Stampington & Company
Belle Armoire
Publishing Opportunity

In the November/December 2008 issue of Belle Armoire, maverick fabric artist Ruth Rae created a stunning altered T-shirt project by first creating a one-of-a-kind art quilt and then sewing it onto the tee. Belle Armoire invites you to make mini art quilts in like fashion and submit your results to be considered for publication in both Art Quilting Studio and Belle Armoire. Show us your interpretations of how your art quilt gets stitched onto a T-shirt or onto a handbag, or transformed into a pin, or other wearable item.

All artwork must arrive at our offices on or before the published deadlines. We prefer submissions of original art. If original art is not available, our next preference is hi-res digital images (300 dpi at 8½" x 10"). If hi-res digital images are not available, we will very rarely consider professional-quality transparencies or color slides. Color-copy submissions
are not accepted.

All artwork must be identified with the artist’s name, address, e-mail and phone number clearly printed on a label attached to each sample. As artwork often gets separated from instructions during our selection process, we ask that you also inscribe your name and address somewhere on each piece of art. If you desire acknowledgment of artwork receipt, please include a self-addressed stamped postcard.

For collaborative projects, it is the responsibility of the submitting artist to obtain permission from each participant prior to submission. In addition, each piece of the collaborative must be labeled with contact information of the artist who created it. Please be aware that the collaborative project in its entirety will only be returned to the submitting artist and must have sufficient return postage.

If the artwork is three-dimensional, please attach your identification with a removable string, or pack the sample in a plastic bag with your identification. Artwork without proper identification will not be considered for publication.
Depending on the publication, concise yet thorough instructions must accompany each art sample. Attach individual sample instructions to each piece of artwork and include credits for art stamp images used, as well as any other products of note. If you are able, please keep an electronic version of your instructions, as you may be requested to send those in if your work is selected for publication.
