A New Contest...

Derby Hat or Fascinator Contest!

Why a Derby Hat or Fascinator? 
Well, why not?  For generations women in the South have been wearing fabulous hats and fascinators to derbies, tea parties, luncheons, and anywhere else that they want to show off or outshine their neighbors.  If they can do it, so can we!

Your designs can be big and bold, whimsical and witty, sedate and seductive (or any other combination of adjectives) - but they must all be fun to create and to wear.

When Is My Hat or Fascinator Due ?
Saturday, May 10, 2014, at 3 pm.
Winner to be announced between 3:30 and 4 pm
In order to be considered for judging, and thus eligible to win one of the prizes, your design must be at Stony Creek Bead no later than 3pm on Saturday, May 10.
We hope that you will come a bit early and show off your creation.  However, if you cannot be here at that time, we will accept them earlier.

1. Some of the beads or materials  must be purchased at Stony Creek Bead. (It's our contest, after all.)
2. This should be a new creation, not previously entered into any other contest. (Because you should have a new hat or fascinator as often as possible.)
3. To be considered for the Grand Prize, your creation must be wearable.  (While wall art or statuary pieces are admirable, this contest is all about beautiful head gear!)

Did Someone Say Prizes?
Yep, that's right!  We have decided that everyone who enters will get a prize, and
the Grand Winner will receive a $75 gift card to Stony Creek Bead and a $50 gift card to LushLapel.
So, put on your creativity caps and get designing!

The beads should be from us, and, for everything else, visit:
