A little request



This is totally non quilty so I'll apologise in advance......

I mentioned in a post a few days ago, when showing you some african pots fabric, that my eldest Sarah is working on her final assignment for her Food Technology GCSE


Tanya very kindly offered to send some Japanese bits of fabric and Kate offered more African and Indian bits - my answer to you two ladies is YES PLEASE! sorry I haven't got round to emailing you back on this yet


However I do have a big favour to ask of anyone who thinks they may be able to help.


Sarah also needs packaging - labels from jars, paper and plastic labels from packets etc etc etc - anything that can be easily posted and she can use to stick onto paper as a collage so obviously not 3D items. Also takeaway menus would be good.


The theme for her project is Multicultural Cookery so we'd welcome items from anywhere in the world - Australia, NZ, Japan, European countries, US, Canada and other more unusual places - if people would care to help her out. Even if lots of you just put a few items into an envelope she'd have so much authentic raw material to work with she could probably share it round with some of her classmates


Pop a comment on this post if you can help or email us on thebebbs@hotmail.com to set this up if you'd like to help her with this project


Thank you so much in advance for your help

Hi Anne,

I feel so silly suggesting this, so if it is of no use please don't be shy saying so. I happen to have an empty Twissler package (Well it will be empty when I finish the last few pieces) from Canada. Twisslers are a type of candy (one of my favourites) and my mother always brings some over during her visit. I've also have some Hershey Cookies and Cream chocolate bars (yummy) that I can send you.
Let me know if this can help and your addy and I'll get them in the post this week. Also if there is anything else from Canada that she might want let me know and I'll get my mom to send it over.

TTFN

Hi, Anne! I second May-Britt's q! What can I send? I'm happy to rummage around the kitchen and send whatever she needs...

Could you let me know when she needs it? I'm going away for ten days next week. If I send it mid september would that be too late?
