The Designin’ December 2020 Winners!

You guys just blew me away!  I could hardly keep up with all that loveliness!  Another new record, 26 talented sewists joined in, 26 Designer Copies – and I thank you!

I bet our audience was very happy that they could vote for TEN out of the 26 this year.  The votes were sooo close.  Of course I had to go with the top 15 and match them up with the randomly picked prizes … I took a photo of my bowl of prizes that I was randomly picking and posted it on my Instagram … seriously!

Thank you for wonderful participation of the sewists, the sponsors, the readers and the voters!

“Why buy when you can make it yourself – better and for less money?”

So how does this work?  Everyone had the chance to vote for their favourites on my blog and on my IG. The likes on my IG for each garment were easy to see and count, but I left it up to Crowdsignal to do the poll and count the votes on my blog.

There are 15 prizes, so one prize per talented sewists.

In no special order, here are the 15 Designer Copies which received the most votes, matched up with 15 randomly picked prizes!

    I’ve been enthusiastically kept in stitches, while sewing in my ETSY Shop these last two months.
    All the while, I’ve been following & living vicariously through you all!

    Everyone who participated is absolutely awesome!

    My hats off to each & everyone of you. I admire all the designs for their own unique design characteristics.

    It’s so wonderful being in touch with other like-minded creatives, even if by digital means.

    Linda you are to be commended for putting together such an exciting sewing event!
