Handmade for Haiti Update

Since posting about this Oxfam Charity Event back in August I have been astounded at the generosity of my readers and friends in donating your beautiful handy work for this very special cause. Over the last few weeks I have received a steady stream of handmade donations from pretty cards and bookmarks, to jewellery, bags, purses, stunning felted characters, halloween gifts, sculpted fairies and much more. The quality of workmanship in all of these items is amazing and your generosity is overwhelming. Items have come from all over the world, not just the UK!
I have just over two weeks to go before I host this event at my local Oxfam Shop (if anyone missed my post about it, please go back to my August postings and you will find all details on this event, and how to donate). I am still accepting donations and would be most grateful for any further handmade items that you may be able to send, I will be dressing the shop window and counter area on Sunday 4th October ready to open on the Monday, so there is still time to send your donations to me. If you wish to do so please leave a comment on this post along with your email address and I will forward mailing details to you.

As promised I will be blogging about this on the week commencing Monday 5th October, and the blog post will include photo's from the shop, close up pictures of some of the donated items, as well as a list and links to all who have so kindly participated.

I am still busy making my own donations to include Christmas Cards, Gift Tags, Bookmarks, Fabric Hearts and Magnets and I am also in the process of designing the Poster for the Oxfam Window as well as price tags for each item, so it's all go for the next two weeks!! But keep sending your donations if you can, for the more I receive the longer we can keep the "Handmade for Haiti" window stocked and also crank up the fund raising amount. Thank you so much, you are all wonderfully generous and talented followers!! Big Hugs. xx
