We’ve been so inspired by the work of Project Hope and by the many dresses that have been made and donated to the orphanages of Haiti through their efforts. We thought it would be fun to bring people together for a sewing party to create a few more items to send, and you’re invited to join us!
We hope you’ll join us in New York on Saturday, March 24, for a sewing party and open house. At the request of the folks at Project Hope, we’ve developed larger sizes of the Popover Sundress for the older girls and a simple shorts pattern for the boys. Moda has generously donated the fabric that we’ll be using. We’ll see how many garments we can make in a day, and we’ll be sure to have a lot of fun doing it.
I’ll bring the food and drinks for everyone. S is planning to DJ for us. And Heather Ross (who designed our adorable invitation!) will be joining us as well. (I haven’t decided yet whether to give Heather a job or whether we should just make her tell us silly stories while we work. But either way I can guarantee that everything is more fun with Heather around.) You’ll get to work in the Oliver + S design studio, so you’ll see how things work around here and we’ll get a chance to get to know you! How can you resist?
We’re hoping you’ll come and chip in for an hour or two (or more!). If you’re interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell us if you prefer to come in the morning or afternoon. That will help us to plan for the day and make sure that everyone has a valuable (and enjoyable!) job to do when they arrive.
I do hope you can come! Sewing is even more fun when done with friends, and we’d love to have you join us.
