I know you are all creative and awesome, what kind of awesomely creative themes would you like to see in any of the Fiber board categories?  This includes Felting, Weaving, Spinning and Dyeing Catagories!
(the following list was compiled from the ideas thread on the fibre boards, and some of them overlap, and I've added the ones from this thread too.)

Challenge Themes/Ideas
- Spinning unusual fibers/items
- Best incorporation of beads/feathers/objects

- complimentary colors
- favorite candy

- vacation spot

- self-portrait in yarn?
- natural fibers only (non-dyed)

-spin an autobiography?: yarn's linear, so people can spin a yarn that symbolizes their life, or important part in it: changing colors, fibers, thichness, adding items, whatever and then it will be their choice whether or not they want to explain it or let the yarn speak for itself.

We could dye or spin, then use something, inspired by our favorite song, book, or movie?

It should probably be narrowed down to one category, but that was my whole thought. It's also late, I think my brain gave up on me.

Cool ideas! I particularly like the song/ music one.  We'd all have to hit up YouTube so we knew what the inspiration was.  We'd learn about all kinds of different music!

A lot of those say "Yarn" but I think they would work all across the fiber boards. Like "inspired by music/book/movie..."
I think a "Learn a new technique" challenge would be fun for everyone, whether it's learning a new technique in a an area you are already familiar with, like for me learning something new about spinning, or going to a different board altogether, like me going weaving. That would be fun and encouraging us in our quests to learn everything we can. I mean, come on, I'm not the only one who wants to learn anything I can read about on the internets, am I?
