Between 26th-29th November 2021, Paraffle Embroidery are partnering with Sand Dams Worldwide and will donate 25% of all of their sales from the Black Friday weekend towards our Big Give Christmas Challenge (the UK's biggest match funding campaign where you could have your donations towards sand dam projects doubled!) 

Paraffle Embroidery was founded by Sammy Bishop in 2016 while she was studying for a PhD in Edinburgh. Inspired by nature and a belief that craft should be easy and accessible, it is Sammy’s mission to use her business as a force for good in the world. Paraffle craft kits use sustainable, organic, and ethically sourced materials wherever possible, and the business has strong links with a number of charities, both in the UK and internationally.

“I’m so happy to be partnering with Sand Dams Worldwide [formerly Excellent Development] this Black Friday weekend. Their work is simple, practical, and effective - it empowers vulnerable communities to combat the effects of climate change, and helps regenerate the local natural environment and surrounding ecosystems, too. I can’t think of any better way to make Black Friday a positive and helpful event!”

Sammy Bishop, founder of Paraffle Embroidery.
