Whimsy and Grace Needs Your Help UPDATED AGAIN

If you want to buy something from, today's the day to get it.  Why?  Because for this weekend only, forty percent of every sale is going to be donated to Toni Randall of Whimsy and Grace.  The shop will also match all the funds raised.  Toni lost her home in the Almeda Fire that devastated Talent, Oregon.  Apparently she got out just in time.  Twenty minutes after she left her house and studio were gone.

Missed the sale because you just found this?  Toni's daughter has set up a Go Fund Me page.

Not familiar with Whimsy and Grace?  Here's Toni's website.  Her designs are classics.

Thanks for helping!

UPDATE:  Stitch by Stitch in Larchmont, NY is holding a raffle fund raiser and helping collect names to stitch Whimsy and Grace models to replace the ones lost in the fire.

UPDATE #2: reports back on their fundraiser.
