Okay. It’s taken me 2 days to soak in that I’ve been selected as a designer for season 6 of Project Run & Play. I just wanted to say “Thank you” to each of you who took time out of your schedules to cast a vote in my direction. The REAL competition starts on January 7th and runs through February 12, 2013.
Here’s a little bit of information about Project Run & Play:
- It’s a children’s clothing design competition similar to Project Runway, except it’s online, on a smaller scale, and a lot friendlier :).
- The competition is divided into weekly themes. Contestants create a “look” based on the theme and submit it to the site for judging.
- Design scores are a combination of judges critiques and public votes.
- The designer with the highest score, wins a prize for that week. The designer with the lowest score is “sent home”.
The awesomeness of this kind of competition that it stretches your sewing and design skills, not just for the contestants, but also for the sew-a-along home group. Anyone who wants to participate from home can design along with the designers and submit their creation to the Flickr group to win prizes, too. I did the sew-a-long in season 4 and loved it!
I just met the designers the other evening. They are all wonderfully gifted and equally talented in their own right. This should be lots of fun for everyone. I hope you all will follow the competition and cast your vote at vote time. I’ll be more than happy to remind you when the time comes :).
Thank you, again, for all of your support!
Keep doin’ what you love!
