The Whole Knit & Caboodle

Barely coherent ramblings of a yarn-obsessed stay at home mom

Pattern Sale/Fundraiser

on March 8, 2013

A lady on my street had her vehicle broken into last night.  The thief made off with a backpack that was in the van and left her with the expense of replacing her window and the University library books that were in the backpack (which are not cheap to replace).

It’s sad that this happened to such a sweet lady.  She’s got two young boys and her husband is currently between jobs.  Like me she has a small business- she knits and sells her items from home but because she works outside of the home as well, she doesn’t have as much time as she’d like to be knitting items to sell.

You might think we would see each other as competition but it’s not the case.  She’s bought items from me and has also sent customers my way.  I actually bought something from her today.

To help her out I’m having a BOGO sale on all the patterns in my Ravelry store, the proceeds going toward replacing the broken window in her van.  No coupon codes needed, discounts will show up at checkout.  The sale will run until the end of the day on Saturday (Pacific time).

Please head on over to my Ravelry store if you’re interested in picking up some super cute patterns for a really good cause.  If you’re not in the market for new patterns or if you’re not a crocheter and would still like to help, please share and help get the word out.   It doesn’t cost anything and you could help a very sweet person who is having a hard go.

Thanks ❤
