It's been a while since Washboard Bill has been to his blog, I bet you thought Bill forgot about you. I didn't. Crochet takes up a lot of Bill's time and sometimes Bill thinks he needs an assistant to help with all of the work that needs to get done. Yarn to be organized, hooks to be found; quite often Bill will misplace a crochet hook, won't be able to find it and then go out and buy more, only to find that he placed it down on his dryer, or kitchen table. Bill needs one of those stretchy, elastic clips! Or a crochet magnet! ha
The crochet projects have been moving along
quite nicely at the Emporium. Bill spent this past weekend taking photos
of some of his new work, with the help of some lovely & wonderful
models. Here's a sneak peak for all of you, who have been patiently
waiting for Bill to stock his shop with new items.
So, on May 1st, Bill will be uploading many new items to his Etys shop.
SAVE THE DATE! That's tomorrow. YAY! Presently, Bill is fundraising to
help his friend Luke, who has kidney cancer. Luke is struggling to pay
for his medication (which is reducing his tumours) & keep the lights
on at Luke home. Bill's talented friends got together and donated
handmade goods in the hopes that it would be enough to help him along.
And Bill would like to report that the money raised so far has helped
Luke pay for some bills and get some necessary medication. It's changed
Luke's life. Thank you to all who have participated in the fund raising.
Now, onto the new photos. Enjoy! :)

Each hat is handcrafted by Washboard Bill with care, creativity, and an interest in making sure you can wear, wash, play, and enjoy each hat, for years to come. Bill has been quoted as saying "My hats were made to last. You'll be leaving them to your grand-kids in your will, along with all your other precious and most beloved items." There are no patterns for any of Bills hats. They are all made from scratch. Original designs. This means you won't find another hat like Washboard Bills anywhere. Which means you are really buying, owning and wearing a couture item-without the couture price. This alone makes you hip.
