The Hundred Skirts Project Thank You Give-Away!

UPDATE: Just bumping this to the top. Drawing will be Tuesday, May 13th. Get your name in the drawing by leaving a comment on this post.
------------------

To all my readers who encouraged me through your emails and comments. To my readers who sewed or are sewing skirts. Tor those who couldn't sew, but are helping by funding postage or tees. For those who spread the word through mentions on their own blogs. And because of the myriad of other ways you all worked together to help this project be successful...a big THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. There is no way I could ever truly show my appreciation, but I offer a give-away drawing as a gesture of friendship and gratitude. Please simply leave a comment and I will put your name in the hat for a drawing. You do not have to be one of those doing actual sewing to be involved. Your friendship, support, prayers and words of encouragement are enough. EVERYONE is invited. I will do another give-away when all 100 skirts are here and ready for shipment. There are four giveaways today.

Three giveaways for: a hand-painted Alaskan flowers/scenery needle case, a set of silk, hand-dyed yo-yos for embellishing and a set of hand-sewing needles



And the major give-away...A bunch of goodies packed in a heart-shaped paper mache box (ready for your crafting touch). There are vintage patterns, vintage greeting cards, vintage trims, threads, pins, fat quarters, pre-made appliques, my hand-made baby gift tags, cupcake tags and more.



Just leave a comment and all names will be put into the hat for the four drawings.

What a wonderful project--I think it is truly inspiring what you have done. I am on a major creative spree and you have inspired me even more!

I hope I am not to late to leave a comment for your very generous giveaway. What an accomplishment for all of you. I know the wonderful feeling of making something for others. I do my small part but certainly not as impressive as what you have done. My hat is off to all.

Liana said...

This is the kindest and most ambitious project. Congratulations on finishing, and YOU should be getting the prize.

Also, I just tagged you for the Book Meme. Hope you don't mind. :)

Charity you are such an inspiration! Your 100 skirt project is simply fabulous. What a fantastic idea. You have inspired me to find other creative ways to help others.

Charity, thank you for sharing this project and allowing us to be a part of it. I feel so fortunate to be able to use my gift of sewing in this small way. I love that as I sew the skirts I have the chance to pray and bless each child that will receive the skirt I'm making for especially for her.

It takes a lot to organize such a large project. And you keep posting about other things as well - you must be very organized!
Congratulations on the success of your Hundred Skirts Project!

Sorry to disappoint, Alison. Definitely NOT organized. Just high energy. :)

I have just discovered your blog and it is...WOW! The skirt project is a wonderful undertaking. I spent two years in an impoverished West African country and know first-hand the impact your kindness will have on each and every girl. Bravo!

Also, the "in progress" sewing room is fantastic and your photos gave me some ideas. (Nice to see another really organized person out there!).

Bec Clarke said...

Wow, you are amazing. I will be writing to you to join up as I can sew a skirt easily enough. Good on you for taking the initiative.

Noreen said...

Charity, I guess you can add my name to the drawing. Glad my package arrived safely!
