9/8/07-The Do Something grant funds were spent on purchasing design supplies and on wages for a design coordinator/instructor from the artisan group. This enabled the lace maker artisans to express their own creativity and design on their own without the influence from a “professional” designer. The artisans created several cell phone case designs and 2 different bikinis! The cell phones are ready to be produced and sold, and the bikinis need slight work for functionality. The bikinis will most likely be ready for production in the spring. They are beautiful and unique! We will see the financial returns from the cell phone designs after the holiday shopping season. Thank you for the means to make this happen!
