Hey, friends! How's it going? Time for some updates on Pocket Sushi!
Patreon Pin Club
A few years ago I had a Patreon that I tried to use to provide fans with a way to continue to passively support my work. There were rewards, like access to my original crochet videos, exclusive amigurumi, and even a monthly grab bag. However, it wasn't very successful and ate up more than was worth my time and I closed it in late 2016.
Now I'm trying Patreon again. This time, however, I will be using it primarily as a pin-of-the-month/pin club. For a $15+ monthly pledge you will receive a brand-new 1" hard enamel pin, plus a few patron exclusives like stickers and early access to new designs. I want to expand my pin catalogue and I am hoping Patreon will be more efficient than Kickstarter.
If you're a fan of my designs or of enamel pins in general, or just want to show your support, you can sign up now at patreon.com/PocketSushi. The first pin will be shipped out on October 1st!
I am happy to announce that I will be a vendor at the inaugural show for GaoKon! GaoKon is an anime/geek-centric convention and will be held at the PennState campus near Erie, PA on the weekend of November 10 - 11. I don't have any word yet on where I will be located, but I will announce the details as soon as I have them! If you aren't already, follow me on Twitter or Facebook to be the first to know!
You can find more information about GaoKon at gaokon.org.
Thanks for reading! <3
