Another Win Win

I love win wins! In June, Theresa at Shakespear's Peddler wrote about an e mail she had received from a customer.  Jo, the customer, who is a teacher, was writing to Theresa about teaching lower income students about Arts and Crafts.  Jo teaches the students about samplers specifically Loara Standish. Each student is given floss and fabric to begin their own sampler.  Jo went on to say she has about 1,000 students a week.  Image the amount of floss and fabric she would need!

So. . . I heard opportunity knocking and started cleaning out my stash to share with Jo and her students.

Yesterday, I received the nicest thank you  note from Jo and her students!  The best part--Jo is teaching the next generation about needlework.  A win win for everyone.


  1. What a great way to de-stash and help new stitchers at the same time.

  2. Jo sounds like a very special teacher. I'm glad you found the perfect place to send your stash.

  3. Awww, how neat! Definitely a win win situation. :)

  4. It is a win win! Don't you feel good being able to help? Nothing like helping someone else, and to awaken the desire to carry on something you love in someone else.
