Tulsi's Birthday Fund

$430 of $400 goal

Raised by 21 people in 14 months
Tulsi is turning 7 this summer! (July 13th) In honor of this transition into a new developmental phase of her life, I am creating a right of passage ceremony for her.

Those of you who know Tulsi are aware that she is a very crafty little girl. (and capable too) I want to gift her with a nice sewing machine for her very own. 

For everyone that feels called to participate, I will give you a quilt square that you can decorate for her. Infuse whatever prayers or blessings that you want for her, embroider some words that come to mind when you think of her, or whatever you feel inspired to do! (I have some other ideas, so contact me for suggestions)

At her birthday ceremony, I will present her with this sewing machine and either you (if you are present) or I will present her with the quilt squares. It will be her responsibility to piece together and sew a quilt for herself (with the help of Grandma Jane)

If you can contribute financially to this physical gift for her- wonderful! If you feel called to create a quilt square for her- great! If you want to do both, that is welcome too!

Thanks for your love and support. <3

Hey Friends!

I want to thank you all again so much for the part you have played in contributing to Tulsi’s birthday either via donation or quilt square or both!

You are invited to come celebrate Tulsi’s birthday next Thursday July 13th at the Wild Abundance outdoor kitchen. Please arrive by 5:15 and no later than 5:30 if possible. Bring a potluck dish to share as well as a plate/utensils and your quilt square if you made one!

At 5:45 I would like to start the ritual of gifting Tulsi the quilt squares. If you have made a quilt square for her, I would just ask that you share a couple of words about it or just simply offer a happy birthday wish :)

After all of the quilt squares have been presented, we will unveil the very secret sewing machine gift.

Whenever the ritual is through, we will have a potluck dinner and then cake.

Please let me know if you are coming!

Hey everyone! Thank you so so so much for donating and making this a reality! I purchased a sewing machine for Tulsi that she is going to love. She is starting a sewing class at a little shop in Weaverville on Monday and will get to use her new sewing machine there- except she won't know its hers! They will teach her to use it under the guise that it is just an extra that they have available for the class. She will get it during her birthday celebration. (More information on this coming soon)
Keep working on those quilt squares! I'm going to make a big card to give to her with everyone's name who has been a part of this.
Love ya'll!

Hey everyone! I can't believe it is just a little over a month until Tulsi's birthday! I have plenty of blank quilt squares to hand out if you need one. We are so close to our goal for Tulsi, if you feel called to donate, please do! <3

Hi Friends! Thanks so much for all of your support thus far! For those of you who expressed interest in making a quilt square, you can use your own if you'd like- it should be 8 by 8 and be some shade of blue. If you want us to give you one, that can happen too.

If you live far away, you can mail your square to :
Jane Bell
69 Ambler Rd.
Asheville NC 28805.

I am so excited see this plan to fruition!
