What is the Design Wars Challenge? Design Wars is a crochet challenge formed in late 2012 by Salena Baca. This forum is presented as an opportunity for independent crochet artists who are serious about their career, ready to progress professionally in their field, and looking to form meaningful networking opportunities within the crochet arena! Design Wars has worked to collaborate with such forums as Red Heart Yarns, Crochet Today, and Inside Crochet to broaden our reach and create a strong community of crochet enthusiasts!
When do challenges take place? Roughly, each new design challenge is held quarterly. We are introducing Alumni Challenges too, which will be held in between our quarterly design challenges.
How (where) can I follow along? Daily news and updates can be found on our FACEBOOK page. Challenges, interviews, giveaways and CALs are best kept up with by subscribing to our blog.
Who are the Design Wars Challengers? With each new round challengers are chosen from our application pool. Once selected to participate members are invited to become part of our Design Wars Alumni! Since Design Wars began we have taken great pride in continuing to network together in pursuit of forming a progressive crochet community. Meet our past challengers!
I am beyond proud to have snagged interviews with two of my favourite crochet icons: Stacey Trock of FreshStitches, and Linda Permann of Linda Made! These ladies were too kind to share a bit about themselves, work, and their future plans; and I hope the signed books we gave away went to adoring new homes. Thank you Stacey & Linda, we look forward to following your success! 22
