The Prizes for Season 13 Are...

We are so delighted to have some really fabulous prizes for our Season 13 designers and those of you who sew along!

Project Run & Play is a rewarding endeavor for all who sew, both designers and sew along participants.  It's so rewarding to be sewing as a group on the same theme and to share and see what others have made.  Often the results of what you create are worth it in and of themselves!  But we like to make Project Run & Play even more rewarding by coming up with fantastic prizes for the designers and rewarding those who sew along too.  This part would NOT be possible without our sponsors.  

So, what we are trying to say is a HUGE thank you to all of the companies that are sponsoring the next season of PR&P.  We REALLY appreciate you.....{and I am sure the winners will too!}  

So, if you have fabric, crafting, notions or etsy needs....please click on the sponsors below to visit and support them.  It would mean a lot.

And the Season 13 Themes are...

Take a look at the Season 13 themes!

Week 1 (March 6): --"It's all about".
Show us where you would like to travel to, with this destination-inspired outfit for your child.

Week 2 (March 13): --"Greenery" Bright and Powerful
 Pantone released it's color of the year, and it is a fabulous green. 
"Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another, and a larger purpose" Leatrice Eiseman, Executive director of the Pantone Color institute.
Let's see what you can do with that!

Week 3 (March 20):-- "Boho chic"
Get out the fringe and scarves, this challenge is all about the very hip bohemian style.

Week4 (March27):-- "Signature style"
    Design a look that best represents your own unique style, taste, and best showcases your skill set.

We are super excited about these themes and cannot wait to see what you (and our contestants) come up with. This Season should be a lot of fun!
On your marks, get set...go!
