Let’s Get Scrappy Contest

July 25 @ 10:00 am - September 30 @ 2:00 pm

Come to the Richmond workshop at 1114 Westbriar Drive and select only yarn that is not a skein but a “scrap ball” size. “Your mission, should you choose to accept it”, (a little “Mission Impossible” theme music inserted here), is to make a colorful FtH project item using only FtH’s scrap cotton, cotton blend, acrylic or acrylic blend yarn. So, be sure to go BOLD with your color choices.

First, take a photo of the scrap balls you are taking and send to fromtheheartstitchers@gmail.com with your name, phone number and email address.  Then, when your project is complete, send a second email with a picture along with a description of the project, pattern used, or any other information that our members would like to know.  We’ll be posting entries on our Facebook page for everyone to enjoy.

If you need help with taking photos, we will be happy to help you at the workshop.  We have many pattern ideas on our website here.  Some easy projects to consider are horseshoe shaped shawls, hats, red, white, and blue squares or any color squares, fidget items, toys, baby blankets, etc.  Make something that you enjoy working on.  You can enter as many times as you like in either category.

We will have a random drawing of one crochet project and one knit project at the conclusion of the contest.    The winner will be announced at the October 7th Retreat.  Winners need not be present to win.

The contest is open from July 25th until September 30th so don’t delay! Get your scrappy, bright colors and start stitching!

See a great sample scrap blanket (to the right) made by Beth Williamson from cotton scraps.  Very bright and colorful!
