Come On, Get Involved

The Pink Auction would love for you to become involved! Here are a few of the ways you can make a difference:

Do you knit, sew, design textiles, crochet, dye wool, weave, or create fibre art?
Auction items will be your beautifully crafted donations of high-quality, sellable textile art. This can be: Crochet; Knitting; Lace; Weaving; Quilting; Felting; Batik. We welcome creative textile donations in a range of creations, including: Fashion; Creative textile jewelry; Quilts; Blankets; Shawls; Bags; Wall hangings; Mittens; etc... Donation Guidelines

Are you a member or leader of a community group?
Community groups are wonderful forums to create a collaborative project for the auction. Blankets, baby sets, or quilts are wonderful for groups to make together and donate.

Do you own a wool or fabric shop - or have clean wool/fabric to donate?
We're seeking donations of fibre materials, such as wool, yarn, fabric, thread, felt, and fabric dye for asylum seekers and our volunteers to create auction items. It may not seem like much, but even a skein or two of wool or a meter of fabric can be made into something beautiful. We have volunteers with skill and dedication, now we just need to give them something to work with.

Are you a publican or restauranteur?
You could host a workshop or publicity event to promote awareness. It doesn't have to be big to make a big difference.

Are you on Facebook, Twitter, or Ravelry?
You don't need to create or donate to help us spread the word about The Pink Auction in Cork City. Look for us on Facebook, Twitter, and Ravelry and tell your friends!
