Hope squared

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

I can't sew, but I wonder if it's time I learn. I'll add it to my "list" of things to accomplish that just stares and haunts me. I know some of you can though, and my friend over at chikaustin needs you! I've mentioned Jade in previous posts, but just to refresh she is the founder of Craft Hope:
-"a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world."
They just announced Project #5 - Margaret's Hope Chest. The mission is to provide handmade quilts to homeless children in the public school system in Detroit for the Christmas season. Craft hope is teaming up with Margaret’s Hope Chest, a quilting non-profit organization that serves other people in seemingly hopeless situations.
"They strive to share with people around the world the HOPE that they have been given. Over the past two years they have given over 100 quilts to children, adults, families, and organizations. Each quilt has joined a journey- a journey of sickness, death, abuse, fire, disease, disability, or new beginning."
If you are interested in helping, please visit Craft Hope for all of the details from Jade. Their tagline is spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time, and as I've mentioned before, I'll just be a planter.
