After two successful craft challenges, we are filled with confidence for our new challenge. So here we are announcing the next and the third IndyaKaleidoscope Craft Challenge – September 2012.
What is the Sep ’12 Challenge about?

Who will judge?
IndyaKaleidoscope will put togather a panel of judges(each month there will be different set of judges). An equal number of both types of people. Craft and design challenged people who do not understand the complexities of Art and Craft and avid crafters, lovers of all things handmade.
