Charity donation from the Melissa pattern

A big thank-you to everyone who supported the first week of the Melissa dress, skirt and blouse pattern. As promised, the full sale price (less bank fees) of all sales of the Melissa pattern during that first week are being donated to the Life Flight air ambulance and air rescue, a charity chosen by the muse who inspired the Melissa pattern. And we're happy to say $275 was raised for Life Flight! (Which translates to $365 in New Zealand dollars.) We're making that donation right now. :-) We hope you all enjoy your Melissa pattern, and we're looking forward to seeing what people make with it!

We've now calculated how much was raised - a huge USD $355, which translates to NZD $435 at the current exchange rate. Wow! That's an amazing result! That amount has just been donated directly to the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation, to help support all the great work they do. Again, thank you to all of you who purchased the pattern, mentioned it...
