Do you love pets? Have you always wanted to learn to embroider? Well now is the time to join those interests and support a good cause! Austin Pets Alive is a shelter in Austin, TX thats mission is, “To promote and provide the resources, education, and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals.” As a locally based shelter, events are a major source of funding and support for APA. Because of this, they have created a list of virtual events and donation links to try and keep the support coming in. A friend of mine, Lauren Hewitt, is a neuroscience PhD student at University of Texas at Austin and embroidery artist. She has donated a tutorial on how to hand stitch your own neon paw print hoop from home. You can purchase a full kit on Lauren’s etsy and automatically donate $5.00 to APA. If you have embroidery supplies already and want to donate directly to APA, you can download the PDF and watch the video tutorial below. If you do this, we ask you to please donate a minimum of $10 to the APA HERE.
