We're collecting donations to send to Mercy Corps and their partner in Japan, Peace Winds. For every five dollar donation, you'll be able to enter yourself in a raffle for one of two sweet prizes. You can contribute at the store or over the phone (as we're available). Both bundles contain a favourite Japanese Sewing book (written in English) and a stack of gorgeous fabric.
The first gift bundle includes the gorgeous Quilting Line + Color by Yoshiko Jizenji and a stack of 1/2 yards of beautiful Japanese quilt weight cotton.
The second bundle includes the wildly popular Patchwork Style: 35 Simple Projects for a Cozy and Colorful Life by Suzuko Koseki and a stack of 3/4 yards of quilt weight cotton from Kokka.
