The wildfires raging across Australia have caused wide spread destruction with the damage taking months or years to repair.
Here at Sew Steady, Australia has always had a special place in our heart. With some of the most beautiful countryside in the world and delightful array of animals it also boasts some of the most creative quilters in the industry.
Ever since our first introduction to Westalee Design we have come to appreciate the passion and innovation of a great culture and quilting community. We would like to say Thank you to all our Australian Sewing & Quilting Partners and their friends and families. Please take a moment to look over the many organizations that are working hard to help support all those that have been effected by the recent Wildfires.
What can you do?
Donations can be made to one of the many organizations below. We also encourage you use your love of sewing and quilting to help make needed blankets, pet beds, pouches or wraps for the numerous injured animals.
Fire departments – Victoria donate at cfa.vic.gov.au.
For departments – New South Wales on the government’s website.
Thank you for your help! No donation is too small to make a difference.
