This book was a labor of love and dedication.  If you enjoy creating garments I think you will truly like the step by step instructions I designed!

“wayward threads” garment contest

 

Because the world seems to have come to an awkward halt as far as socializing and entertainment because of Covid-19 I am hosting a contest for those who want to create a garment using an idea or technique from my book. If you haven't purchased it but want to join in you can find the book at Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0851LL3FT/ref=sr_1_2…

We can all stay home and create! 

Starting March 14th 2020 a contest for people to create an upcycled garment using a technique or an idea from my book “wayward threads”. 

Take a photo of the shirts/materials you gather to upcycle, in the next couple of weeks work on your project and take photos of the final garment you create. Post the photos on this Facebook page along with your full name.  http://www.facebook.com/wayward-threads-108871690739778/?modal=admin_todo_tour


The deadline to finish garments and post photos is April 1 (don’t be fooled, lol!). 

I have a team who will help me choose the top ten contestants. On April 4th I will post those top ten photos and names on my website here for the public to vote on and choose the top winners.  Voting will end April 6th and winners announced on April 7th.

I have a prize for everyone who enters! It is a downloadable tutorial on special treatments for upcycled garments, pocket, neckline and sleeve(less) ideas.

I will have prizes for the top 3 contestants but will keep them as a surprise, believe me they are items you will want, I want them!

Happy designing and sewing! Can't wait to see what is created!
