WELCOME TO THE 2015 Umbrella Prints Trimmings Challenge. It's our sixth year running!
You will notice a few changes this year, we have been listening to your feedback and think we have a fair and awesome challenge.
This is a unique challenge where you have the opportunity to create & share something different and wonderful from the little pieces of our printed fabric we call Trimmings. We are looking for work by designers, artists, quilters, makers, tinkers, film makers, animators, children, professionals, thinkers and YOU.
We have two major prizes
this year, both will be chosen based on skill & creativity.
for the most innovative, beautiful, creative and well presented entry as judged by Umbrella Prints.
To celebrate the skills of the quilting community we have $300 worth of Umbrella Prints organic fabric or product
to give for the most outstanding quilt, chosen by an industry judge.
and we have ...
