Sunflower Inspired Ideas and Tutorials for Fundraising | Mixed Crafting Techniques

Supporting Ukrainian Artisans

Going forward, I will introduce and feature as many Ukrainian artisans as I can find who offer digital products – physical items will be a challenge due to shipment issues in a war zone. 

Etsy’s payment partners no longer operate in Russia, so the listings of Russian artisans have been temporarily deactivated. 

There has been social media chatter fielding ideas for humanitarian aid fundraisers.

My friend, Sonya of Rocpoet is a metalsmith who usually makes stamped and upcycled flatware jewelry. She was quick to team up with Juniper Artisan Collective  in Cambridge, Ontario, to sell both sunflower seeds and items such as bookmarks and wine charms (shown above) which have sunflower charms and include the blue and yellow of the Ukrainian flag. 100% of the proceeds they are continuing to successfully raise, goes to the Red Cross Relief Fund. 
Etsy artisans everywhere are also similarly responding with some excellent designs. Check what others are doing here. The range of arts and crafts techniques is quite something to see. 

The following are some wonderful sunflower tutorials to consider as fundraisers and auction items.  These are all by Ukrainian artisans. Please check their individual stores for more designs. Buying from them provides direct financial support. 

This is such a lovely brick stitch fringe tutorial earrings design! The designer is Helen of HelenBeadPatterns
