MORE MAH JONGG HANDIWORK…

Last week I posted some of the coin purses that Donna had made – including the fabric!

She was kind enough to send a few more of her creations and here they are:

This is the collection of little mah purses that Donna made and are personalized with names -

WHAT IS IT WORTH?

The other day we posted a need for help in finding matching tiles for a beautiful enrobed Mah Jongg set that was an inheritance from a beloved grandmother.

A POLITICALLY INCORRECT MAH JONGG POEM

Johni Levene, the wonderful Mah Jongg teacher and player in Los Angeles, found this poem written by Edgar Albert Guest. It’s politically incorrect but oh-so-funny and I must admit my love for anyone who once wrote for my hometown newspaper, the Detroit Free Press. Eddie Guest, as he was also known, was born in England, moved to Detroit, and eventually became a U.S. citizen. He was very popular in the first half of the 20th century and was known as the People’s Poet.

TOURNAMENT IN WISCONSIN – AND FOR A GOOD CAUSE!

I received a message from Karla (and the Chopstick Chicks!) in Woodruff, Wisconsin. There is a fund-raising Mah Jongg tournament there - the fund-raiser will benefit The Fix Is In, a mobile spay and neuter pet clinic – on August 21st and she needs our help in figuring out how to make her tournament successful. Please send me your thoughts and comments!

Here is Karla’s message and the information on the tournament. If you are in the Woodruff vicinity, please plan to attend and help support this fund-raiser.

Hello Ann,
I found your blog on-line and was wondering if you have any suggestions for promoting a MJ tournament that is being held in Woodruff, Wisconsin on August 21. I have attached the registration form. You will see that it is a fundraiser for a local non-profit. The link to the form is http://the-fix-is-in.org/Mah%20Jongg%20Registration.pdf.
Also, if you have any ideas on how to make a tournament like this successful, I would love to hear them.
Many thanks,
Karla
