Have a Great Week My Friend!

Huggs, Nancy

Each year, hundreds of thousands of women and children are forced to leave their homes and seek safety and healing in shelters across the country. This year, you can make a difference in the lives of a few of those women and children and remind them that their sisters are thinking of them. They are not alone.
Make Mine Pink and Quilt 'n' Stitch Marketplace are joining together to launch our much-anticipated Pink Slipper Project, and we hope you will join us.

What Is the Pink Slipper Project?

Inspired by Tery Grahl of, The Pink Slipper Project is an endeavor to warm the hearts and the toes of those who will spend this winter living in women's and children's shelters. We are going to provide hand-crafted slippers to as many of these women and children as possible.
Our goal is to work closely with with Enchanted Makeover’s shelter projects, providing warm slippers to the residents of each makeover project, along with as many other women’s and children’s shelters we can provide for.
Not only will these slippers help keep the recipients warm, they will be a daily reminder that someone cared enough about them to make something special just for them, which goes a long way in the healing process.
The slippers don't need to be pink, but they do need to be warm and, of course, new.

How You Can Help with the Pink Slipper Project?

To get this project started, we are looking for pattern designers to create simple patterns for the slippers that will be given away. We would love to be able to offer a variety of patterns so there is something for every skill level and stitch preference...quilted, felted, knitted or crocheted.
All slipper patterns that the Pink Slipper Project provides to the public must be original and have clear instructions. If your design is selected for the Pink Slipper Project, you will get full credit for your pattern design at all times.
If you have your own slipper pattern and want to donate, that would be great too!

Please join the Pink Slipper Project today by writing and telling us how you can help. From your soul to the soles of women and children in need, you'll be helping women everywhere make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
