More on Haiti & Crochet Classes in SA
I keep meaning to post this, but haven’t yet had a chance! Through Feb. 15th, 2010, 50% of all proceeds from patterns purchased from my Ravelry and Etsy store will be donated to Doctors without Borders in Haiti. (So, if you’ve been meaning to try one of my patterns, now is the time to buy one! I’ll also donate 50% of proceeds from salesof anything in my etsy shop (a few remaining hats, a copy of my book, etc) as well. I’d like to clear out all of the inventory and stick to patterns, so head on over and see if there’s anything you’d like! If you’re reading this in a reader- come on over to the blog and you can see (and purchase) many of the patterns right there on the sidebar. If you’re interested in patterns, those purchased through Ravelry will yield a teensy bit more for Haiti (since I don’t pay listing fees–plus, you get to download them as soon as your payment goes through, and I don’t have to relist them each time) so that’s the preferred method if it’s patterns you’re after.
I also wanted to mention that I started working at Yarnivore, my LYS, a few months ago. For those of you who don’t know, working in a Yarn Shop is my sanity check (although working at home might sound glamorous, it makes me downright nutty from lack of social interaction!) It’s a great shop–and we just expanded– so if you’re ever in the San Antonio area, be sure to pop in! I’m offering crochet classes, too–check the store calendar to see what’s next. In February, I am offering Beginning Crochet, Intermediate Crochet (Creating Texture) and a Broomstick Lace Workshop (which is the technique I used to make the scarf above). If there’s something else you want to learn, I also do private lessons, at very reasonable rates, so check it out or just come by to say hello.
Have a great weekend!
