Boxes of Bundles

My box for Iraqi Bundles of Love is ready to go to the Post Office.

And at least 70 boxes have already arrived in Iraq:

But there's always room for more! (Art's got permission to use helicopters to take some of the loot into other provinces for distribution!) For those who may want to contribute but don't have a stash to draw from, SewMamaSew has come up with a terrific offer. For a mere $15.00 the folks at Sew Mama Sew will fill a box and ship it on your behalf. That includes filling out the customs form, taking it to the Post Office, and the postage. Sweet! There are only 150 of these boxes available though, so jump over to this page now and place your order.

Here's what they will put in the box:

* 5 yards of new fabric
* 16 sewing needles in a case
* 32 pearlized pins on a wheel
* 1 tomato pincushion
* 1 pair folding scissors
* 1 150 yd spool white thread
*The cost of shipping is included in the price.

It couldn't be any easier. In fact, if I'd known they were going to do this I would have saved myself (or one of my boys anyway) a trip to the Post Office!


  1. I agree - that guy at the USPS office did NOT make my day when he left for lunch while I was filling out the customs forms... huge kudos to Sew Mama Sew for their part in all this!

    WOO HOO!

  2. Great job Sue, and what a grand idea from Sew, Mama, Sew! Couldn't be easier for those who don't have the time or the stash. Hugs, Finn
