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.

Meet the celebrity judges for Season 25:

For week 1, we have the talented team of Tami Meyer and Tessa Heiser from Love Notions.They have combined their love of sewing to create a positive community around the Love Notions brand, encouraging people of all levels to sew beautiful garments. Find them on Insta here: Love Notions & Tessa Does .

Amy is the powerhouse behind Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop and Knit Fabric dot com and will be judging week 3. Amy first starting blogging in 2010 grew her shop from there.
