Patchowork 2011 part 1

We had such a great time hanging out with everyone at Patchwork today. A big thank you to everyone that came out to support. I am still in shock at how much we were able to raise for RUFF but more on that later. There were so many great pics of the event that I decided to split them up. Here's Part 1.
The Silent Auction started at 11am and ran till 3pm
While everyone was waiting we had plenty of fun activities 
Custom Patchwork Buttons
Lots of fun HARVEYS giveaways like raffles, stickers, postcards, pencils, etc...
...and a fun craft project where you got to make your very own HARVEYS tile coaster
There were several designs to choose from
It took a few minutes for them to dry which gave everyone a perfect opportunity to check out the rest of patchwork.
 I had to get a pic of this group with their PBN.
This was the lucky winner of the one-of-a-kind zipper pull charm bracelet, which matched her silver bag perfectly.
I snapped this pic of a charm bracelet that Sandie made herself.
Melanie Hosted a Design Lab and explained the process of how we make every new bag. I'll be posting more detail on this for all of you that weren't able to make it so stay tuned.
It was so great to see so many younger girls with their HARVEYS bags.

 These sisters were so adorable. I was very impressed with how the older one customized her bag.
She even asked if Melanie and I would sign it.
 This girl won this bag almost 3 years ago on our Newsletter contest back when we first released the Little Collection. Before we had Facebook and the Blog we had a monthly Newsletter.
We had a raffle giveaway every hour on the hour.
 Lacey's Nails matched her Wild Cherry Clutch Wallet.
A lot of people drove a long way to come to Patchwork.
 This was the first time she wore her "Death or Glory" Sid bag. It looked brand new.
 I spotted these girls while I was grabbing a bite to eat at the lunch truck.
 Sporting her new Razzleberry collar and leash that her mommy won in the silent auction.
 This bag is way old school. She said she bought it 12 years ago and has over 20 bags.
We were able to raise $4,000 for RUFF. This is way, way, way more than I ever expected. I am truly touched and humbled by your overwhelming generosity. Thank you so very much everyone. Your donations will be going to a very worthy cause.
And a huge thank you to our HARVEYS Crew, volunteers:
and Sharon
Who graciously gave their personal time to help out RUFF. We really appreciate it guys.
