A Crafty Idea

If you’re crazy for crochet, nuts for knitting, or passionate for pottery, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is giving you a chance to show off your crafting skills, raise money for charity, and win cool prizes during its “Craft for a Cause” promotion.

Simply create an item using the craft of your choosing – a quilt, sweater, mittens, doggy dish, blanket, etc. - using materials from your local Jo-Ann store. Then donate your crafty creation to your favorite charity such as a woman’s shelter, animal rescue, or soup kitchen.

Finally, log on to before October 30 to fill out an entry form and submit your receipt and photo(s) of your donated item(s).

The top five entries – based on quality, creativity, and the usefulness of the item for the chosen charity – will win a $1,500 Jo-Ann gift card. That buys you a lot of wool.

Charities with the most donations will be eligible to win up to $50,000. The top three charities will be voted on by crafters across the country at the store’s Web site between November 7 and December 4.
