Season 22 Judges

This Season we're honored to have 3 VERY TALENTED people from the UK sewing community with us!  

The judging format is as follows:

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

This scenario casts light on the quality of the designer's work rather than their popularity.  This format has ensured a positive experience for everyone in the past few Seasons, and the prizes awarded fairly on merit, rather than size of following.

Best known for winning BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee in April 2019 Juliet Uzor is also passionate about inspiring as many people as possible to take charge and create their own fashion pieces.  She feels lucky to have the platform to inspire people and show them how to tackle sewing projects. Juliet inspires and educates through her Sew So Natural blog posts, videos on youtube and mini tips and tricks on instagram.

Vicki Herron works daily behind the scenes at Minerva Crafts.  Can you imagine getting to dabble in fabric, patterns, yarn, notions and more every day??!!  In her day-to-day jobs at Minerva she is constantly surrounded by products, people and ideas that inspire her.  We are so excited to have Vicki looking at the designers creations!  You can find Minerva on Instagram, as wells as tons of information and inspiration on the Minerva blog.

A household name around the world, Lisa Comfort is a sewing powerhouse!  She runs the very widely trusted Sew Over It, a pattern, fabric and sewing institute.  Her mission is to teach the world to sew, and she's well on her way to that goal!  As if that wasn't enough, Lisa also runs Lisa Comfort Home, for all your home decor and accessories needs plus tons of styling inspiration.  Of course, we're partial to her line of children's sewing patterns; Poppy and Jazz.

We also have our faithful panel of judges for this final Season of 2019:

Hayley comes to us from Welcome to the Mouse House.  She was a designer on Season 5 and Mini Season 1.  The Janie Dress and the Sydney Pinafore are her genius patterns, and can be found in the Project Run & Play shop!  It's a true honor to have Hayley make time in her busy life (follow along on Instagram!) for Project Run & Play.

Kelly comes to us from Handmade Boy.  She was a designer on Season 17 and is pretty much the uncontested boy sewing expert!  You can find her on Instagram here.  One thing Kelly makes perfectly clear is that boy sewing can be FUN.  It's so exciting to have her on the panel of judges for 2019.

Celina comes to us from Petit A Petit + Family.  She was a designer on Season 9 and proved that it pays to stay true to your own style every time!  The Tip Top Dress &  TunicAzur Reversible SwimsuitLoverall Dungarees, Upbeet Tee and Dress, and Turnip Up Trousers patterns are all her designs and can be found in the Project Run & Play shop.  You can follow Celina's mega artistic account on Instagram.  It's incredible to have her make time in her busy life 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!
