made4aid for Japan

We had a good time at last weekend's fund-raising event for Japan earthquake relief.

We were allocated a little corridor area to set up, and it was really nice to spread out all the lovely items and meet some customers face to face - very different from selling online!

Most of our sales were small items, people were there primarily for the music - but we did sell quite a few little things (the quilt in the picture below being the exception) - and we had quite a few children coming and going and spending pocket money.

We raised £120 in total, and another £15 since then selling through a local textiles class.

The event as a whole raised £1319 - the money has gone to the Embassy of Japan in London who are working with the Red Cross.

Thanks to everyone who donated items and sent us good wishes!
