Give more than just a clap – support your NHS
The awesome Beth Greenwood has been ‘conscious crafting’ by creating these designs to sell for NHS Charities Together. They are machine embroidery designs as well as one cross stitch pattern (with more to come!). The machine embroidery is from line drawings from Deakin Design and The Slawter House. The cross stitch pattern is from a picture from SP Design. She got permission to convert them. This is a really small way that most of us can support your NHS.
Here are the current designs on offer:
She tells us:
The money is going to the charity through a justgiving page and I am then requesting people message my facebook page (Hobbytimes) with their email address so I can send the patterns out. I have recommended a donation of £2 or more per a pattern.
So what are you waiting for, most magazines cost more, and this way you are not only getting something for your money, but also feeling you are giving something to a cause that’s so in need right now.
Crafting with a conscience…come on your creatives!
NHS staff and volunteers are doing amazing work right now in caring for COVID-19 patients. Together, let’s show our respect and gratitude as they work tirelessly in the face of the virus.
