50% of pattern sales to Pancreatic Cancer Research

50% of pattern sales donated to pancreatic cancer research

From now through September 11, 2010 Fiddle Knits Designs will be donating 50% of all pattern sales to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Research (via Kim Werker). The portion raised by Fiddle Knits will be donated through Kim Werker to be included in her "Pancreatic Craftacular" event with the goal of raising $2,500 by September 12.

On September 12, 2010, Miss Werker's family will be participating in a large fundraiser to support the Lustgarten Foundation. 100% of the raised funds will go directly into research to fight this disease.

Patterns can be purchased through my Website ( or via my Ravelry shop.

Besides Fiddle Knits, many other crafty people are pulling together to join Kim Werker's Pancreatic Craftacular event. You can see the full list of those donating portions of their sales by visiting:

Sounds like an excellent way to handle it.

I'm thinking that what I will end up doing is creating a group for each of the KALs I'm running (Pretty Polly and the Frosting shawlette). I'll post in my main Rav group that I'm doing that and direct everyone to the proper place. This way multiple threads can be running for each design without people confusing what thread goes to which design. Hopefully it will be the simplest, most concise way to organize it. I'm opening sign ups on Sunday, August 1. :o)

I lost my grandmother a year ago next month to this awful disease, so I'm truly touched that you are doing this and I will be buying patterns :)

I'll hop on over to Ravelry and take a look. There are so many people in Ravelry now that I think if you just let people know it is being done over there that should be enough. I don't know how difficult it might be to post it in both places. It may make it difficult if you are having to answer different questions in different forums.

Hope you have been able to determine what is best for the living situation.

Thank you for helping out! I noticed one of the patterns you got was Pretty Polly, so I thought you might be interested... I'm going to be starting a KAL for this as part of the fundraising effort. I'll be putting up a blog post when I start the sign ups for it. The KAL will take place through the Fiddle Knits group on Ravelry. I don't know if I should start a Blogger blog for it as well... or if Ravelry is enough... Hmmm...

Erica, just wanted to let you know I purchased some patterns, I really think it great that you are donating part of the proceeds to the Lustgarten foundation via Kim Werker. I truly understand the importance of fighting this awful disease. I just lost one of my sisters to ovarian cancer.
