Quilts for a Cause: Project Linus UK
Happy Saturday you guys!
Today I’m busy teaching workshops at The Vilene Sewing Club at the Sewing For Pleasure Show at the NEC and – if the last couple of days are anything to go by – it is likely to be a crazy busy day for me!
So, today I thought that I would share with you a very special charity project, hosted by the lovely Toria from Little Squish. After hearing about all the good work that Project Linus UK do to provide support and a sense of security in troubled times for babies, children and teenagers with the gift of handmade quilts and knitted or crochet blankets, Toria knew that she wanted to get involved.
Not only is stitching super woman Toria vowing to save up all her scraps as she worked on her designs throughout the year and gradually create glorious custom quilts to pass over to the team of volunteers at Projet Linus UK, but is also rallying the troops!
Toria is calling on you awesome stitchers to create a single 6in x 6in square, which you can send off to her and she will transform into a beautiful and thoughtful quilt to be sent over to Project Linus. You can register your interest here and she will be in touch with you by 20 April to update you on the details of the quilt – this is open to stitchers the world over, as long as you are happy to create a 6in x 6in square and cover the (UK) postage costs!

So…what are you all waiting for?
