The deadline for our pattern and design competition is extended to 15 July 2007. We’ve received several worried mails that were concerned about international shipping procedures and the time that takes. Many of you were afraid that because of overseas shipping they would miss the deadline. So, we quickly decided to extend it! Keep in mind to finish your pattern or design before June 15th, that gives you a whole month of shipping time, that should be sufficient!

    Good Question, Mirela! Sometimes because of weight/thickness, it does not make sense to use muslin fabric, so you can use any fabric you would like to use for the muslin. We look forward to seeing it!

    Great news!

    And I have another question about the pattern competition. I looked at the muslins here at the local stores, but they are so thin\sheer and do not have the same drape as the fabric I intend to suggest.

    So my question is: Does the muslin need to be made out of real muslin fabric, or can it be sewn in any kind of cheap fabric I already have?
