Last year at about this time Art, the IBOL Guy, put out the call for some bundles of sewing (or knitting) supplies to be distributed to women in Iraq, Iraqi Bundles of Love, IBOL. Well, he’s organized it again this year…..and he’s not even stationed in Iraq any more. Way to go Art! There are two types of recipients this year, directly to the women and, new this time, to sewing co-ops, yea!! Here’s a picture of one of my bundles from last year.
If you are moved to create a bundle, which you can send in a flat rate USPS box to an AP address, go here and leave Art a comment. He’ll send you the AP address. The only catch….bundles must be mailed by Oct 1, 2010! On the right side, under Pages, there’s a link to suggestions of what to include in the box…..fabric, of course, but also buttons, scissors, pins, thread, beads….. 🙂
