2  UNITED STATES / Pennsylvania / Re: What kind of businesses/companies do I send sponsorship letters to? please h on: January 22, 2006 09:23:58 PM
Hey there, congrats on being picked!  I was a ptp student ambassador too!   To raise money I first asked my church but  if you go to buisnesses in your area (hardware stores,craft stores,anything that's independently owned maybe even banks) walmarts and kmarts and even fast food places also may want to help out.  Take a look around you and the stores in your area and pretty much try everywhere you can (you'd be surprised who's willing to help you).   Ask to talk to the owner about your trip give them your info on people to people and how most rely on their community to sponsor their trip.  This way they have a face and something in their hands to look at if they say they need to think about it.  A lot of local buisnesses are happy to help kids out.  Also, try making more card packs or other crafty things (change purses, felt pins) or have some people help you crochet washcloths (they seem to be a big seller and are cheap to make) and hit up the neighborhoods.  It's hard to say no to a kid who's standing at your door and selling handmade goods to fund something like this, it's also good to let them know how much this will cost and not have a set price and just ask for a donation, that way people don't feel pressured to give you a certain amount and some will likely give you more than you may have asked for.  Also remember to have info to give them so they know what they're donating for. You may also want to ask local buisnesses if you could leave some information and items in your their store and offer them a small percentage of the sales (here you could charge more since buyers will have time to think about the price).   People also love to hear about how your trip went, I offered to give a speech when I came back as a thank you for my church's help and sent some pictures, postcards or very small souveniers to others  if there's not too many people involved.  Basically talk to as many people as you can about your trip (even your parent's friends) you never know who might give you at least something to help out with the costs.  Good luck!/.

does it matter if you're as far away as altoona? We're planning on moving closer to pittsburgh when our lease is up so I'd love to start getting involved there (we already go out multiple times a month for other things), I also have a few other crafty friends  in a similar situation.  This topic was posted a few months ago, has anything happened with it?

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for but Andrea Deszo might work.   She embroiders and is inspired by her country's wall-hangings found in kitchens that had sayings dealing with daily life like gossip and cheating husbands or praising good housekeeping skills.  She worked on a series of her own exploring old wives tales and superstitions of past generations and how she interprets them.

Stumbled upon this and thoroughly enjoyed your response, also like your stencil of Rice.

I just finished a bunch of these and put them up on my etsy shop(cleodee.etsy.com), my husband did the designs for these two.  I've pinned some to bags and have had some compliments, what do you think?  Think you'd use them?

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Beaded flower bouquets on: January 31, 2005 02:42:20 PM
first, those are gorgeous!  I was thinking of stealing the idea as well for my wedding, I'm looking for ways to make  the day more personal for us and wanted to make something for my bridesmaids and maid of honor.  I was looking on the shipwreck site and was wondering what size beads you used in yours and if they were one there, I don't really have any good bead shops in my area so I'll either have to order offline or drive a few hours to get to one. 
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / first project on: January 24, 2005 12:43:18 PM
I taught myself embroidery this summer for my independent study in fibers in the fall.  I just now got around to putting anything up or ever posting on here although I love to see everyone's work!  This was a memorial for my cousin who od'd last year (hence the skulls and needles)
here's a detail of one of the hummingbirds:
