2 crafty ladies + pretty fabric = stockings!

Look at this pretty fabric recently purchased by two of our loyal crafty ladies!  It won't be long and this stash will be turned into beautiful stockings for the women and children at St. John's Shelter.  We can hardly wait to see the finished product.  Thanks so much!

There is still time to participate in "The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney With Care" ~~ Deadline isn't until December 1st.

Happy Birthday!

Craft 4 Change turns one year old today! It was October 13, 2010 that we launched this blog with our first project, "Wrap Them in Love".  We really didn't know what to expect, but the results have been amazing. 

In the last year, YOU created 120 scarves for women and children living in a shelter, 24 purses, 9 pairs of earrings, 5 necklaces and 3 bracelets for girls who didn't have accessories for their prom, 90 bright and colorful pillowcases for children with cancer and 95 cooling neck scarves for our deployed soldiers.  WOW!  Thank you doesn't even begin to express our gratitude.  We are humbled by your generosity.

We have had readers from all over the world. Our blog has traveled from the United States and Canada, to the United Kingdom, Germany and Russia.  People from Australia, South Africa and India have read our blog.  Readers from Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.  It is amazing, the power of the Internet and how far it can take you.

Thank you to our "followers" and those of you who "LIKE" us on Facebook.  We appreciate ALL of you, whether you craft or not.  Like the saying goes, "It takes a village", and we could not do what we do without all of your support.

So, as we continue to make a difference, "one life at a time", take time to reflect on your own blessings.  We, here at Craft 4 Change have many.

Project 5 is still underway and we have had a few "stocking sightings"...keep up the great work.

Here's to another creative year ahead!
