Calling Craftsy Designers: STITCHES East Design Competition

Here’s your opportunity to go from hobbyist to mega star!

We are teaming up with STITCHES and Fiesta Yarns to offer all Craftsy knit and crochet designers the opportunity to compete for a chance to have their one of a kind design featured in a fashion show! As an added bonus, the winning designer will also receive a $1,000 grand prize!

At every STITCHES event there is a highly anticipated fashion show, where industry professionals and attendees eagerly await to see unique designs handmade by top designers.

We want to give the Craftsy designer community the chance to have their unique shawl, sweater, vest or accessory walk down the runway to an audience of influencers, designers and professionals.

How to enter:

  1. Design a pattern and knit or crochet your piece using Fiesta Yarns (any color, combination or line).
  2. Take a picture of your finished piece.
  3. Upload both your pattern and your photos by September 4, 2012.
  4. Include this somewhere in the title: “STITCHES Fashion Show” and the name of your design.

The designs will then be juried by Craftsy, STITCHES, and Fiesta Yarns. We will announce winners September 4th. We encourage designers to promote themselves and we will consider community votes in the form of “hearts” on your projects. The top 3 designs will be featured on our blog.

The first place winner will be featured in the STITCHES East Fashion Show in October, 2012. The pattern will be publicized at our booth and on And remember, the winner also receives a $1,000 grand prize!

Good luck, we can’t wait to see what you make!
