We are lucky to have 'Just Our Yarn', my favorite yarn vendor, sponsoring an exhibit with cash and gift certificate prizes for Northern Wefts 2011. The Exhibit is to be judged by Tom Knisely. Registration is online at their website justouryarn.com . But time is getting short to enter this exhibit as registration is through May 5, 2011.
Tom Knisely is the General Manager and resident instructor for The Mannings Handweaving School and Supply Center in East Berlin, PA. This exhibit is open to anyone, not just members of Midwest Weavers, so get your entry ready and sign up. First place prize is $250, just think $250 to buy more Just Our Yarn fibers to make something beautiful. You can't win if you don't enter, that is my motto!. I am sure you have something laying around the weaving studio that is at least 50% JOY yarn...... take a risk and enter it now.... Before May 5th.
If you remember Margaret Roach Wheeler - Keynote Speaker for Roots 2007 in Nebraska her garments look like they were woven with a JOY warp. Check out my previous blog about Margaret Roach Wheeler or her website.
