Project Run & Play is growing!

 For the past little while, Project Run & Play has been experiencing growing pains!  A little history if you don't mind...

In January 2018, when I (Audrey) took over as leader from an assistant position, there were 2 owners and 2 virtual assistants managing Project Run & Play.  From that point on, it's been just lil old me!  

But Project Run & Play has grown immensely in that time!  We've added a shop, and started coordinating the really amazing collaborations.  So as you can imagine, the work load has grown quite a lot over the past 3.5 years.

It was time to bring in some help, and I'm happy to announce some super special and amazing assistants will be joining the team!!!

Randi of Cut, Sip, Sew is joining the team as our Blog & Content Coordinator.  She will be bringing her creative talents to bear in creating some really fun upcoming events!  

Jenny of Made of Starlite is joining the team as our Pattern & Product Manager.  Together we'll be creating future Project Run & Play exclusive patterns, and she'll also be helping manage the shop.  (She's starting off with the exciting cover photo contest for the shop!!!)

Tara of Sew Haute Blog will be joining the team in early 2022 (if all goes as planned) as our Growth & Outreach Representative.  She will be sharing with the whole world what a wonderful thing Project Run & Play we can grow even more!

We're really excited to be working together and GROWING PR&P into an even bigger sensation! 

But you know what, that's not even all the people joining the Project Run & Play team.  Come back Wednesday when we introduce you to even more creatives joining the Project Run & Play team!!!!
