On Saturday, February 24th, 2018, I participated in the Crafting for a Cause event at the Siskiwit Hall in Calumet. This event was a fund-raiser for the Barbara Kettle Gundlach Shelter Home, a shelter that offers a safe place for victims of domestic violence and their children. Several other vendors showed their wares which included crafting supplies, stained glass, and cooking/baking equipment. A rummage sale table was full of crafting supplies available for whatever amount the buyer wanted to donate. There were also opportunities for card making, arm knitting, and Zentangle.

I offered three 45-minute Zentangle demos throughout the day. The larger (Apprentice-size) tiles created by the participants are below:




I was happy to share a “taste” of Zentangle with these students and hope to see them in future Introduction to Zentangle classes. This experience reminded me how much I enjoy sharing Zentangle!

I hope to participate in this event next year to help support an important service to our communities.
