Come join us for a Giving Artfully Charity Craft-a-Long!

What is a Craft-a-Long?   A chance for people to come together to craft for a common purpose. Its 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 organizations for the May/June 2014 Craft-a-long.  At the end of June, one random individual that participated in the KAL/CAL will win a prize as a thank you for helping these wonderful organizations. Projects need to be finished by June 30, 2014 to be eligible for the prize.

If you are interested in joining the Giving Artfully Craft-a-long, just reply to this thread with the following information:

1) Project/Charity
2) Start Date
3) Finish Date and picture

Feel free to use any pattern as long as they follow the guidelines, if any, from the organization. Some organizations have more than one project (i.e. a project for hats and another for scarves, so any project for the organizations can be used for the  Craft-a-long)

For these next two months, I thought we can focus on international projects. For those projects that need to be shipped  internationally, you can mail your projects to us at Giving Artfully and we will send it one large shipment.
