Felt Club Holiday 2008!

(with apologies for the photos - I decided to return the Canon G10, sad me, and my digi elph is on its last legs.)

What a fun time we had at Felt Club! We arrived at 9:45am, in time to receive a gift bag (for the first 250 people). Anatomy of a Gift Bag revealed below.

Ran into the following lovely friends and friends of friends: Feanna from Kait Emerson (with a new swoony Spring 2009 line for the little ones!), Bethany from m*o*m (with her awesome Mom, Tere), Rebecca Hahn, who does amazing multilayered illustrations, and Courtney bought some cute finger puppets from Robert of the super Mahar Dry Goods. I was hoping to get a picture with the ever-dapper Charles Phoenix, wearing a delicious red-and-white-striped suit with a sparkly green necktie, but my camera battery was dying.

We danced to Leslie Hall, wearing an amazing gold spandex suit with neon green and pink fringed epaulettes. She has a great time doing high kicks and kicking out the jams, while directing her stand-in dj at the laptop to "Press Play!" before every song. She also paints gorgeous paintings, like these. Two-year-olds danced and screamed for DJ Lance Rock, who was going incognito sans the orange track suit. I splurged at new shop, Good Friday

and we made our own charm bracelets with Kaari of French General, here in Hollywood!

And these were the gifties in the bag:


1.) Felting Wool from Beemiceelf
2.) Rose Earrings and a little gifty bag from Oh, Hello Friend
3.) A cute pin from Pretty Little Thieves
4.) A magnet from The Mincing Mockingbird
5.) Vital Organs embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching
6.) An origami pin from Feisty Elle
7.) An octopus silhouette card from Frantic Meerkat
8.) Knitting Yarns and Spinning Tales : a knitter's stash of wit and wisdom / Kari Cornwell, editor
9.) Picture perfect knits : step-by-step intarsia with more than 75 inspiring patterns / by Laura Birek, photographs by Sheri Giblin.
10.) ReadyMade

Thank you! How lovely to receive these little presents!

O, We had fun at Felt Club!

Remember to shop small and local this holiday season - your craftastic friends will thank you!
