Though we are just about hitting fall, at Pom Pom we’ve already got spring on our minds.
For our Spring 2019 issue we’re feeling inspired by botanicals of all kinds – from the farmer’s market, to aromatic herbs and flowers used in tinctures and teas, to newly sprouted fronds in the forest. Fresh colours found in nature will feature heavily, and we can’t wait to see some of our industry’s gorgeous hand-dyed yarns shine in beautiful stitch patterns inspired by greenery.
We’re a little later than usual on our call for submissions, so please bear in mind this call involves a quick turnaround both for submissions and finished pieces. All submissions are due by September 27th, and all finished pieces are due in Early December. Publication is mid-February.
Spring is a transitional season, and we are always lacking in accessories, so designs for smaller pieces will be given priority. We’d also love to see your crochet ideas!
As always, we are so grateful that you continue to share your ideas with us.
