Happy July from Giving Artfully!

It’s time for our next craft-a-long!  Congratulations to Ravelry member nina6, for winning our $10 gift card to Knit Picks.  She made 12 wonderful hats for Halo’s of Hope.

What’s a craft-a-long? A chance for people to come together to craft for a common purpose. It’s a great way to get inspired by seeing other people’s works! Come join us whether you are a beginner or experienced crafter – there is something for everyone!

Here are the four organizations for July/August 2013 CAL. At the end of August, one random individual that participated in the CAL will win a prize as a thank you for helping these wonderful organizations. Projects need to be finished by August 31, 2013 to be eligible for the prize.
