How to Throw a Successful Craft Party for NCLSD


Yay, we are super excited it's time for round two!  Wow how time flies.  I'll be posting daily about this event and what you can do to help.  You can also read last year's article about NCLSD over at Pet360 or visit the Craft for Shelters tab on this blog.

Craft parties are so much fun and it always amazes me how many people join in when it's for a good cause.  Here are some things to think about when planning yours.

1.  Decide on a shelter (or two) to donate to - contact them and make sure they want to receive your donation.

2.  What will you make?  If you are not sure what to make, ask your shelter of choice what it is they could use the most - besides money and food of course.



3.  Supplies.  What materials will you need?  Utilize what you know you are great at and make sure your "game plan" is realistic.  Do you need a pattern?  How long does it take to make one of your items?  Etc.  If you decide on "adopt me" items like vests or bandanas, make them bright and eye-catching.  

4.  Set a date and organize a craft night with your crafty friends just for this project.

5. Create stations. For example, a few people can cut fabric while others sew pieces together.



6.  Don't forget the cats and other animals in shelters.  Cats could use bandanas for adoptable pictures and to help attract attention.



If you have questions or suggestions, leave a comment.  We'd love to hear from you!
