As you know Mike's is organising a Handmade Help Appeal for the victims of the Victorian Bushfires. There is also a collection being made by The Toy Society for Handmade Softies to be sent down to bring some cheer to the kids who have lost everything.
I have bought 2 bolts of fabric to make softies for this cause and will be bringing some "kits" cut out to our Brisbane meet (no charge) if anyone is interested in helping sew them to life. You could bring along any extra embelishments that you might like to add, like hair or ribbons etc. Also if you are working on a Softie project or Handmade help project you might like to bring along with you on the day, please do so and we can all help each other.
Can't wait to meet you all on the 22nd!
