This is just a quick post today to make sure everyone's up to date with what's going on in the Button Fayre world!
As some of you may be aware, one of my daughter's was diagnosed with Crohn's disease 3 and a half years ago at the age of 9. She has it severely and every day is a struggle to keep her stable but she's an amazing young lady, full of life, hope and courage, and I'm so incredibly proud of her.
After recent personal struggles with a flare up of the condition, I found the most wonderful charity called CIRCA ( Children with Crohn's and Colitis ) who not only give you lots of information and sends it out straight away, but they also give lots of support to child sufferers and their parents/care givers. This is fantastic because so far we've been told by our French specialist not to look the condition up and she's provided us with very little information and isn't helpful when she's needed either.......so, taking matters into my own hands I've set up this amazing sewing competition, a kind of spin off of ' The Great British Sewing Bee '.
I wanted the competition to be extremely fun, creative and imaginative and anything goes, not just clothes!
I'm providing the link below as it's on Button Fayre's Facebook page and so please do go and take a look and make sure to read all rules and regulations.
Once all entries are in and the competition is closed on 1st June 2014 I'm going to announce the winner one week later and then start preparing for a big online auction where all proceeds will go straight to CIRCA, as a donation, to help with the ongoing research into Crohn's disease and other IBD diseases and hopefully to one day find a cure, that would just be amazing!
The prize for the winner is just so lovely too! A book by Poppy Treffry, 4 fat quarter's of Liberty fabric and another couple of contrasting fat quarter's, ribbons and buttons. Everything you need to get creative!
So there you go and I hope all entrants have a lot of fun with this competition and I also hope that you can tell all your friends about it too, even if you don't want to enter maybe you know of someone who may want to?
