Sewcialists, We Have A Winner!

Thanks to everyone who visited the jury blogs to cast your vote. We had a total of 191 votes. That's wonderful! I know it doesn't mean we had 191 individuals voting but it's still nice to see that a lot of you voted multiple times. We appreciate you taking the time.

Thanks to Make Magazine the winner will get:

  • A 1 year subscription to Make magazine generously offered by our official sponsor Make

Thanks to individual donors (this is not coming from Make: Magazine), the winner will also receive:

  • A $100 cash prize
  • A custom ipad sleeve

I know you want to know who won. I am glad it was so hard for all of you to decide. That is a good thing to tell these awesome designers! They did such a good job it was hard for all of you to choose.

And the winner is?!

A big congratulations to Joost* and all designers for their hard work.

What are you going to do with our new Sewcialists logo? First, head over to Joost's site and choose your colors. I totally did this already. You should see the new logo on my upper right hand of the blog. Click on it and you'll go to our site. There's some background ideas kicking around with what we would like to do there to make it a social site. Stay Tuned!

Now, what to do with your customized logo? Well, some ideas:

  • Put it on your blog
  • Make an iron-on transfer and iron it on a t-shirt or a tote
  • Sketch it on your Trapper Keeper (do these still exist?)
  • Stencil it on your sewing machine.
  • Make Stickers!
What shall you do with our shiny new logo?

*Joost asked that we donate the money to a charity. We decided on Boston and Bindis, which you may have heard about from Madam Oona. If you feel like it, its a worthy cause.


  1. Trappers still exist but not with the hype I remember:

    yay for Boston and Bindis!!

  2. I've just awarded you with a "Very Inspiring Blogger Award" over at my blog!!
