Ovarian Fundraiser

Local merchant Needle Nook will be hosting a second annual fundraiser and sidewalk event this Saturday the 18th from 2-6 PM. Needle Nook has invited local artisans to set up tables on the sidewalk, with 15% of sales donated to ovarian cancer research. This year at least 18 vendors will have their beautiful handmade goodies for sale. Additionally, there will be a silent auction, a raffle, and a bake sale. There will also be a Tarot card reader and a spinning demo. For just $5, you can buy a chance on this beautiful shawl, knit by Shirley Robb. What a generous donation of time and talent! (I believe that is Marsha behind the shawl.)

At the April guild meeting, Arlene showed off a beautiful yarn bowl, made and donated by the Knit Witch. If you want to see more, you can follow these links to photographs of some of the beautiful jewelry, colorful quilting, baskets, and woodwork that will be offered this Saturday.
