Deadline Extended: Farm to Fabric Challenge + Giveaway!!


This just in….We’ve got some breaking news to pass along to you about the Farm to Fabric Challenge, a juried quilt exhibition set to premier at this year’s International Quilt Market & Festival in Houston, Texas on October 25th through November 2nd, 2014.  We’ve extended the deadline from Friday August 15th, to the new deadline of Sunday August 31st.  That gives you virtually a whole month to dream up and produce something amazing using American Made Brand Solids to enter into the contest!!  Come on you creative folks, you!  There’s still time for you to show us what you’ve got!!

When designing your entry for the Farm to Fabric Challenge, think of the theme:  “Celebrating Farm to Fabric”.  Consider what it means to you, your family, or your community to bring fabric production back to the USA! ‘From Farm to Fabric’, Clothworks is thrilled to be offering a American Made Brand Solids– fabric that is grown, processed, woven, dyed, and manufactured all here in the United States of America!

Click on this link to read more about the details for registration into the Farm to Fabric Challenge.  And be sure to read the 4-1-1 on how to photograph your quilt submissions at this link.  There are some great resources here.

A stellar jury comprised of 3 incredible women who all reign in the quilting & sewing communities, including Pokey Bolton, Alissa Haight Carlton, and Heather Jones, will judge the entries submitted to the Farm to Fabric Challenge.  Should your entry be selected into the exhibit, you will be notified no later than Friday September 5, 2014.  Selected quilts must arrive in Houston, TX no later than Wednesday October 1, 2014 to be displayed in the International Quilt Market and Festival.

Best of luck in your creative pursuits!!!  We can’t wait to see what you create with American Made Brand fabrics!

And since the August 31st deadline for entry submissions is steadily approaching, we thought we’d host a quick giveaway to celebrate the deadline extension for the  Farm to Fabric Challenge!

Up for grabs is one All American Made canvas tote bag with the beautiful American Made Brand Solids logo gracing both the front and back of the bag!!

Wouldn’t this make the perfect bag to take along to your favorite local quilt/fabric shop to fill up on some American Made Brand Solids??? 🙂

  1. Asking me to pick my favorite color of fabric is like asking me who my favorite child is. I love them all, but as I am working on a yellow/lime wallhanging now, I would have to say the lime.

  2. Thanks for making something in the USA! All of the colors are beautiful but I especially like the blues, aquas, purple, and greens.

  3. I love them all! But especially the neutrals- like whites,creams,butter and taupes, I can incorporate them into most any project. You make canvas fabric too? Cheers!

    • Hello Chic Mona,
      Thank you for your wonderful comment. I just wanted to clarify one thing- currently, Clothworks does not manufacture canvas fabric. We work with a company, our next-door neighbor in fact, that produced that canvas tote bag, right here in the USA.

  4. Love the feel of your solids!! So glad they are made in the USA. We have farmed all our life and do everything we can to buy made in the USA.

  5. Glad you extended the deadline – that got me going on my entry which I’m working on right now. My favorite colors are brights and grays.

  6. I am so excited that you extended the deadline! I actually really like the white, it is so crisp, I have all 50 colors, and now I am super excited that I will still have time to do my project.

  7. I love american made brand solids!! My favorite colors are the light turquoise and the light grey. The colors are so vivid and they wash beautifully. Happy to be supporting products made and grown on our own soil!! Keep up the geat work!!!

  8. Oh, I missed the deadline – but I’ll tell you my favorite color fabric: blues … light ocean blues, teal blues, deep mountain blues, night sky blues, daytime skyblue … all the different shades and hues of beautiful blues!
