And it’s (going to be) that time again–scarf time. Announcing our third Annual Call for Scarves (ACFS).
The past two years, we’ve asked you to submit ideas for the perfect scarf. Each time what you sent in was wonderful. The first year we published fourteen designs, and last year we had so many good ideas that we squeezed seventeen into the 2013 collection. So many we had to turn away that we’d love to have included. So bring them on again and make us weep. Tell us about your perfect scarf.
Is it a cowl? A simple skinny rectangle long enough to go around the neck three times? Is is a triangle to wrap the neck and shoulders in? Show us your idea, be it original and wacky, classic and comforting, sophisticated, cute, textured, colored, cowled, wrapped, shawled, short- or long-ended. What we want is the scarf you want to live in. And one that’s relatively easy to knit (we think scarves should be comfort knitting).
So, please–send us your design(s). We’d love to have your submission by September 26. If we accept your idea, we’ll get yarn to you pronto and hope to see your finished piece by November 8. You’ll get to keep your scarf when all is photographed and done, and we’ll pay you, too, for your design.
Please submit your ideas via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Scan your swatch and sketch (rough drawing is fine) and put SCARF in the subject line. No need to use a Quince yarn in your swatch, we’ll get the idea and, if we accept it, we’ll send you a Quince equivalent. Questions? Email us at email@example.com.
Okay–come on! Let’s see those scarves!
