The Refashioners 2016: Enter to WIN!!!!

The Refashioners 2016 - huge prize package

 

Ok, with one day to go until the official launch of The Refashioners 2016 I am skidding and screeching up to the line with this post! I MEANT to post this over a week ago, but tech and family issues have had me hostage for the past week or so and put me very behind with the “digital workload” of The Refashioners. No matter! We are here! And this my friends, is the biggest prize package yet! *Total prizes (all sewing goodies!!!) combined are worth over £1300 and this year is split into two separate prizes. A 1st prize worth over £1000 and, because last years standard was so high, a seperate “special recognition award” worth over £300. This Challenge is open internationally and I’ll share all the ways you can enter at the end of this post. In the meantime, here’s a breakdown of what you could win if you want to take part!!!

    a quick question Portia, can it been jeans made in fabric other than denim? Mr Y has two pairs of ribbed cotton drill that were heading out the door in a charity bag when I spotted The Refashioners. Dyeing is, of course, a distinct possibility. Thanks, Sue
