Saving the day…with crafts!

I’m in!!!!!

Craft Emergency banner

I just found out that Fat Orange Cat (a.k.a. ME!) will be a vendor in Craft Emergency, a craft show in St. Petersburg that supports the local Red Cross. This is my very first craft show, and I’m super excited and more than a little concerned about how I’m going to get everything done by June 1.

The show’s tagline is “Saving the day…with crafts!” I love that.

So if you’re in the St. Petersburg/Tampa/Sarasota area, please come out to the show and say hi to me! I’ll have an indoor booth, and I’ll have Fat Orange Cat signage so you can’t miss me.

Now begins 17 days of pure craziness and a whole lotta sewing. In fact, I’m skipping American Idol tonight so I can get some sewing done, which just proves how serious I am about this. I mean, really. American Idol.

Wish me luck!

    Karyn – that’s great! I know you’ll get some beautiful items made in time. And FYI, it’s David vs. David on Idol.

    Good for you! Be sure to post on “the good, the bad, and the ugly” when it all said and done. I’ve thought about participating in a fair but have been too afraid. I’d love the hear a real story of a first timer.

    Good luck! I love that advertisment. I bet you’ll get tons of shoppers and lots of sales. You go girl!
