FeltAid: crafting for Christchurch

In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Christchurch on Saturday September 4th, Felt sellers have initiated a fabulous fundraising venture to make a contribution to the relief effort in Canterbury. FeltAid and its accompanying blog Felt like helping out are the culmination of an entire crafty-minded community’s desire to help out the best way they know how – by getting their craft on and giving you a chance to make a difference too!

Treat yourself, your mum, your best friend …or get a few things ticked off your Christmas list – this is your opportunity to indulge in a little handmade shopping and help out the good folk of Canterbury at the same time.

Artists, crafters and designers from around New Zealand and beyond have donated their beautiful handmade creations to the cause, the FeltAid shop has been set up by a team of dedicated volunteers led by Sarah of Songbird Designs and Ana of Amiana, and Felt is offering its services free of charge, so 100% of the proceeds from FeltAid sales will go straight to the Red Cross Canterbury Appeal to help rebuild Christchurch.

    I have just been emailed about this. I live in Chch and thought it was such a fantastic idea. I’ve also added it to the Christchurch Earthquake tread on trademe. Couldn’t help buying myself something as I browsed the goodies you are selling for felt aid. The gifts on Felt are really beautiful and original and that olivis doll is stunning. Thank you to everyone who has donated.
