TS Supports the Elephant Sanctuary

Posted under Animals,Blog,Charities,Updates by admin on Monday 9 April 2012 at 4:45 pm

Tantalizing Stitches currently supports The Elephant Sanctuary. Located in Tennessee, The Elephant Sanctuary was founded in 1995 and is the nation’s largest natural habitat refuge developed specifically for endangered African and Asian elephants.

El (TS owner) chose this charity because the Sanctuary provides love and care to her favorite animals – elephants.

Pam first introduced El to The Elephant Sanctuary in 2010, when she wrote about Amanda’s work at the Sanctuary.

Meet DLM Designs by Sandy

Posted under Animals,Blog,CFA,Updates by admin on Sunday 15 May 2011 at 4:37 pm

My friend Sandy is moving!

We met online through the Crafting for Animals Guild. The Crafting For Animals Guild is a group of artists and crafters on Artfire.com who are dedicated to catering to the needs of animals by either creating and designing items for animals or by supporting and / or raising funds for charitable animal organizations. I started the group several years ago. Sandy joined last year and was a big help in spiriting our group. Just like me, she loves animals.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances, she is moving and needs to find new forever homes for her furbabies. I have had to do this in the past as well. It really is a hard thing to do but sometimes the best things to do are the hardest to live with. If you are interested in knowing more about her little pooch, please let me know.

In addition wouldn’t it be wonderful if some of her creations found forever homes? Take a look of what she has to offer here.

Pregnant Mare Rescue’s Breakfast with the Babies’ Fundraiser

Posted under Animals,Blog,CFA,Charities,Updates by admin on Friday 6 May 2011 at 11:49 am

A fellow Crafting for Animals Guild member, Lindsey of CardstockEquine, shared with me about a fundraiser for the Pregnant Mare Rescue. Coincidentally, this rescue is based in Aptos, California, very close to where I am based. Pregnant Mare Rescue is a California 501(c)3 Not for Profit Organization.

Lindsey has been communicating with one of the volunteers at Pregnant Mare Rescue about their program. After doing some research on her own, she feels confident that this organization is doing a good job and has expressed a willingness to support them.

Currently, the organization is looking for handcrafted donations for their silent auction as well as attendees to their Breakfast with the Babies’ fundraiser. If you are an artist or artisan and would like to help support them, please contact 408.540.8568 or pmrhorses@pregnantmarerescue.com.

Breakfast with the Babies
Location: Corralitos Grange, 165 Little Corral Way in Watsonville
Time: 8 am – 1 pm
Date: June 25, 2011
