As we deal with the aftermath of the move let's continue to open things up for ongoing donations to the Very Snuggly Quilt program.

We have been proud to partner with the Very Snuggly Quilt Program during 2017 and 2018 - and continue to try and make it easy for everyone to be involved, by way of fabric donation.

Rather than move everything twice, if anyone would like to donate fabric at a rock bottom $10 per metre, I'll box it up and get it on it's way to the Snuggles, which will be a few metres less I need to move.

We take care of the Big Cartel fees, the PayPal fees, the GST, and the postage costs, blah blah blah, and happily cut the fabrics.

Fabric will be cut and labelled with your details at the time of purchase, put into a lovely big box to be donated to Josephine Kelly and her team.

Choose the theme or colour of fabric you would like to donate, and we will do the rest for you. Choose type, colour or even a stripe, (which are great for binding).

Thankyou (once again) in advance crafters. We have a great track record of pulling together as a Community, and I look forward to us doing it again, (this time between packing boxes).

By way of background:

The Very Snuggly Quilt program is a charity quilting group run under the Victorian Quilters Inc. banner.

On the second Tuesday of every month the group deliver an amazing 170 to 200 quilts to the children who are patients at the Royal Children Hospital, located in Melbourne, Australia. (Hat's off to the care givers in every children's hospital, all around the world).

That's every month people. They undertake to visit all wards except short term stays.

It is hoped that these quilts will provide some extra warmth and comfort to the children and their families at a difficult time.

Families frequently express their surprise that people generously spend time to create something that is then given to a child they do not know. As you can imagine, the quilts quickly become treasured possessions, with many of the children bringing the quilt back to hospital for another appointments or future admissions.

The group rely on fabric donations. They receive some fantastically generous support. They also receive a lot of brown fabric. A lot of very dated fabric, and we all know how quickly fashion changes, including in the world of fabric. There only 'rule' is no Christmas fabric. I reckon that's an easy rule to abide by.
