    Thank you for including my no-sew Fabric Pumpkins from CraftsnCoffee.com! They are a super-easy DIY, and every year I like to make a new set with different fabrics. Happy crafting!

    Love learning/trying new crafts and I really look forward to your posts 😀
    But I have a question for Western Canadian crafters. I’m an intermediate knitter who enjoys knitting teddy bears, dolls, etc . Any ideas as to the best place to donate my handiwork ?

    • Jodie- Editor Crafty Like Granny on October 16, 2017 at 10:08 pm

      Hi Lorraine. That’s great to hear 🙂 Good question. We will do some research and get back to you. Hopefully some of our lovely readers will be able to help. Cheers Jodie

      Hi Lorraine. A few of our lovely readers have gotten back to us with recommendations 🙂 This was a great one…. “all I did was to phone up the local hospital and ask and they gave me a list of some organizations that donate toys. Contacted them and have since made some great new friends too” Cheers Jodie
