If you love quilting, and you love Christmas, this is the time of year to read your email newsletters from Cut Up & Quilt! You'll be offered a deal that can't be beat. If you stop by our open house on Saturday, November 25th, you'll get to see the first item in action.
Each year, Lynn Doyle of Bloomin Minds designs a project with the spirit of giving as her purpose. This is the third year, we've joined Lynn in her efforts. All proceeds from the sales of her pattern and kit will be donated to the Goodfellows. The Iowa West Foundation matches the donation dollar-for-dollar.
We launched this year's effort at November's CUAQ Therapy. Proceeds from the sales that day alone were over $500, resulting in a total $1000 donation. The good news is, we're continuing this promotion of goodwill through December 16th. So, if you'd like to make a difference to a family in need during the holidays, consider purchasing "A Giving Heart". Let's see how much we can donate!
While the holiday season is a time of great joy for most Americans, many families are struggling, often for reasons beyond their control. The Goodfellows’ goal is to serve as a bridge – a means of allowing area residents to demonstrate the real spirit of the season by sharing some of their bounty with those who have fallen on hard times.
Here's an idea...Send the pattern in place of a regular Christmas card to your quilty friends. That's sure to bring a smile to their face, and a warmness in your heart in the spirit of the season.
