Judging Format:

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

1/3 score = public voting
1/3 score = panel of past Project Run & Play judges
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.

Celebrity Judges:

Bari J. is an artist with a signature style coined Curated Maximalism.  She believes color is king and more is more!  You can spend hours roaming her blog, The  Curated Maximalist, filling your eyes with delicious goodness.

Liesl Gibson designs for the very well loved children's pattern company Oliver+S, as well as women's patterns at Liesl & Co., and Lisette for Butterick.  Her mission has been to help people realize their creative potential and build lasting memories, one sewing project at a time.  Oliver+S has been a long time supporter of Project Run & Play, and our designers are always delighted to add Oliver+S patterns to their libraries.  

Dana comes (back!) to us from Made Everyday.  A very popular pattern designer for the whole family, Dana also makes very cheerful YouTube sewing tutorial videos.  It's so delightful to have her happy influence return to Project Run & Play.  

Mimi G. is a superstar in the sewing community, and of course everyone remembers her appearance on Project Runway Junior!  She blogs DIYs, fashion, and style at Mimi G. Style.  Mimi G is a Simplicity and PDF pattern designer, YouTube Instructor, and highly sought speaker and educator.  

Panel of Judges:

Delia comes to us from Delia Creates where she blogs sewing and more in the most beautiful DIY photos you can imagine.  She was a designer on Season 5, and really showed everyone how it ought to be done!

Heidi comes to us from Elegance & Elephants where she designs patterns and sews for her son and daughter.  She was a designer on Season 5, and earned the respect of the sewing community with her sewing expertise.
