Relive YearlyKos 2007 with a keepsake you can wear all year long

As part of our plans for celebrating and commemorating the second and final YearlyKos Convention (which returns under a new name, Netroots Nation, next year) we commissioned the design and production of a unique convention t-shirt featuring the Washington Progressive Blogroll (or netroots community).

Though we sold quite a few of these shirts in Chicago, a limited quantity remain, and we're now offering them to readers and fellow bloggers. These shirts are made of United States fabric (assembled in Latin America) - sturdy cotton, to be more precise - and are light blue in color.

The front features outlines of the states of Washington and Illinois with white stars denoting Chicago and the hometowns of Washington delegates going to YearlyKos.

The back features the Chicago skyline and the names and web addresses of all the active, major Washington State progressive blogs. Both the front and the back feature the text "YearlyKos 2007" as well.

These shirts are exceptionally durable and won't fade or degrade even after multiple washes. I have one from last year's batch (the first year of the tradition, started by our good friend switzerblog) and it still looks as good as new, even though it's been through the washing machine and the dryer many times. These shirts are a great collector's item because of their limited quantity. We're selling them for $25 each (with packaging and postage, $30).

We currently have a few available in all sizes - small, medium, large, or extra large. If you would like one, please send an email to feedback (at) nwprogressive (dot) org and I myself will reserve one for you. Let us know your name, phone number, your postal address, and which size you want in your message.

We want to ensure that as many people as possible who want one get one, so we will only be selling one per person - at least at the outset.

Once we receive your check or money order, which you can send to:

Northwest Progressive Institute
Post Office Box 264
Redmond, WA 98073
(write "T-shirt" on the memo line or enclose a note)

...we'll mail the shirt we've set aside for you. Alternatively, you can pick one up in person if you prefer - you can let us know your preference in your message.

We're not going to bother with credit card processing given the limited quantity of these shirts. Get yours now...and you'll have something great to wear on the plane or train to Netroots Nation in 2008.
