As we begin to approach the busy holiday season, there is one standing tradition at Spoonflower that allows us to embrace the best qualities of the holiday season – kindness and giving. For the 5th year in a row, we are excited to announce that Spoonflower locations will be donation drop-off locations for the Softies for Mirabel Drive, hosted by Pip Lincolne over at Meet Me at Mike’s.
‘Softies for Mirabel’ is an annual handmade toy drive for the Mirabel children. Every year the toy drive is open to all crafty participants who wish to knit, crochet or sew a Softie or two. Participants are encouraged to be as creative as they like as each Softie will be matched to the age, likes and needs of a Mirabel child.”
Last year, the Spoonflower community got right to work sewing, knitting and crocheting softies during the 2015 Softies for Mirabel drive. From Spoonflower cut-and-sew softies to plushie pickles, you yet again wowed us with your talent and giving hearts! At the end of December, we gleefully shipped 95 softies to the Mirabel Foundation in Australia and hope to ship even more cuddly creatures this year!
For local community members, softies can also be dropped off at the Spoonflower office Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
