  • Knit or crochet a lap blanket, baby blanket, or adult sized hat.
    • Yarn must be soft and machine washable.
    • All colors will be accepted, but we are requesting as many neutral colored items as possible.
  • Bring your item(s) to Houston Fiber Fest.
  • Receive a raffle ticket for a special charity prize basket.
