Announcing the Moda Bake Shop Sliced Competition!

Sliced is an online sewing competition where four crafty people will compete before a panel of judges. They will have 5 days to use their creative talents to develop a project with a sewing basket of mystery items given to them on the first day of each week {crafters must provide their own items}. 

Once they have completed their project, the panel of judges will critique the projects from each challenge and will decide who will  be SLICED and who will continue on to the next week and a new challenge. We will have a surprise guest judge each week of the competition. The competition will run March 4 - 31, 2012. Each week, someone will be "Sliced" from the competition until only one winner remains. Do you have what it takes to become the next Moda Bake Shop Chef?

Ooh, I'm super excited about this concept and can't wait to "Audition".

Ironically, I've had an idea brewing for an office product for quite some time. Perhaps this means it's time to make it happen. Little intimidated by Kristy up there, though : )
