Hugs for Japan Last Day is September 11

While it's not in the news any longer, the damage resulting from the March 11th earthquake/tsunami in Japan will take years to repair .  But thanks to many of you Yumiko Alexander will be taking hand made items for distribution in October.
We have collected over 500 scarves, hats, and other small items from people across the country for the Hugs for Japan project.  Yumiko's two free patterns (knitting pattern & crochet pattern) for "Hugs for Japan" are still available.   For more information click here.

The last day to turn in items for Hugs for Japan will be September 11, 2011.
HeatSync Labs, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit workshop and great group of folks, has set up a website, Crafts for Japan, where if you wish you can make a donation to help pay for part of the shipping cost to send the expected 1000 plus knitted & crocheted items made for the Hugs for Japan effort.
