Through September 1st, $1 of every pattern and ebook I sell will go to The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research via Kim Werker’s Pancreatic Craftacular. Kim is doing all she can to raise $2500 by Sept 12th, and a bunch of other designers, yarn makers, and crafters are helping out, so check out the Craftacular page to see all the stuff you can buy to help, or to straight up donate to the cause.
If you’ve been thinking about grabbing any (or many!) of my patterns, now’s the time to go for it!
A sort-of-related heads up – I’m currently working on redesigns of all my old patterns, so that they all have the same pdf format and stuff, and I will be raising prices of at least one, maybe more, patterns once all the layout design redoing is done. If you want 10 cuff patterns, grab it now for $4.50 while you still can!
In other news… remember back last fall when a bunch of Portland crafters were all trying to raise awareness about our most favorite local craft thrift store, Knittn’ Kitten? And alllll of you non-Portlanders were saying things like “I wish I could go to Portland and check it out” etc etc… Well, I am so happy to tell you all that the Kitten has opened up an etsy shop!! It’s not exactly like shopping in the store, but it’s pretty darn awesome, full of vintagey crafty goodness! Yay!!!!
And one more thing you must know about! Croq zine has a Kickstarter going on so that we can all help get a new issue published! I super love Croq, have all the issues, and am way excited to see another one being made! But, it will only get made if we help, by essentially pre-ordering our copies through Kickstarter. Once creator Heather has enough “backers” to afford printing a run of zines, the issue will get made, and all of us who helped out will receive our copies!
Of course, you can pledge more than the cost of an issue ($5) if you can swing it – a $25 pledge will get you some homemade vegan lip balm, made with Heather’s own amazingly delicious recipe! Kickstarter is such a cool way to get a project off the ground – back Croq today, get your issue when it’s released, everyone wins, and we all help awesome things happen!! Yeah!
