First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit this page and see what it is all about. Let me first give you a little history on what this project is and how it got started. As I began to plan my first Cross Stitch Club retreat in 2015, I decided that I wanted to do a fundraiser and I decided to choose the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey, PA.
If you aren’t familiar with what the Ronald McDonald House foundation does, their main focus is providing families with a place to stay when their children have to be put in a hospital far from home. There are over 300 Ronald McDonald Houses and Family rooms throughout the world!
Early in 2015, I contacted the Hershey RMH and told them of my plans to have a fundraiser for their House and of course they were very appreciative and excited. One of the designers that I asked to be a guest designer for this retreat was Ursula Michael. If you are not familiar with her work, she does a lot of word designs. She takes a theme and then makes the shape of that theme with words that have to do with that theme. This is one of my favorites that I used for making t-shirts for another fundraiser I did for the PA Wounded Warrior, Inc at our 2016 retreat:
