#StitchForSisters

You may have seen our recent High Tea Stitch for Sisters event? Jo and I were very honoured to pull this event together in two short weeks and have over 75 ladies attend, stitch, share, laugh, cry and make a difference.





Our event supported both the Love Your Sister campaign and the Ultimate Foundation of Hope. We did it to celebrate our survivors, support our fighters and educate all Stitching Sisters.



 


We raised over $4000 which will be donated to both organisations – thank you so much ladies and we know you enjoyed a wonderful day.


 

 

 


I quickly designed two projects especially for the day -

This little stitchery which could be used for anything – but I have attached it to the top of a lovely thread box kit by Rinske Stevens… to keep my Presencia threads in. I used a lovely Cottage Garden hand dyed thread to give it the lovely depth of colour.


 


  


 


The second project I had actually designed for a wonderful Project being led by By Annie for Octobers Breast Cancer awareness month #SewPink. Check back here on Friday for all the details.


 


Thank you to all the ladies who helped make our day happen, all the sponsors and donors who contributed and to all of our generous guests who came, stitched, bid on auction items, bought raffle tickets and just cared.

hugs for today
