Tomorrow we get to start with our "Meet The Designers" series so we can get to know each of the designers a little better. We are so thrilled that they are here with us for Season 2. I can only imagine what is going in each of their sewing spaces, but wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall? Maybe I am just nosy ;) but I would love to see how everyone gets their inspiration and how they make it into a lovely look.
Ok, back to the subject.
Here's how Project Sewn will go.....
Monday, September 30th will be our begin date! We will open the linky party for all of you who are sewing along (the first week is the "Little Black Dress" challenge) and the linky party will remain open until Thursday, October 3rd at 8 pm (MDT).
Tuesday, October 1st through Thursday, October 3---The Designer Voting will begin! Bright and early that Tuesday morning we will release the Designers' Looks and open the poll so that you can vote for your favorite designer's look. This reader's poll will account for half the designer's general score. The other 50 % percent will come from how the designer's rank each other (we kind of love that twist because who better than to judge than someone
Friday, October 4th we will announce the Designer Winner and then the Sew Along Voting will open. Each of you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite sew-along look. This poll will close Sunday night and we will announce the sew-along winner on Monday morning.
Some frequently asked questions:
What if I have sewn something in the recent past that fits into one of the themes? Can I submit it? YESSSS!!!! Anything that you have sewn in the last 6 months may be submitted for any of the Sew-Along themes.
Can I submit more than one look? We would ask that you choose your favorite and only submit one look per person/per blog.
What if I don't have a blog? Can I still enter the Sew-Along Contest? YES!!! You can submit a picture from flickr if you don't have a blog. You just submit the link as you would a blog link when the linky party is open. (Or you can set up a blog if you prefer---it's free to do so!)
Are there prizes? YES....but you are going to have to wait to hear about those. That's a whole post for another day....
What are the themes? Go HERE to read about each of the 4 themes....
I hope we have covered the basics, but if I haven't...please ask away in the comments. We would love for each of you to participate!!!!
