It’s no secret that this has been an extremely difficult year for all of us. The anxiety and uncertainty of it all has taken a toll on each and every one of us.
But beyond the uncertainty of what the next few months might hold, many many are facing food insecurity every single day. I think about those who have lost their jobs due to the shutdowns, and can’t provide for their families. I think about those who are in countries whose only industry is tourism… their economy has been decimated and their seems to be no hope or relief for them.
I have always found that when I am feeling really low, doing something good for someone else makes me feel better. For as the saying goes- When I do good, I feel good. No matter how low we feel or how terrible our situation, there is always someone else who has it even worse.
A month or so ago, I decided that I needed to do something to help. I happen to be a pattern designer, so I thought why not create a special pattern just for this cause! I’ve created Stitch to Stop Hunger– if this goes well, and we sell a lot of patterns, I’m hoping to make this an annual event.
This pattern is brand new and I created it especially for this fundraiser. 100% OF THE SALE PRICE OF THIS PATTERN WILL GO TO HUNGER RELIEF CHARITIES. We are even absorbing the credit card and PayPal fees at our end. When you pay $10 for the pattern, the full $10 will go to charity.
This DIGITAL pattern collection contains:
- 6 different embroidery designs of cute Holiday Sweaters, each in 4″ AND 8″ sizes.
- Color guide for the embroidery designs.
- Instructions for 2 projects- a candle mat and a mug rug/mini wall hanging.
- Printable gift tags that you can color and use for gift giving.
The regular price of these patterns is $15, but they are on sale now through November 11 for only $10. After the 11th, it will still be available at the regular price of $15, and we will still be donating 100% of the price to charity.
In addition, fellow designer Nancy Scott has also generously offered to donate 100% of the proceeds of her adorable “Oh Christmas Tree” pieced pattern to her local food bank. Click here to get her Digital Pattern and support Nancy’s “Stitch to Stop Hunger” efforts!
