Need Help Locating A Group or Charity?

We have a fabulous charity locator. We understand that many hospitals and other organizations do not want crochet items for donations. We are trying to locate organizations that accept crochet donations on an ongoing basis. In trying to participate with charities, we also recognize that not everyone wants to ship their finished goods across the country. There may be locations and charities within reach that may be very close to your own communities.

There is also a need to locate live crochet groups for people to attend. Finding these groups may be a tough task. We want to help you find groups that we know about. Our mapping program can map the world for locations. We are not limiting our listings to be only Canada or USA.

How To Get Listed on this Map

Charities

Charities must be accepting crochet based donations on an ongoing basis. Charities or organizations that are only looking for cash will not be listed on this map. Website address for researching about charity is required. Complete Mailing Address must be included. A short bio write up about the mission of the charity.

Live Crochet Groups

We will required the name of the group. A complete address where the group meets to be located on the map. Email address and/or contact information for the group. Short write up about the group. General Group Get Together Times, examples may be Tuesdays, or every other Monday. Or Weekly from September to April.

With any of the listings, it is the responsibility of the person donating items to do their own research about the charities. The crochet groups must be live in person attending events only. We are not responsible for groups that may have fees associated to membership. At this time there are no plans to list crafting shows or events that are only a few days each year.

If you would like to have a group in your area and/or are looking for a group in you area that isn’t on the map. We are listing only firm groups and charities on the map. Others in your area may be looking to. This is a great opportunity to connect with others.

Please Note

I am asked everyday by organizations and individuals to get free yarn. Though I am granted some yarn to make projects and videos, I am not given excessive quantities. Most of the yarn I am given has a plan or project attached to it where I am accountable for the yarn. For personal use projects, I am like everyone else where I pay for my own yarn.

I have no influence with any yarn company or organization to distribute free yarn.

Please look below the locator map for the submissions form.

      Ester, check out The Heart of Texas Threads of Love. We crochet preemie blankets for babies in 4 area hospitals. I also live in North Austin near I35 and Parmer Lane. There is a group of 4 ladies that meets once a month for lunch and lots of crocheting while strengthening in our friendship. If interested pm me.

      Do you have a local nursing home? This year we donated almost 50 crocheted scarves. Most nursing homes play bingo for prizes and the ladies will use their prizes for Christmas gifts or B-Day gifts. They are so thankful. They love lapghans also for their wheel chairs. Or crochet carry bags that tie onto the front of walkers.

    I was searching for your center and in the yellow pages it states that this buisness is closed. I am NOT sure how true it is, but I thought it would be worth asking. I am interested in joing a chairity org. I have down time at work, and have a lot of time to crochet. I would be interested in your crochet circle.

      Animal Shelters often need small pet blanket or you could even check with local nursing homes, veteran homes, hospitals (baby hats, blankets, etc.) or homeless shelters they may be in need of donations like blankets, hats and mittens, etc. You could maybe even start your charity crochet group via the internet. I know here in the states there are people who meet in public spaces to gather and crochet. Fun and SAFE for everyone. Best of Luck. =-)

      You can sign up for the Crochet Guild of America as a Canadian, it’s just a bit more expensive. I think it’s $79 per year? You still get all the benefits of a regular member too.
