This April, Simply Socks Yarn Company is working with the Community Harvest Foodbank to raise money feed the hungry. Spring is a time of year when many don't think about hungry families- it's usualy during Thanksgiving and Christmas that we all consider those who might not have tables full of turkey and stuffing. So I'm organizing a Silent Auction at the store, allowing those who attend to bid on speical items donated by our favorite dyers, fiber companies, and designers.
If you were to attend a Silent Auction at a yarn store, what type of items would you be most interested in bidding on? Special colorways and fibers like the skein shown above? Perfectly paired patterns and skeins? Private classes for you and a group of friends? Handmade socks or mittens? Tell me what you would love to see and help us make this event a success!
If you're in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area, mark your calender for the afternoon of April 13 and help us show our support of Community Harvest Foodbank! If you aren't in the Fort Wayne area, I'm still trying to think of a way that our supportive knitters around the world can take part. If you have suggestions, please e-mail me those.
Many of the dyers we all know and love have already come on board- Madelinetosh, Shibui Knits, The Unique Sheep, just to name a few. So if you haven't received an e-mail from me about this event yet, and you'd like to contribute, please e-mail me because I definitely want to include everyone, but the response has so far kept me so busy that I haven't yet contacted everyone.
