I haven't done anything recently, but I did make a few handbound books for a silent auction to benefit a charity once. Just haven't had too many opportunities to do that since then (the stamp store that hosted the auction closed about a year later).


I held a make& take last week where I had 3 teachers teaching different techniques to make a wine charm (shrink art, beaded, & chip art collage) we had wine & snacks and had people donate whatever they could to this 11 month old who needed heart surgery. I was happy with our contribution. You can see pics on my blog

I teach needlework classes to seniors at our local senior center. I own a yahoo group that offers free classes in many needle arts and operates a Stash Angel program to help ladies who have very little stash get small gifts from the heart from those who have too much stash, thus being able to learn the techniques without worry over expenses. I also volunteer many hours each year as chairwoman of the programs committee for our local EGA chapter and stitch many items for their annual fund raising auction. I am all about sharing needlearts and keeping them alive and well.

We had a recent bazaar and I gave a percentage of my sale of tatted laces to a earthquake relief effort.


I teach a bit of sewing and jewelry making to 5-12 year olds in a holiday club in our village here in England. It is fun, gets kids comfortable with a needle and thread, and even teaches some to tie knots!
