Crocheting for charities is always a nice gesture. Whether you're new to crochet or you've been doing it for many years, giving a handmade gift will really make someone feel special. Charity Guide for Crocheters is just the ticket to get started if you've never done any type of charity work in the past.
Any type of handmade gift can bring comfort to a person's life; if they're facing an illness or a misfortune, a gift can bring a smile to their face. This book provides general guidelines for charity crochet and information on national organizations as well as over 20 crochet patterns to make.
We all know that crocheters love sharing their passion for crochet, so of course we're going to love sharing the warmth of our handmade creations. This book makes it easy with a collection of crochet hats, scarves, blankets, booties, mittens, slippers and so much more! The patterns in this book are easy to make, so even the beginner to join in on the charity-giving.
Anyone who has worked in a group setting providing for the needy know how much it means to the recipient to receive a handmade item. As a crocheter making something for charity, you have no clue who you're making the item for, but you do it anyway. Not only does it make you feel good to help someone in need, but it also helps destress you while working it up. Crocheting for charity can even help fight depression or sense of isolation. Feel good about yourself while helping others by working up the patterns within this book.
Aside from the amazing designs in the book, which by the way are provided for all ages, my favorite part of the book is on the very last page. There is a tag to fill out with size, fiber content and care instructions, so you can photocopy this tag and attach it to all of the items you make. The best part about this tag? It says "Handmade with Love!" You have to feel special about that.
Local and nationwide organizations are listed in the beginning of the book. Of course there are thousands of charities out there, so not all of them can be listed, but just to name a few: Soldier's Angels, Project Linus, Phillip's Wish, and Warm Up America. The guide at the beginning tells you how you can help by using easy-care yarns, it talks about health and safety, keeping items fresh and clean, privacy and more.
Charity Guide for Crocheters is a fabulous book to own. This is by far one of the greatest books you can always refer back to when you're in the gift-giving spirit of helping those in need. If you've never created for a charity before then this is the perfect place to start.
