Craftiness, Do Something Good

Knit & Crochet for Joplin

Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe and Plymouth Yarn Company have teamed together to aid the victims of the tornado in Joplin.  Plymouth has provided several free patterns to use  with their Encore Yarns to create garments to send to them.

Please find below the rules and a view of some of the patterns below.  You do not have to use these patterns to participate.

I have contacted the guidance counselors at the schools to send the donations there.  We will send a shipment once a month until the need has been met.
