New Scarf – New Skills Competition

September 11, 2016

A quick reminder of this years competition: New Scarf – New Skills!

The Rules:


  1. You must make a new scarf.
  2. You must learn something new in the process.
  3. Scarves can be of any textile construction.

The new skill could be anything you’ve not done before, from a new fibre or a new drafting technique if you’re using handspun. Use of a new yarn or weave structure if woven. A new knitting/crochet stitch or technique. If felting: a new type of felting or embellishment style. If sewing then things like using a new fabric, new stitches or new  way of hemming would all count.

And finally:

4. There is no minimum size of scarf.

Scarves could be suitable for anyone from adult to barbie doll. Hopefully this will allow everyone to take part regardless of the amount of time or materials they have available to them.

Judging will be on February 16th 2017.

Our next meeting is on Thursday 15th September and will be preparation for our Natural Dye Workshop the following Saturday. Hope to see you there!
