We had so much fun in last year's competition that ran alongside the Olympics that we knew we needed to host our games again this year to run alongside the Cross fit games.
This years competition is going to run much like last years and with some new shiny modifications to keep things fresh and help everything run a bit more smoothly!
First-off you may be wondering what is the Skein Games? Well, its a competitive Make-a-long that offers different categories for makers of all abilities to challenge themselves and potentially win some fun prizes along the way.
You'll need to register for this year's games by completing THIS google form. Each competitor is sent a commemorative sticker for this year after registration and from there you can either join us from afar or in shop for our kick off on Saturday, August 6th. The competition will run through Saturday, August 20th at 9am central time and we'll be announcing winners on the morning approxiamtely at 10:30amCST of Saturday, August 20th in store and on an instagram live as well for any folks joining in from out of town.
As you complete projects in the events below you'll use THIS google form to submit your projects and select the category or categories it falls under. We are operating on an honor system here and trust that you're being honest with your submissions.
