June – Work of Our Hands Show
June 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Ever wanted to strut your stuff on a runway? Hoped to see something you’ve created be featured in the spotlight? Wished you could show off something that you are proud of making? Here is your chance!
The Guild’s June 20 meeting will be our annual Work of Our Hands Show, which will provide multiple opportunities to display and showcase hand works created by our members (knitted crocheted, hooked, woven, etc.) This will be different than the ‘traditional’ fashion show we have held in the past as there will be multiple components and ways to participate.
For those who like to strut your stuff, there is a runway component. An MC will read the information you have provided on your pieces. And models will be available for those who would prefer not to strut their own stuff (if you’d like to be a model please let us know).
Additional to the runway, we will have spots available for showcasing items that typically aren’t showcased in that medium – think your lovely knitted socks, crocheted stuffed toys, mitts, cup cozies… Basically there will be a spot provided for anything hand created that you wish to show off!
So how do you sign up to showcase an item? We are taking submissions by email or at a meeting and ask you to provide us with some information in order for us to plan and prepare accordingly. Group submissions of particular patterns or items are definitely welcome (think L’Enveloppe, Lanesplitter Skirt, or Clapotis).
The deadline for submissions is May 16, 2018. Submit your completed 2018 work of our hands submission form via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Work of our Hands Show Submission” in the subject line or drop off your completed form at the April Guild meeting.
We are very much looking forward to celebrating our members’ creations. Now it’s your turn to figure out what to create between now and then to showcase! Time to get making…
If you are participating in the Frolic Make A Long, this is the ideal time to flaunt your stuff!
