Two great gifts for children are: quilts and books! And, to SewCalGal’s delight, with the help and support of Martingale, we want to share insights with you about International Book Giving Day. And, we are also hosting a giveaway for a copy of “Cute Quilts for Kids“, by Kristin Roylance.
International Book Giving Day a 100% volunteer run volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. There are oodles of easy ways to get involved. You may want to plan a fundraiser for a non-profit literacy program of your choice. Or maybe coordinate a book swap. Bloggers can help with PR and join a link-up party from February 14th through February 21st. You can even help distribute copies of a free downloadable poster for this event.
Participants may also want to give a book to a friend or family member, leave a book in a waiting room, donate a book, or help in many other ways. Visit International Book Giving Day’s website for more information on how you may want to help.
And, as many quilters enjoy making quilts for kids, SewCalGal is excited to share insights with you on a perfect new book:
