I am SOOO JEALOUS I cannot compete because the prizes are delicious:

The Fabricista Fashion Challenge


10 Seamstresses will compete in 8 sewing challenges
to become the next Fabricista.

Grand Prize Winner will receive: $25 a month for one year to spend on fabric, plus be a Fabric Mart Fabricista for 6 months writing guest posts for the blog. (A $300 value with media exposure)

Second place will receive: $100 gift certificate to spend at Fabric Mart, plus a Julie's Picks Membership to receive exclusive deals on select fabrics each month.

Third place will receive: $50 gift certificate to spend at Fabric Mart, plus a Julie's Picks Membership.

PLUS! Additional prizes for the winner of each challenge.

The Winner will be selected by fan vote.
Each challenge will be posted on the blog and our readers will get a chance to vote for their favorite outfit.
The Fabricistas will act as your own personal Tim Gunn and be there merely to serve as mentors throughout the challenges.
After the votes are in one person will be the winner of the challenge and one person will be "sent home."

Only 10 people will be in the running.
Enter to be one of our designers by submitting your blog or photos of you wearing your work to
You must be 18 years or older and live within the United States.
Enter by September 8th, 2013.

The chosen designers will be announced on the blog on September 9th, 2013.

We are looking for creative, adventurous, fashion-forward individuals who are comfortable with working in time constraints, writing about their projects, and being photographed in their garments.
For most challenges you will only have one week to complete your project.
Due to the limited amount of time for each project, we do not expect you to order all of your fabric online as it might not get to you in time. But this is a great way to use up some of your stash!
Even if you are not selected, you can still join us for the fun!

Are you as excited as we are?!
