Stitchin’ Mission - Voting starts now!

You’ve possibly gathered from my blog posts that I'm passionate about my friend Linda Hungerford's Stitchin' Mission <grin>
Now Linda has the opportunity to win a grant of $1000 which would enable her to produce a DVD of her lessons.  Up until now she’s been limited to leading Stitchin' Misssions at churches she could travel to within her home town (Des Moines, Iowa).  We were fortunate indeed to have her lead ours while she was here in Sydney on holiday.   Linda 3 A DVD, with Linda herself doing the on-screen teaching, would enable others anywhere in the world, like Di B and me, to lead Stitchin’ Missions encouraging beginner quiltmakers (and others) to use their talents to help others.SM Group 3-2 Linda explains it here.
The quilts St Mark's Quilters handed over at the official opening of the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre on the weekend are just a small part of the harvest of 895 children's quilts made by Stitchin' Mission quilters and sent worldwide over the last 5 years. IMG_2542
Please vote for Linda once every day for the next 2 weeks.
Voting opens 3.00am Tuesday 17th August (Sydney time) and finishes 3.00pm Wednesday 1st September (Sydney time).
