KOC2: Doggie Idol Fashion Show

Mary Colucci, Executive Director of the Craft Yarn Council of America, emailed me and asked if bloggers could help spread the following information for the upcoming New York City "Knit Out & Crochet Too!" event.  Mary, I'm delighted to assist, and I'm looking forward to seeing all those wonderful pooch designs:

Doggie Idol Fashion Show

We’re prowling for the cutest knitted and crocheted canine outfits to feature at the September 17th New York City Knit-Out & Crochet 2006 in Union Square Park. The winning entry will be determined by the New York Knit-Out audience, and there will be prizes for the winning sweater and, of course, for the owner’s dog.

The number of entries must be limited so we need to hear from interested dog owners no later than September 5th. Here are the guidelines:

• The sweater must be an original pattern.

• E-mail* a digital photo of your dog wearing the sweater along with descriptive copy about the sweater, your contact information, both e-mail and daytime phone contact.
E-mail to: cmcommunic@aol.com
Snail mail to: Mary Colucci, 333 E. 69th St. #7J, New York, NY 10021

• The owner and his or her dog do not have to be present to win. If you would like to submit your dog sweater but you and your dog would
not be able to model it at Knit-Out, please send us exact sweater dimensions so that we can arrange for another dog to wear the sweater. If you are in the New York area and would like to have your dog model his or her sweater, please let us know. If you are considering this, we stress that your dog must be comfortable in crowds!

• All entrants will be contacted by September 7th about whether their dog sweater was selected for the Knit-Out Doggie Idol Fashion Show. Unfortunately, the number of entries must be limited.

Join us: It should be a howl!

Bloggers planning on attending the NYC KOC2, please help pass this News Release on behalf of the Craft Yarn Council of America: www.craftyarncouncil.com
Thanks, ~Dee
