Give-A-Way Day!!

Today was the big sock summit registration. I registered for the luminary panel. I'm really hoping that I'll be alive to attend. It's the 'closing ceremonies' for the event, but I'm a little concerned that I'll want to crawl under my table and sleep! I have to say that registering made me feel excited and like I was apart of a big moment. I was struggling with thousands of other people to register!!

I had a fabulous photo shoot on Sunday, thanks to auntie for baby sitting! Here's a little preview of what's going in the shop, hopefully everything will be up on Sunday, May 31st.


I think I should also add something to the prize basket today! For every $5 that is donated to Taking Steps your name will be entered to win some fabulous prizes. So far there is a skein of handspun yarn, and fingering weight yarn. Lovely Deb Accuardi has donated June's issue of her newsletter with a skein of yarn to knit the included pattern. I love her newsletter! I'm one of the dyer's coming up even. Deb has some amazing things going on: a few retreats in the works, a sock/lunch club, a pre sock summit lunch, a pod cast and a blog. I'm tired thinking of all that work!! I'm lucky to be attending the pre sock summit lunch and getting to dye yarn to accompany one of the courses!! Being a part of this fundraiser is very timely for our family. E has been experiencing a lot of symptoms of his crohn's disease.

So on to the give a way! If you're new and you stuck around for this, thanks! Leave me a comment about your favorite charity and how you like to fundraise/volunteer/assist them. Thanks again for participating in Sew Mama Sew's fun day!
You have until May 31st to comment and then I will pick the winner and ship off the prize! So the give a way is...A little treat I've sewed and some handspun yarn.

If you don't knit and you win that prize we'll come up with something different!

  2. My favorite charities are animal charities. Until we left Colorado, they were the Denver Dumb Friends League (www.ddfl.org) and the Boulder Valley Humane Society. I think my most successful fundraising was when I ran my first 5K - my co-workers were so amazed that I would actually run, they generously pledged, then the company matched most of their donations!

  3. I LOVE Project Linus and average about 1 quilt every 2 months for them. But I also like the Great American Bake Sale, I make homemade dog treats for my local sale every year and they always sell out!

  4. For reasons of family history, I really like Heart & Stroke, and the Alzheimer's Society. I'm new to quilting, but my plan is to make some knee warmers for Alzheimer's patients - a great way for me to learn to sew straight, and to make a difference.

  5. The charity that is close to my heart is the Juvenile Diabetic Research Fund. I lost my only brother to the disease. I usually get the kit for walking the neighborhood for donations. Many thanks, Cindi

  12. Hello fellow PDXer! My favorite charity is Project Linus and my '09 resolution was to make one quilt a month for them.

    I do not knit but my other resolution was to learn how. I would definitely be motivated by that lovely yarn.

    Cheers!

  25. I don't really have a favourite charity - I like to support several different types of causes - but the one I donate to most often is probably my local food bank. Whenever I go grocery shopping and something I normally buy is on sale, I'll put the money I'm saving toward buying something for the food bank (two-for-one sales make this really easy sometimes).

    ReplyDelete
  26. My favorite charity is the Salvation Army. I support them through donations and shopping at their Thrift Stores. And they support my crafting habit!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I started a local (informal) chapter of The Linus Project at my church- we make quilts for children who are sick or traumatized.

    Great giveaway! The yarns are beautiful.

  34. A few years ago I worked on the production of a CD to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis association of America - an awesome project and a huge learning experience.

    Two very easy ways to get involved are these: buy your online books from Better World Books (betterworldbooks.com) - used books, with some of the proceeds of each going to different literacy charities, and free shipping in the US! The other is using goodsearch.com as your search engine - your earn about 1 cent per search for your designated charity, which doesn't sound like a lot, but if you have it set as your default search engine, it adds up fast.

  35. I like Newborns in Need. Thanks. mbabecka@hotmail.com

  36. My favorite charity is- American Lung Association.
    I am a respiratory therapist, and have donated many hours to being a camp counselor for asthma camps.

  38. Once a month we fast for 2 meals and give the money that we would have spent on food to our church to redistribute to those in need(it's a specific fund that goes to those in need and not to the function of the church). I also love supporting the charity based thrift stores through donations and shopping trips.

    Awesome giveaway!

  46. beautiful yarn!!

    I volunteer at the Boulder Humane Society.... I love to see the animals find good homes, and I think they're a pretty decent organization. They take in animals from many different states, and they are well looked after in a beautiful facility. I love that they don't discriminate by animal's age... I've seen 20 year old cats listed up for adoption on their website for months!!

  47. My favorite charity is Rock and Roll Camp for Girls http://www.girlsrockcamp.org/

  59. glad to have found such a beautiful site and lucious yarn. I look forward to peeking at future posts.
    A favorite organization here is Sisters of the Road. I have donated paintings to them in the past for their auctions. They also have a great way to help by buying food coupons people can use at their cafe. It's a great way to help folks and keep their organization going.

    ReplyDelete
  62. The Cancer Society has a fundraiser where the participants raise money and shave their hair. I've participated twice and I like that it not only raises funds, but also raises awareness. Kids would stare at me cuz I was a girl, but had no hair, but if they see that and parents talk about it, they might not stare so much at someone who's lost their hair because of chemo.

  85. My favourite charity is the "Dresses for Grads" charity that we have here in Winnipeg. I sew a lot of grad/formal wear for people every year and I always encourage them to donate their dresses (especially if they are bridesmaid dresses they will only wear once). That way, girls who couldn't otherwise afford a special grad dress have a chance to be belle of the ball on their special day!

    ReplyDelete
  86. My favourite charity is TEAR - We like to purchase Christmas gifts from their "World's most useful gift catalogue" where giftees receive a card with details of a contribution to a third world community on their behalf, like school supplies, vege gardens, goats, water pumps, etc. It's good for reducing the clutter of unwanted/not needed gifts, and helps keep giving and receiving in perspective!

  90. My father works with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and while I cannot plant and harvest a field of grain like most of the donators, I do help him with the administration/secretarial side of things. The great thing about the CFGB is that the Canadian government matches all donations four to one so all grain or money donated makes a huge difference.

  91. I dont know if its considered a charity or not, but I do a lot of volunteering with our local animal shelter. We specifically foster orphaned animals - mostly cats. We usually get them when they are 3-4 weeks old and I get up and do the midnight feedings (and sometimes a 3 am feeding too if they're really young).

    Its really rewarding to watch the little guys grow and so hard to let them go to new homes. I love each and every one and am always so proud to hear from their new families and see pictures of how much they've grown.

  92. My favorite charity is a private local home that helps unwed pregnant teens with a safe place to live, job skills training and other necessities.

After 5years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with kids .I felt like my life was about to end and I almost committed suicide, I was emotionally down for a very long time.Thanks to a spell caster called dr. ovia, which I meet online, On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet and I came across a lot of testimonies about this particular spell caster.Some people testified that he brought their Ex boyfriend back, some testified that he restores Womb,Cure Cancer and Herpes Virus and HIV Cure,diabitis hapatitis b, and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. I also come across one particular testimony and it was about a woman called jenni, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr. ovia email address: droviaspiritualtemple@gmail.com After reading all these,I decided to give it a try and I contacted him through his via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48 hours, my husband came back to me, and we solved our issues, we are even happier than before Dr. ovia is really a gifted man and I will not stop testifying him because he is a wonderful man and so powerful, If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems. contact him on this email:droviaspiritualtemple@gmail.com or call +2348135858735
    GOODLUCK..
