"Joy in a Box": appeal in aid of the Romanian Aid Foundation
Knitted over 250 teddy-bear jumpers, and the number is still rising. Because of this, I shall be donating a further 70 teddies, this time on my husband's behalf, to celebrate his birthday in January 2018!
Sewn knitted or crocheted over 140 mini-quilts and blankets, to keep teddy cosy in his shoe-box.
Made 15 rag dolls.
Donated ten sewing machines, which Adrian Jones, our Service Engineer has inspected and all will be on their way to Romania soon.
Knitted socks, hats, gloves, scarves etc for the children.
Filled shoe boxes with gifts for the children
All jumpers and quilts received prior to 20th October have been photographed and are on this website — do look, they are so cute. I am sure they will delight the children... follow the link to Sew Saturday Gallery on the left. The number of Teddies on their way to Romania is approaching 200!
Thank you all for supporting my "Sew Saturday" project and for your generosity in this, my special appeal.
I am keeping the appeal open until the end of October but, as the first truck has departed for Romania, no more will be photographed.
