Happy Monday Everyone! This weekend was long and emotional for my family. Things should hopefully be settling down in the next week or so and then I will be back in full sewing form. In the meantime…I bring you Kristy from Hopeful Threads! If you are not familiar with Hopeful Threads, take a few moments and hop over to Kristy’s blog, I promise you will not regret it!
Hi Sew BitterSweet folks, hope you are all doing great!
Melissa offered me the chance to come over and say “Hi!” and so I snagged it right up!
For those who don’t know me, I’m Kristy and I blog over at Hopeful Threads where we are all the time having some kind of crazy sewing fun with the motivation of giving back! (and if Melissa has anything to do with it, she’ll have me branching out into quilting before too long!) 🙂 We just wrapped up our biggest collaborative sewing project, where as a group, we made over 300 dresses to donate to Dress A Girl Around the World.
Yea, it was pretty exciting considering our original goal was 100 dresses! It’s a fabulous group of talented, giving, fabric loving folks and I invite you to join us if you haven’t yet.
This month we are focusing on ways we can care for the different caregivers in our lives.
This can include everything from mothers, teachers, childcare providers to special therapists or volunteers that you witness providing care for others within your community. The challenge is for you to find the caregiver and then find a way to use your gift of sewing/creating to encourage them. A perfect opportunity to bless and be blessed!
Throughout the month I hope to highlight different ways you are doing this, so please share your stories of how you Care 4 Caregivers this month and inspire us all!
You will definitely want to head over to Hopeful Threads today because Kristy has a giveaway going on. Please go check it out and if you have it in your heart…get involved too!
Wow 300 dresses, that is awesome!
Thanks Melissa! <3
So excited that you got so many dresses!! I wish I was not in school so
I could have sewn one! Definitely participating this month though as soon as I finish school! 🙂
What an excellent project! Those dresses are really cute; it’s easy to imagine the smiles that will go with them.
What a wonderful project! Those look beautiful!
