As I am working on my own garment -- I was inspired by this t-shirt -- the color pink -- the shape of a heart -- and the flavor of chocolate!!
We are THRILLED with the response of YOU -- our audience -- to this Pink & Red challenge. One talented group of women (six women made eight outfits) -- actually used the challenge as a way to SEW their family history...and the story of the brave women in their family who have SURVIVED cancer and heart disease -- is very inspiring indeed.
I would like to go over -- one more time -- how you can go to BurdaStyle and VOTE for your favorites. Remember -- only the top ten vote-getters will be invited to WALK IN THE SHOW on Sunday morning...
First of all -- go to Burdastyle.com -- then, at the bottom of the page -- in the area that says "from the blogs" --you must then click on "view all articles" -- AND, altho it keeps moving, you just keep scrolling down until you see the headline: "Vote for your favorite project in the Coats & Clark Pink and Red Fashion show at the Sewing Stitchery Expo". When you click on those words, you will be taken away to TWO albums. They had so many entries, they had to put up Part 1 and Part 2.
I do have some concern that many of you never went to see Part 2 -- so I am posting a direct link to Part 2 of the BurdaStyle SHOW
Many women worked really hard on their outfits...and I do have my favorites! The sewing-historians are in Part 2, and Laura Mendoza (our Yahoo Groups Sew Expo helper) is also in Part 2....Hey -- I'M NOT TRYING TO INFLUENCE THE VOTING -- CUZ THAT WOULD BE WRONG. I'm just saying -- be sure you've SEEN EVERYTHING.
Remember -- you can vote for as many outfits as you like -- but you can only vote ONE TIME for each outfit.
The voting CLOSES ON FEBRUARY 16....SO GO NOW TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITES AND DO NOT FORGET TO LOOK AT "PART TWO OF THE BURDASTYLE SHOW ...
