Stranded & Tangled in Madagascar
We are currently having fun with the submissions for our charity exhibit benefiting the Humane Society of Canada. We have called it Tangled & Stranded in Madagascar. Our entire exhibit will be on display exclusively at Creativ Festival on October 22 – 24, 2014.
Submissions have come in from across the globe where participants have an opportunity to win $3,000 in prizes.
I am currently releasing sneak peeks on Facebook. The entire gallery will on display one week before the show right here.
Please note that creativity doesn’t always come in pretty little patterns. Which means that many of the entries are free form ideas where the crochet participant has pushed their own limits. While some of the submissions are actual patterns, some of the really intricate patterns are most likely not free patterns where the crocheter has purchased a pattern or book in order to make it. Some of the crocheters have used a base pattern but then embellished well beyond the pattern.
It is my hope that you please respect that many of the entries may not have a pattern and/or the pattern is not free for the crocheters to give out. We need to respect the copyright laws associated to the patterns as well.
The crocheters have not shared with me where they got their patterns and/or if they have made it up themselves. That wasn’t part of the challenge requirements. The challenge was to submit something relevant to the Madagascar Theme for the exhibit.
While I am receiving many emails asking me to give out the patterns that the challengers are using. We did have a list of patterns with the challenge which are still available. Some of the entries are directly from that list. See Challenge and List of Patterns.
I ask that you respect each challenger with not pressuring them to release their patterns or get you the links to where they found the patterns. If they release them, great… if they choose not to or the pattern cannot be shared, let’s take a moment to appreciate their creativity instead of choosing to give them a hard time.
