In January, we started our ‘from me to you hearts sewing group’. We put out a plea to the public and people started joining the group in flocks!
To date, we have over 1500 stitchers. Our aim was to create 20,000 pairs of hearts to accompany our pyjamas. We had a nine-month deadline. The hearts have come in daily, in the 1000’s. Individual stitchers have joined the team as well as sewing clubs. The support has been absolutely amazing and 3 months into our nine months deadline our fantastic stitchers have PASSED the target!! We have the 20,000 hearts we needed!
So now we are spreading the love even further and have given out some of our hearts already. Hearts went to a local women’s refuge centre run by Hestia Charity. And more hearts are going to Mosaic Family Support Charity for Bereaved Children, based in Dorset. We are currently looking at other places that we feel could benefit from a bit of love from our amazing team. If you can think of somewhere that could do with some of our hearts please send us an email to: email@example.comPlease help me send a MASSIVE thank you to our devoted stitchers and also to our lovely Julie and Debbie who runs the group!
Recently, we had donations go to Manchester where we were sure to include our bee-themed stitched hearts.
