Shipping days–those days when I pack up items that I’ve worked on for weeks or months and ship them to the organizations that will distribute them to their eventual recipients is always a special day. It’s a little bit like the days leading up to Christmas when I shop or finish up projects and wrap them and stick them under the tree while my mind pulses with images of the recipients enjoying the gifts.
There are tons of organizations worldwide which welcome quilted, crocheted, and other handmade items. This page includes a growing list of organizations accepting and distributing quilted and crocheted items. If you know of an organization that accepts handmade items which is not on this list please leave a comment and I will add it to the list.
