THE WINNERS!


Thank you to everyone for the gorg eye candy in the form of custom made pretty potholders for the SEWING MACHINE DOUBLE DOWN CONTEST. Last Friday you met the eight fab judges, and boy did we have our work cut out for us. Over the weekend we whipped out our scorecards and poured over every entry, evaluating the four categories: Originality, Style, Presentation, and Workmanship. We narrowed it down to ten finalists, then two winning entries, the creators of which will each receive one of two amazing sewing machines that Brother has generously offered to provide: one Brother PC-420 PRW Limited Edition Project Runway Sewing Machine (just like Jacinda’s) and one Limited Edition Project Runway Innov-ํs 40 Sewing Machine (just like Jaime’s).

There are ten finalists, but there can only be two winners. So we have a surprise for you: Contest judge and Free Spirit textile designer Valori Wells is sending each of our eight finalists a yard of gorg fabric from her collection as pictured above!

Without further ado, check out the finalists (in no particular order):

Katie Middlebrook

Catherine Hodge

Sunni Bolger

Tamara at ModernRadar

Michelle Smith

Stacie Pighin

Kristie Fields

Katie Lewis

What a lovely group of potholders! I've never been so interested in potholders before now, but I love every single one of the finalist entries and the winners! ๐Ÿ™‚

WOW those are some gorgeous potholders. Congratulations winners! I am glad that I did not have to judge – dont know how I would have done it. Best contest ever. Especially 'cause every entry is a prize – I know I can always use some home made love to go with some home cooked meals. Thanks for a GREAT contest!

What a THRILL to see my penmanship potholder included! I love that fabulous fox potholder, too. I have a friend that would go crazy for the owl. Any chance we might see some of these as tutorials?

Congratulations to the winners, thank you ladies for hosting/judging, and congrats to everyone who took the time to challenge themselves creatively!

I'm kind of sad the first two didn't win especially since those one's look like they took forever! But all entries were beautiful.

Congratulations to all the winners. The potholders were beautiful and amazing! Any chance we may get to see a slide show of the other works that didn't make the final cut? I need more inspiration ;o)

I loved them all! I especially loved "I will eat my vegetables!" What a really cool way for the winners to win a great sewing machine! I was so excited to see the announcement that I refused to look on my phone and had to head home to check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great contest!

Thank you so much for putting on a great contest! It's so much more fun and interesting to compete for such an amazing prize rather than have someone win randomly.

I particularly like the presentation of the ruffle potholder. A chalkboard background with a homemade quote…how cute! It looks like something out of a Pottery Barn catalog.

Really great potholders. Congratulations winners. I do not know how I would have. The best contest ever. Especially because each entry is a prize. I know you can always use some home made love to go to some home cooking. Thanks for a great contest.
