December Gift - Sustainable DIY tutorials for a good cause

Because I got something for you! 

3 on-demand tutorials for a small sustainable DIY craft for only 10 euros. And each euro will be used for a good cause!

Because me, Moise from the SSPI (the Ugandan Quilters) and Gijsje are working together to build a permanent sustainable crafting space in a refugee settlement in Uganda. It's a way for them to get livelihoods, hope, community and a clean environment.

Wilde Ganzen is supporting us too, which means they add money according to how much we raise ourselves.

Doing good while holiday crafting!

  • We want to host another quilt class in 2023. Last one was successful and more people are eager to learn.  50% of the money goes to Sustainable Quilt Classes
  • 50% goes to the permanent building so there is a suitable place for the students to go
  • Together, we make sure there are people with the skill to turn textile trash into treasure and a place to do so!

Upcycle plastic bottle to christmas gift: Tutorial

  • 3 online tutorials you can access long after the holidays
  • A list of materials needed, most you already own
  • An afternoon of fun for each tutorial alone of with friends
  • Gift ideas for the next holiday season!
  • New creative skills. It's beginner-friendly and you'll surprise yourself.

So, what are you waiting for. Help us help the people at Nakivale and gift yourself a fun tine and a new craft this holiday season.

If like a 100 people buy this gift,   we already got a lot of the expenses for the 2023 quilt classes covered!

The 'Quilting Out of Your Home'  e-book teaches you how to create beautiful quilts with stuff you already own!

For example, turn the old shirts of your husband into a quilted laptop sleeve. Or turn the outgrown clothes of your children into a quilt for their bed.

If you enrol for the newsletter, you get the e-book as a gift. And I promise you I won't send spam, only the occasional tips and inspiration to recycle old fabrics into new items.
