Kudos to Janome Australia

How wonderful are peoples generosity ??  As you know I do a lot of embroidery for the Purple Bra Day here in Northampton which is a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Foundation of WA.  Everything I make for them I donate 100% so they can sell them at a good price & they donate 100% of the money raised to  BCF WA.

Well over the years I have contacted various companies I deal with & have had numerous threads & stabalisers donated to the cause. As I do all my embroidery on a Janome 300E & only use Janome Blue Tips (needles) in the machine, I contacted Janome to see if they would perhaps donate a packet or two of Blue Tips. (5 needles per packet). I sent them photos of items I have made, contact numbers for the people who co-ordinate the day so they could verify what I do & that I am not just someone after a free ride.

Well imagine my surprise on Monday when I collected my mail & there was a parcel awaiting pickup & when I opened it, it contained a FULL BOX of 500 Janome Blue Tips!!! OMG I couldnt believe it their generosity is astounding!! I have written to them to thank them for the donation & placed the needles in the big box marked Purple Bra day, as I keep all their items seperately & ONLY use them for Purple Bra stitching!!

Janome Australia THANKYOU from the bottom of my heart you are truly wonderful!!!
