Congratulations, ladies!  Winners should contact me at racheleuphoria {at} yahoo {dot} com with your address for prize delivery, including notes regarding any prize choices.

I am tentatively making plans to Celebrate Color again in the new year with a spring event and fall event, each only one month in length.  I'll be sure to announce any plans in advance so that you can get a-making beforehand, if desired.  If you have any suggestions for how we could improve, please add those here or feel free to contact me privately through the "contact" button!  I really enjoy constructive criticism, so don't worry about telling me the good and the bad!

As a reminder, every single one of these prizes is being freely given to the fiber arts community by individuals who have chosen to support our event.  If you have a moment, consider visiting these companies during the holiday season to thank them for their support of Celebrate Color!
