Our BIG News for Next Season!

Today is the day that we finally get to share our exciting news!
It's a little something we've had in the works for literally months now.
Are you ready for it?
Next Season of Project Run and Play will be an
ALL-STARS SEASON!
 Now before we tell you who that will include we want to share a little Project Run and Play history with you.  As some of you may or may not know we (the Elizabeth's from over at Simple Simon and Co) are the girls behind the scenes around here.  But it hasn't always been that way.  We were contestants back in Season 2 and loved every minute of it.  In fact, when the season ended we wanted more!  So when the opportunity arose for us to acquire Project Run and Play we jumped at the chance.
As time has passed we've made a few changes; like adding prize packages, giveaways, a rule book for the contestants, and of course our favorite addition-- the sew-along group.  We are sure as we continue to grow and evolve that more changes are to come but what we try our best to keep constant is a spirit of community where we can support, encourage, and inspire one another while sharing a common passion---sewing children's clothing.
The idea of an All-Star round came from a conversation that we had with a former contestant here on Project Run and Play.  She had enjoyed her experience, liked being given a theme and having to stretch herself to be creative and then pushing herself to complete those creative projects and test her sewing abilities as well as knowing that there was a group of women going through all of it along with her.  It was EXACTLY how we felt when we competed!  The challenge and fun and camaraderie are what drew us in to Project Run and Play in the first place.
So...we started thinking...sure, we loved competing..and the challenge...and the stress..and the deadlines...but did anyone else love it like we did?  And would they be willing to do it all over again?  We just weren't sure, but decided that if we didn't ask we'd never know.  So we sent out some emails.  To our delight every single lady that we contacted replied with a yes, they were in!  We were beside ourselves with excitement.
Choosing our All Stars was tough we've loved and become friends with so many of the past contestants.  (Even our judges are mostly past PR&P contestants---Katy, Lindsay, Jessica, and Alida.)  We feel so lucky to have been involved with so many fabulous women and we think that you'll be as happy as we are to see who will be returning next season.

So...now that you know the whole story it is without further ado that we announce the Season 7 All-Star Contestants!
From Season 1
Shauna from Shwin and Shwin
From Season 2
Jen and Autie from iCandy
Jessica from Happy Together
From Season 3
Kate from See Kate Sew
Stef from Girl.Inspired.
This is going to be awesome!
(Can't you see why we have been so excited?)
