Tessuti Awards 2010...with thanks!

This would have to be one of the best Tessuti Awards we've had so far...or at least we think so!

Thank you again to all 98 entries and finalists who turned up for last night's event...especially our interstate finalists! It was truly wonderful to see your creations up close and to meet you all in person.

A huge thank you goes out to George O'Keefe from Bernina Sewing Centre Chatswood, for your continued support and for donating the Bernina 700D overlocker (valued at $849) for the 2nd Prize in the LBD category.

Special mention to the boys from Jimmyweb - James, Ken and Jeffrey for the wonderful website you created, and for all the hard work and enthusiasm you all put towards fine tuning it and filtering any problems (though few) we encountered. We're very excited about using the website again for future competitions and we know you're already thinking about how you want to improve things. You're truly the best!

We definitely couldn't do this without the judges....we appreciate how busy they are!
-Marnie Skillings opened her second store at 10 Glenmore Rd, Paddington today.
-Steven Khalil has been especially busy after creating this stunning wedding gown for Kate Richie.
-Sue Vanikiotis from Anaessia, had several garments in last night's live finale of Australia's Next Top Model...instead of being there to see it all unfold, Sue still turned up to be one of our judges!!!

And thanks also to Micheal from Table for 20, for opening especially for us on a Tuesday night, so that we could hold our event in your wonderful establishment! The food and ambience was just perfect.

If you would like to see all photos of the event...take a look here.

Hope to see you entering next year!
