And here we are at week two of the Yarn Contest and Fundraiser for our chorus, Olympia Choral Society.
We're going to Carnegie Hall in May of 2010 !! Woo Hoo!!
So far, $130 has been donated. Thank you to all!
Here are some more prizes that will be gifted at the end of the contest on May 26, 2009:

From my stash - a brand new handmade Jenkins Turkish Drop spindle hand made from Cocobolo Wood, by Ed Jenkins.
Some more cool spinning fiber from my stash
hand dyed by WoolGatherings, 9 ounces Corriedale top
from my stash:
2 skeins Koigu Merino wool sock yarn
And I made a small oops in that first post, and incorrectly listed my friend Cheryl's business as "Bunny Patch... nope, it is New Hue Handspuns. (the link was correct in the first post, but I mixed up the name.. sorry, my friend)
So here's how the contest works: For every $10 donated to this wonderful tax deductible organization (Olympia Choral Society) you will receive one chance at winning one of the many prizes. Check out photo album for this contest at the top right of my blog.
To leave a donation, just comment below, and I will send you the address as to where to mail it.
A couple people wrote and asked me about Paypal.... yet at this time, I'm not able to do that. (sorry folks)... but, checks via snail mail will work out fabulously! No amount is too small (nor too large for that matter). Our chorus is focused on raising about $150,000. And to read more about this fundraiser, hop on back to
this post in which I wrote about the whole story. All donations are tax deductible.
