Get your sewing machines ready, today is the official start of the second WeAllSew Challenge!
Our first WeAllSew Challenge, the “Wedding Dress Makeover,” was a great success, and we can’t wait to see the entries for “Make Yourself at Home”, which starts today. Upcycle any item into reinvented home décor and enter for a chance to win a $1,000 BERNINA Gift Certificate plus a chance to be featured on WeAllSew.com. Plus – all challenge participants will be automatically entered in the WeAllSew Challenge Sweepstakes Grand Prize drawing for a chance to win a BERNINA 730 E sewing machine!
If you’re just now joining us and did not participate in our first challenge, here’s how it works:
Throughout the year BERNINA USA is hosting three unique challenges that focus on upcycling or reinventing pieces of clothing and fabric. For each challenge, one winner will be selected to receive a $1,000 BERNINA Gift Certificate.
The first WeAllSew Challenge is over, but you still have a chance to enter the remaining two challenges to be held this year. The theme of the second challenge is home décor, featuring items you’ve upcycled and reinvented into something new and special for your home. Visit our WeAllSew Challenge page on Facebook for instructions on how to enter and full contest rules.
How to enter:
Upload a photo of your finished project along with a brief description to our WeAllSew Challenge page on Facebook between Thursday, May 3 and Monday, May 21. “Make Yourself at Home” is the second of three challenges on our contest schedule. You can enter one challenge, two challenges, or all three (if you already entered the first one); it’s completely up to you.
Your challenge entry will be judged by a panel of BERNINA experts based on three criteria: The number of votes each project receives, the project description, and the photo of the finished project. The winner will be announced on the BERNINA Facebook page in early June, 2012.
Additionally, anyone can enter to win the grand prize drawing for a BERNINA 730 E sewing machine. Simply fill out an entry form at your participating BERNINA dealer to enter. Each challenge participant will be automatically entered into the drawing, which wil take place in September after all three challenges have ended.
Turn something old into something new and enjoy adding something beautiful to your home décor. Happy creating! We are looking forward to seeing all your great ideas in this second WeAllSew Challenge!
