Auction for the KnitCamp Tutor Fund

As I originally signed up to be a vendor at KnitCamp, and then pulled out, I feel the need to help all the tutors.
They are having an awful time of it,
still, all of them have lost money due to not being paid, and also because they committed themselves to the fiasco, they gave up other jobs that they would have been paid for :(

So, myself and some of my other Woolly Friends have teamed up to donate a skein of yarn each, which we are going to auction on eBay, all proceeds going to the Knitcamp Tutor Fund

Please find a little funds to make a bid, or alternatively donate a little bit directly to the Fund.

They all worked bloody hard to make Knitcamp a success for the students, regardless of their own huge concerns, and it would be a crying shame if any of them went under because of their own selflessness.

And here is what all my lovely Woolly friends have donated, there's over a KILO of yarn here!!!

Donation from Debbie SkeinQueen -6 super skeins of Bamboo Soft, 100% Bamboo DK, 100m per 50g

Donation from Joy Knitting Goddess -An uber soft skein of 100% Cashmere Lace, 1050 yds per 75g
