Brianne’s Basics Keeps Giving It All Away, This Time at the Primetime Emmy’s Gifting Suite
2011-09-08 · By Editor
Brianne’s Basics, a Long Beach charity craft business, will be featured at The IndiExhibit booth at the 2011 Primetime Emmys Gifting Suite September 16-17 in Hollywood. In addition, on Saturday, the owner Heather Nelson will display her handmade, one-of-kind Glee “Sue Sylvester” amigurumi in The IndieExhibit booth during the weekend-long gifting spree.
Brianne’s Basics, founded by Heather Nelson in 2000, is focused on affordable handmade gifts that pay it forward. Nelson wanted to combine her love of crafts and charity work, so this enterprising crafteprenuer created a “business” that donates 75-100% of all profits to various charities and not-for-profit events.
“I love what I do,” said Nelson. “I enjoy crocheting, and I have a passion for charity and volunteer work. This business allows me to combine both of my talents, while having fun with an amazing group of creative, like minded artists.”
In 2010, Heather Nelson was interviewed on Swoop’s World Radio about her passion for charitable causes and her work in the community.
Organizations that have benefited include Bears On Patrol, CHOC Walk In The Park, Give Kids The World, Operation Gratitude, Soldiers Angels, and many many more.
Nelson is also a member of The IndiExhibit, a non-profit organization that represents independent artists, designers, and creatives at the best celebrity gift lounges and events in Hollywood. Formed in 2010 by Shannon Justice of Lollipop Labs, Inc., The IndiExhibit features an array of talented international artists, crafters, jewelry designers, sculptors, photographers, writers, musicians, and more, who are looking to elevate their brand through celebrity gifting.
Nelson’s work has been featured at The IndiExhibit booth at the Sundance Film Festival and the Golden Globes Gifting Suites. Nelson was also honored to work as a representative for The IndiExhibit at the MTV Movie Awards this past June.
The 2011 Primetime Emmys Gifting Suite will hosted by GBK Productions September 16- 17, 2001 at the W Hotel in Hollywood.
