Call for Book Entries: One-Yard Craft Projects

On Mondays WT tries to always post a call for papers regarding something in the academic world, but sometimes something else fun comes up that isn’t exactly research-y, but that I really want to let you know about.

My friends Rebecca and Trish have a call for entries for their second book Fabric Extravaganza: One-Yard Wonders. Their first book, One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric! was a big hit with crafters everywhere and this second volume promises to be even more robust as this time it covers all types of fabric.

They are looking to you to submit entries of your best ideas. Here is what they say:

“As with 101 One-Yard Wonders, we’re focusing on projects that take no more than one yard of fabric to complete. Ideally your project would use nearly the full yard of fabric (no quarter yard projects please, unless they are part of a group project which takes up a full yard).
By all means, please feel free to add trims, zippers, Velcro, buttons, interfacing — whatever additional stash stuff & notions might be necessary to complete the project. We only ask that your project uses one– and only one–yard of a single fabric.

We invite you to contribute your original designs for home decorating items, baby items, personal accessories, toys, garments (for men, women, and children), outdoors, pets, seasonal projects … whatever! The categories are open ended, and the possibilities are limitless! We can’t wait to see how you want to use your different fabrics!

The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2010. Projects will be considered as we receive them, so try to get them in sooner rather than later. The only stipulation is that your original designs may not have been previously published in a book or anthology. Email notifications will be sent May 1, 2010 with detailed next steps.”

You may know Rebecca from her fab work with baby bedding and her famed sock monkey dress and Trish you may know through her super store Crafty Planet.

I think you’ll love working with them so hopefully you’ll submit something snazzy to the book!
