Go ahead, take the Threads 2021 Digital Ambassadors’ Runway Sewn Your Way Challenge. Sew your own runway-inspired look, then submit a short explanation and images of your results for two chances to win prize packages.

A contest with two chances to win

An audience-choice winner receives more than $500 worth of products from Beautiful Textiles, Janome, and Wild Ginger Software, and a winner selected by the four Threads digital ambassadors receives a selection of Taunton products.

Entrants can submit photos and descriptions of their self-sewn, runway-inspired garment or ensemble between 12 a.m. eastern standard time September 3, 2021, and midnight EST November 3, 2021, using the entry form provided here.

Audience choice

We’ll compile and post the runway-inspired entries. Then you can choose your favorite. You don’t need to enter a garment in the contest to vote. Cast your vote between 12 a.m. EST November 8, 2021 and midnight EST November 26, 2021. We’ll tally the votes and announce the audience-choice winner December 3, 2021.

Digital ambassadors’ choice

Be sure to check out posts from the four Threads digital ambassadors, who will offer lots of encouragement to find and sew your runway look. These sewing experts aren’t competing for the prizes. Instead, they are creating their own runway interpretations to show off techniques, which are bound to give you a few ideas. They’ve taken their first steps already!

Plus, they’ll serve as judges. They’ll pick their favorite runway-inspired entry, and the entrant receives a prize package of Taunton products. The winner will also be announced December 3, 2021 at ThreadsMagazine.com.

How to get started

Choose a runway look that inspires you and make it your own in a new garment or ensemble. It can be a vintage or contemporary runway inspiration and interpretation. Your garment or ensemble does not need to have been sewn within a particular time frame.

Enter for a chance to win by providing a photo and/or link to your runway inspiration and clear images of your finished look. You’ll also briefly answer a few easy questions in the form we’ll provide. That’s the time to share which runway look or looks inspired you; how you made the look your own; what pattern, if any, you used; what type and how much fabric you needed; whether any trims or embellishments were used; and the challenges you faced in creating the look.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER Starts 9/3/21 Ends 11/3/21 US residents, 18+ only

Editor’s note: For pointers on entering this and other contests, see the Sewing With Threads podcast featuring artist Daryl Lancaster, an expert on entering and winning contests and shows. Check out this post for advice on taking photos.

    How do I enter? There's no form to fill out and no link to a form.

      Thank you for your interest user-332785. Entrants can submit photos and descriptions of their self-sewn, runway-inspired garment or ensemble between 12 a.m. eastern standard time September 3, 2021, and midnight EST November 3, 2021, using the entry form available Sept. 3. This will give you time to take or choose your photos. There will be a series of questions on the entry form you will need to answer, but they are all easy. We look forward to seeing your entry! - Jeannine Clegg, managing editor/production

    Does the garment need to have been sewn within a particular time frame?

    1. jclegg | | #4

      Thank you for your interest in the contest. Your garment or ensemble does not need to have been sewn within a particular time frame. However, you will need to identify the runway look that inspired you, provide images of your creation, briefly answer the entry form questions, and submit your entry no later than November 3. We can't wait to see your creation! - Jeannine Clegg, managing editor, production
