>Craft Hope – Spreading Seeds of Hope One Stitch at a Time

>

Craft Hope is a blog that I learned about when I saw the “Craft Hope for Haiti” logo on Kim Kight’s fabulous TrueUp Blog. It is an incredible organization comprised of 3 young mothers: Jade Sims, who is the founder, Sarah Jackson and Marjorie Dolley. Jade’s husband, provides the tech support and social networking services.

As stated on their blog:

“Craft Hope is a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those who need them. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world.”

We donated fabric from our online company, Contemporary Cloth Inc. to the Craft Hope for Haiti Etsy Store Sale. Their staff spent countless hours organizing the Etsy Store and contacting sellers and buyers. Over $30,000 was raised from the crafting community to benefit Doctors Without Borders in Haiti.

They are continually moving on to new projects and always need crafters. Presently, they are working on Project 7 :: liberia orphan education project, click on the link to read all of the details. Their website has info on everything they have done in the past and it is a very informative and interesting read.

They just published a book titled: Craft Hope: Handmade Craft for a Cause by Jade Sims. It will be available in August ’10. It is packed with patterns by designers and one that you won’t want to miss if you are a sewer or know one!

Craft Hope – thank you for all that you have done and will continue to do. You truly are “givers”.
If you are a crafter or sewer who is interested in donating some of your time making projects for them, please don’t hesitate to visit Craft Hope and see what they are up to now!
