Work, holidays, work, circus, work, sick, work, and the world. I know I don't post here a lot; it's a hard habit to keep when I'm also juggling a work blog and a new business and a life.

But! I have things to say now! In particular, I need to talk about the Arisia charity raffle.

Arisia is coming up pretty soon now; we're only a little more than a month out. And the convention is graciously allowing me to run a charity raffle this year, to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association in honor and memory of Sir Terry Pratchett.

So far, I've managed to put together a pretty impressive handful of prizes, but there's always space for more. Our last raffle raised about $4000; I'm really hoping to beat that number this year.

I know that the world is scary and harsh right now, and I know everyone has a lot on their plate. But please - if you're a crafter, or an artist, or a writer, or a maker of things, or a worker in any sort of interesting field - if you can find the time and energy to donate, we need prizes.

Let me know, and I can tell you where to send your donations (or pick them up from you if you're local). And if you have any questions I can do my best to answer them. Help me fight the dark and remember that people have the power for great goodness, no matter what else is going on in the world....

I am working on those crochet fingerless gloves for the raffle. I need to know where to send them.

Thank you so much! You can just bring them to the con; that would probably be easiest....

I believe when you mentioned this last time I offered a knit-to-order hat or fingerless mitts type of deal. Do you think that's okay, or would an already-made donation be better? I can easily make something in that timeframe.

Already-made donations would be great - unfortunately, we can only offer gift certificates from existing businesses. But I would be incredibly grateful for anything you'd care to make, and thank you!

She has something but this week has been fraught (as you can probably tell). I will at very least mail mine at the beginning of next week, Priority Mail.

If you can accept food I have a chunk of rainbow fudge. Let me weigh and photograph it and give you the info (including ingredients and allergens).

Unfortunately, we can only accept food made by commercial businesses; sorry. :( But thank you for the thought!

I can give you a gift certificate for lessons at my school.

I have this shawlette I'm working on that's not going to be done UNTIL Arisia. Can I get it to you the Friday of Arisia or is that too late?

No problem at all, and thank you for making something! You can absolutely deliver it at the con; we'll be set up by the escalators just outside the dealer's room. :)

Ok! I think I'm going to hand it to my housemate to deliver to you, but if she's unable to do it on Friday I'll drive it in.
