Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

On the first Sunday of the month, at 6pm UK time, we will set a new challenge which will close on the 28th of that month at midday. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted on the first Sunday in the month (midday usually) before the new challenge - don't forget to come and check if you are a winner.

Role of honour.

We have had some wonderful teamies in the past few years and we don't want to forget them, so here they are, DT members, 2 month guest designers, and one off guest designers.

If we have missed anyone please forgive us, and contact us to remind us and we will add you!

Past Design Team members.

Tracy was with us for just two months, January and February 2016, and had to leave due to other commitments.

Sadly Lynne had to leave us after only one month due to a health problem with her hand, she hopes to join us again when she recovers. She was with us for January 2016.





Myriam from Costa Rica was another 2 month Guest Designer who did two sets of 2 months before joining the Design Team. She left the team in September 2015 to have more time to do other projects. She is very talented.

Cindy Connell from Canada was a 2 month guest, who did 2 sets of 2 months (4 months as a guest) before joining us on the Design Team because we loved her work and attitude. She was with us until September 2014.

Gemma was our second "arty" teamie, and had to sadly step down  in early 2014 with health problems, we hope she gets well and joins us once more some day.
Daire was our first "arty" person and joined us in January 2013 and was with us for about 6 months, but had to leave us due to pressures of work and studies.

We don't have copies of badges for the following teamies:

Caro was a founder member, and with the team for many years before pressures of work forced her to step down. We wish her all the best for the future, she is one very clever lady.

Diane was a Quirky winner, who later agreed to join the team. She was on the DT from around March 2011 to December 2012 and we missed her lots when she left.

Fe Fe (Fiona) who is now with a new partner and has a new toddler to keep her busy.

Anne (blog is no longer active) was Deanne's "right hand woman" but left us soon after sadly becoming a widow.

Deanne of Quirky Boots fame founded this challenge blog. Originally she started a forum and we held challenges there, but blogs became more fashionable and the forum was not well supported so Quirky Crafts Challenge blog was born. Deanne bowed out because she was starting many craft ventures.

 Gemma later became part of the Design Team proper but had to step down for health reasons, and we hope she will join us again one day.

Helen Bowden joined us in Oct 2013, but only managed a couple of projects for one challenge before stepping down due to family pressures, therefore the end date is void on this badge.
