The Year Long Challenge. The “Year Long Challenge” is introduced at the September or October guild meeting. A theme is presented along with challenge 'rules' and guidelines. Expect many members to take part in the challenge and produce very different interpretations. The biggest part of this challenge is the fact that you are basically your own designer, though patterns may be used. You do the interpretation and create, turning your thoughts and creative spirit into a fabric vision. This is a voluntary program to participate in. We hope you all have fun with it. The year long challenge coordinator(s) info is on the contacts page.
