Out and About in PDX

Friday, April 24th, 2009


DIY Lounge’s own Cathy Pitters rocked her craft skills in this year’s Chair Affair event!  Below is the sassy stool she decorated.

The Chair Affair is an annual auction/fundraiser put on by the Community Warehouse.  They are a volunteer-based nonprofit agency that collects and redistributes donated furniture and household items to local people in need, at no cost to them.  On Thursday, April 23rd the talents of over 80 local artists featuring chair-related art that includes jewelry, paintings, pottery, fabric, and of course, dozens of fabulous chairs were used to raise money for this great organization. 
 
Pitters is the owner of  BossaNovaBaby (which she runs out of her flamingo pink craft bunker) and co-organizer of  Crafty Wonderland, a monthly art & craft event at the Doug Fir Lounge.  She is also one forth of the women’s collective PDX Super Crafty, and recently wrote a how-to craft book entitled Super Crafty.  Pitters currently teaches at various  kids camps through DIY Lounge.
