Introduction: How to Enter the Summer Sewing Contest

Picture of How to Enter the Summer Sewing Contest
It's getting hot outside, which means it's time to freshen things up with some warm-weather sewing! We want to see what great summery projects you come up with, so we've teamed up with Singer to bring you the Summer Sewing Contest.

The rules are simple: make a new Instructable that shows how to sew up something to celebrate summer, and publish it before the contest ends. There's no limit to the function, or materials used in your project. Sewing is required, either with a sewing machine or by hand with a needle and thread.

We have some amazing prizes to give away, including an 8770 Curvy sewing machine, and the new 3323S Talent sewing machine! As an added bonus, every winner will also receive an Instructables Prize Pack that includes a t-shirt, patch, stickers, and a one-year Pro membership.

So get sewing and show us something summery! We can't wait to see what you'll make.
  • Multiples entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize
  • International entries are accepted, but SINGER machines can only be shipped in the US

If a US address to ship to would be provided, could non US-residents win too?

fungus amungus (author)andyk752010-07-06

We can ship only to the US. What happens after that is none of our concern.

How do you win? Is it by highest views? Voted on? Editor's pick?

Half of the finalists are determined by votes by users on the site. The other half are picked by Instructables staff. Those finalists are then judged by judges picked from Instructables staff and select member of the Instructables community. Winners are determined after averaging their scores.
