Need to de-stash your craft supplies?
Did you know there are charities for crafting?? It's true.
Consider using your extras to help someone in need!
Host a Girls Craft Night for a Cause,
and make a difference!
Craft, Interrupted previously had a link directory page for various craft charities,
but with the redesign of the blog, we have decided to spotlight these groups in (hopefully)
monthly feature posts instead. These spotlight posts will all have a
"Crafting for Charity" tag, so you can easily and quickly find the info again in the future.
Today I'm sharing Tabitha's Threads with you.
Tabitha's Threads was founded by interior design student, Rachel Lunger,
to connect artisans and missionaries around the world.
Tabitha's Threads equips creative people with access to free downloadable patterns
that match up with the needs of their existing ministry partners.
Tabitha's Threads currently works with the following:
Click the links to find more info
~ needing newborn caps, booties, and blankets for children born in their hospitals
~ needing winter hats & scarves for a Chilean girls' home
~ needing gloves, scarves, school bags, blankets, sweaters & pillow cases
for a halfway home for young women.
If you sew, crochet, or knit
free patterns are available at Tabitha's Threads to assist you
in using your talents to create for these needs.
"A handmade gift is a useful Gospel tool. Handmade items not only provide
for people in need but also show love and personal investment."
Take a quick minute and visit Tabitha's Threads on facebook or twitter (links above).
