Sewing Competition Hosted by Wayward Threads Author, Lorri Scott

If staying home has got you looking for creative ways to pass the time, here’s a sewing contest that could be just the ticket.

One of our Refashion Runway sponsors, Lorri Scott, who wrote the book Wayward Threads,

is hosting a sewing contest.


Here is the information about her contest:

“I have started this Facebook page to share upcycled garment design with other like minded souls. I have recently written a book on this “wayward threads” and know that several people have already purchased it.

Because the world seems to have come to a halt as far as socializing and entertainment because of Covid-19 I am going to host a contest for those who want to create a garment using an idea or technique from my book. If you haven’t purchased it but want to join in you can find the book at Amazon…

We can all stay home and create!

“wayward threads” garment contest.

Starting today, March 14th 2020 I will be hosting a contest for people to create an upcycled garment using a technique or an idea from my book “wayward threads”. If you have not purchased the book yet you can get it through Amazon here…

Take a photo of the shirts/materials you gather to upcycle! In the next couple of weeks work on your project and take photos of the final garment you create. Post the photos on this page along with your full name.
The deadline to finish garments and post photos is April 1 (don’t be fooled, lol!).

I have a team who will help me choose the top ten contestants. On April 4th I will post those top ten photos and names on my website for the public to vote on and choose the top winners. Voting will end April 6th and winners announced on April 7th.

I have a prize for everyone who enters! It is a downloadable tutorial on special treatments for upcycled garments, pocket, neckline and sleeve(less) ideas.

I will have prizes for the top 3 contestants but will keep them as a surprise, believe me they are items you will want, I want them!

Happy designing and sewing! Can’t wait to see what is created!”


Happy Sewing!
