The Meru Patchwork Society is organising their 9th charity bazaar on Saturday, November 26 from 9.30am to 5pm at the function room of Meru Valley Resort.
Open to public, the annual bazaar features a handicraft corner (RM5-RM3000 per item), food corner (RM5 onwards), a jumble sale corner (RM1 onwards) and a king-sized bed quilt which took a year to complete.
There are special rates for the collection of traditionally handmade creations which include delicate brooches (RM 5-RM7), small pouches (RM15 onwards) and handbags (RM25).
All proceeds from the charity sale will be channelled to Pertubuhan Jagaan Kanak-kanak Cacat Setia, a home for physically-challenged children located at No. 17, Lorong Silibin, Taman Grand Silibin, 30100 Ipoh.
Established 10 years ago, the 12-member team of the Meru Patchwork Society comprises Malaysian, Japanese, South African, English, Taiwanese and Iranian ladies with a passion for sewing. Members get together at the Cafe 28 of the resort every Wednesday from 10am to 12pm to craft.
Last year, the society raised a total of RM10,000 from its bazaar for Pertubuhan Jagaan kanak-kanak Cacat Setia. Together with the public, it is hoped that more can be raised this Christmas season.
