Excitement is building as we introduce the guidelines for a pocket skirt contest.  Most of you know that this contest has evolved due to the skirt worn in Portland by Abby Ross. It was a fabulous garment and sent many of us to altering heaven!  We have decided to have a contest, a fashion show and a tea party!  Sound like fun??  Vegas will kick off our fashion show and Tea Party – the perfect location for altered skirts on a runway. Here are the details:

We are going to have a Pocket Skirt Fashion Show, Contest and Tea prior to Vendor Night on Saturday in Vegas. All the art girls in Wonderland need a new pocket skirt to wear on their multitude of adventures! Where else can they store their stamps, pencils, trades, and ideas? Won’t you help them out? Your creations will be entered in our fabulous Wonderland contest and will walk the runway to the oohs and aahs of the crowd. The requirements are few: skirt must have at least one pocket and must be able to be worn down the runway.
