Oklahoma victims: Sewing to Rebuild

Suzanne Winter from Winter Wonderings Wonderings & Whatnot contacted me yesterday to share a wonderful opportunity to help out the many in Oklahoma who’ve been displaced by the recent tornado devastation.

This is what Suzanne wrote:

I am helping organize a philanthropic endeavor in conjunction with Green Style Creations and Pattern Revolution.We will be donating a hand made item (or more) to those in need in OK. Angelyn Benett of Green Style Creations lives in the area and had family living in the town that was hit the worst, so she is the ‘feet on the ground’.  All donations will be sent to her so that she can take them directly to the places with the most need. 

We don’t always have the opportunity to help others when tragedy occurs. I’m excited about this opportunity to give something handmade from the heart that I’m sure will be greatly appreciated.
For more information about free pattern donations and how you can participate, visit Pattern Revolution for the full announcement. This collaboration runs from May 21 – June 21.
Thank you!
Shannon

    Oh, dear Amy! I forgot you were from Oklahoma! I’m so sorry about all that’s going on your way. I pray that you and your loved ones are all okay.

    Hi, I am the community service coordinator for the Oklahoma City American Sewing Guild. I’m trying to organize a “sew-in” for relief.

    I have a place, and I have the people, with fabric. We were warned if we acted to fast our items could be lost in a mass of donations.

    Are you working with Red Cross? We want to do what’s needed.

      Hi Jacquelyn,

      I am not working directly with the Red Cross, but I will forward your information to Suzanne Winter who is mentioned in the post above. Maybe you can combine efforts. (I’m sending you an email. )
