My friend Cindy, from http://www.bubbacandance.com is making a great offer. She will send the winner of this contest the Lizzie Kate "Peace, Love and a Cure" pattern and the fabric to stitch it (your choice of aida or linen) for the stitching for cure project. I will throw in the threads for it. Even though it won't make an ornament, we can auction it off to raise money. So if you are interested, here is the contest: Question: How much money do I want to raise with this project to help cancer patients? Post your answer and I will draw from all the correct responses. (Hint: you can find the answer in the Friday, Oct. 24th post titled new addy for this blog). I will draw a name on Valentine's Day. Good luck.
What is stitching for a cure? It started as a year long project to help save lives. We were stitching ornaments that decorated a tree that was raffled off on Thanksgiving 2009. The money raised went to American Cancer Society.
We have raised over $1000 with that project. We went on in 2010 to stitch quilt blocks and to make 3 quilts. Those quilts raised over $2000. Amazing. My focus has turned to a new cause. Juvenile Diabetes. I am not sure what our next project will be, but I am sure that our stitching will play a big part in this adventure. Come join us by stitching or simply following us on our journey!
I hope to educate anyone reading this blog on Juvenile Diabetes. But mostly, we want to stitch for a cure!
