Hooray!   Challenge #22 of 2016 has been completed.  Over the next month, there should be 100 pairs of nice, cozy, warm handmade slippers and 100 handmade washcloths on their way to Kansas!   

Next up - a Happy Hands challenge for the same shelter.   For anyone new to The Pink Slipper Project, when a shelter has a program in place to teach crafts/hobbies, such as, knitting and crocheting, or they would like to have supplies on hand for women and children coming into the shelter who may already know how to knit or crochet, we like to pitch in and send them some supplies to pass along our love for our crafts.  Knitting and crocheting can be great stress relievers!   We request a certain number of various items, such as, acrylic yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles, large eye sewing needles for yarn, and children's scissors.  Members then pledge if they wish to send any of these items to that shelter.  It works the same way as our regular slippers and washcloths challenges.

So......stay tuned!   Happy Hands coming up next!

Rachel, Judy, and Lynne
