You've been "blessed"

We want to congratulate our two winners, Roberta and Diana, who each won a "Blessed" necklace by Creative Carmella.  We hope you enjoy wearing them and feel as blessed as we do, here at Craft 4 Change. 

Stay tuned for updates on "A Little Help", as we continue to sew walker bags for our seniors.  We received a box of fabric in the mail...so that means, more walker bags!  Woo-hoo!  Thank you so much to our crafty-gal in the Eastern US.  (you know who you are!) 

There is still time to get involved with this project.  When you have your bags completed, either send us an email or leave a comment on this blog or Facebook page and we will make arrangements to get them. 

 Deadline is November 15th.

We're turning two!

It was two years ago, on October 13, 2010 that we started this journey of making a difference in the lives of others.  We didn't know what to expect when we started, but the loyalty and participation of our crafters has been amazing!  We could not have done any of this without YOUR help!  Yes, you helped bless the lives of others, but we have been truly blessed.

In the year since our 1st birthday, you have provided 177 stockings to women and children living in transitional housing, 46 baby blankets for at risk and low income families, and most recently have created 56 drawstring bags for children living in an emergency shelter.  Project 8 is still underway, but we just know that you will be generous again.

So, with all of this celebrating going on, we thought it fitting to do a giveaway!  As a thank you for all of your support, we are giving away TWO of these "blessed" necklaces, created by one of my favorite bloggers, (and all around sweet gal) Carmella, the creative genius behind Creative Carmella

If you don't know who she is...well, you should!  So, hop on over to Creative Carmella and have a look.  And, while you are there, visit her shop.  She donates all of the proceeds from these necklaces to purchase coats for children in her area that can't afford one.  You can read all about it HERE.
Ok...so, let's get this contest going!  Two of you will each win one of these beautiful necklaces.  Just follow the instructions from the handy-dandy Rafflecopter.  Good luck!

New Bag Patterns

It is hard to believe that it is fall already, as it has been crazy-hot here in California!  So, we guess it is a great time to stay INSIDE (with the air conditioner on) and sew walker bags for our senior friends.

In case you haven't decided on one yet, HERE is a link for one style, and HERE is one more!   Just let us know when you are finished and we'll collect them!  Happy sewing!
