Calling All Crafters!

Knitting by tsuacctnt on flickr

The time has come again to ask all the crafty BookCrossers out there to get out their knitting needles and crochet hooks, paints and pastels, or whatever their preferred medium may be. We are asking for handmade contributions for attendee goodie bags.

Lsat year we had a great variety of items which were really well received by the attendees in Nottingham – everything from leather bookmarks to bead earrings and handwritten postcards to mini ballycumbers.  There’s something rather wonderful about opening your goodie bag to find a hand crafted item from another BookCrosser.

If you wish to contribute to this project please ensure you include your BookCrossing name on your item in some way so that the lucky recipient knows who to thank. If you are planning to take part please contact me (Chair – pingucb) using the Contact Us form or PM to pingucb. Alternatively simply comment on this post. I will need to know what you are planning to bring and roughly how many items you will be making – we won’t hold you to it but it helps us to plan and make sure no one misses out.

We will also need to receive your items in time for packing up the goodie bags on Friday afternoon. Let us know if you are not going to arrive by then and we can work out a way to get them to one of the committee in advance of the weekend.
