April 2020: Coasters for Cancer Council
Date Posted:1 April 2020
Coasters for Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea
Cancer Council Qld is one of Australia’s leading charities that continues to work across every aspect of every cancer and support those that are impacted when they need it the most. They speak out on behalf of the community to address cancer issues, awareness and reducing their cancer risk while helping to find new ways to better detect and treat it.
Every year, Cancer Council hosts the ‘Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea’ event. This event brings people together to raise funds to make a big difference to those impacted by cancer. Friends, colleagues and communities come together for some tea and treats to raise funds for a great cause. Funds are raised through raffles, silent auctions, sellings treats and more.
We’re teaming up with KreativeKiwi to support Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention and support programs. We will be creating coasters using in-the-hoop embroidery with designs by Kreative Kiwi. These coasters will be given to the Cancer Council to be for sale at Australia's Biggest Morning Tea events.
Kreative Kiwi has a large range of free and paid coaster/mug rug designs for you to choose from! Any design will be suitable and we ask that you create a set of 4 or 6 coasters.
Design files and instructions for your coasters will be provided via email after you checkout on the KreativeKiwi website.

THINGS TO REMEMBER
Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing or embroidering this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.
