One week ago, the place to be at 5:30 Saturday night was the Make It University class area at International Quilt Festival, Houston. If you are a fan of Project Runway, this can be your way to have a little taste of the excitement, creativity and sheer chaos, that happens when competing for some excellent textile booty by creating a wearable object out of craft foam, duct tape, rick rack, glue and whatever else gets passed out. The first place winner gets a huge case of Aurifil thread along with many other textile goodies.
Melly Testa, Leslie Tucker Jenison, Jamie Fingal, Me (who all act as advising Tim Gunn’s) and Pokey (who makes a pretty good Heidi Klum don’t ya think?)

Here is a video capturing a few highlights of the event with the “designers” runway walk.
