If you're looking at that new Fiber Arts Contest and just can't figure out what the heck it's supposed to mean, you're not alone.
Traditionally we've run knitting contests on Instructables. I love our knitting contests, but I know our community is capable of doing so much more with yarn and other fibers that I wanted to open it up to all sorts of skills.
The contest page describes acceptable entries as involving "Spinning, Weaving, Felting, Knitting, Crocheting, and Tatting," but I also encourage entries for tools and tips that accompany these crafts. You might notice it does not mention sewing. This is not a sewing contest. Let me repeat that:
This is not a Sewing Contest
We will be launching a sewing contest next week, so fret not!
So my takeaway from this is to stop with the confusing contest titles, but
"The Spinning, Weaving, Felting, Knitting, Crocheting, Tatting Contest" just wouldn't fit on the thumbnail!
