Oh yeah! I have this silk tweed that I got from Joann's about five years ago. I've been itching to use it!

How is that still a thing?

Oh how exciting -- please count me in! I'd love to sew a wool jacket, and I have several beautiful 100% pure wool fabrics to choose from. I can't wait to get started.

Do you happen to know anything about the prizes or the judges yet?

No sewing project is ever a complete success nor a total failure.

This sounds like a great opportunity to use up some of my prized fabrics! I'm definitely interested.

When can work begin on these garments? Are we limited to entering only one fiber category, or can we do something in the silk category and the wool category (or more if someone is really ambitious)?

Prizes and Judges I haven't started contacting sponsors yet. That'll happen sometime in May or June. Same with the judges.

How many projects can you enter As many as you want as long as they follow the rules.

Do we get our garments back? I just finished a dress (that would fit one of your smaller models! lol), but I need it--that's why I made it. :P

The best project you could be working on is the one that's on the table right now.

Can we use "mystery" fabrics if we do a burn test and it's consistent with specific single fiber and all other indications point to that specific fiber? I'm thinking of items from Michael's Fabrics Zegna bundles.

This sounds like a fun contest. I have a couple of things already in mind. What will be the official start date of the contest?
