We’ve got some BIG news! Are you ready? We just heard about this awesome opportunity to have your work published internationally and win $3,000 in prizes. It’s called the “Vintage-Inspired Modern Style Design Challenge” and it’s hosted by BurdaStyle.
To celebrate the milestone anniversaries of two of the biggest companies in sewing, SINGER and Coats & Clark, and the life of Mary Brooks Picken, the fashion and dressmaking trailblazer of the mid 1900s, BurdaStyle presents this fun challenge. Participants are asked to choose one of the patterns found in Amy Barickman’s book, Vintage Notions or a purchased or free e-pattern found on the Indygo Junction website. Take your chosen pattern and make it your own! Put your own spin on the project to create a stylish and wearable fashion garment. Pieces will be judged on originality, craftsmanship and overall appeal. Creativity is strongly encouraged!
The deadline to enter is March 12, 2012. For official rules, prize details and how to enter, visit the BurdaStyle website.
For all of the challenge information, watch the video below. Amy Barickman will let you in on all the important details!
One more thing! As a little added bonus, we’ve got a special promo code you can use to take 20% off a one-time order at IndygoJunction.com. Enter the code VMCB and click “update cart” before purchasing to receive your discount!
