Title: Relay for Life
Details: This year I am going to be setting up a booth for Relay for Life. The idea is to raise money for cancer research. I am asking that you make an item(s) and mail it to me. All items are going to be sold at the event and any item that does not sell will be donated to Relay for Life. The event is taking place May 13th-14th.
When you donate an item please have the: a) size b) washing instructions c) material type (ex: cotton, acrylic etc) d) your shop name and any contact info you may want the person to have. You may also send your business cards or shop flyer with the item(s) so they can be passed out. Some people may want to visit your shop after the event. This is not only supporting a great cause but also doing a bit of free advertising for those who donate and for our team.
Speaking of teams; we are working with other teams on Etsy for this event. Crochet Dreamers is hosting the event but we are accepting items from others team as well. So far we have two other teams that will be participating with us. Prayers on a Wire Etsy Team and Crochet Originals Etsy Team. Both captains are members of our team and are extending the invitation to their teams. Already this is turning into a big event with three teams participating!
For those of you who decide to donate; I will also advertise your shop on our blog and facebook page as well as show the items that you have so generously donated towards the cause.

Theme: “Alice in Wonderland”

Details: I found myself looking for a Mad Hatter hat one day and couldn’t find one that was close to the actual thing.
