Apparently Elaine used to do craft fairs, but she found that people weren't keen on paying a reasonable price for a unique hand made item. A common story. ((someone recently told me that she had been asked to make two double bed quilts. When the person came to collect them, she charged him £175. He was a bit surprised, and said, I'm sorry, I'll have to come back, because I've only got £30 in my wallet. True tale! ) anyway, Elaine's bad luck worked out very well for Project Linus, as all the lovely bright and novelty fabric - plus wadding- will be put to very good use. Thank you so much, Elaine!
And another kind of donation - money! Lynne Chapman teaches belly dancing and every year she organises a show for her pupils, which is a kind of showcase plus fundraiser. This Christmas's show was in aid of Project Linus! She had donated a whopping £200 to our Leicestershire group and another £200 to Project Linus UK! Thank you so much Lynne and dancers, and since your sister Julie is one of our stalwart supporters, you know very well that the money will be put to very good use!
