On January 23rd, AM Northwest (KATU Channel 2 in Portland, OR) kicked-off a five week Design Challenge contest. They invited four design students from the Art Institute of Portland into the studio and presented them with several fabrics to work with (including Val's new line "Karavan".)
Challenge #1~ The students must design a "new look" using at least three of the Westminster/Free Spirirt/Rowan fabrics provided. This morning, our very own Valori Wells was invited to the AM Northwest Studio to be the "guest judge" on the panel of judges selecting the best new look.
You can also help pick the best design by casting a Viewer Vote on AM Northwest's Design Challenge website. The voting period for Challenge #1 runs from Jan 27 through Noon on Feb 2nd.
The contest ends on Feb 27th and the Design Challenge winner will be announced on AM Northwest that morning (show airs between 9 and 10 am Pacific Time.)
