Pieces of HOPE - Giveaway!

You've seen me use the fabrics from this amazing collection, Pieces of Hope, all month!
Today I'd like to take a few minutes to share with you a bit more about this collection.

This collection comes from the talent bursting Riley Blake Designs!
 

When I first read about this collection and the purpose behind it, I was instantly captivated and have been stalking my favorite shops for months now awaiting the announcement that it was available! I knew it would be perfect for our "Give Hope" project this month and when I emailed to share, Riley Blake generously sent a bundle over for me to work with.(...and to share with you! :) more in a minute...stay with me here....)

This collection was created in support of Autism awareness and will help fund the ongoing research and work of Autism Speaks.
Find them on facebook here, and Twitter!

From their website,

"Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes or pediatric AIDS combined. Autism affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys–a 600 percent increase in prevalence over the past two decades."

Chances are your family has been touched by someone living with autism.
We all can offer support and HOPE!

As you sew, you have the opportunity to "Give Hope" with the message of your handmade gifts using this fabric collection too! Riley Blake is donating a significant portion of the sale of this collection to Autism Speaks! The colors and prints are all fabulous!
Can you pick a favorite print???


*TWO* lucky people have the chance to WIN a Pieces of Hope fabric & button bundle!!!

Simply follow the Rafflecopter prompts to enter. :)

As the parent of an Autistic daughter, I wanted to thank you for helping to raise awareness and support Autism causes! The more people are aware of Autism, the less I feel like the experiences our family are something people feel sorry for. While what we're dealing with is outside the norm, I wouldn't trade it in for anything.

My Pieces of Hope fabric came Tuesday- I couldn't wait and ordered some from fatquartershop. But I'm being selfish- still entering your giveaway. I didn't order the polka dot.
So excited it's finally here!

Thank you for this giveaway, and for bringing awareness of the autism community.

In my rafflecopter form, I said I follow you via email, but should have said via GFC and RSS. Sorry!
