Craft for a Cure Registration is open!

{Julie Gordon Weller}

For the last 6 years I have done a crafting event and donated all of the proceeds to Breast cancer research. My Mom is now a 7 year survivor and I know it's hard to find anyone who's lives have not been touched by it in one way or another. Currently a member of my little crafting community is battling the disease. Julie Gordon Weller is not only kicking cancers ass, but is doing so in such an open and honest way, including taking a daily portrait of herself as she goes through chemo. You can see it all on her Facebook page HERE or just search her hashtag #cancerisstupid.  This years event "Sweet Sisterhood" will once again be in the lovely home of Andrea Villareal in Rancho Cucamonga California with food provided by Redlands Ford. We will have two classes. We will be making Karin Smolinskis lovely plaster cupcakes, a little Fabric Collage dress by Denise Hahn, and a surprise make and take project from Jennifer Priest of Hydrangea Hippo. Lunch and dessert will be served. The teachers and hostesses donate everything for the event so you entire class fee goes to help support breast cancer research. Please see below for class photos and past event pictures.


Class #1 Vintage Fabric Collage Dress. We will do everything from wire the little hanger to doing the image transfer. This is NOT A KIT and you will get to design your little dress however you want! Supplies and machines will be provided but feel free to bring any extra lace buttons or bling to make it your own! Don't sew?? Don't worry! We will have hot glue and fabritac for you- but the sewing is reallly easy!

Fun and Easy Back to School Teacher Gift

One of the things I love about designing for Petaloo (besides getting oodles of gorgeous flowers), is the chance to work with all different craft companies. I love thinking outside the "vintage" box and doing something completely new! So check out my Petaloo and Simple Stories Upcycled Cork Trivet Back to School project on Petaloos Blog HERE
