The Fiber Arts Contest is your chance to show off your amazing creations made out of a fibrous material. Knitting, crochet, embroidery, cross stitch, felting, and weaving, among many other things, will give you the chance to win an Amazon Gift Card.

If you are a First Time Author, there is also a special judges' prize just for you.

Prize Update: Due to the spread of COVID-19, all physical contest prizes (including prize packs) will be replaced with equivalent-value digital gift cards. Prize values are noted in the official rules. For more information, please see COVID-19 Adjustments to Instructables Contest Prizes.

The Fiber Arts Contest is closed.

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Feb 10, 2020 and Apr 6, 2020 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Fiber Arts Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.
