A new year of our Design Star Club and Contest is here! It is with great excitement that we announce the new line-up of 11 talented makers that will be curating beautiful bundles for you throughout the year.
If you are new to our Design Star Club, we created this club last year to explore the art of creating beautiful, unique bundles from the best that modern fabric has to offer. The goal was two-fold. First, we wanted to bring you the most usable, must-have modern fabrics for your stash and second, we wanted to inspire creativity by taking some of the guess work out of selecting fabric for your next project. And I can honestly say I was so in love with of all the bundles and projects that resulted. And we are looking forward to doing it again this year!
As a member of the club, you will receive a bundle of 16 coordinating fabrics – solids allowed, but not required this year – selected by each of our 11 fabulous design stars for 12 months. Here is the lineup…
June 2017 – Kate Basti
July 2017 – Nicolas Ball
August 2017 – Rita Hodge
September 2017 – Michelle Wilkie
October 2017 – Cheri Lehnow
November 2017 – Amy Smart
December 2017 – Svetlana Sotak
January 2018 – Rebecca Bryan
February 2018 – Latifah Saafir
March 2018 – Tiffany Marshall
April 2018 – Suzy Williams
Hmmm, 11 design stars, 12 months…but who will select the bundle for that final month?!?
Here’s the magic…IT COULD BE YOU!
Throughout the year we will be doing another competition to find our next Stash Fabrics Design Star to curate the final bundle of the club and win tons of fabric!
Round 1 (June 1, 2017 – July 31, 2017)
Initial entries accepted to the contest. To enter the contest, you will curate a custom bundle of fabric in our shop using our design wall feature and either share your design wall on Facebook and/or Pinterest or post a screenshot of your bundle on Instagram and tag #stashfabricsdesignstar. We will pick the top 12 entries to go onto the next round.
- You do not have to have an account on our site to create a design wall, but we recommend that you create one to ensure that your design wall is saved between sessions.
- When viewing a listing in our shop, you will see an option under the price to add that fabric to your design wall. You can access your design wall through a link in the top right corner of your screen.
- Entry bundles should be 16 fabrics.
- You do not have to be a member of the club to enter.
- Multiple entries accepted per person.
Round 2-4 (September, October, November 2017)
Each month a new themed contest will begin. We will present the participants with a collage for which they are to develop a bundle from the fabrics in our shop around using the design wall. There will be a vote each round and the bottom 3 people will drop off.
Final Round (January 2018)
Final 3 people will design their best, most kick ass bundle using the fabric from our shop. A vote will determine the grand prize winner to be announced in February 2017.
So what’s in it for you? I mean aside from having your beautiful face added to our amazing graphic and major bragging rights. We thought free fabric was appropriate….
The winner will receive the title of Stash Fabrics Design Star and they will curate the 12th and final bundle in our club. They will also receive ALL 12 fat quarter bundles from the Design Star Club including their own! 192 fat quarters total!
First runner up will receive their curated bundle from the grand prize round and a $50 gift certificate to our shop.
Second runner up will receive their curated bundle from the grand prize round and a $25 gift certificate to our shop.
That’s over $600 in prizes!!!! And did I mention it could be you? We invite you to join the club today and start thinking about those bundles. It’s going to be fun, fun, fun!
