Do you crochet, knit, craft or just love fiber? October 11th, 2013 is a day to celebrate your love for yarn.
Share your love of needle and fiber arts by celebrating “I Love Yarn Day”. This event is held annually and is scheduled for October 11, 2013. What better day is there to declare your love for yarn by joining in or starting a local activity. According to Mary Colucci, Executive Director of the Craft Yarn Council (CYC), the idea for “I Love Yarn Day” started as a way for yarn enthusiasts to celebrate yarn crafts and share their love with others.
“I Love Yarn Day” has joined up with Warm Up America. This is an excellent opportunity to make hats and mittens to help people in need stay warm this winter. Gather all your knitting and crocheting friends and spend the day making charitable gifts for this organization. Information about Warm Up America can be found at Warm Up.
