FreeSpirit Fabrics Announces "I am an Artisan" Juried Challenge
FREESPIRIT ANNOUNCES “I AM AN ARTISAN” JURIED CHALLENGE
Kaffe Fassett to curate 12 pieces from special exhibit
Fabricana is pleased to announce the FreeSpirit “I Am An Artisan” challenge where 12 quilters can earn the chance to be selected to exhibit a quilt with Kaffe Fassett at the 2017 Fall International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston, TX.
The challenge encourages quilters to showcase the harmony of color and texture so prevalent in the fabrics of Artisan through the creation of 60” x 60” quilt featuring roughly 80% of the new Artisan by Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The jury will look to select quilts that speak to a time when hand crafting resonated a true dedication, appreciation, skill and love of the craft.
One first place winner will earn a total prize package valued at $4,700 retail, One Viewer’s Choice, selected via social media, will receive a prize package valued at $1,400, and one third place winner, Honorable Mention, will receive 15 yards of Artisan by Kaffe Fassett for FreeSpirit fabrics. All winners will receive a quilt show ribbon!
The challenge runs from January 2, 2017 – June 2, 2017. To purchase Artisan by Kaffe Fassett fabric, visit Fabricana! For challenge specifics, visit www.freespiritfabrics.com/Kaffe-Challenge
