The second auction of sewing bloggers for refugees (Nähblogger für Flüchtlinge), starts today and runs until 10/04/2016 10pm. You might remember that I started this auction last year together with some other sewing bloggers as I was so touched by the terrible news on TV and the sight of hundreds of refugees at the central station in Munich. Last time we were able to “earn” 1200 Euro with our selfmade things and could give them to Blogger für Flüchtlinge. Now we are ready to do some more good! The last weeks we made some more wonderful things and can’t wait to see how you like it!
Wow, what a year 2015 has been. In January I finally started the business that I had been dreaming upon for years. I moved to wordpress in March, started to translate several patterns and had my big shop opening in July. In the last half year I have added 15 patterns to the shop. There are patterns for girls, boys and women from some of my favorite English speaking designers that I have translated to German and in December I finally added the first german pattern that I translated to English, the Twist it Blouse. In all cases I greatly enjoyed working with the different designers. So many creative and nice women! In November I started the Näh-Connection Ambassadors, a group of dedicated sewing bloggers that help to spread the word about Näh-Connection. They all are just so wonderful and I really hope to get to know them better and better. I also made it into the sewing teams of some other bloggers, Melly Sews and Go To Patterns, and got to do a guest post at the Sewing Rabbit. [Read more…]
Today a big charity event of german-speaking sewing bloggers starts: Nähblogger für Flüchtlinge, i.e. sewing bloggers for refugees. When, on my way to work, I saw the many, many refugees at the main station in Munich some months ago, I was not only in tears, but also wanted to do something. Many emails and hundreds of facebook messages later, today’s the day. My little idea turned into something much bigger and cooler that I wouldn’t have been able to do without the help of so many wonderful sewing bloggers. Today on Nähblogger für Flüchtlinge we start to auction many different selfmade bags, garments and decoration. 100% of the proceeds are for Blogger für Flüchtlinge, blogger for refugees.
