MECCA is moving

I just heard that MECCA in Eugene is moving! Over the years I’ve donated lots of fabric and other crafty things as they have a wonderful mission of spreading arts and crafts in our community. Exciting times! And they are asking for your help. So check out their website and see if you are interested in helping in one way or another.

From their latest communication:

For some time now, MECCA has been daydreaming about moving into a bigger space so that we can grow our community impact, and this summer, our dreams will come true!  Our new home will be located just down the road at 5th and High, formerly occupied by St. Vincent de Paul, and will more than double our space to learn, create, and nurture sustainable makers. It will give us greater ability to bring forth programs that just weren’t possible in our old home – such as hosting workshops and a recycled art gallery – and will allow for improved ADA accessibility and a more enjoyable shopping experience for our entire community.

A bigger space will help us create a bigger impact. I’m writing today to ask for your support to help us transition into our new home. With every curveball that’s come our way over the last couple of years, your support has helped us continue diverting materials from the waste stream for the benefit of our community’s creativity and environmental footprint. This move will be transformative for our organization, and we are so excited for what is to come!

Holiday Fair

This is a great holiday sale to attend if you are looking for unique and fabulous handmade art and crafts. I’ve been to it several times and there are always new and wonderful jewels and tidbits I need to take home!

And it’s so important to support local artists. Happy shopping!
