Crafting for Charity

Since I need to keep my hands busy at all times, along with making beads and jewelry I also do MANY crafts. One of the things I love to do is crochet put together with my addiction to yarn, this can be a huge problem. soooo...... about 2 years ago I joined a group called All Crafts for Charity. Each month, this group takes on a different project that we knit, crochet and sew for. It's an amazing group. I am amazed month after month at the amount of items that this group provides for those in need.

AC4C's mission statement:

This list promotes sewing, crocheting, knitting, quilting, tatting, smocking and other fabric arts for the good of charities all over the world! We have free patterns, free advice and lists of agencies in need of your hand made donations. We mostly specialize in helping premature (preemie) infants and but also promote other charities that may need our help. Please join us in a positive and loving atmosphere that thrives on helping others. All we ask from you are loving hands and a kind heart.

Some of the charities that we work with are:
  • Bundles of Love
  • Small Home for Elders
  • Center for Grieving Children
  • Woven Lotis
  • Balboa Children's Hospital
  • WRC Pregnancy Center
  • Oasis for Hope
  • Knit Your Bit
  • Ships Project
and many others.

So far this month, I have sent in a few sweater sets and some squares for our amazing joiners to make into afghans. all crafters out there. If you want to join a great group and put your crafting to great use, please think about joining. The reward is unimaginable.
