The floods in Queensland have affected so many people and we’d like to help in a small way…
Many crafters have lost their belongings – how would any of us be without our stash!!!
If you would like to help out, please check out the following link.
Country Chix will be collecting items to send to the wonderful Gumtree Designs ladies, so drop in any one or all of the below items and they will be appreciated by a fellow crafter.
PLEASE talk to everyone in your craft or quilting groups, neighbours, rellies and friends – let’s show how much spirit and empathy we have!!! 🙂
*** ITEMS NEED TO BE AT COUNTRY CHIX BY FRIDAY, 18TH FEBRUARY ***
Kits are being made to send to quilting groups within flood affected areas, the following items are required:
1. A handmade sewing caddy, complete with needlebook and pincushion.
(patterns for these can be your own, or find caddy patterns when you click the above gumtree designs link)
2. A pair of embroidery scissors with a scissor keep.
3. Six individual skeins of stranded embroidery threads.
4. Embroidery needles.
5. 1 fat quarter of fabric.
6. Drawstring bag to hold the items (the designers are making these, but if you can provide one, that would be great too 🙂 )
The kits are being put together by a group of designers – website: http://www.gumtree-designers.com.
