Operation IBOL–Packaging Up the Love

Today is Boxing Day, but not the one that comes after Christmas in some parts of the world. I spent some time the other day pulling fabrics and other bits from my stash to send to Iraq for the Iraqi Bundles of Love project masterminded by Kristin La Flamme‘s awesome husband Art. I pulled out bunches of yardage that I know I’ll never use, as well as some threads that were hanging around and a few trims and bias binding packages that I don’t even know why I have anymore. I’m sure that someone in Iraq will find a good use for these things!

So Mr. IBOL Guy, there are four boxes headed your way this week! I know that a couple of these boxes are bigger than I think you’d like, but you know how it is ’round here. You can’t always have exactly what you want when you want it. These were the only boxes I could find! 🙂 And can I just say one more time, “You’re awesome, Mr. IBOL Guy, and an inspiration to the rest of us!”

Boxes of fabrics and materials for IBOL

And what about you, dear readers? Do you have excess fabric or sewing supplies in your stash? (That sort of feels like asking if the sky is blue!) Head on over to IBOL to find out more about helping out by sending raw materials to Iraqis “who desperately need such things, and local sewing co-ops who have received grants or loans (typically to purchase sewing machines, rent space, etc).” You’ll be glad you did!

  1. Holy smokes, Nadine. I am going to have to go back and ask people to actually send the cats, so I can use the cats to drag the bundles around after they get unboxed! If you’re sending stuff MPS, hey — go big!

    And Nadine? Thanks. Nice words, nice bundle, nice plug for this crazy little project we’re doing.


    1. “Little project”?!? I think you may be a bit behind, if you’re still calling it little! I’m only too glad to help.

      Be careful what you wish for, asking people to send cats. You wouldn’t want mine! Though he does fetch and carry fairly well sometimes… 😀
