The vision behind Cauzal Coffee had been stirring in founder Don Jacobson for over 25 years. A near-fatal accident in 1980 marked a turning point in his life. Since that time he has sought to align his business ventures with his passion to make a positive difference in the lives of others. As president of Multnomah Publishers, Don helped hundreds of authors bring more than 100 million faith-based books to readers through-out the world. In 2006, after selling Multnomah, he founded Cauzal Coffee, with the vision of helping people live generously and responsibly.*

Imagine if people all over the world mobilized to replace one billion standard incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs. What would that mean? It would mean that those people would save money each month on their electricity bill. It would mean they would save enough energy to light tens of millions of homes for a year. It would mean the prevention of greenhouse gases equivalent to the annual emissions of millions of cars.
This is a stitching site, near the bottom of the page is a listing for software. I believe you would buy it. I have the PCStitch program and while I havent made anything with it yet I have played around with it. There are even some links for UK.
