Win a Ticket to Alt SLC & The Chance to Teach Your Own Design Camp

By Melanie Blodgett.

If you have some serious crafting skills and love Alt Summit, this contest has your name written all over it. Kollabora is teaming up with Alt Summit to give bloggers, designers and makers of all kinds the chance to create the most pin-worthy fashion forward accessory. The three finalists will win a trip ticket to Alt Summit 2013 and the chance to teach their original tutorial in-person at Alt SLC!

Here’s what you need to do to earn one of those three coveted spots:


  • 1) Create a fashion accessory that is either sewing, jewelry, or knitting based. One entry from each category will be selected as a winner. 
  •  2) Sign up for Kollabora (it’s free!) and upload all steps and corresponding photos to your project. Make sure to include your project link as a comment under this blog post.
  •  3) By November 5th 12th*, post your most “pin-worthy” picture from the tutorial to Pinterest and caption it Kollabora and BERNINA Alt Summit Challenge and include the hashtag #KollaboraAltSummit. 
  •  4) Spread the word and wait for the winner to be announced November 12th 19th*.

 *Based on the upheaval Hurricane Sandy has caused, the deadline for this contest has been postponed one week to November 12, 2012. The winners will be announced on November 19, 2012.

One finalist will be the most “Pin Worthy” and will win based on number of total re-pins. The other two finalists will be judge’s picks and will be selected by Kollabora, Alt Summit and BERNINA. Consideration will be based on quality of project, photographs, style, and level of technique.

The three finalists will win a trip ticket to Alt Summit 2013, the chance to teach their original tutorial in-person at Alt SLC and $100 gift certificate to use on Kollabora. In addition to this amazing opportunity, they will also get the chance to become a Kollabora ambassador with future opportunities to promote your work. Now get crafting!
