Craft Fair for a Cause…raising funds for the American Cancer Society

Craft For A Cause

Recently, Kat from Designs by Kat invited Melinda Mae to donate an item to her online Craft Fair for a Cause. Many crafters are donating handcrafted items to Kat to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Kat is participating in the Relay for Life on September 11-12th, an event that will donate all funds raised to the American Cancer Society. All the funds that are raised by Craft Fair for a Cause will also be donated to the American Cancer Society. I have had many friends and family members that have been affected by cancer so I was very happy to donate and to be a part of this cause. I decided to donate the Melinda Mae Slippaz Clutch, which is the very last item in this fabric.

Please visit the Craft Fair for a Cause website and check out the items that have been donated. The great part of the site is that you will not only be donating to the American Cancer Society, but you will also receive a fabulous handmade item.

Thank you Kat for setting this up for such a great cause and for including Melinda Mae Handbags!

I showcased a few of the Melinda Mae Summer 2010 collection at my past shows in May, but I am happy to announce that the Melinda Mae Summer 2010 collection is now available online at! And don’t forget that any fabric that is on the Melinda Mae website can be made into a wristlet, clutch, small bag, medium bag, large tote or baby bag! Just shoot me an email at so I can make sure that I have enough fabric for whichever bag size you desire. Here are some of the new Melinda Mae Handbags from the Summer 2010 Collection. Let me know what you think!
