In the summer every year, I start thinking about what I’m going to make for Christmas presents. I also start thinking about Bear Hugs and how many scarves I’m going to make for those in need. Bear Hugs is incredibly close to my heart. Every year since 2005 I’ve collected a large number of scarves and hats for New Bethany Ministries in Bethlehem. I’ve made a fair number of those scarves, too!
I want this year’s collection to be huge and I want you to be a part of it! I’m setting a goal of collecting 500 hand-knit and crocheted scarves and hats. All the information you need to participate is on the pages under “Bear Hugs”. Start thinking about what you can do to help and get started knitting or crocheting!
