You’re looking at a picnic quilt created by of Dorywithserifs–just one of many entries into the Singer “Sewing with Nature” contest! You can view more entries (or hopefully add your own) in the Sewing with Nature Flickr pool. SINGER® Sewing Company and CRAFT Magazine invite all of the crafty stitchers out there to create a project inspired by nature. As we look forward to the spring, with the new growth and beauty that it brings, we ask you to create something that is sewn using a sewing machine and integrates organic elements for our Sewing with Nature Contest. For a four-week period, crafters can submit pictures online of their nature-inspired projects to the Flickr group called ‘The Sewing with Nature Contest’. At the end of the four weeks, SINGER will pick one Grand Prize winner and three runners-up. The Grand Prize winner’s project will be featured in the SINGER® ad in the Spring issue of CRAFT Magazine. The Grand Prize winner will also receive one (1) SINGER® Confidence 7467™ sewing machine with a retail value of $350 and a set of SINGER sewing books courtesy of Creative Publishing ($60 value). Three (3) runners-up will receive a SINGER® dress form ($129) and a subscription to CRAFT Magazine! Head on over to the ‘Sewing with Nature Contest’ Flickr group.
