What is Celebrate Color?

Enjoy weekly doses of inspiration in projects, fiber round ups, pin boards and tutorials brought to you by Stitched in Color, our partners and special guest posters!  Browse the photo pools to immerse yourself in the colors of fall as seen through the eyes of fellow fiber artists. 

Submit your fall colored projects for a chance to win monthly prizes.  1st and 2nd place "Color me happy" winners will be chosen by popular vote each month from each category.  The 4 photo pool and contest categories are:

Fabric {Home Decor}: quilts, pillows, runners, etc.
Fabric {Wearables}:  clothing, bags, accessories.
Yarn:  anything knit or crocheted
Needlepoint:  with elements of embroidery, crewel, cross stitch, etc.

You may submit up to 2 projects each month into any given category.  And, of course, you may be active in several categories!  Projects must be newly created/finished during our event.  More entry details to come!

And what's a good party without prizes?  This contest is divided by category exactly so that you can win prizes fitting to your favorite fiber art.  We're making our lists and contacting folks now, so let us know if there's something you think would make the perfect prize.  Of course, I already have some great ones lined up!  Prizes for each category will be announced at the beginning of each month.

Celebrate Color officially launches on September 1st when some of the partners and I will be sharing what "fall colors" means for each of us.  Remember, this is an interpretive event, so we want to know and see what inspires you as "fall".  Would you join us in posting on September 1st an inspiration board, fiber round up or just your musings on fall colors?  Rachel's post on "stitched in color" will include a linky so that you can add your post and we can enjoy a community full of inspiration.

rachel, emma, mollie & i will be posting again soon with buttons for you all to sport, contest details and more information about celebrate color.   i'm super excited about the whole thing and i hope you guys all join in!  it sounds fun right! i cannot wait to see what you guys come up with and what colors you are inspired by for fall.  i've even got a few tutorials in the works that will be part of celebrate color as well!  i can't wait to show you all.

so get creative, get crafting, start thinking cozy fall and let's all celebrate color together!  are you excited about fall?  are you going to join in?  happy thursday!
