huge fabric giveaway* - let's support the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal

Like all of you, I have been watching and hearing about the devastating floods going on in Queensland. I am so pleased to be able to join with many other crafty bloggers and help raise funds. Toni from Make It Perfect is doing a wonderful job of coordinating lots of clever people offering sales, auctions, raffles and giveaways. There will be a big list of all of these on Toni's blog this weekend.

I've taken Jodie's lead and I'm having a giveaway, but with some strings attached (hence, the * in the title - see below for how this will work). I'm giving away one fat quarter of each of my fabric designs and colourways - that's NINE FAT QUARTERS! Each fat quarter measures approximately 50cm x 70cm, so that's over 3 square metres of fabric!


*Here's how it will work (please read this carefully):
~ this giveaway is open to everyone, including those who live overseas
~ postage is included to anywhere in the world
~ to enter, you must donate $5 to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal (international donations are possible)
~ enter as many times as you like but each entry/donation must have a separate receipt number (eg. donate $5 ten times if you want to donate $50, then comment ten times with each receipt number) - this is to keep the entries equitable.
~ once you have donated, return to this blog post and leave a comment with your receipt number (just comments with receipt numbers please, no general comments)
~ this is an honour based system. Please don't use the same receipt number for heaps of different giveaways. The idea is to raise as much money for people severely affected by flooding as we can.
~ a winner will be randomly drawn on the 24th January at 9am AEDT at midday AEDT 26th January.


I really hope you can participate by donating just $5 - you'll not only get a chance to win a stack of fabric, but you will be helping people truly in need. Even if fabric is not your thing, please check out the Make It Perfect blog this weekend for many other handmade items.

Thanks in advance, and best wishes to our friends in Queensland.
