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!
