Today is our stop on one of our favorite designers, Bonnie Christine’s, blog tour. We were honored when she asked us last May to create a few of our products using some of her new fabrics in her upcoming collection, Hello, Ollie. We have had several of Bonnie’s designs featured in our own seasonal fabric collections the past couple of years, so you could imagine our delight when she asked us to be a part.
Here are our pieces that we created to be a part of the Quilt Market and Bonnie’s gorgeous booth! (click on product name for link to item in our shop)
Our products are handmade by women in our community who are working hard to overcome life circumstances & situations that they don’t want to define their future.
There are many women that have dreams and goals for their lives, but they either don’t believe they could ever achieve them or don’t know how to start pursuing them. Free 2 Fly desires to support, nurture and empower women so when they begin to voice their dreams and hopes, they learn to realize that they can be attainable. From transitioning out of homelessness to facing an unwed crisis pregnancy, we believe that women can find purpose and value within our community, in spite of the trials they face. Teaching them how to sew is a catalyst for increased self-esteem. It also enables them to realize that they can learn a new skill and experience success.
These foundations that we are helping them build will equip them for long-term success and sustainability in the workforce. Free 2 Fly’s main objective is to build a non-profit business and organization that serves women in our community. Upon exiting our program, we believe these women will have the foundations they need to succeed and thrive.
We love creating, designing and using our sewing skills and talents to serve women in our community. We feel so encouraged & supported in what we’re doing when others take notice and give us a chance to be a part of something that spotlights our organization. We love Bonnie & her beautiful creations! We even wish her sweet momma’s fabric store, A stitch in time was close by so we could conveniently shop all her gorgeous collections!
Thank you, Bonnie for asking us to be a part!
