Imagine a wall full of textile hearts that not only look beautiful but also do some good! This was the aim of the energetic textile artist, Dale from the Thread Studio in Perth. Dale invited supporters to donate and create their own heart in any size to be showcased at the WA Craft Show in Perth in August.
Dale chose to fundraise for Shake It Up because his son-in-law was diagnosed with early on-set Parkinson’s. Dale said, “I only ever thought that old people got Parkinson’s and what they got was the shakes. I have read about it quite a bit since then and through running the hearts for Parkinson’s I have met so many people who have had friends/family affected by it.
I just hope that our donation goes a little way to help with research”.
