Seamer Skirt Wars- Debby

Help Debby win Skirt Wars!

The Sweet Spot Skirts team seamstresses each designed 2 skirts to compete for Skirt Wars. They used their creativity to design and name their skirts, becoming involved in the business process of conception to marketing and sales. Each skirt is limited edition. There are a few criteria to help decide which seamstress wins Skirt Wars:  the skirt with the most sales, the quickest skirt to sell out, and the skirt with the most votes on Facebook. Shop Debby's athletic skirts

About Debby: 
Hi there, my name is Debby.....as a creative (so my boss calls me and my fellow seamstress "sisters") I have a love for color and texture.  I tried to make my skirts River Rock and Green Peace represent that love.  The fabric combinations are stylish but super easy to wear whether you want to go sporty or be a little dressier.  The best part is they look great on every lovely lady's body shape.

About Tina:
I am so thankful to work at Sweet Spot Skirts as a Seamstress making these fabulous skirts! My mother taught me to sew when I was 8 years old and I have taught my own daughter to sew as well. I mainly sew crafts and quilts in my free time but love working in the retail business and being a part of this wonderful small business and watching it grow.
The fabric I have chosen for my skirts reflects two things that I am passionate about; Hierloom depicts my love for vintage and antiques with lace and roses for a more classy look and Plum Paisley depicts the deep, rich colors of Fall, my favorite season. I hope you enjoy my choices as much as I do!

Tiger Spotting in Sweet Spot Skirts Tights

Kristin wearing her SSS tights, adventuring in India and looking for tigers!
"SSS- I wanted you to know that your shorts and leggings aren’t just for sports!  I was recently on some expeditions in India to national parks to see tigers (yes, we finally saw one!) and many times there were many miles between one place and another - and only the outdoors for our toilet rooms.  The pockets work perfectly for those few tissues and hand wipes one needs to take care of one’s business on the road….thanks!  My travel mates were impressed!"  
~Kristin
Thanks, Kristin! Sounds like a fabulous trip. Here's where you can find the SSS panties and tights.

Fast 'n Flirty Marathon Training

As Stephanie and Debby (a Sweet Spot® Skirts store seamstress) train for the Blooms to Brews half marathon in a few short weeks, they head out to Eagle Creek. Traversing the hilly trails for 12 miles in their Fast 'n Flirty running skirts made for quite the adventure. This will be Steph's 2nd half marathon and Debby's first.  There's nothing like a long weekend run exploring the beautiful Pacific NW. Happy trails, girls!

Sweet Shenna Quilt Lovingly Presented to Sheri

We are honored to announce Sheri as the recipient of the Sweet Shenna Quilt #11. And it comes in perfect timing, in honor of World Cancer Day today. Here is her sweet friend/coworker Sharon's letter:

Hello, Sweet Spot Skirts.

I would like to nominate my amazing colleague, Sheri, for the latest beautiful Sweet Shenna Quilt. Sheri and I work together in the graduate school at Lewis & Clark College. Life's journey, it seems, has always been full of twists and turns for Sheri. Nearing retirement age, herself, Sheri has found herself spending her adult years living at the home of her parents in order to provide increasing levels of care for her aging and ill parents. Through all the challenges, Sheri gives generously to those in need, making regular donations of books and towels and other much needed items to the Clackamas Service Center. When she is able to be away from her parents, she volunteers to pet sit for friends and co-workers.

This past February, Sheri received an out-of-the-blue breast cancer diagnosis and, the following week, had her first surgery.

In the midst of her recovery and continued treatments, and while providing increasing care for her parents, Sheri took the time to continue providing for others out of her limited resources. She even bought much needed school supplies for children in need in Alaska.

I am certain that there are many breast cancer patients and survivors that are deserving of this beautiful quilt. For me, none are more deserving then Sheri.

Thank you for this opportunity to tell you about this wonderful woman.

All best wishes,

Sharon

The entire Sweet Spot Team is sending positive thoughts Sheri's way during this difficult time. Sheri, thank you for all of the help you give the community. We hope you receive a bit of comfort in this lovingly-made quilt.

Sweet Shenna story:  We keep all skirt scraps and send them to a quilting group in Wyoming. These quilts are donated to many different local charities.  Fighting cancer is a cause dear to our hearts, as Stephanie lost her mom to breast cancer when she was 12 years old.  Her mother, Sharon Allan, was only 36.  Sharon’s nickname was “Shenna,” and in memory of her, Stephanie began a “Sweet Shenna” line of lap quilts and matching pillows from pink Sweet Spot® Skirt scraps. We have the lucky job of giving them to amazing women across the country who are battling, or have battled, cancer.
