Deadlines and Details for Return to Sender:

Posted By DLaVallee on April 3, 2012

A spinning challenge! “Return to Sender” is an event where spinners create unique and wonderful yarn with fiber especially hand dyed just for the 2012 Conference. The finished yarn is returned to CNCH to be judged (optional) and displayed at the conference. This year we have chosen Blue Faced Leicester and Tussah silk (85/15) dyed with natural dyes in Conference colors by Mary Finley and Roger Salter of Dreamy Goat Design Studio.

The fiber has all been distributed and now it is time for the finished products to return!

The postmark deadline for Return to Sender skeins is 4/30/12.  The judging will take place a week before the Conference so all entries need to be mailed to the jurying team.

Entry forms and mailing instructions for Return to Sender are available here.

If you participated in Return to Sender 2010, you can show off your handspun yarn in its finished form at CNCH 2012:

The entry form deadline for Return of Return to Sender is 4/15/12 but the items can either be
1) sent to Wendy Lacy directly, postmarked by 4/15 or
2) delivered to the Conference Friday morning by 9 am.

Download the entry form for Return of Return to Sender here.

We want to give people as much time as they need for Return of Return to Sender so we only require the entry form to be filled out early.  We will know how
to set up the display when we receive the entry forms and know the general size of the items.  The judging for Return of Return to Sender will be Friday at the conference.
