My name is Heather but most people on here know me as
I created this group as an alternative to
, though I love that group I feel there should be a group were you should not have to go through the approval process or wait 3-7 per one submission.
YWAC was also created as an outlet for any yarn based crafts:
and any other yarn based crafts.
Also my hope/intentions with this group where and still are to bring up things that people can do to help in their area.
-Making cancer hats.
-Also around the world there are organizations like Warm Up America, where you make blankets during the year that go to people that are poverty level or in homeless shelters.
Also I like the bring up the practical part of yarn arts.
-Making market bags. Being that I have lived in Chicago for the past year I have figured out that with some stored they will charge you if you have to take home your groceries in plastic bags. They are better on the environment and there also a form on self advertising.
(Only one example for that category for now.)
Another reason that I choose to establish this group was to teach. To teach people how to read patterns if they are new to either knitting or crocheting, to teach how to read the schematic format of patterns (both knitting and crochet), to teach where you can get yarn on the cheap,help people that are wishing to sell on etsy,and so on.
