Coats – A Winter Fundraiser
For the 2018/2019 winter we are running a fundraiser with embroidered coats, to support our emergency programme.
The embroidery programme is organised so that it supports itself through the sale of embroideries. The embroiderers are paid for completed work, whether or not it can be sold in Europe. At the same time we have an emergency programme financed soley through donations. The funds are used to provide financial help to embroiderers who have become too old or too ill to continue. Widows, whose wages are insufficient to support the entire family, also receive money from this fund. We also support students who are embroiderers or the daughters of embroiderers, so they can purchase the necessary books for their studies and pay for transportation to the university.
The Coats Winter Fundraiser is intended to refill this emergency account.
Half of the proceeds from the sales of coats in this gallery are contributed to this special aid programme. You can find out more about the programme here.
Thank you for your support.
The Coat embroideries are between 64–70 square cm and are, with ample surrounding fabric, ideal for framing.
