Fashion Challenge 2: Contestants Have Been Selected!!

Our 8 contestants have been selected! Wow we had a great response from some talented sewers, I just wish I could have chosen them all! We will begin the Fabricista Fashion Challenge on Friday, September 5th. On that day, all contestants will have the first challenge in their inboxes and it will also be posted on the blog! 

I know some of you out there love a challenge, but maybe you thought the Fashion Challenge wouldn't fit into your busy life or maybe you felt you weren't "good enough". I'm giving all of our viewers a chance to participate with the contestants! Although you will not be in the main competition, you can post photos of your projects on our Flickr page.

So let's find out who has been chosen for the Fabricista Fashion Challenge 2! (In alphabetical order.)
















I'm really excited to see what these ladies can do! I have some fun challenges planned for everyone. Get those sewing machines ready and your creative ideas flowing! See you on September 5th!
