Your charity work could be featured in 'Handmade'

Hmmm…I’ve been thinking a lot lately about all the charity knitting, crocheting and sewing that so many people are eagerly taking part in to help less fortunate individuals.

Are you, or someone you know, a member of a charity knitting, crocheting or sewing group? If so, and you’d like to see the  group and the work it does featured in one of my weekly Handmade columns, please send an email to me at, and include the following information: name of group, detailed information about the type of charitable work, the location/city where members meets, and how often donations are made. Also, include the name of the group’s leader and his/her telephone number and email address.

Please put the words “CHARITY WORK” in the subject line of the email.

Thanks so much!!!
