We All Need Something To Believe In... Giveaway and Stuff

Hi Everyone,

I am a Christian. Nope not gonna talk about religion. I am just going to say that I believe we are meant to help those that are less fortunate.


My friend Jacque over at Lilypad Quilting agrees and today she has posted about a charity that is near and dear to her heart. Helping some orphan children. A lot of us (not all) are fortunate to have deep stashes accumulated over a few years. I know mine could use some culling. So if you have a little extra fabric that you can donate to a good cause. Please consider sending it to Malawi to clothe some needy children. You only have to pay postage within the US and send it to New York. I and a few other shops have donated some prizes for those that help out with the effort. I hope you will consider helping with this worthy cause.

I have made a new friend too (love it when that happens) her name is Annabella and she lives in Morocco.


Okay that right there is pretty cool. The other cool thing... she posts about what it is like to live there. She has an awesome quilting style and I could peruse her pictures for hours. She saw Moroccan Mirage and just had to get some for you all to win. I decided to sponsor her giveaway. So if you go over to her blog you can enter to win a fat quarter bundle of the Marrakech colorway (because she lives in Marrakech). You go girl!

That's all for now... see you tomorrow for Friday Fun Day ....

  4. Thank you for Sponsoring Jacque's endeavor! I am deeply touched at the beautiful 'quilters and sewers' who always seem to reach out...I am seeing it even locally.

    I can attest that every piece of fabric received will be used with appreciation. Thank you for the shout out.

    Now to visit your friend from Morocco! =)

    Blessings!

  5. That's the best part of quilting/sewing for me, personally... I love to give it all away! :) I have one thing I've made that I kept and it was my first project.

    Thanks for sharing ;)

  9. Hi I've just found you via Annabella. I'm a Christian too and have just started my own Charity Quilting Bee, helping local needy families in Belfast. Your shop & blog are both lovely.

  10. How nice of you to post about this and if I had a huge stash I'd certainly send some of my own.
    Thank you for letting us know of your friend in Morocco. How fun to have someone from another country like that.
