For Sandi and Clara...




*Become a donating designer at anytime! Just send me an email: chelseadesigned@gmail.com

This blog is dedicated to raising funds for our friend, fabric & pattern designer Sandi Henderson of Portabellopixie, who just welcomed sweet little Clara into the world. She was born in May with a congenital heart defect, pulmonary stenosis with an insufficient tricuspid. Her little body has undergone a 5 hour heart surgery that went well!  She is now in the healing process, but still needs much love and care.  Sandi, her husband Dustin, and little Clara are at a special hospital in Seattle Washington where Clara is being treated and watched over, while their family and other 2 children and patiently awaiting their return home to Montana. 

Clara was born in May with a congenital heart defect, pulmonary stenosis with an insufficient tricuspid. Funds will be used for Clara's medical expenses and relating care. - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/love-for-clara/187432#sthash.D7RJ4wsS.dpuf

Funds earned will be donated to the YouCaring site that has been set up especially for the Henderson Family to help with medical costs, future travel to and from Montana to Washington, and to help Sandi and her family get into a home of their own where they can live together and heal.  




There are two separate fundraisers for you to take part in to help the Henderson Family!


Several designers have come together and donated thousands of dollars of items to be given away to supporting donators. Patterns, books, sewn samples, jewelry, and more items are being added every day! You don't have to be seamstress to help out. We will have ready made items to give away too.

Several Pattern designers have come together and donated close to 300 of our best selling paper patterns into a Mega Stash and that number is growing! That is $3000 in patterns!  The Quilt Shop that raises the most money will get all of the patterns for their shop!
