2020 Panel of Judges

Panel of Judges


We're very proud to announce our panel of judges for 2020.  These talented ladies will be helping keep the look and feel of Project Run & Play consistent and on track with their thoughtful judging scores each Season in 2020.



Cassie comes to us from Lily Shine Creates.  She was a designer on Season 10, and now designs patterns for Violette Field Threads.  Who can forget her amazing Shine Brite creation for the 80s Cartoons Theme?  These days, she's sewing quite a bit for herself as well as her childern, and it's sew inspiring!  It's a true honor to have Cassie make time in her busy life (follow along on Instagram!) for Project Run & Play.


Katy comes to us from Wild + Wanderful.  She was a designer on Season 12 and is the boy sewing expert on this panel!  You can find her on Instagram here.  Katy also runs Thread & Grain, with so many products for sewists!  It's so exciting to have her on the panel of judges for 2019.



Carin comes to us from Art Bella Creates.  She was a designer on Season 18 and shared her breathtaking aesthetic every single week!  A truly talented sewist, Carin is always a 1st pick when we are creating our stunning lookbooks!  Be sure to follow Carin on Instagram.  It's incredible to have her on this panel for Project Run & Play.


It's such an honor to have these talented ladies giving their time and effort on the behalf of Project Run & Play.  Please thank them by following them on social media, and reading and commenting on their blogs!

Judging Format:

Designers on Project Run & Play have been judged in different ways through the years.  The current judging format is as follows:

1/3 score = public voting
1/3 score = panel of past Project Run & Play designers
1/3 score = celebrity guest judge of the week

The hope is for this new scenario to cast light on the quality of the designer's work rather than their popularity.  This will hopefully ensure a positive experience for everyone, and the prizes awarded fairly on merit, rather than following size.
