And here's this week's public service announcement from The Martha Initiative. Enjoy!
SVP Worldwide, one of the world’s largest sewing machine companies and source of the SINGER®, HUSQVARNA VIKING® and PFAFF® sewing machines collections, invites sewers and embroiderers across the country and around the world to use their skills to help raise awareness and raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation through STITCHING FOR PINK.
STITCHING FOR PINK is a global online campaign to raise breast cancer awareness and help fund a cure through embroidery. By donating $5, you become a member of STITCHING FOR PINK and will receive ten exclusive embroidery designs - along with complete instructions - that have a breast cancer awareness message or theme. The $5 donation will be given directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The STITCHING FOR PINK awareness and fundraising campaign will culminate on October 30, the final day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For more detailed information, please visit stitchingforpink.org.
As a proud supporter of this global initiative, SVP Worldwide has created a very special free, pink-themed embroidery project called “Making a Difference” which will be available on MyEmbroideries.com throughout the month of July. The pattern incorporates words of hope and wisdom as well as beautiful pink embellishments.
