you perhaps have heard, nashville and middle tennessee has experienced a devastating flood this past weekend. the water is still rising, the death toll is still rising, much of town is underwater. my dear friend linda sue, who i blogged about in this post (second from the right), has lost EVERYTHING but her husband and child.
this city and the surrounding area are devasted. we need your help. to that end, i am auctioning my ENTIRE collection of vintage, retro, and reproduction sewing patterns on ebay. 100% of the proceeds will go to the community foundation of middle tennessee's nashville flood relief fund. i am listing auctions as i sort the patterns. please, even if you are not interested, please share these links with your friends on facebook, twitter, and your own blogs. encourage your family, friends, and readers or followers to share the links. if you know someone in the blogosphere who can help get the word out, please let them know. someone, somewhere, will buy these patterns and every dollar will help. i will update the blog with new links to auctions as they go live.
