Batter Up Crafters! We want to celebrate all things needlearts and baseball this spring and summer — what better way to do this than with a contest? CRAFT magazine’s Stitch N’ Pitch Contest teams up CRAFT with TNNA’s Stitch N’ Pitch baseball games this summer, scheduled around the country at 23 major league baseball games starting in May. Your work must be of an original design in the needlearts areas of knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, needlepoint, or embroidery and must center on the theme of baseball. You can interpret any aspect of baseball you’d like. Be creative here! Each needleart is a specific category you can enter, along with our extra category of Baseball Team Theme Design, where we encourage you to show your love for your favorite participating baseball team in the Stitch N’ Pitch lineup! Winners will receive a large “goody bag” filled with CRAFT prizes and needlearts goods from the top crafting brands. They will also have their winning item on display at future Stitch N’ Pitch games and have their project how-to’s posted up here on craftzine.com.
We encourage crafters of all levels to join in on the fun! Each needlearts category will have winners in the Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels. The contest entries are open from April 4 though May 31, 2007.
In the next few days, I’ll be posting up inspirational links on the CRAFT blog to help you get started. For now, check out the inspirational links I posted up last year on the MAKE blog. – Link.
