2012 - A Look Back

I just wanted to take a moment to look back over the year and share the impact the Hopeful Threads community has had through our Monthly Projects. Truth is, this is likely only a glimpse of the true impact, but what an inspiration!!!

January 2012 - Bloomers sent to China.
We sent around 100 pairs of bloomers to the Starfish Foster Home in China!
February 2012 - Supporting Fundraisers with our sewing.
While learning of ways to support those fundraising, we also sent bundles of bibs for a Love Without Boundaries Cleft Surgery Team!
March 2012 - Plushies & Soft Toys to comfort children.
We made plush toys for children in our own communities.
April 2012 - Dresses for Dress A Girl Around the World.
We made OVER 300 dresses for Dress A Girl Around the World!
May 2012 - Care 4 Caregivers around you.
We found ways to support and encourage caregivers around us.
June 2012 - Sewing for our families.
We had a lot of fun sewing for our families!
July 2012 - Shorts for little boys in Cambodia & Ghana.
We made OVER 200 pairs of shorts for little boys, more than doubling our original goal and being able to send to TWO countries!
August 2012 - Give Hope to the foster care community.
We made gifts of HOPE for children in Foster Care in our communities.
September 2012 - Remember our deployed soldiers and their families.
With the help of Sew BitterSweet Designs, we sent piles of e-reader covers and pillowcases to our troops over seas to encourage and show our support!
October 2012 - Care for babies and mothers of SD Reservations with Sew For Kids.
Working with Sew For Kids, we helped make sure  families on a couple of SD Reservations were ready to welcome their new babies!
November 2012 - Stockings of Cheer for Children's Hospital.
We made over 150 handmade items of CHEER for Children's Hospitals around the globe!
December 2012 - Rest, Reflection & One Small Thing.
We are pausing to realize and consider the impact One Small Thing can have.
I must say, I am so incredibly honored and proud to be a part of this giving community!!!
You are a breath of fresh air, a regular encouragement and reminder to me of all things good, and I am grateful beyond ability to express it. What a difference we have made all while doing something we enjoy as much as sewing! Wow....what a Win/Win!

Always remember, EVERY STITCH MATTERS!

Thank you, Kristy, for all the work and organisation that goes into co-ordinating each monthly Hopeful Threads sew along. Thanks to your motivation, I feel proud to have contributed to some of the 2012 projects. Oh, and I think I can see four pairs of yellow bloomers that I made. That's the 2nd photo this month. I also saw one of my dresses on a little girl in the Philippines. Seeing those photos just makes me more enthusiastic to do more. I am so pleased that I found you online!!! Looking forward to sewing with you in 2013.
