Are you in the UK? Near to Milton Keynes? A keen stitcher/quilter? Available on 2nd or 3rd June?
Threads & Patches are having some charity stitching days at their shop. Sally needs stitchers to help make up quilts for children who arrive (often with nothing) at the Womens Refuge in Milton Keynes.
They aim to make as many quilts as possible in that time and need as many willing stitchers as possible. The times are 1pm -10pm on the Friday and 8am – 6pm on the Saturday, they do not expect you to stitch for more than a couple of hours at a time but if you could give any of your time and expertise they would be grateful. Fabrics, patterns and instructions will be provided along with suppport, tea, coffee and probably too much naughty food to mention.
If you would like to help but are unable to attend they are collecting money for the Womens Refuge or if you wish to donate wadding (esp. needed) or fabrics (new 100% cotton patchwork fabric pre washed only please!), then it would be very appreciated.
