2020 Guild Challenge

2020/40th Anniversary Guild Challenge

Create something inspired by a photograph. It can be a photo you took, a photo you have permission to post on a website, a page from a calendar, or it can be a photo of a depiction of a work of art, such as a post card sold by an art museum that features a work of art.

Knit, spin, weave, felt, crochet, weave a basket, dye fiber, blend fiber, create wearable art, or color the wool of a fiber animal you are raising. Submit as many items as you like.

To submit an item, you must submit a digital photograph that inspired you. If you did not take the photo and do not have a digital copy, you can take a photo of the picture that inspired you. You can email a photo or attach it to a Guild Message email. If you need help with submitting a digital photo, please let us know! Photos should be submitted to Donna Johnson at web@foothillfibersguild.org. When you attach your photo, attach as large a copy as you can. Don’t hesitate to contact us for questions about how to submit a photo. Given the uncertainty of meeting in person, submit photos of your finished object(s) for a slide show that will be presented via Zoom or in person.

All photos must be in no later than Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
