Ukraine Quilt Raffle

On Thursday, February 24th, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine and began the war that continues as I write this note on May 20th, 2022. Feeling useless as I watched the news roll in, but wanting to do something.. anything.. I started printing patterns in blue and yellow with a vague idea of making a quilt to hang in the shop's window.

Fast forward to May 1st and YOU, The Friends of Salty Hippo Studio, bought enough $10 raffle tickets to donate a total of $2,210 to World Central Kitchen, a group doing amazing work feeding people in and around Ukraine—as well as right here in the States.

I had the pleasure of delivering the quilt to our raffle winner, Johanne Blackburn, last week and she's proposed split custody of the quilt: when she isn't displaying it in her barn for an event, it will remain in the shop's window 💙💛.

Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket!
