 30, 2010!
Due to popular
demand and a few pleading requests for extensions, we are extending the
One-Yard Wonder submission deadline until Sunday, April 11, so bring
your crafty goodness!! Finish up the projects you're working on, and get
to work on the ones you thought you wouldn't have time to finish - now
We're excited to announce that hot on the heels of the first 101 One Yard Wonders, A follow-up volume is already in the works!Hey there, Seamster Extraordinaire!
We are excited to invite you to contribute to our second book in the One-Yard Wonders book series!
Inspired by the success of 101 One-Yard Wonders, Fabric
Extravaganza: One-Yard Wonders will be geared towards sewers with at
least a little experience and a great love of fabric - ALL
While the original 101 One-Yard Wonders book was divided by project type, Fabric Extravaganza: One-Yard Wonders will be divided by specific fabric types. Possible chapters include the following fabrications:
As with 101 One-Yard Wonders, we're focusing on projects that take no more than one yard of fabric to complete. Ideally your project would use nearly the full yard of fabric (no quarter yard projects please, unless they are part of a group project which takes up a full yard).
By all means, please feel free to add trims, zippers, Velcro, buttons, interfacing -- whatever additional stash stuff & notions might be necessary to complete the project. We only ask that your project uses one-- and only one--yard of a single fabric.
We invite you to contribute your original designs for home decorating items, baby items, personal accessories, toys, garments (for men, women, and children), outdoors, pets, seasonal projects ... whatever! The categories are open ended, and the possibilities are limitless! We can't wait to see how you want to use your different fabrics!
The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2010. Projects will be considered as we receive them, so try to get them in sooner rather than later. The only stipulation is that your original designs may not have been previously published in a book or anthology. Email notifications will be sent May 1, 2010 with detailed next steps.
