Donation to Festival
People often ask me to donate a Paisley Power product to their charity to help raise money. A few days ago I agreed to donate a paisley elephant cushion to a charity called Project 49. They are based in my town, Southend-on-Sea and provide day services for adults with learning disabilities. They are helping to organise a Well-Being and Vegan festival on 25th March 2018 and asked me if I would donate a product for their prize raffle. In the photo below you can see me cutting the fabric to make the cushion. Everything about this cushion is local: I drew the design here, I bought the fabric here at Kayes Textiles, I printed the fabric at The Old Waterworks and the cushion will be sewn by my friend Zoe Marshall-Smith who also lives locally. The latest environmentally-friendly water-based inks were used to print the fabric. I am sure the festival will be very enjoyable and educational. If you are in the Southend area, please come and visit. You might get lucky in the raffle and win the paisley elephant cushion!
