CONDITION OF ENTRY

FROM WOOLPACK TO CATWALK

The theme for this year’s show is “A TRUE COUNTRY SHOW”.  It’s time to get CREATIVE! The woolpack fabric can be treated in many different ways to achieve various effects – consider painting, stencilling, dyeing, embellishing, plaiting or shredding the fabric.  Limited only by your IMAGINATION.  You should aim to create something with that true “WOW” factor.

Judging will be based on the IMAGINATIONS of the CREATOR, so your challenge is to ‘knock their socks off’ with something wonderfully unique.  You do not need to be a fabulous sewer or artist – creativity is the key…. Adornments such as buttons, beads, lace, sequins, braiding etc. are allowable additions.  Garment can be sewed, glued or velcroed.  You can choose to model your own creation or have someone else model it for you.
