Craftster's 10th Anniversary Cross-Category Challenge


Craftster is turning 10!! That's right, August marks 10 years of running with scissors all over the internet! In honor of this momentous time, we're hosting a cross-category challenge! Every category will have the same challenge with the same entry times. The 10 category winners with the most votes will be put head-to-head-to-head-to... you get it.... for a GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE!!!


Our amazing GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE is courtesy of the fabulous Coats and Clark! The Grand Prize Winner will receive the following:
  • A canvas Red Heart project bag/tote
  • 6 sheets of Phoomph! in both Stiff and Soft
  • The September/October 2013 edition of Crochet Today!
  • 3 skeins of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn
  • A 6mm Susan Bates Bamboo Handle Crochet Hook
  • Dubonnet Poncho crochet pattern from Red Heart
  • A stitchable iPhone 4/4s case

AND!

Your choice of an item from our main Craftster shop!


The theme for this challenge is "What Craftster means to me." Now, don't be scared of this theme! Craftster is made by YOU, Craftster can mean different things to different people so whatever it means to you, that's great!! Still unsure it's as easy as I say? Here's some examples that are just the tip of the iceberg!

  • "To me, Craftster means trying new things! Here's a project featuring a technique I've never tried before!"
  • "To me, Craftster means tutorials! Here's a project I made from a tutorial I found on the boards."
  • "To me, Craftster means swapping! Here's a project I'm sending in a swap."
  • "To me, Craftster means a community where I can show off my geekiness! Here's a project that relates to this thing I'm interested in!"

See? Not so bad, eh? Seriously, as long as you can describe why you feel your project reflects something Craftster represents to you, then you're good!

You can find the challenge threads for each specific category in this list! They will list the full rules and the prize for that category. Smiley

I posted my project in the crochet section, but it isn't showing up on the challenge gallery. So did I post in the wrong section or has it not been added yet? If I posted in the wrong section, please let me know where it is suppose to go and how to. Thanks.

Congratulations to Belladune!!!

Her project, Community - The yarn that Craftster Spun, won the GRAND PRIZE sponsored by Coats & Clark!



Her project perfect exemplifies Craftster in my mind; She gathered lots of different fibers from Craftster members all over the globe and spun all of the seemingly incompatible fibers into one beautiful skein.

Congratulations again Belladune! We're glad that you're part of the Craftster community!

Thank you, Jungrrl!!  I'm glad I'm part of this community too.  It's an oasis on the internet! So much creativity and love here.  I'm stoked about the prize package! You can bet I'll be whipping that yarn up into something nice with those fancy crochet hooks.  I miss crocheting! Hope there's something fun in that magazine (who am I kidding, of course there will be Cheesy)

I'm so glad you won. Not that the other entries weren't awesome, but I'm a yarn maker as well and that is simply the best yarn, community yarn! Contrats, girlfriend.
