The Amazing Judges!

We want to make sure you got a chance to know the Season 23 judges!  These fantastic ladies were crucial in determining the results each week.  We were so pleased to be honored with their talents, and we want you to be sure to check out their sites and follow them on social media. 



Our week 1 judge was the color queen Katie Kortman!  Katie is an artist with Bachelors (BFA) in Drawing and Painting from Brigham Young University and a Masters in Teaching Art.  She teaches art and sewing from her home, designs fun fabric, and recently released an ebook, Wear Happy Color!  The perfect judge for the Analogous Color theme, we're so honored to have Katie Kortman with us this Season.  Follow her on Instagram for the most colorful addition to your day.


For week 2, we tapped into the talents of Sherri of Mamidesofiona.  A jaw dropping sewists, her garments always are technically perfect, whether she's sewing for herself or her gorgeous daughters.  Since her own Season on Project Run & Play, she's started the very successful pattern company, Sofiona Designs.  Be sure to follow her on Instagram for tons of beautiful sewing.


Our celebrity sewing guest judge for week 3 was Mandy of Sugar Bee Crafts, also a former designer on Project Run & Play!  She has the cutest DIY tutorials, recipes, sewing and crafts galore on her site!  You can also pick up some really awesome national parks digital designs in her shop.   Be sure to follow her on Instagram for a bright and colorful addition to your feed, and her stories are always uplifting too!


And judging week 4 was the mega-celebrity Tabitha Sewer! (And yes, that is actually her real last name. Cool huh?) She describes her style as colorful, eye catching, and playful.  She likes to create things that stand out through color and texture.  One exciting addition to Tabitha's site is BUTTONS! Check out all the fun colors, shapes and sizes. Be sure to follow Tabitha on Instagram to add some happy to your day!


We also have our faithful panel of judges for all of 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!
