Thank you Ambassador Hotel

A big Thank You to the Erika Bradley and the Ambassador Hotel for offering to host our next Crafters for Critters meeting.  We are all set for August 26th 7-9pm.   I'm expecting 12 members at the table.  See you all then.  Meanwhile, keep crafting!

Success at the Sheep Dog Trials

That's me behind the table of crafts.  The crafters have worked hard and the table was overflowing.

Jennifer was there to help at the booth Saturday and Sunday, she's hiding in the background.

The kitty tents (in front of the table) sold well.  Some were donated by Mary and some sewed by Brenda.

Meagan manned the KHS booth for most of the weekend, along with several other volunteers.  She was helpful with the craft table too.

 Some more photos of our crafts:       

 Lovely soft pet bed make by Brenda
 Bloodshot eyeballs with optic nerve attached.  Filled with catnip.  A fun, albeit gruesome, toy for the kitties.

 These little lambs were very popular.  They are knitted and felted, with a removable coat.
 Dog wear knit by Linda.

 Just a few of our many dog bandanas.  Monika has been helping with the sewing.

Kari and Monika making greeting cards.
Our cards are fantastic and sell extremely well.

I hope to have some more pictures up soon!

Sheep Dog Trials this coming weekend

Visit Crafters for Critters at the Kingston Humane Society booth this weekend, Friday Aug 6, to Sunday Aug 8 at Grass Creek Park, Kingston Ontario.

If you are just discovering Crafters for Critters, we are an all volunteer group of crafters who donate our time and talents to raising funds for the Kingston Humane Society.  We make things for the animals at the shelter as well as selling our many varied crafts.  If you would like to be a part of our team, email me at

Yard sale a success

The yard sale was a success.  The weather was perfect.  Here are a few pictures from the day.
Linda working on her knitting while manning the KHS and craft tables.
 Some of the yummies I baked: squares, cupcakes, cookies, and apple pies.
