IPCA Ticket to Paradise Contest

At last year's Sew Expo -- the IPCA (Independent Pattern Company Alliance) launched their sewing challenge -- "Midnight Magic".  I am happy to report that it was a HUGE SUCCESS -- and they are going to DO IT AGAIN...

The 2013 Sewing challenge is called "Ticket to Paradise" -- here's the official announcement...

Here's just the Ticket To Paradise . . . a terrific fashion sewing contest recently announced by the Independent Pattern Company Alliance - IPCA. Winners will be announced March 3, 2013 at the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, WA. Great prizes include a fabulous Baby Lock Symphony sewing machine. The Grand Prize winner will be invited to the International Textile Expo in Las Vegas also in March. Sounds exciting doesn't it!

Here's how to enter:

  1. Visit to discover all the pattern companies included in the contest.
  2. Choose a pattern from the IPCA members' pattern collection, then free your imagination using the theme "Ticket to Paradise".
  3. Stitch up your garment or outfit using your personal vision of Ticket to Paradise.
  4. Submit an entry form with at least 2 photos of your completed entry to the appropriate IPCA member company.
  5. Entries are due by January 25, 2013.
Who's the IPCA? Just as the name suggests, these independent designers formed a coalition to promote their creative pattern designs. When you buy a pattern from an IPCA member, you are assured that it has been professionally drafted, professionally graded for multiple sizing and include comprehensive illustrated pattern guides.

The Ticket to Paradise in a great chance to showcase your design and technique skills.
