Hi ya'all! It's Lyanna over at PurplePandaQuilts
. When I'm not busy quilting, I work with foster kids. I love it - they are always so happy and make me appreciate the things I have in life. Anyway this year for the holidays the agency I work with would really like to give each child a handmade stocking - a nice one that they can keep and reuse for years to come that we would then fill with all sorts of goodies.
This is where you come in.
I am hosting a drive where you can donate a stocking. Our goal is to get at least 50 stockings
Don't know how to make a stocking? No worries, I have you covered! From now until the end of November, there will be a free stocking tutorial posted every Tuesday
. Some of your favorite bloggers have gathered together and agreed to contribute a unique stocking pattern, so be sure to check back on Tuesdays to see what it is!
And what's a charity drive without some awesome sponsors and prizes
? There are a lot of great prizes
lined up (hint: lots of fabric!) and even a $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop! To be eligible all you have to do is send in a stocking and link up the linky party on December 1st at PurplePandaQuilts.blogspot.com
. You will get one entry per stocking you donate. Also be on the lookout for other "mystery" giveaways throughout the event.
This is very important. I need all stockings to be mailed to me by no later than December 1st
. For address information check the flickr group or send me an email at PurplePandaQuilts(at)gmail(dot)com.
Finally, I've set up a flickr group
- Stockings for Kids
- where you can go to sign up to make stockings, post pictures of your stockings, and see what other people have made as well.
Please join in and help make a stocking for a foster child this holiday season and give them something they can call their own!
Thank you so much!!
