Handmade Especially for You: Scarves and Cowls are needed for women entering local domestic abuse shelters. Guild member Lois Anderson coordinates this activity and will pick up knit or crocheted items every month. A variety of styles and weights are needed. Fashion scarves may be used for job interviews and other scarves for warm. The scarf is a symbol and reminder of the woman’s strength and courage for leaving the abusive environment. When you turn them in please add a tag with your first name and care instructions. Contact Lois at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://handmadeespecially.org for information on how this project got started.
