A plea to Quilters everywhere??

February 28 2014 | Other News

My staff and I talk to so many of our customers who have been recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer  and are just starting the treatment journey, and  others who on the long road to recovery.  We admire their strength and courage and we are heartened to hear their stories of how Patchwork and Needle craft has played an important role in their recovery.

It is because of these brave and beautiful women that we ask for your help in supporting us to help others!

Well it is that time of year again………..when we at Jiddi’s Patch try to fit in sewing 12 inch (finished) Patchwork Blocks to send to Chrissy’s Sister, Sue who lives in Queensland.   Sue and her sewing friends sew the Blocks  together to  make  beautiful  Quilts to raffle, with all proceeds going to the National Beast Cancer Foundation.  Last year we played a small part in helping Sue and her sewing buddies raise well over $3000.00.

Many of our generous customers helped us by donating blocks that were used in the Quilts.  So if you have a little time and lots of scraps and would like to contribute  to these Charity Quilts, please give us a call or simply drop them into the shop.  We aim to have all blocks posted by end of April.

We will have also have the raffle tickets on sale in the shop and we would very much appreciate it if you could just buy one ticket to help us help others.

I will post photos of the finished Quilts when we get some.  I feel very proud when we can point out the blocks that are made by the staff and friends of  Jiddi’s Patch.
