If you are an avid crafter, chances are you rushing to complete a number of Christmas gifts. As each day passes by, we are one day closer to Christmas and gift giving. One more day of crafting time is swept behind you.
Once you are ready to take a breather, why not use some of your extra yarn and make 7â€ x 9â€ squares for Warm Up America.
Michaels Stores has teamed up with Warm Up America and many stores now have boxes to accept your 7â€x9â€ pieces. The staff there will them make arrangements to sew these pieces together into blankets which will then be given to local charity. This allows local craft talent to aid local needs.
This is an excellent way to use up your scrap yarn and help someone keep warm.
