If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know about my support of Dress A Girl Around the World, I’ve also been thinking about what I could do at home in the UK. This week Lynne over at Lily’s Quilts wrote about the charity Siblings Together which is dedicated to promoting positive contact between siblings separated by the care system. The trauma of separation from siblings and the lifelong impact this can have is too often overlooked. ‘Siblings Together’ aims to provide opportunities for planned, enjoyable, high quality contact. This is achieved initially through holiday camps, with the additional aims of building foundations for continued contact and educating a generation of social workers about the importance of sibling family contact.
Lynne would love to get 50 quilts to donate, one for each child at the camp for them to take home.
So how about it?
(If I was really clever I’d come up with one of those flow diagrams for you to follow but this will have to do)
Can you make a quilt by the summer?
Yes? Go, get started now then. AND join the flickr group for more info on sizes etc.
No? Could you make one or more blocks by the summer?
Yes? Brilliant, go and join the flickr group and find a group you can contribute to.
No? Have you got any fabric you can donate?
Yes? Great, let me know or post in the flickr group and someone will gratefully receive it.
I’m so excited about this project, please consider if you can help too.
