The IPCA (Independent Pattern Companies Alliance) is sponsoring a terrific fashion sewing contest and the finalists will be revealed at 1:30 on the Expo Runway Sunday, March 3.
The 2013 Sewing Challenge is “Ticket to Paradise”.
To enter: Visit www.patterncompanies.com to discover all the pattern companies participating in the contest. Choose a pattern from the IPCA members’ pattern collection, then free your imagination using the theme “Ticket to Paradise”. Create your garment or outfit using your personal vision of Ticket to Paradise. Submit an entry form with at least two photos of your completed entry to the appropriate IPCA member company. Entries are due by January 25, 2013.
The Grand Prize winner will win a trip to the International Textile Expo in Las Vegas (also in March).
THE EXPO AUDIENCE can win valuable prizes as well. Part of the fun of the IPCA Ticket to Paradise event is that our attendees get to "vote" for the winner! Pick up a passport at the show desk (in the Pavilion) or at any participating IPCA member booth. Have your passport stamped at each participating IPCA booth to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE drawing.
Another exciting change is that this year -- for the first time -- the WINNER will be announced at 1:30 Sunday -- on the Expo Runway!
Who is the IPCA? Just as the name suggests, these independent designers formed a coalition to promote their pattern designs. When you buy a pattern from an IPCA member, you are assured that it has been professionaly drafted, professionally graded for multiple sizing and include comprehensive illustrated pattern guides. The Ticket to Paradise is a great chance to showcase your design and technique skills. So -- get those creative juices flowing....GO THERE RIGHT NOW -- www.patterncompanies.com.
