Pop Up Shop at Ornamentea this Sunday!

This Sunday, the monthly Pop Up Sunday will be SUPER cool, with some fantastic new vendors who’ve traveled the world, and some wonderful vintage designers, too!!
ANNNND…. I will be there, too!!  Hospice of Wake County (now known as Transitions Life Care) is the recipient for the fundraiser this month.  I will be helping with that by having a dye project you can do for a small donation of $1 – $3 each!!  In addition to that, I will have my Leopold Designs scarves for sale there!  20% of all of my scarf sales will go to Transitions Life Care!!!
Please read my blog about why Hospice means so much to me (from last year’s Pop Up Sunday).

ALSO!!!
There is still space open to take my Intro to Batik class at Ornamentea!!!  We’ve been having a TON of fun in that class, and I would love to see you in there, too!
If anyone wants to write up a testimonial, I’d love and appreciate it!!  Email me!

This Friday all you have to do is show up. Give $10 to charity, and get a local beer sampler and access to shop your local makers. It promises to be a mysterious and down home kind of night!

I’ll be there. Come say hello!
