has anyone ever...
I'm feeling more than ever that my knitting is a very selfish "hobby". I do make gifts, but I also make things just because I want to. So I'd like to do some charity knitting, BUT...

I want to knit what I want to knit. So I was wondering...

Has anyone ever formed a group of knitters or other "leisure artists" in their city or town who are accomplished enough to make things people would want to buy but who have no need or desire to sell their work for personal profit, and these knitters as a group then sell their handmade items at some specific venue or at an annual event, say, and then give the money to charity?

I'm thinking of trying to do this in my town and I'd like to know if there is a group of this type from which I could get some pointers.
