COME ONE, COME ALL
to the Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair’s Garment Extravaganza!
We have partnered up with Fine Line Creative Art Center with help from the Windy City Knitting Guild to create a unique new feature for Saturday’s Fair.
The all new Garment Extravaganza consists of three parts:
Runway Presentation: We will accept original, wearable-art and present the garments to the public in a Runway Presentation on Saturday, June 23 at 1pm.
Wearable Art Sale: Entries for sale will be available Saturday from 3pm to 6pm in the FairWear Booth.
Awards: Three awards will be announced at the Runway Presentation: Best of Show - $200; Most Creative Use of Materials - $100; Best Use of Color - $100.
Who should enter? Anyone who designs and creates their own unique garments may enter. The entries can be knitted, woven, crocheted, felted, quilted, sewn, etc, etc. Garments do not have to be for sale, although we encourage it. Entrants may also choose to sell patterns or kits through the Wearable Art Sale. We have left this very open to encourage more entries.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRY: April 15. There can be NO extensions, we need time to put it together. Get complete information and sign up at www.fiberandfolk.com/garment.htm
Note: this presentation is unique to the Fair and has nothing at all to do with Fine Line CAC’s beautiful Uncommon Threads Wearable Art Runway Show. Consequently, Uncommon Threads and Folk & Fiber are different shows and you must enter each independently.
Who can attend the Runway Presentation & Sale? Anyone who comes to the Fair! This is a part of the Fair on Saturday; there is no extra cost or admission for attending either the Runway Presentation or the Wearable Art Sale. Sale is Saturday ONLY.
Our many thanks and gratitude to Fine Line Creative Arts Center for offering their valued expertise and help and our continued thanks to Windy City Knitting Guild for helping us to make it happen.
