The Giving Store Donation

DSCN1234

One of the things our local volunteer service group supports is The Giving Store. Last year The Giving Store provided over 400 local children the opportunity to ‘shop’ for presents for their family members. Purchasing these presents come from the proceeds of a Spring and Fall rummage sale of used items donated by the community throughout the year, a Christmas in July luncheon ticket sales and donations, and new items donated for the children’s shopping event.

I have donated a quilt in the past but this year I will be donating wrist purses. I am committed to making twenty but since I got an early start this year I will try to come up with more. You may notice some familiar fabrics as I have used most in other quilt projects.

Hope the children and the recipients enjoy the purses as much as I have enjoyed making them.

Thank you for visiting with me.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy,
    What a wonderful idea for donations. Wow – you really made a lot of wrist purses! I am 100% they will be well loved by both the recipient and the ‘purchaser’ who gets to pick out just the perfect one. How nice of you! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
