I'm sure you've probably seen the massive flooding and destruction in Queensland, Australia. And sitting here, so very far away, I personally feel helpless - wanting to help, not knowing how. Fortunately, there ARE ways you can help!
The Gum Tree Designers are collecting "New Beginnings" sewing kits for crafters who have lost everything. You can read about it on their blog.
Jenny from Elefantz is auctioning off two of her gorgeous handmade, original quilts. Joy is auctioning off a beautiful kit for her table topper design. Fee is auctioning a wonderful fat quarter bundle. Vikki is auctioning an entire set of the Springtime patterns. You can get all of the details on the Gum Tree blog, or their individual blogs.
Toni from Make It Perfect is holding a massive online auction, and all proceeds go directly to the Premier's Flood Appeal.
In the US, Ruth from Sewlmate Sister is offering the choice of 1 of 8 Gum Tree Designers patterns for a minimum $5.50 donation to the Flood Appeal.
See? Not so helpless after all. Please help if you can - and please keep all those affected in your prayers!
