I encourage you to take a few minutes and read the Sewing for Sydney FAQ to see how you can be involved in this generous project Molli Sparkles set up. The anxiety I feel when this happens, when the news reports on a terrorist act, on children being murders, on hostages. I pray that those affected find peace. And I will sew, because any comfort I feel may be transferred to the families that receive a quilt.
There are a few ways you can get involved – donating money (Josh is very open and offered to share his transaction history on paypal to anyone donating if they need that) for the purchase of batting and quilt materials, shipping and handling, and more. This is important because it will all cost – but I think the main thing to donate is the quilt blocks. He created a hashtag quilt block tutorial and requested blocks be sent to him by January 2, 2015. You can also send blocks to Julie at The Intrepid Thread in CA, that will help with the cost of postage.
I have a few blocks cut up and will be sending them soon. I hope you’ll do the same!
