A Brag

My piece just won BEST IN SHOW at the RAGS WEARABLE ART SHOW & SALE

The 15th annual RAGS Wearable Art Sale and Show will take place March 13-15 at Larson’s Mercedes-Benz, and money will go to benefit YWCA Pierce County’s domestic violence programs.

A total of 70 vendors will take over the auto dealership to show off and sell their handmade wearable items such as clothing, purses, jewelry and other accessories. Vendors agree to give a third of their proceeds to the YWCA. Last year the RAGS Guild, which organizes the show, passed $85,000 on to the organization. This year their goal is to raise $100,000.

Although the larger part of the event has 70 vendors, there is also a gallery portion. I entered 2 pieces in the gallery this year. It is one of the few venues I continue to support. It certainly paid off.

This entire weaving is chronicled on this web log. I only have one post here, but it will give you an idea.
