Skirting the Issue: The Final Tally


(One of the skirts I made for Skirting the Issue, made from this vintage pattern.)

Liz and I just wanted to thank you a million times over for your participation in "Skirting the Issue."  The final tally is in and together we were able to make and donate 401 skirts.   Can you believe that over 400 girls will have a brand new skirt to wear?

What an amazing feat?  It really is.

Thank you again.....we truly owe it all to you. 

We are getting ready to give out the prizes, starting here at  Project Run and Play tomorrow.....so head back to see if you won something.

And let's do this again next year, shall we?  We are already thinking about different projects.

  1. That is so awesome. The ladies from our sewing group aren't stopping we plan to make 50 skirts in the next month, we are up to 15 so far yay! This was such a fantastic idea not only has it helped the foster girls but it has also helped bring communities together :)

  4. Oh Wow. That is so neat. It was so fun trying to come up with ideas for new skirts. I do not like to sew something over and over. So I had a blast thinking of the girls who would get to wear my skirts. Maybe next year a boys round?... Jlucille
