Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has revealed the winners of its 2012 National Craft Month Photo Contest. Crafters were encouraged to submit photos through Jo-Ann's Facebook page
of their favorite handcrafted items throughout the month of March. Over 1,000 entries were submitted.
The winner of the popular vote, cast by Jo-Ann Facebook fans, is Kim Butler of Newburyport, Mass. who submitted a river rock hand-painted to look like a bunny. She won a $250 Jo-Ann gift card.
The second grand prize winner, chosen by a panel of judges from Jo-Ann, is Allison Hoffman of Austin, Texas. Hoffman, who also earned a $250 Jo-Ann gift card, created an amigurumi Bob Ross doll. Amigurumi is a Japanese method of knitting or sewing stuffed animals. Hoffman's work can be found at craftyiscool.com
