Close to Home

The past week's theme for me has been "close to home", and so I thought I'd use this week's blog post to celebrate all of the local events that are brewing in Kata Golda's world.


As you all know I launched a Valentine's Day campaign in January with Spoon Foundation, a non-profit organization in Portland, Oregon whose mission is to improve the health of international orphans and adoptees by providing them with the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. From now until 2/10/11, I am donating 50% of the profits from all Valentine items sold on to Spoon. READ FULL STORY

A friend who stopped by my studio asked which items are turning out to be most popular. The Valentine's Day stuffed companion bear (shown below) is always a big hit, as I can easily personalize it with a child's name. But as shown by the growing stack on my work table, my folded Valentine cards (shown above), which are adorned with hand-stitched wool felt, are just as popular — especially if budget is a concern.

Thank you to all that have supported this campaign so far with their purchases, and to those that have helped spread the word. We still have 2 weeks to go, but the ordering deadlines are drawing near and the campaign is need of a boost:
  • Help spread the word by sharing my Facebook posts
  • Keep the buzz alive and re-Tweet announcements
  • Please consider one of my handmade felt Valentine items when choosing your gifts this year. Half of the profits from your item go directly to Spoon! VIEW ITEMS


Speaking of Portland, Modern Domestic has invited me back to teach more felt sewing workshops this Spring! Registration for the classes are not yet open, but I can tell you that they will happen in early April and will include cute spring-themed projects.


Closer to home, a spontaneous visit to Seattle's Marigold & Mint recently resulted in a very pleasant outcome, and I'm pleased to announce that you will soon be able to find Kata Golda items in this charming organic flower and gift shop on Capitol Hill. I'll have more details to share in the coming weeks.
