Calling all Sewcialists!

Who are the The Sewcialists?
Sewcialists are those who enjoy sewing & interacting with others creatives about sewing on social media. To kickstart our community #sewcialists, a group of 10 bloggers, myself included, are launching an international design competition for our logo.

I need you to vote for your favourite designs from April 24 until May 8.

What are we looking for? We are looking for a design that:
Relates to sewing and the social nature of sewcialists
Is modern, simple, recognisable and memorable
Is useable in black & white as well as in colour

What will the winner win?

A 1 year subscription to Make magazine
A $100 cash prize. The cash prize of one hundred US currency will be paid through PayPal only ( or equivalent converted to the currency of the winner)
A custom ipad sleeve

We are proud to have MAKE as our official competition sponsor! They’re the ones giving the winner the subscription.

Deadline for submissions is April 20thSubmit to jury [at] sewcialists [dot] org

April 24 until May 8: The jury members will open up general voting on the designs that made it to the final round.
  • Voting will happen via comments on the jury blog posts
