These beautiful hand-made dolls are produced by survivors of rape and sexual violence through the Arts With Hearts program. Arts with Hearts is a Social Enterprise that raises money for RSVP (Rape and Sexual Violence Project), RSVP have seen an increased demand for counselling this year and are badly in need of more counsellors. Making a purchase from the Nana Gina Doll collection would be a great help in the push towards achieving this goal.  
 
The Dolls are available online at www.shopforchange.info/popup - but don’t leave it too long, the sale only lasts till the end of 6th June!
Please share :)

The Folksy Summer School is coming! Over one weekend in August we’ll be sharing the best advice from some of the most inspirational and experienced people in the UK on how designers, makers and crafters can be the best at what they do. It’s all going to happen in a beautiful wood on the outskirts of Sheffield on the 10th & 11th August. We’re VERY excited. 
Talks will cover topics like growing your craft business, pricing your products, social media, marketing, branding, creating a collection and selling online. You will be able to access workshops in product photography, writing a press release, improving your sewing skills, screen printing and more. 
 And when the bell rings for recess there will be locally produced ice cream and cups of Yorkshire tea all round! 
There’s a whole tonne more to be announced with ticket sales on Monday 29th April so make a note and set your alarms!

Branching out and raising funds....

I am branching out by selling some of my photos as prints and blank greetings cards. Half the profits will go to http://www.rsvporg.co.uk/About.html (Rape and Sexual Violence Project, West Midlands). 

You can also give to this charity (and many others) without it costing you anything at all! You can search via Everyclick http://www.everyclick.com/ instead of google or shop online via http://www.giveasyoulive.com. It literally costs nothing! Wow!
