2020 Charity Challenge Reveal!


It's here!  After a very long year, our 2020 Charity Challenge is complete...so awesome!  This year, and for the past few years, I challenged myself and the Fiber Flux community to choose a cause and/or organization and make some items to donate.  I chose to make scarves for a local homeless shelter this year. 

Check out my reveal video here!


In case you missed this project, you can read all about it here! 

I gathered some things I had in my finished items pile, plus made some new things throughout the year.  My goal this year was 12 items, one per month of 2020.  At the time I filmed the video, I was up to 14 items.  In addition to the original scarf idea, I decided to add cowls, mittens, and hats, as they are also much needed items.  I went through the finished items pile once again and am now up to 38 donation items!!  I'm so happy about this!


I like to add a little tag to my donations when I send them off too...check out my video to show you how to tag your own too!

Before donating, be sure to contact the organization first to see:
  • What do they need?
  • Any special size requirements?
  • Do they need to be machine wash only?
  • Drop off procedures?
  • Anything else that might be helpful to know?
Also, many organizations need things all year long, so consider donating items throughout the year as well.



Did you participate in the charity challenge along with us this year?  Share in the comments or use the hashtag #fiberfluxcal to show off your work!


Also we have two special communities for our CAL makers! Each has a welcome area/thread, so please hop on and say hello!  You can get info, ask questions, help each other, see what everyone is doing, and show off your work too!



Stay tuned for our next Charity Challenge coming January 2021!  Let's stitch together for a good cause!
