Great idea! But first I have to check if I can by such zippers in NL... Then everything depends on the time...

Thanks for the video and the heads up on this new product.

The contest is too soon for me to work into my schedule, but I have zipper usage ideas already.....

I saw the new C&C zippers the last time I was at Hancock's, and they looked quite nice. I'm heading back to the store tomorrow, and I'd like to know whether C&C's new water resistant zipperwith the satin tape counts as one of the zippers we can use for the contest.

Also will the winner be selected randomly, or will the winning item be determined by skill and creativity?

Actually any project with exposed zipper application would work. The winner will be selected by random drawing.

Thanks, Deepika. Do the zippers need to be Coats & Clark zippers, or can they be any brand?

Can it be something I recently sewed with an exposed zipper, or does it need to be sewn between now and the deadline?
