our AWESOME bird's nest chair

Well, we've completed our chair and have turned it over to the Care for Kids foundation for their silent auction. Big thanks to all who came out to the Harrison Center on Feb. 8 to help us work on the project. It turned out wonderfully. We used an old Papasan chair and went with a bird's nest theme, complete with giant bird and eggs. The finished piece is really quite amazing. And comfy. We let Allison's daughter, Harper, give it a test run and she didn't seem to have any complaints.

All individual artists or groups who donated to the silent auction will receive two tickets to the event. We will give the two we receive for our group to any of the folks who worked on the chair, and who are willing to attend the event to represent the Indy Craft Mafia. First come, first served.

If anyone else would like to purchase tickets to attend the charity event, the information is below. Please come to check out our chair, as well as to see our competition.

***If you cannot attend the event, the Care for Kids Foundation will be bringing our chair, and a couple others, to Allison's studio at the Harrison Center for the First Friday gallery event on March 6. They will be selling tickets and handing out info for their organization, and Indy Craft Mafia members are welcome to stop by and hang out for a bit. Bring your knitting or crochet projects and sit and chat with us for a while. Allison's studio is downstairs, near The Underground. We will be talking to anyone who expresses interest about what the Indy Craft Mafia has done, what we would like to do, and who is in our group. We'd love to see you all there!***
