What’s 2015’s Service Project? “Scraps for Hats”! on behalf of Hemophilia and other related blood disorder patients!

Cleaning out your yarn stash? Bring all those unwanted scraps and leftover project skeins to Ozark Fiber Fling 2015 this coming November and donate them to Jennifer Rentschler’s Scraps for Hats project. Jennifer makes hats from yarn scraps and sells them online to help support various Hemophilia-related outreaches, particularly for women and children, including:

  • Women’s Hemophilia outreach retreats,
  • Camps for children with Hemophilia and other bleeding-related disorders,
  • Education and networking opportunities for women and children with bleeding disorders, and
  • Advocacy on behalf of individual patients.
