In 2007 I was contacted by a lovely lady named Connie from Ireland, she was gathering quotes for Irish dresses for a group (Team Ireland Euro Rally) she was with. They were going to an event in Budapest in February of 2008 and were looking for Irish dresses that they could all wear to show their Irish Spirit at the event. The event was the European Rally for Forever Living products which was attended by up to 16,000 distributors from all over Europe.The ladies wanted the Irish dresses to be dark green, with the gold trim, and white chemises; to match the traditional colors associated with Ireland. I let her know that would be no problem and quoted a special discount for them as well. Connie contacted me again a week later to say that they were happy with the quote and would be placing their orders soon, most likely about 13-15 dresses.
Well what started as 13-15 dresses grew to a stunning 32 dresses in total being ordered. All the ladies were wonderful in their responses for measurements and any questions, even given the 6 hr time difference. All through December and early January these dresses were sewn and shipped out. I have to say, I have never dealt with a more excited and just plain wonderful group of women before, it was great to work with you all.
In February the group went to Budapest and won the Spirit Award, given to the group with the most spirit for their country. Way to go Team Ireland Euro Rally, you all looked great and it was a pleasure to sew for you all. This is the link to the website that tells you all about the group’s event, www.flp-pics.com the company that they were working for is Forever Living based in Scottsdale AZ. Many thanks to Connie and Christina for allowing me to use your pictures in this article and on our site.
