Dreaming of Manchester


Purl City Yarns wants to see your designs!

Purl City Yarns is holding a design contest and we want to see your original hand knitted and crochet designs inspired by Manchester. Your inspiration could be a song lyric by a Manchester band, a painting by a Manchester artist, a Manchester landmark, or anything to do with Manchester that gets your creative juices flowing.

Designs will be judged in five categories: garments, accessories, shawls, socks, and miscellaneous.  The winner of each category will win a £50 Purl City Yarns gift voucher and the patterns will be published in a special Purl City Yarns pattern book and displayed in the Purl Gallery.

We are having a launch party for the competition in the Purl Gallery at the shop on Wed, 15th December, 6pm-8pm. Come along, grab yourself a drink and learn more!

Contestants have until 31st January 2010 to make submissions to Purl City Yarns.  When submitting a design, you must include a completed knitted or crocheted sample that has been knitted/crocheted in a yarn stocked at Purl City Yarns and a description of how the design is inspired by Manchester.  You do not have to submit the written pattern; we will only ask for a written pattern if you have a winning design and will arrange to have your pattern test knitted before it is published.  Finally, all designs must be original and cannot be published elsewhere.
You can bring submissions into the shop or post them to us at:
62 Port Street
M1 2EQ

If you have any questions and to receive a copy of our full competition rules, please contact us at 0161 425 3864 begin_of_the_skype_highlightiend_of_th

We look forward to seeing all your designs!
