WWKIPD Raffle Prizes- the Beginning.
Well, it is almost time for Worldwide Knit in Public Day again. It is actually observed for a week but we decided that we would organize a meetup on Saturday June 9th at Mill Creek Park in downtown Bakersfield. Here is the Facebook page if you are interested in signing up. In conjunction with the meetup we wanted to do something to give back to the community so we are raffling off an amazing collection of fibery goodness with 100% percent of the proceeds going to the local SPCA. To kick it off, take a gander at the awesomeness already donated.
Vickie of Tired Mommy Spinning has donated one of her hand spuns, a hand spun from Corgi Hill and one of the project bags from ruddawg with Brenda of ruddawg donating the other 2. Then there is a skein of Feza Alp Premier and 3 autographed books, 2 by Nicky Epstein and 1 by Cheryl Potter of Cherry Tree Hill. All raffle tickets are $2 and there will be many more prizes coming in, including handmade stitch markers, shawl pins and sticks, tools, kits, hand dyed yarns and rovings, a painting by local artist the Poet and so much more. Hope you can join us at this event and help support a local animal charity at the same time!
