Trickling into Spring

Hello Readers:

The past few weeks have been tremendously busy here at FACFE HQ. We are still in transition so from time to time we experience a hiccup or two. Our posting schedule had been delayed due to internal system issues. As of this writing, we are up and running. Let's hope all works as it should from this point forward so we can continue to bring you new opportunities in a timely fashion.

That being said...we have lots of new (and cool) "things" tacked to the peg board. We plan to share them with you in coming weeks.

As always, thanks for your readership.

All the best,

Elise N.

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show

Deadline: June 1, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show
Sisters, OR
July 10, 2010

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show™ is a non-juried show. We are always pleased to show new quilts and we welcome your entries.

Our show is open to anyone who has a quilt they are proud of and would like to display! The magic of our show is that quilters of all abilities can participate and share their work. We can display approximately 1,300 quilts and we accept about one-third of our entries for sale. Because of the limited number of ‘for sale’ entries each year, those entries fill up very fast. We have filled our sale entries as early as mid-March in some years.

An original registration form is required for each quilt you’d like to enter. This form serves as the show tag while the quilt is on display and it must be original and completed entirely. We accept registration forms until June 1 or when the show is full. After June 1 we are unable to accommodate changes to your registrations except to eliminate a quilt that is already registered. No substitutions are accepted after June 1.

A quilt is registered when your completed registration packet has been received and we have confirmed your accepted entries.
Requesting registration materials does not hold a place for your quilt(s). You will receive an email or postcard confirmation of your entries.

Entry Criteria & Requirements
Each exhibitor may enter a maximum of 10 quilts in the show. Up to five of those quilts may be for sale.

Definition of a Quilt for our Show:
A quilt is two layers of fabric with a filling that is stitched together with lines or a pattern. Quilting may be done by hand or machine. Tied quilts do not meet the definition of a quilt for this show.

“Raggy” quilts and quilts made from predominantly pre-printed panels are not accepted. We do not accept raffle quilts from other groups. Quilts do not need to have a sleeve for our show.

Quilts must be at least 36” x 36” and may not exceed 104” in width or length (note: some of the Special Exhibits have different size criteria). We cannot accept stuffed animals, tablecloths, pillow shams or other non-quilt items. Shapes other than squares and rectangles are discouraged and may not be displayed due to difficulty in hanging in our show.

Entry Fee:
A $5.00 entry fee is requested per person (not per quilt). Entry fee should be returned with your completed registration packet, not with the Order Form in this brochure.

An original registration form is required for each quilt. This form serves as the show tag and must be completed entirely.
Requesting a registration packet does not hold you a space in the show. The “Quilt Story” section of the registration form is for interesting information about your quilt. We will return forms that are not complete and we do not hold space for quilts with incomplete registration information. Registration deadline is June 1. Packets received after June 1 or after we have filled the show will not be accepted. You will receive an email or postcard confirmation of accepted entries. Confirmations are processed May 1 and again after the June 1 closing date.

Sale Quilts:
Each exhibitor is limited to five sale entries. We only accept one quilt of a given pattern for sale from each quilter. Photos of sale entries are required with completed registration packets. Photos can be of the finished top prior to quilting but please do not send photos of the quilt pattern in lieu of a photo of your quilt.

SOQS handles all sales and retains a 25% commission.

Deadline: May 25, 2010 (RECEIVE)


Exploring the Future and New Possibilities in the Face of Climate Change

Looking to inspire new choices through positive, design-centered thinking, IDEO - a global design and innovation firm - launched the Living Climate Change initiative last fall. Its goal is to extend the dialogue beyond policy and politics andtoward inspiring, human-centered scenarios that create new possibilities for business and society. Now IDEO is partnering with DESIGN 21 - a popular online platform to promote design for the greater good - to create the Living Climate Change Video Challenge. People of all ages are asked to craft videos that envision a sustainable future as society moves along the path toward reduced carbon emissions.

The Living Climate Change Video Challenge calls for an original video that envisions how climate change will impact life on Earth over the next 20 to 30 years. IDEO and Design 21 are looking for new thinking and thoughtful ideas on a sustainable future and are particularly concerned with which behaviors need to change or be preserved.

Interested participants must submit a video or still image/text animation of no more than two minutes, accompanied by a 400-word description. The challenge is open to individuals and teams of all ages but will be divided into two age categories: "18 and over" and "Under 18" with the permission of a parent or legal guardian. Deadline: May 25, 2010.

Entries will be reviewed by a distinguished panel of jurors including: Sir Ken Robinson, creativity and education expert; Allan Chochinov,editor in chief,; Matt Hunter, chief design offer, Design Council; Gary Hustwit, independent filmmaker; Dr. Milton Chen, senior fellow and executive director emeritus, George Lucas Educational Foundation; Xeni Jardin, editor, Boing Boing; David Kelley, founder and chairman of IDEO and the Stanford ""; Wendy E Brawer, DESIGN 21
advisory board member and founding director of Green Map System; and other experts on design and climate change from IDEO and UNESCO.

One overall winner in each age category will be awarded a grand prize of $3,000 plus a "Deep Dive" half-day workshop with IDEO. The jury will also select an honorable mention in each category to receive $500. As with all DESIGN 21 competitions, entries will be included in an online public voting poll where DESIGN 21 members will choose a "Most Popular" winner in each category.

Approximately thirty works will be chosen for display in the Center for Book Art’s auxiliary gallery space. Artist members of the Center for Book Arts are encouraged to submit works to be selected by the show’s curator, and the selections will be augmented by works by non-member artists to enhance the scope of the exhibition.

We encourage artists to submit more than one work to be reviewed. Artists are invited to submit as many works via CD-ROMS (no original artwork) for review as they wish, up to 12 images in total. All images must be properly labeled and accompanied by an image list with name, title, year created, dimensions, medium/materials, and credited properly (authors, collector, etc.)

Application for membership may be made with submission of exhibition materials. All artists are welcome to apply for artist membership. One does not have to be a book artist to apply for artist membership rather one must have created work related to the medium of book arts.

Around The Block
7th Annual Fiber Arts Stroll

Sister, Oregon
July 3 – July 11, 2010

The seventh annual Around the Block Fiber Arts Stroll is THE kick-off event for a week of festivities for the 35th Anniversary celebration of Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. Around the Block, the premier art stroll in Sisters, Oregon is a fiber-arts stroll featuring artists, demonstrations and special exhibits of textile related arts and quilting. Artists are hosted by sponsoring businesses in downtown Sisters. The goal of the event is to increase the awareness of and to showcase fiber arts to the public while honoring the work of fiber artists from a broad range of mediums. The event will provide artists with a quality environment to present their work to the public. Around the Block would not be possible without the involvement and support of the Presenting Sponsor, High Desert Gallery, as well as strong support of businesses throughout Sisters.

We are seeking artists who specialize in any fiber-related art and who are interested in showing their work. Artists are expected to be present at the sponsors’ business to chat with visitors during the art stroll. You are welcome to sell your work and we encourage demonstrations & participation. If you have a project the public can make for themselves (you may charge a small fee if necessary), so much the better!

Artists will be selected on the basis of originality of their work, adherence to a “fiber arts” theme and availability to be in attendance at the art stroll. We will match the artist with the business and put you in contact with the business owner or manager to arrange details about space, set up, displaying and selling your work. Our deadline for entries is April 15th. We will notify all entrants of our selections by May 1st.
