Stars for Bik-Nok

BikNok is a non profit organisation set up by two sisters to raise money for children in difficulty. They created the concept of 'Petite Couture - Grands Projets' where by home sewers/crafters/knitters can exhibit items they have made and they are offered for sale, with all the proceeds going towards the project chosen for that particular sale (the creators donate the items). I think there are a couple of sales organised a year and each one has a theme and a chosen project towards which the proceeds will be donated.

The theme for the sale that will start on Sunday 21 November is 'star' and the proceeds will go towards Solidarity International and, in particular, their aim to supply drinking water to children in Pakistan.

You can see more information on the BikNok site including details of how to upload a project if you fancy donating something and, even better, how to purchase items if you are looking for Christmas presents or a starry item for yourself!

Here you can see the skirt I have donated.
