Yarn For Peace, Inc
Three yarn-y friends in St Petersburg, Florida, decided one summer day to cast on their skills and connections within the knitting community in an effort to create good (and peace!) in their community and beyond. Yarn for Peace was born from a love of fiber art, compassion for humanity, and a desire to see a positive change in the world.
Yarn for Peace distributes donated needle arts resources for artistic, educational or charitable purposes; provides education about the needle arts for underserved communities; and promotes the use of needle arts in the community as a catalyst for peace.
We are currently working on a community knit blanket to raffle. Need 6 inch mitered or garter stitch squares, any color, any weight, any fiber except 100% acrylic. Bring in or send to:
Stash-A Place For Yarn
2820 1st Ave N
St. Petersburg, FL 33713
Or if you'd like a chance to win the blanket make a $5 donation here:
