07 Mar Ukrainian fundraiser, keep your eyes open!
Ukrainian fundraiser….. My friend Sarah Jolly of The In Complete Stitch and I chatted last night and are both determined to host fundraising events during March, sooner rather than later. We have chosen the Red Cross to be the recipient of the funds raised as the most efficient way of making a difference in the short term, later on there may be other options when displaced people arrive in Ireland and other European countries. We are going to organise events happening on two different weekends and also have some special joint offers so keep your eyes open over the next two weeks! I really feel that Sarah’s bag patterns are the perfect match when combining eco printed and plain fabric, this upsized Planetary Backpack which was a commission for my great friend Athena is the perfect example. It’s eco printed using home grown eucalyptus vegetation and the linen was a remnant woven locally in Ireland. Who else loves a backpack?
