Crowdfunding for Comfort

A huge thanks to everyone who has supported the project ‘Comfort’ so far, we are over half way there to my target of £500

Yesterday was the first ‘Comfort’ quilt making workshop, with a Women’s Group in New Mills, Derbyshire, it was a big success. 

“Thank you so much for today. I left feeling so much positive energy and relief to have told my stories.”

We shared lively stories, drank tea, eat flapjack, and started creating artworks. The topics included sexual harassment, breast surgery,  the joys and frustrations of breastfeeding and a coming to terms with our body image. 

This session was brilliant, so lovely to meet you Lois. I’m excited to see all the finished work.

Each member of the group went away with parcels of fabric goodies, and lots of enthusiasm for completing the work- illustrating everything from Breast feeding to ‘disco boobs.’  I can’t wait to pick the finished work up in two weeks.

In case you’ve missed it, I’m Crowdfunding to allow me to to send postal art packs with everything you might need for creating a piece for the Comfort quilt, posted direct to your home.  You can order your own pack, whilst at the same time raising money for me to give free packs to people facing financial barriers to these creative opportunities. 

If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining in the project, please do share my Crowdfunder the more people joining in, the richer and more exciting the art will become. My Socials are:  Facebook and Instagram

Thanks again everyone.

All the best

Lois
