so I wanted to share some really great news with everyone!
The Makerie, the workshop that I am teaching at in Boulder, Colorado, in April is giving away a spot for one lucky person. Here is the information, from Ali, the Makerie founder!
"We are elated to announce the very first ever Makerie Scholarship! Old Glory Antiques and Common Threads are generously teaming up to offer one full Makerie package (excluding any travel costs) for the 2011 event. For the next two weeks, we are inviting nominations for a very special someone who would embrace the spirit of the Makerie! Do you know someone who is deserving of a creative weekend away, but maybe is unable to make the financial commitment at this time? The eligibility requirements to enter are simple (read none!), as we will work off the honor system here! All we ask is that you write us a letter via email detailing why this person would be a beautiful fit for the scholarship and what attending the Makerie would mean to them. (And YES, feel free to nominate yourself!) Please know that all entries will be kept confidential, and be sure to include your contact information."
Scholarship Application Process:
Thurs, Jan 27 Email all nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thurs, Feb 10 LAST DAY for nominations!
Mon, Feb 14 Scholarship winner notified! Yippee!!
Also, if there are any companies out there who would want to sponsor or contribute to another spot to a deserving peep, please contact me, or you can contact Ali directly.
Who of my peeps will I see in Boulder in just 2 short months?
Also, who will I see in Portland?
And who will I see at Squam?
strike offs tomorrow, because UPS hates my life.
