This spring, White Stuff is inviting customers to take part in a special crafty project to aid charities supported by the White Stuff Foundation. With a goal of raising £16,000, the company are inviting craft enthusiasts of all abilities to design and submit a patch for charity.
Bit of a whizz with a needle and thread? Show off your sewing skills by decorating one of their patches or (make your own patch) with your favourite motifs and be in for a chance to win a crafting holiday for two in Italy!
For every patch entered in store or online, White Stuff will donate £5 to the Foundation, and for every sewing kit sold, White Stuff will donate all the profits from each sale to help the Foundation towards it's goal.
On 10th March each White Stuff shop will hold a tea party whilst the shopkeepers judge each patch and announce the winner from that shop. Each winner will receive a £50 White Stuff voucher.
All of the winning patches will then be sent off to White Stuff HQ, where, on 24 March, an overall winner will be chosen; winning a 6 night luxury crafting retreat break at Pratello Country Resort in Tuscany, as well as £250 of White Stuff vouchers!
Every patch entered in the competition will be used, being made into cushion or quilt which will be donated to each of the 104 charities the White Stuff stores support.
1) Grab an old pair of trousers (or curtains, or an old table cloth etc. )
2) Cut your patch to size (14.8cm W x 21cm H)
3) Decorate your patch. It can be bursting with buttons, swarming with sequins
or teeming with trimmings; it’s entirely up to you!
4) Add your name/email address/phone number onto your patch
5) Submit your patch to your local White Stuff shop or if you can’t make
it in person, send it to their HQ by the 10th March
Post your entry to...
