How to Win:

  • Please don’t submit photos of the following (they will not be considered)-
      • Other yarn (those dyers have worked hard, I have no desire to copycat)
      • Pop culture- TV shows, Games, Music labels, Cartoons (these are genres Sweet Mountain Crafts is not interested in at this time)
      • Marketing or branding for other businesses (no matter how big or small)
      • Inappropriate or suggestive images

Have fun!  If you have ever wanted a chance to have a yarn worked up like that one image you saw, this is your opportunity.  Feel free to share this event and add to the excitement by helping spread the word!
