I have finished one big commission, a tablecloth. The clients seem pretty happy with it and hopefully I will ship it this week.
At my last shift at the Museum, I got a million resources. The one I looked into yesterday was RACC, The Regional Arts and Culture Council. They have listings for jobs, grants, and all sorts of things. I haven't finished looking through their calls to artists yet. It's an amazing resource and I'll probably have to spend a few days wading though.
One of the things I found in the calls to artists was a call to knitters to knit panels for blankets that will be given to local homeless people. I've been working on that to try to get it in on time. It's probably going to snow this weekend and not everyone can get into shelters, so I hope I can help someone out. There seems to be a very active knitting-for-the-community scene here in Portland and there are many opportunities to participate.
I'm going to drop off some work at the Crafty Underdog consignment store today. Wish me luck!
