Inspired by Threads Contest

Don’t Miss Your Chance to Enter the Inspired by Threads Contest

Show us how you’ve been inspired by Threads! To celebrate our 25th anniversary, this contest is open to garments that have been inspired by any article in Threads magazine’s history. This can be any article including projects, techniques, or tips published by Threads throughout the past 25 years.

To enter, upload photos of your garment with a brief description of the techniques, fabric, and pattern you used along with the article or articles that inspired the garment. Entries must be uploaded by 11:59pm November 5th, 2010. There is no limit to the number of garments you can enter.

Threads editors will judge the garments based on the overall garment design, construction techniques, and the application of the inspiration article used. Inpiration articles can include anything from an entire project to a finishing or fitting technique you found inspiring.

2010 Archive DVD  $149.95

    I have missed the Inspired by Threads contests! I always loved seeing what people were inspired by. Perhaps this will be my year to STOP procrastinating!!!

    I won't be able to construct a pair of pants by 11/5/10, but I am drafting a pair of pants following the directions in your Threads Magazine "Best Pair of Pants Ever". I'm in a sewing class and with the help of my instructor, I have almost finished drafting the front pattern.

    I don't have a project to share right now, but I AM inspired and have been inspired since discovering Threads magazine a year ago. I started sewing again after a long hiatus and have developed a desire to learn more than just the basic sewing skills. Think I'll look for a local class to take to add to the great inspiration and techniques Threads has revealed to me.
