As a long time Sheepishly Sharing community member, Sister Margaret Mary reached out to us to ask for our assistance. Sister runs a top-notch music program for her school located in a lower income area of Kentucky. We all know that The Arts are seriously underfunded in most every school so educators need to be creative to achieve funding to 1) keep the program alive and 2) keep improving it. Sister takes that mission to heart and one of her fundraisers is a booth at her school’s fall festival. She’s allowed to keep the proceeds from her sales for her music program.
In the past, she and her students made the inventory but Sister is currently battling health problems that prevent her from producing an adequate number of items! (And it’s worth mentioning that Sister Margaret Mary is vision impaired but can crochet much better and faster than I can when her pain allows! She has even developed an adaptive crochet technique that she teaches in this video!)
How We Can Help
Could you spend some crafting time making Christmas-themed items for Sister’s craft table?! ANY type of craft is welcome! Search Pinterest for “Christmas Crafts” to send your imagination soaring! Unfortunately, non-Christmas themed items don’t seem to sell at her booth so let’s focus on holiday items only!
Deadline: October 5, 2018
