...customer creations...for a charity event

I have the privilege of helping to get the word out about a charity event coming up soon for the Child Advocacy Center of Lehigh County in Allentown, PA. One of my customers, Gina, is donating her time and amazing sewing skills for the 7th Annual Women of the Child Advocacy Center Luncheon and Shopping Salon. According to Gina, "The event provides the opportunity to raise funds and awareness about the issue of child abuse, and the role of the Advocacy Center providing healing and justice for child victims. The primary mission of this event is to fund the position of a Child Interview Specialist, whose work is critical in tempering the trauma experienced by children during the investigation process."

Gina has made a fabulous crib set using fabrics from Amy Butler's Nigella collection to be included in the sale. This set is amazing...check out these pictures!

Gina also made several other items including toddler clothes, mother/daughter aprons, infant items and much more. These are a sampling of the many items she has made for the event. Adorable!

The event takes place on October 9, 2009 at Lehigh Valley Country Club. If you're interested in learning more about this event, you can contact Paula Bomboy through You'll find these, and many other fabulous items for sale where a portion of the proceeds go to the Advocacy Center - now that's feel-good shopping!
