Library Runway Unconventional Challenge!

 

Attention all Designers & Non-Designers!

I have attached the Submission Guidelines and the Registration Form for the Library Runway Unconventional Challenge! If someone is interested in participating, they should get the Registration Form back to me A.S.A.P. as I am working on a program for the event this Saturday. The Registration Form includes the library’s fax number.

 The good news is you don’t have to sew the entire garment. Participants are allowed to use base garments on which to build their final product.

 Please feel free to call me back if you have any questions or send an email with students who wish to participate.

Exciting Opportunity for Students at the Cherry Valley Public Library!

Image result for cherry library runway challenge

The Cherry Valley Public Library is sponsoring an event on June 17 called Library Runway! Based on the popular reality show Project Runway!, participants will be tasked with an unconventional challenge….creating a garment out of the printed page. Book pages, magazine pages, newspaper, any kind of printed page may be used to create the garment of their choice.

In addition, Project Runway! alum Peach Carr, a Chicago-based fashion designer will be on hand to judge the entries.

Library Runway! is open to any participants age 12 and up; teams are limited to 1-3 members. I have attached a flyer with all the relevant information. Most importantly, participants must attend an informational meeting on Saturday, June 3 at 9:00am at the library to register and receive guidelines for their submissions.
