Two of the many quilting related blogs I follow, imagine gnats and Casa Crafty, are joining with From the Heart Auctions to raise money for families in Newtown that were affected by the shooting. They are gathering donations of handmade items and craft/sewing supplies for an online auction which will take place January 14-18. 100% of funds raised will be donated to Newtown Parent Connection.
Items must be either handmade or craft/sewing supplies and ready to ship by the end the auction. You must also be willing to cover the cost of shipping your handmade item(s) to the winner. A photo of your auction item(s) and a brief description are required, and will need to be submitted no later than January 1.
If you have anything you could donate, they are asking that you sign up now, so they can get an idea of how many will be participating. I will be donating something from my stash of finished projects, but I haven't decided what yet. I'll have to pick something by January 1. Stay tuned!
