HeadsUp@Calvary shop launch & MissChiefMaker on sale

Greetings all,
A little announcement about an amazing new shop - it's HeadsUp @ Calvary Hosptial, Bruce ACT where ladies going through chemotherapy, their friends & family can make purchases of useful items such as head scarves, cushions & other handmade goodness.  Most products are donated for maximum fundraising, such as these 2 bags of Posie badges, purses, hair clips, wool, pashminas, gift cards & 3 pairs of boobie knitting needles (how perfect for the cause!!) 
A lovely cancer survivor mummy from school alerted me Sue Owen who is coordinating & volunteering in the store.  I'll donate more as i get back into mass production sewing & markets shortly. 
HeadsUp launches tomorrow - open Wednesdays 11a.m. to 2p.m. with more days soon.  They are situated near the 'volunteers area' on the ground floor or ask at reception for directions. 
Handmade designers - if you have any products you'd like to donate, Sue would be eternally greatful.  I'll pass on your details.
Another fabulous local business venture is MissChiefMaker at Rodney's Nursery in Pialligo ACT.  They stock all things fabulous for children & stylish mamas with new & refashioned vintage clothing, accessories, homewares, toys . . . super friendly service & a gorgeous shopping experience . . . & on sale now!!  Check out MissChiefMaker blog & while you're there, the sTaRt oF FaShiOn tutus, oh are they a Posie brand?? 
This image has a sweet KitschBella quilted jacket from my friend Abby, a mum from school.  Have i mentioned lately how totally ace the mums at school are??  Abby is Dutch & well style is in the blood, enough said, she rocks it!!
Happy days everyone!!  I had a fabulous productive day, awesome chats at the school gate, 4 fantastic teachers for my children & a quiet, serene studio.  Then 3 calls from my husband, big day BIG DAY!!  Love Posie

What a lovely idea. My sister used to work as a nurse in the paliative care ward at Calvary. How nice to be able to have handmade goodness in an otherwise pretty crappy situation. Nic xx
