Tomorrow I’ll be driving north to spend Thanksgiving with family and participate in the Celebration of Craftswomen, a fund-raising event for The Women’s Building in San Francisco, which is the first women-owned community center in the U.S. Funds raised at the Celebration of Craftswomen support the work of this multi-cultural community center where women and girls achieve self-sufficiency and pursue their dreams.

If you are in the Bay Area this weekend come by my temporary domicile, booth 621! This digi postcard gives you a dollar off admission.
