Lark Books Craft Challenge: Scarves

Deadline: October 15, 2009 (RECEIVE)

Craft Challenge: Scarves

Lark Books
Senior Editor: Nathalie Mornu
Publishing Opportunity

We’re looking for fresh, original designs sewn from upcycled vintage scarves to publish (along with how-to instructions) in an upcoming book geared toward the beginner/ intermediate stitcher. The tone of this 132-page paperback will be clean and sophisticated, with an urban edge. We want to include a range of sleek wearables and home dec items that are distinctive and eye-catching. Unlike in the first two books in this series (Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase and Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Tea Towel), urbane, chic, sassy designs are more likely to be accepted than sweet or cute ones. There is no entry fee, and early entries are encouraged.

Interested in working with us? We invite you to submit project proposals! Here’s how:

By October 15, 2009 submit to Lark one proposal form per proposed project—there’s no limit to how many proposals you can send—along with a digital photo of your already-stitched design, or a scan of a sketch with a photo of the scarf/scarves you’ll use. Pretty simple, huh?
