Welcome to Lottie's Charity Crafts

Thank you for visiting my web site. I am a sewing volunteer for hospitals in Central Texas. I enjoy sharing my passion for charity crafts with others, and my web pages are for you.

If you don't know the term "charity crafts", perhaps this quote from Sewing.About.com will clarify it for you:

"If you have ever been hit with a disaster or watched a close friend lose everything to a house fire or weather disaster, you know the need for people to help each other. Most sewers have a heart of gold and a fabric stash. Here are some ways to help others using your sewing skills. If you belong to a sewing group, you can get the whole group involved. If you're working on your own, I'm sure you can find family and friends who would love to help. With the help of the internet community, we should be able to fill all these needs."

Charity crafts can be anything from making simple pillows for children to hug during a stressful visit to the hospital to making a pad for an animal shelter. If you enjoy crafts of any kind, please consider using your talents, your time, and your heart to help others in need.

I've collected several URLs that describe a wide variety of organizations, projects, and needs all over the country. This list of URLs represents only a small number of the hundreds of web sites devoted to charity crafts. Get comfy and enjoy your surfing.

Even though I may describe certain fabrics for use in making these items, many of these items can be sewn, crocheted, knitted, etc. Let your own community's needs and your experience tell you what materials to use.

Every craft person has their own little piece of heaven where they create. Here's mine.
