THREADS Magazine Lace Challenge Winner

Many of my designs are created long before I can share pictures with everyone and one of my most successful designs is one of them. Last year I submitted my intent to participate in the ASDP Professional Design Challenge sponsored by Threads magazine. When I knew that the challenge included lace and developing a new technique I just knew what my entry would entail. So spring of 2012 I started creating my design. I submitted photos of my entry last summer and was selected as a finalist. The garments were then judged in person during the American Sewing Expo in September 2012 . Winners were announced at the  Association of Sewing and Design Professionals Annual Fashion Show. I was so ecstatic to have won Audience Choice. To me that that is a big honor and achievement when all of your peers select you as the winner, and impressing other professionals can be a challenging thing. Rarely do I brag  but I really fell in love with my design and technique. Part of the challenge was to develop a new technique and I truly designed a brand new technique combining fabrics that you just have not seen anywhere or in historical clothing. Thanks to THREADS magazine for sponsoring and now that the designs have been published in the magazine I can now share my own design. In the mean time I have developed classes featuring my new technique so sign up for one of my upcoming classes and learn how you can create your own Flocked Lace design.

My Fur Flocked Design will join my Baby Lock traveling Trunk Show June 2013
