    Congratulations Melanie! And thank you to McCalls! This contest was a wonderful experience for me overall and I grew so much personally from it. Thanks for helping me do that!

    Congratulations, Melanie!! Enjoy your prizes!!

    Thank you McCall’s for the chance to “grow” with designing. I have never entered any contest like this and now know “I can do it”! While working with the challenges I was working a full-time and a part-time job, so time for sewing was very limited to weekends only, but I did it!

    The ride of a lifetime maybe over me, but the memories and friends made live forever!
