Here’s a new craft cause to join.
Purple Stitch Project (PSP) s a charitable organization to benefit babies, children and teens with epilepsy, and to raise awareness about epilepsy. It was founded by designer, author, and on-air personality, Vickie Howell, who is also the the spokesperson for the yarn company, Caron International. Their theme color is purple – any shade of purple.
They have partnered with Craftsy, for free patterns for scarves, beanies, wrists, blankets, plashes, and other items to sew, knit or crochet for children with epilepsy.
If you’re a designer, you can also donate a pattern to the project.
More information can be found on their website.
I don’t know anybody with epilepsy, but purple has been a favorite color of my sister’s and I. And crafting for children is as good a reason as any to play with yarn, don’t you think?uUzdXGxX;
