SEWING FOR THE GREATER GOOD!
SOCK MONKEYS LOVE BEING HELPFUL.
This post was and really still is all about Valentines day, and creating a funny hand made gift for someone special.
But this last week Nora's crafty thoughts have been hijacked by the mind numbingly awful news coming from Haiti.
How can we living our comfortable lives here in safe old England make a difference in a situation so catastrophic?
So I have decided to change the emphasis of my next Secret Sewing Club workshop.
It is now all about
SEWING FOR THE GREATER GOOD.
Something Nora and I are very keen on.
Please read and mentally digest the following, pass on the word, and get involved.
SOCK MONKEYS LOVE VALENTINES
The Earl Ferrers Stitch and Bitch have invited Flaming Nora's
Secret Sewing Club
to host a valentine's sock monkey workshop.
Tuesday 9 Th February.
At the Earl Ferrers Pub, 21 Ellora Rd, Streatham, London, SW16
All materials provided.
Come along and meet new people, have fun and learn something new.
All this and you will be performing a selfless act at the same time.
Sock monkeys are the perfect project for both beginners and more advanced sewers.
They make wonderful friends and love to hug.
All this and more from a pair of socks!
All profit raised from the workshop will be going to the British Red Cross Haiti appeal.
I will only be recovering the cost of providing materials for the workshop,
every thing else goes to the greater good of humanity!
So the more people who come along, the more we will be able to donate.
The cost for the workshop is slightly higher that I originally advertised, but I'm sure you understand why.
