Jan Soules spoke to us in May about the ins and outs of Contest Entry. Of all the many things to be aware of, timing your piece’s entry into a contest and making sure you follow the rules lest you get disqualified, were emphasized. Timing was important with regards to shipping and, if you will enter another contest with the same piece, making sure it is back in your possession before it goes out again. She also showed us many of her contest entries, which she pointed out were small for the amount of fabric you get to enter the contest with. Jan’s use of color is practiced, with many colors coming together for a lush overall piece that does not clash. Thank you for sharing your work, Jan.
Afterwards we participated in a show and tell with some ladies that have been very busy this past month, some of them showing up to three new tops.
