Crocheted items you get hooked on!
A night of fashion, glamour, music, dancing and giving: Glam it Up! What could be better? This annual fundraiser for Women4Women is a must-go-to on my calendar each year, however I’m going to miss it this year. It’s a shame really, but I have the privilege of participating in a small way. My newest HookedbyZanne accessory will be on the auction table, ready for some bids. Made with upcycled yarn and extra fabric from a set of curtains I made this funky reversible hand bag is set to be a hot item. Valued at $50, I’m hoping this glamourous gem will bring in a fair donation for a great cause.
Women4Women is a weekly drop-in centre that provides women of the Queenston area with a safe place they can call their own. The centre fosters a non-judgmental environment that accepts women exactly the way they are, and provides a space for them to meet friends from the past and new friends for the future. Women4Women offers practical services and resources such as a clothes closet, hair cuts, the Plentiful Pantry offering small portioned food items at a suggested low donation, life-skills workshops and sharing circles, all for no cost. This amazing organization is a hub in the St. Catharines downtown community, and I am thrilled to give back in this smallest of ways.
If you are in the area, come and place your bid!
