Connecting Through Crafts Contest and Virtual Exhibit

Show Off Your Craftiness and You Could Win 10 Books!

Crafters, here is your chance to display your creative handiwork and win your choice of any 10 Storey books from our full catalog — over 500 to choose from!

Here’s the contest challenge: Create a project, activity, or other piece of work around the theme of Connection. You can take this literally by connecting pieces and shapes, or make the theme the meaning behind your art — for example, connecting to your community or the planet — or anything else that inspires you!

The Prize
  • Your choice of 10 Storey Books — any 10 books from our full catalog, over 500 to choose from! (approximately a $200 value).
  • Your crafty work displayed on Storey’s Connecting Through Crafts Pinterest board (you will probably gain a whole bunch of new crafty followers!).
  • Free shipping of books to your home.

Connecting old and new; last years plants become next years lovely edibles, old traditions become revived into new adventures in seed saving, and old seeds create new friends in the spirit of giving.
