Calling all crafters! - 11/08/07 02:58 PM

I'm in charge of the conference raffle next year. I am seeking some skilled crafters that would be willing to make whatever their specialty is as a donation for the raffle. The funding goes to FIRST, the gift goes to an affected family, and you get a tax break for your efforts. Everyone wins!

At the moment, I am making some quilted tote bags. My mom is making some Vera Bradley-style purses, and my grandma is making a baby afghan for this event. I am hoping to get a quilt, maybe some doll clothes, stuffed critters like Raggedy Ann dolls or those stuffed country bunnies or bears, maybe something knitted, cross-stitched or sewn? Another idea - if anyone here makes cards, a selection of them would be nice. Any candle or soap makers here? Does anyone here make rock candy or chocolates? Please email me or post on the thread if you are willing to help.

The conference is next June 28-30th, in Chicago.

Hi Hearsay - I will be more than happy to volunteer and knit some funky scarfs, make precious stone jewelry, necklaces, bracelets and Swarovky crystal chandalier earrings as well and donate a better line of gold/diamond jewely from our store. We actually have a lovely set, necklace and bracelet - delicate butterly motif which I already have pulled for the Conference. Hope if we all get together, we can make this our BEST AND MOST SUCCESSFUL EVENT. Nana

Dear Jennifer,

I have asked my sister in law to knit some booties and 100% cotton babywash clothes for the raffle. Anything else that you can think of? Should i bring the crafts with me to the conference or will you want them sent ahead of time?

Can't wait.
Cheers
Tara

I am a card maker...and scrapbooker. I will whip up a few sets of butterfly cards for the raffle. How about 20 cards in a bundle with envelopes?
Cheers,
Sarah

Not too sure where the email ended up but I did get a letter from FIRST. I have a friend who is making some cards as well. When I know how many she is making I will post the info here. My cards are done and ready for the conference.

Cheers!

Sarah, you didn't get an email because I already had your info. I'll keep an eye out for your friend's info.

I haven't heard from my friend that she made the cards but mine are ready to go. Sorry about that.
