When I was placing an order recently with Sew and So, the on line needle craft store where I obtain most of my needlework materials, I cheekily dropped them an email asking if they might have any off cuts of fabric that they would consider donating to our project.
A reply came back from Dan Hall the Managing Director saying that he loved what we were doing and would be only too happy to sort out some fabric and threads for us, which was great.
So I eagerly awaited the parcel arriving on Monday.
Now bearing in mind that I had asked for off cuts, you can imagine my surprise when a Parcel Force lorry turned up with this enormous box.
Even the delivery guy was laughing as we both struggled to get it through my front door in into my narrow hallway.
On opening the box my eyes were greeted to the sight on more than 28 meters of various fabrics, some of them un-opened bales and in the region of 200 mixed skeins of DCM threads.
And then, as if that wasn’t enough Dan had also put in two amazing trolley bags which I’ve seen on a web site selling for more than £40 each, because he thought they would be useful to Nicki and I for moving are stuff around.
How how generous is that!
Needless to say I got straight on the phone and thanked his personally.
The support from Dan and his team has been unbelievable and I know that the children will greatly benefit from their kind generosity.
ENOURMOUS THANKS DAN
Can I also just say that if you’re into needlecraft in any way, shape or form please give Sew and So a visit.
They offer a wide range of stock with super fast delivery and a customer service that’s second to none!
Now on to my latest efforts, made to look beautiful by the fabulous Nicki and some more lovely feed back which is always nice to receive.
I write this to you with my eyes full of tears of joy.
I soooooooooo LOVED your cushions, Nicki, they are just amazing. I could feel your deep care and love in every stitch.
I don't know how I will be able to give it to them without breaking down in tears....
and-as if your generosity wasn't enough- the little lavander pouch for me is just so sweet!!!!
I thank my life to have attracted people like you. My words cannot translate my feelings, so I leave it to you to imagine it, maybe in silent appreciation of your lovely, special Self.
Please send my heartfelt THANKS to Sue in Essex.
I will keep you in the loop with feedback on how we will give the cushions to the children and anything related to the wonder-full gifts...
With deep gratitude
