Submitting your work at the county fair and the new S n' Bitch book

Everyone loves to be recognized. Here's two ways to flaunt your knittyness:

Enter your work to the LA county fair. The Entries must be postmarked by July 12th.

And this is the email about submissions to the new SnB book.

Dearest stitchers 'n bitchers:

I'm gearing up to get cracking on my next Stitch 'n
Bitch book. It's going
to be an advanced knitting manual, and I'm looking
for patterns that
incorporate a bit of fancy-pants knitting such as
cables, lace, color work
(either intarsia or fair isle or, hell, both!),
beading, etc. The book will
be covering these techniques in great detail, as
well as much more.

Patterns can range from clothing to accessories to
household items to baby
things and pet items. Even first-time designers are
invited to contribute.
I'm looking for lively, fun projects, and I'm
especially interested in
sweaters and socks.

So put on your thinking caps, cause submissions are
due June 19, 2006!

To submit, please send the following:
1) If you have a completed project, please send a
few good-quality photos of
the item, along with a detailed description of it.


2) If you can 't get a large project done in time to
meet the deadline, don't worry. Just send me a very clear, detailed sketch
of your project idea
(include basic measurements, fit information, etc),
along with a photo of a
rather large swatch (at least 10" x 10") made in the
yarns and stitch
patterns you plan to use.

Photos of projects and swatches can be emailed to me
stitchnbitch@bust.com, or mailed to me here: Debbie
Stoller, BUST Magazine,
78 Fifth Ave, 5th floor, New York, NY 10011.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to include your full name,
email addresses,
daytime and evening phone numbers, and mailing
address, along with your
submissions. Include a SASE (self-addressed stamped
envelope) if you'd like
me to mail your submission back to you after I've
made my selections.

It will take me at least 2-3 weeks to make my
selections. If your project is
accepted, you will be provided with the yarn you
need to produce a sample,
which will be photographed for the book and kept by
me (to take on tour, 'natch!). You will also be paid for your submission,
your pattern will be
credited to you in the book and will run alongside a
brief bio, and of
course, you will receive a free copy of the book
once it is completed.

If you have any questions about the process, feel
free to email me. Thanks
in advance, everyone!

(I apologize to any of you receiving this call for
submissions more than
once; I'm just trying to get the word out to as many
of you as possible.)
