Bernina Announces WeAllSew Challenge Winner

November 15, 2012

BERNINA of America, Aurora, Ill., recently announced Julie G. from Los Gatos, Calif., as the winner of its third and final WeAllSew Challenge.

Julie G. received a $1,000 BERNINA gift card and a post about her other projects on the WeAllSew blog.

Additionally, Cheryl R. from Cleveland was randomly selected as the winner of the WeAllSew Sweepstakes and received a BERNINA 730 E sewing machine, valued at about $5,000.

The theme of the third WeAllSew Challenge was “Break the Spell of Routine Halloweens!” Participants were asked to upcycle the “scariest” items in their closet into a stylish new costume for the Halloween season. Julie G. turned her old black-and-white maternity pants into a “Baby Snoopy” costume for her son.

A panel of BERNINA experts judged the entries based on three criteria: the number of votes each project received on Facebook, the project description and the finished project.
