craftivism :: help for houston


this has been one intense hurricane season. it's almost unimaginable, seeing the photos and accounts of the disaster areas. harvey made landfall in my home state of texas in late august 2017, and the destruction there has been devastating. though the flood waters have receded, the efforts to rebuild will continue for a long time to come.

a couple weeks ago, i teamed up with my friend, artist and writer extraordinaire robin plemmons, to create this very special project.

with robin's unmistakable style and my stitching skills, we created this bluebonnet design not only for the people of houston, texas, but for everyone. for all of us who care about rebuilding homes, lives, and community, through meeting the most basic of human needs, this is for you.

100% of profits from the sale of this item will be donated to the houston food bank.

if you feel moved to join us, the PDF pattern is available here.

UPDATE: so far, we've raised enough to fill almost 700 hungry bellies! i'm so thrilled with the response.

if you're one of the many who has already purchased this pattern, thank you so much! we are making a difference with this project.
