A Thank You from Julie and Heidi

Blythecon Brooklyn, what an experience.

I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet but no promises😉

First and foremost, THANK YOU. If it wasn’t for the people in this hobby this event would have not happened. Your encouragement, love, kindness, excitement and generosity made this event as special as it was. Thank you for having faith in our team.

The team, Melissa Grecco, Catherine Sarlis Cardona, Holly Chan, Heidi Corley Barto…you guys are the best. This was a team effort and from the start you were there helping and I couldn’t ask for sweeter people to be on a team with.

Our 2nd team, Rick, Gillian, Paige, Randy, Jessica romero, Nicolle & Gina…there are not enough “thank yous” I can give to show you how much your help and support mean to me and the whole team. You guys don’t even collect dolls!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Our 3rd team, the hubbies:) Ricc, thank you my love, for listening to me talk, cry, & stress over bcbklyn for over a year and telling me everything is going to be ok, you were right❤️ Thank you John for helping Catherine decorate the venue and thank you Frank for helping Linda with the cake duties.

The vendors, thank you for working so hard and bringing your best to BCBKLYN. I hope you all had a wonderful time and made all your money back😉 but seriously, thank you so much for making your way from all over the world to join us in Brooklyn. You made a lot of collectors very happy❤️

The people in the community who sent us donations, thank you!!! You guys are amazing. You took your time, skill, and money to donate to our event and with all that kindness we had enough prizes for everyone to go home with something special. I am not lying when I say that each person who I handed a prize to loved what they won and had a huge smile on their face. Your donations were appreciated by all❤️

And a big thank you to past Con planners, Christine from Chicago, Carrie from San Fran and especially Erica Martinez from Ny for answering all of my questions and giving me advice. I have never planned an event like this and these ladies where kind enough to share their experience and tips with me. Thank you!

I know some people might think this is a bit much, it’s not like I won an oscar, but I’m honestly so thankful to everyone. I wish I had more time to sit and talk with everyone but know that I saw you all. I saw you laughing, making new friends, seeing old ones, taking pictures, having fun at the photobooth, finding new vendors to love, getting that item you were hoping to get, sewing your first dolly item, and just being happy. And that is way better than an Oscar❤️

Thank you, blythe family, for this experience.

See you next year in LA.

Julie Blythe

I want to say a huge thank you to Kathleen Stevens and to Momoko Komori! Kathleen, if it wasn’t for you setting up all of the sewing workshops with Momoko, we wouldn’t have had any. It would have been macaroni Blythe necklace making led by me and Julie!! We’re actually a bit craftier than that, but I definitely know our sewing skills are not up to par, lol! Thank you so much for herding all them sewing cats, and thank you to Momoko for teaching them! I know we’ll see plenty of sailor dresses and duffle coats in the year to come! Thank you both!!

❤ XoXo ~ Heidi

Blythecon Brooklyn Merchandise!!

screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-6-20-58-pmSo this morning I had a great idea while getting ready for work. As I put on my Lularoe leggings I thought, “Hmmmmm… How awesome would it be to have leggings made from the Blythecon Brooklyn fabric?!!” Then Katherne Hardin, my Blythe idea enabler, suggested Redbubble. Well, For the last three hours I have been designing like a mad woman!! We now have a shop with some Blythecon Merchandise, and no markup!!
(FYI – I have never bought any of their products. Please read reviews before purchasing. I google searched Redbubble leggings reviews instead of relying on reviews on the Redbubble site)

Our Redbubble Shop!!

Help Us Make BCBKLYN Great!

To our Blythe Community,

Blythecon Brooklyn will be held this October! That’s only 8 months away!
We’re hoping to combine a few goodie bag/drawing ideas from our most recent Blythecons, but to do that we need your help.

We need donations! Drawing donations and goodie bag donations!
The more, the merrier!
Our community is full of creative, artistic, and generous people, please help us make this Blythecon awesome!

This will be a not-for-profit convention and any remaining ticket sale funds will be donated to the Department of Pediatrics at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC.
**All donations will be distributed to attendees on the day of the convention.**

Questions you may ask..

What can I donate?

Anything! It can be a small as little slips of paper with special coupon codes for attendees, to something as big as a custom doll or a *gasp* a Kenner. Nothing is too small or too big!

Will my drawing donation disappear and I’ll never see it again or know who won it?
Absolutely not! We will catalog all donations as they come in and let each person know we’ve received them. You will also be publicly thanked for you donation and hopefully we will be able to get a picture of the winner with their prize (Some people are camera shy)

Here is the Donation Form Page for anyone that wishes to pledge a donation.

Thank you!!
Heidi Corley Barto (Donations Wrangler)
& The Blythecon Brooklyn Team
