On May 21st, I’ll be participating in my first arts & crafts show, the “Spring Thing” put on by the D.C. Craft Mafia. I’ll join about 40 other artists and crafters outside St. Luke’s Episocopal Church in NW DC. St. Luke’s is on the corner of 15th & P, NW, a few blocks from Dupont Circle (or a few more blocks from Farragut North/West, if you feel like it).
After a few weeks of mad crocheting, I’ve finished all the Carethulhus for the R’lyief Sale. I made a total of 19 Carethulhus, some normal Weethulhus and some wee-sized versions of Chefthulhu, etc. In total, it raised $145 for the Red Cross’s Japan Fund and $67 for MSF ($212 total). I made the donations on the evening of April 12, with receipts below.
So good and bad and good news on the R’lyief Sale (initial details post). The good news is that the response has been great. At this point I’m anticipating at least $150 raised, allowing for a few people who won’t be able to pay their invoices until payday this Friday.
The bad news is that because the response was so good, I haven’t been able to crochet any extra WeeThulhus to put up for a general sale like I’d initially planned. I was going to put them up here, take pics, lets people claim them and donate, but that doesn’t look like it’ll pan out.
But the third side of the news sandwich is good news again—I still can make Cthulhus if people want to get in on the R’lyief Sale before it’s over. So here are the updated details:
This week, the week of March 23, 2011 (March 21st – March 26th), I’m having a sale on Cthulhus in my store, specifically those in the Ready to Ship area of my store (NOT the commissions). During this week, you can use the coupon code: RLYEH2011 to take 15% off any Cthulhu that’s already been made and is ready to ship.
