I’m a little late in posting about this, but I wanted to help spread the word about a couple of really wonderful things happening in our community in response to the devastating Grenfell Tower fire.
Portia at Makery organised this fundraiser and on her blog she outlined a number of ways you, as a maker and human, can contribute, including a raffle. More than £4000 has been raised to date (check out the JustGiving page here) and she is evaluating charities to direct the funds to. For our small part, we’ve contributed a complete fat quarter bundle of Wonderland by Rifle Paper Co. to the raffle and you can buy a ticket until 31 July. There are zillions of other great prizes if you need further motivation!
There is also a really wonderful group of 1000+ strong quilters on the Quilt for Grenfell Tower Facebook group that are facilitating quilt donations and quilt making for Grenfell survivors.
We are serving as a collection point for quilt donations Updated: contact the Facebook group if you have a quilt to donate! We are offering free studio time for anyone making a quilt for this project. If you want to get involved or make a donation, please get in touch with the Facebook group. You can also contact the London Modern Quilt Guild for more information if you’d like to help sew the blocks together at an upcoming sew day at our shop.
