New Year

This has been a busy couple of months in the run up to Christmas, we've had quite a lot of sales in the made4aid Etsy shop - we've just gone past our 100th Etsy sale and over 170 online sales.

That's been really exciting and encouraging, and we have some lovely feedback from recent buyers.
Thank you if you've bought from us on Etsy, left us feedback, told someone about us - and thank you so much to everyone who has donated items.

Here are some of the things we've sold recently:

We've just received a very generous donation from Felecia in the US, a whole bundle of lovely sewing kits and patterns - cross stitch, applique, soft sculpture and others - and a really beautiful quilt made by Felecia

Some of these donations are listed already over at Etsy - I'll be getting the others listed as soon as I can, do keep checking in!

It would be great to have more donations or more items to sell, to keep the shop full and interesting - do please get in contact if you'd like to donate something you've made, or possibly something made by someone else if its a vintage item or commercial supplies.  You can find information and guidelines about donating items on the made4aid website.

All proceeds from our made4aid sales currently go to Medécins sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders, who are the charity we currently support - they receive proceeds from all our sales, and keep us updated with newsletters about their work.  They are active saving lives all around the world, and at the moment particularly I'm aware of their crucial work in the Central African Republic, the Philippines and Syria - there is more information on their website.

Made4aid totals are updated on the sidebar - a total of £4358 donated to relief organisations.

Thank you for stopping by and reading
and for everyone who has supported made4aid in any way in 2003

and all the best for 2014!
