The Contest Committee has been compiling all of your votes and suggestions, and fine tuned them into what we think is a great contest lineup for 2013. We have kept old favorites, lengthened some, and added a couple of new contests to stretch your imagination!



Some quick notes...
There are twenty contests this year. That is one more than last year.
The Challenge Contest categories will not be posted until 2 weeks before the contest starts.
You will notice that the Pattern Stash, Fabric Stash and Holiday Sewing contests are longer than one month.

We have changed the rules slightly for 2013. Starting in January, this is the new eligibility rule to enter a contest..

1. Any member of Pattern Review, either paying (FoPR) or non-paying, who's been a registered member on the site prior to the start of a contest is eligible to enter.
(we have taken away the 90 day eligibility rule.

We are currently looking for Managers for the 2013 contests. Here is the link to that discussion. 2013 Manager Call

I'm happy to see that several of the contests I voted for made the final list! I'm especially excited about the RTW Designer Knockoff and Vintage Pattern contests.

Looks good -- thanks! I'm curious to know what the "2013 Patone colours" contest will be about.

I like the sound of fitted blouse & pantone colours.
And I enjoyed natural fabrics last time. UFO is a maybe.
Intreiged by RTW designer knockoff. Is there a tutorial on how one can clone a garment without taking it apart?

Wow -- so many great contests this year! I'm especially excited about: Handbag, RTW Designer, Pantone Colors, Natural Fabrics, Mini Wardrobe and Lined Jacket. And that's not even counting the Challenges. Looks like my sewing machine and I will be very busy in 2013.

Pantone colors is such a cool idea for a contest! Excellent lineup--I hope to participate in many of these.

One woman. One sewing machine. One giant stack of fabric. What could possibly go wrong?

I think the dates for the Pattern Stash contest need to be adjusted -- I'm making the assumption (hoping) that the duration of 1.5 months is correct. The dates currently reflect 1 month.

Pantone colors is a great idea. Except the last few years, the Pantone colors are ones that me look like a fresh corpse that died from eating bad seafood.
