- Entries must be your own crochet work.
- Any Crocheted item is acceptable. Bring Any Project, that you are proud of.
- This can be a New project OR one completed in the past.
- If you aren't sure which category that suits your project, the judges will determine the best category.
- If you can, please identify which publication the pattern came from, or who the designer was.
We will have cards for you to fill out to identify your piece.
During Saturday's lunch break, you will be given a Voting Card. Walk through the entries and choose your favorite from each category. You will vote for only 1 project in each category.
There are prizes for the top three winners of each category, plus a Best of Show prize for the one project that receives the most votes.
The First Place Winners of each category will receive: a quilted project bag, two project books appropriate for the category, and other goodies. Each of these prizes is valued at $50 retail.
The Second and Third place winners in each category will receive a Project Bag with goodies and fun things.
The Best of Show winner.... will receive a large project bag filled with lots of Crochet goodies, that I’m still adding to, so it will be a really nice prize.

To insure everyone gets a chance at a prize, the judges reserve the right to move projects into other categories.
In case of ties, the judges will decide the winner.
