The Super Online Sewing Match Contest!

Have you heard about the Super Online Sewing Match, hosted by Sew, Mama, Sew? Inspired by the popular Great British Sewing Bee, the Super Online Sewing Match is starting soon, and looking for contestants! The great part is that anyone in North America can join, without having to leave the comfort of their home. It’s all online! And you can win a brand-new sewing machine, as well as tons of other prizes.

(Name updated July 10th – see post on Sew, Mama, Sew here)

Here’s the link to the launch post, with details on how the contest will work: The Super Online Sewing Match: a contest sponsored by Sew Mama Sew + Janome!


Guess who is going to be providing the pattern for one of the challenges? I can’t tell you which pattern but there is going to be a round where all contestants will be sewing a Sewaholic Pattern. I’m also providing prize packages for the winners.

I’m so excited to be involved and can’t wait to see the contestants’ versions of my pattern!

Want to be a contestant? Check out the details here, and throw your name in the hat! You can even be involved without being an official contestant by sewing along with each challenge, and sending in your photos to win prizes.

What a great way to get inspired for summer sewing!

    Are people outside of North America allowed to send pictures for prizes or are we locked out of everything?

      Good question, I’d check the rules post and see! I think unfortunately that the main prizes are North America only but not sure about the community prizes.
      I know, I like when all contests allow anyone to enter but it has something to do with the prize sponsor Janome and where they can ship their products.

      I wasn’t clear from the contest rules page so I’ve asked my contact at Sew Mama Sew and will reply when I hear back!

        Jealous of the thought of a meutep (scary random readers and all)! I only know where to buy the non-vintage fabric in NYC, but I do have one recommendation: in addition to Met Costume Institute, you should check out the FIT Museum, if you’ve never been.

      Good news, the community prizes are for anyone, worldwide!! Thanks for asking the question.

    Oh that’s an awesome idea! I loved the show and often daydream about being part of something like that, but now I’m chickening out >.> I’ve only ever made dresses before and I’m kind of apprehensive of sewing anything that’s not a dress… esp if it turned out to be menswear shirt or pants!

      It might be an exciting challenge to get you to try new things! But if that sounds too scary and you watch from the sidelines at least you’ll get an idea what the contest is all about if they run it again!

    I’m so excited about this! It will be fun to watch.

    • Tasia July 3, 2013 at 1:22 pm #

      I think so too!

    Oh, sounds fun! I shall definitely be following along with that; I loved the TV series (as an ex-pat Brit living in Canada!) and felt inspired after watching some of the things they made!

    • Tasia July 3, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

      Me too, I know what one of the challenges will be (one of my patterns) but not the others!

    Woo Hoo! Sent my e-mail today! My fingers will be crossed!

    • Tasia July 3, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

      Good luck!!

    wow, this sounds super cool. I think I am going to enter the contest, it will be a good challenge if I get picked!

  7. Merry July 3, 2013 at 10:30 pm #

    Well I sent in my email. I could really use a new quality sewing machine for my business, so fingers crossed.

  8. Elena Knits July 4, 2013 at 12:21 am #

    Thank you for letting us know this. Pity that we people from outside North America cannot partake in the official contest, but at least we can sent the pictures.

    What a cool initiative! And sewing a Sewaholic Pattern, great challenge!

    I’ve thrown my name in the hat. I’ve got no blog and often think those who blog are more likely to get the endorsements. But if it will help me stash bust, I’m interested and would even just sew along if nothing else.

      Good luck!
