Hey all, so this is the longest title ever, but this challenge is super great and for a great cause!
The Sewing & Stitchery Expo held February 25-28 in Puyallup, WA is the largest consumer sewing show in the country. Coats & Clark is sponsoring this year’s charity Pink & Red Fashion Show, with BurdaStyle hosting the virtual event!
The Coats & Clark Pink & Red Fashion Show is partnering with both the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society to fight the two biggest killers of women in America — heart disease and breast cancer. To honor these two amazing charities we are asking everyone to create an outfit in pink and red. So here’s where the challenge comes in. By submitting a project, you will be entered to win an invitation to model it at the show on Feb 28th, an assortment of Coats & Clark Thread and more!
The project must be predominately pink and red. Any shade of pink or red can be used and the colors do not have to be in the same proportion. For example, a garment may be red with pink trim or accents. Neutral colors such as black or white or a coordinating print can be part of the garment, but pink and red must be the main colors. You must use thread as a design element in the garment. For example—decorative stitching, embroidery, thread painting, topstitching—be creative! Garment can be from or based on a commercial pattern or an original design. Click for free BurdaStyle patterns.
You have until 11:59pm EST January 31st 2010 to either upload or email an image of the completed Pink & Red garment to BurdaStyle.
E-mail photograph(s) of your entry with your name, complete mailing address and e-mail address to BurdaStyle: submissions (at) burdastyle.com or upload it as a project to the BurdaStyle website.
