30 Minutes with Workroom Tech: Episode 84 The 2024 Pick-A-Project Challenge!

The Pick-A-Project Challenge is back! Do you have personal projects that have been pushed aside for months… years? How many how-to instructions have you saved and never tried? No more excuses. Let's do it! Pick a project and join the challenge.

You can listen to this episode of the podcast here: Episode 84

Everyone who participates is invited to join the Pick-A-Project Challenge private Facebook group to join others, share project details and progress, supply-swap, and find help.


At the end of the challenge, submit photos of your finished project and share what you learned and how satisfied you were with the finished project. The deadline for finished projects is June 14, 2024 - you have 5 months to get it done!

What’s Required...

To be part of the challenge sign up using this form: Sign up to participate

Be willing to share instructions and resources with others. If you are following published instructions, please share the magazine, book, blog, or pattern. If you are making a project from a purchased class, share the resource but not the class materials unless you have permission from the instructor.


Projects are to be completed during the challenge start-to-finish - 5 months to get it done!


There’s no limit to how many people can enter the challenge. Do you want to tackle a project with a friend? Sign up as a team.

After the challenge ends, you may be selected to be a guest on the 30 Minutes with Workroom Tech podcast and/or published in Drapery & Design Digital Digest.

What is the incentive to join the challenge?

By joining the Pick-A-Project Challenge, you will be inspired and held accountable.


You will learn something new while networking and sharing with your peers.


At the end of the challenge, you will have a completed project!

There Are No Winners or Losers. This is not a competition, but Ceil and Susan will review the entries and recognize the following projects, just for fun:

1. First to finish

2. Most challenging

3. It's ugly but I learned a lot

4. Project fail

5. Love it! Why didn't I try this sooner?

6. An oldie but a goodie

7. I would put that in my house

It will be interesting to see what people choose to make, if there are any trends or if people choose the same projects. Ceil will be making a top down - bottom up roman shade. Susan will be making a headboard slipcover using PK Lifestyles "Floral Feast" embroidered fabric.

We look forward to working on our projects with you. To be part of the challenge sign up using this form: Sign up to participate
