Nevada County Inspiration
Here are the rules from the booklet. Division 1108 Use some aspect of Nevada County as an inspiration for a finished piece. This should be either woven from handspun or commercial yarn or hand knit using handspun yarn. You could use a photo, calendar page, color of leaves or flowers in your back yard or neighborhood, some historical reference, etc. Please accompany your entry with a photo or written description of the inspiration for your piece.
The contest is open to everyone, even if you aren't a resident of Nevada County, CA. I have taken lots of photos in Nevada County over the past few years. Here is my flickr site and anyone wanting to use one of my photos for inspiration may do so as long as they give me credit for the photo.
We are hoping that lots weavers and spinning knitters will participate and there will certainly be a blog post with photos of the entries after they have been judged and the fair opens on August 8th.
