George Arthur Sensory Quilts Helping To Improve Lives
We recently donated some fabric to the 'George Arthur Sensory Quilts Helping To Improve Lives' group. Purdy Garcia, who runs the group, has already made this stunning quilt with our donated fabric. This will be donated to the hospice to help patients and their family hopefully feel a little more at home in those last days, the quilts will then be offered to the family’s to keep. Check out their group and see how you can help.
Sewing for The Children
We recently sent a bag of fabric to Ann Charles, who is a member of the group 'Sewing for the Children' to make clothes for children in Syrian refugee camps in Turkey.
Beads of Courage UK and Ireland
The Beads of Courage programme offers support and strength to families when they need it most. When a child is suffering from a serious illness, a child's Beads of Courage becomes a physical journal of their individual journey. Diana Neal reached out to us about making bags for the beads, so we sent her some fabric, don't they look wonderful?
Pyjama Fairies is one the few volunteer charities solely dedicated to helping kids feel more comfortable while in hospital. After having so many referrals to Pyjama Fairies on our Facebook page, we arrange a bag of fabrics to go to the charity every few months. They have a group of volunteers who create wonderful wrappy pyjamas.

Last year they donated over 100 quilts to various charities, Quidenham Hospice, NN Hospital , Age Concern, Grenfell Tower Fire, a day Centre for disabled children, and a day centre for the elderly.
