Birds of a Feather Fair

In Small Spectacles was a featured artist gearing up for the 1st Birds of a Feather Fair, so click on over to check it out.  I met Leslie, one of the founders of the Birds of a Feather Fair, at a craft show last Fall and she was looking for unique crafters to include in this new juried show she and the other co-founder, Misty, were putting together.  As they state so well, their show "...isn't your usual church craft show :)  No crocheted toilet paper holders allowed!"  Love it!  The BFF blog is featuring a different show artist every day, so as you can see if you head over there what they have put together will not disappoint!

All proceeds for the BFF will go to The Women’s Crisis Center located in Hebron, Kentucky.   A small admission fee of $2.00 will be charged.  Leslie and Misty's goal is to "...provide the Women’s Shelter with a substantial check to allow them to use the proceeds as they see fit to help with their operations. We will also take a portion of our proceeds to supply the Women’s Shelter with craft supplies (crayons, coloring books, craft kits, scissors, glue, glitter, etc.) for the children that often are with their mothers at the Shelter. We feel that through providing the children with stimulating activities that it will help in some small way
lessen the burden on their mothers and on their circumstances surrounding their stay at the
Women’s Shelter.

A representative from the Women’s Shelter will be in attendance the day of the Fair and will have information about the Shelter or information for those in need.  If you would like to participate by supplying craft items, please bring them with you the day of the show and we will gladly send the item with the representative from the Women’s Shelter."

I'm looking forward to this new show, I hope you are too!
