Sew Some Love Sunday - Stay PAWsitive

Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!  This time... it's on a Monday.  Oops!!

Another week, another way for YOU to contribute.  Read on, if you would like to know more.

Let's Make Art!
Stay PAWsitive
Pt. 2

Here are the main points:

There is going to be an Art Fundraiser at Craft Napa to benefit Wags and Whiskers in Chico, California, along with other organizations who are helping displaced families, their livestock, and pets.

Money is needed more than anything else.  As quilters and artists, we like to help people.  Craft Napa is only about 100 miles from Paradise, California.  You have probably heard about the devastation there, haven't you?

All YOU have to do is make and donate a 4 x 6" fabric or mixed-media postcards.  Use ANY material and ANY theme.  Each postcard will be sold for $20 and ALL of the proceeds will go to charities to benefit Northern CA fire victims.

Postcards should be received by Friday, January 7, 2019!!

These are the details from Pokey Bolton:

The Stay Pawsitive! Pt 2 Art Fundraiser 
How to participate:
  1. Make 1 or 2 (or 3, 4 or more) 4″ x 6″ fabric or mixed-media postcards where all proceeds will go to Wags and Whiskers and also to other organizations helping displaced families, their livestock, and pets. These pieces of art can be made of fabric or paper, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, quilts and stitch, metal, recycled bits, or even a combination of all the above.
  2. Think theme! We are open to any theme for the artwork: they could be animals or fantasy creatures (unicorns anyone?), abstract works, depictions of dreamy landscapes and escapes, floral-themed pieces, mini modern quilts, graffiti-inspired work, or whatever your imagination dreams up! (Please, however, be mindful of copyright laws and create original art.)
  3. These works do not need to be bound or mounted. Ideally we want to fit these works of art into 4″ x 6″ slim plastic casings for display, but if your work is thicker and won’t fit, we still welcome it!
  4. On the back side of your artwork, please sign your name, title, and leave your social media info (i.e. website, blog, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest handle). Contact information is optional.
  5. We will sell the 4″ x 6″ pieces for $20 each at Craft Napa 2019, all of the proceeds will go to charities, including Wags and Whiskers to benefit fire victims.
  6. The art should be received no later than Friday, January 7th, 2019. Please note: this is a receive-by date! We will of course accept artwork during Craft Napa but want to have a large starting bank of artwork so would love it if you mailed them far in advance!
  7. You can mail as many pieces of art as you would like, but please place them in a padded envelope. This way they will stay in pristine condition to be displayed at Craft Napa.

Please mail them to:
Crafting a Life
Attn: Stay Pawsitive!
PO BOX 10368
Napa, CA
  1. Come to Craft Napa to buy as many pieces as you are able! Just think: if you bought four (or more) and had them framed, it would make for a very nice collection!
As soon as we start receiving artwork, we will post examples online and in social media channels.
There will also be a silent auction, and we will try and make this part of the fundraiser open online, too, during live updates on Facebook.
We hope you will get creating!

The take away:

This is another one of those things that I pass along, just in case the cause speaks to you.  I am a member of a local Art Bee.  The friend who passed along this information to me (Thanks, Jean!) was a past member of that group, but is a member of my current Quilt Bee, as well.  She plans to participate in the Art Fundraiser.  Will YOU?

Until next time...
BEE informed!!!
