We are delighted to announce a new tapestry design, Coffee With Friends, timed to coincide with Macmillan Cancer Support’s Annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on September 30th. The Coffee Morning events are a huge part of Macmillan’s fundraising calendar. Last year alone they raised over £27 million!
We are proud to do our bit whenever we can and over the years you, our Jolly Red stitchers, have helped us to raise over £4,000. As it’s impractical for us to host a coffee morning of our own, creating a special tapestry design is an ideal way for us to reach many more people than we would if we invited people to our rural Somerset hideaway. On foggy days, even we have trouble finding it!
Our Coffee With Friends tapestry is designed to appeal as much to tea drinkers as coffee drinkers, so we’ve included a teapot as well as a coffee pot.
To complete the sunny scene, flowers are in vases and the bunting’s out. Naturally we couldn’t resist sneaking in a cat and a dog (it had to be a Jack Russell!). There are hearts for love and friendship and a horseshoe for good luck.
We’ll be donating to Macmillan Cancer Support £5 from the sale of each kit sold online from our website, or by phone, or collected from our Somerset workshop. You can buy your own Coffee With Friends kit here…and a kit would make a wonderful gift for a friend too!
We do hope you like the design. Please do Like our Facebook page and watch out for updates on sales and to see how other people are getting on with stitching their Coffee With Friends Tapestry.
