Apr '13
BERNINA of America, the world's premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce its Fabric Design Contest on Pinterest through April 22.

Grand prize is a BERNINA 710 machine, a 10-yard custom run of the winning design, an introduction to quilting fabrics manufacturer Benartex to review it, and a feature on the WeAllSew blog. Runner-up prizes will also be awarded, including two Pinterest People's Choice Winners.

Entries must be original fabric design "swatches," 12-by-12 inches in area, uploaded and "pinned" to Pinterest with the description, "BERNINA & WeAllSew Fabric Design Contest." They also must be linked to WeAllSew through a post in the comments section. The WeAllSew post is the only way BERNINA will receive contest entries.

Up to 10 entries per person are allowed, but anyone who has had fabric designs published, or is considered an amateur or professional designer, is ineligible. Hand or computer techniques, or a combination, are welcome.

Winners will be picked based on originality, creativity, visual appeal and versatility by BERNINA's celebrity judges: Amanda Murphy, Tula Pink, Mimi Goodwin, Vanessa Christenson and Angie Steveson.

First Runner Up will receive a 5-yard custom run of the winning design, an introduction to Benartex to review it, a feature on WeAllSew and a fabric giveaway. The 2nd Runner Up will win a copy of A Field Guild to Fabric Design by Kimberly Kight, a BERNINA Tote and fabrics from Benartex. Additionally, all winners will receive three patterns from Lunch Box Quilts.

People's Choice Winners will be selected by the number of "repins" made on the official WeAllSew board on Pinterest. Participants are encouraged to seek their family and friends' help in this part of the contest. The prize is a copy of A Field Guild to Fabric Design.

The BERNINA 710 is among the new 7 Series line of sewing, quilting and embroidery machines that also features the BERNINA 780 E (Embroidery) and BERNINA 750 QE (Quilter's Edition).

Each 7 Series machine includes an extended freearm area with 10 inches of space to the right of the needle and a practical extension table with ample space to hold larger sewing projects. The 7 Series is also equipped with a color touchscreen and the integrated BERNINA Dual Feed, which tames hard-to-manage and fine fabrics.

WeAllSew offers a place for sewers, embroiderers and quilters to connect with blog contributors and sewing experts. Readers will also find tutorials, easy step-by-step instructions, new product information and inspirational ideas, including ways to help those in need.
