Are you a charity crafter? Nina: a well-knit shop in Chicago is having a knit-along to benefit the Mother Bear Project!

The Mother Bear Project sends handmade bears all over the world to comfort children affected by HIV/AIDS.

The bear pattern is available in both a knit and crochet version, is easy to make, and is a great place to be creative and add playful details.

If you are in the Chicago area, Nina is having the knit-along Saturday 7/14, Sunday 7/15, Saturday 7/21, and Sunday 7/22.

However, even if you cannot make it to Nina’s, you can still be a part of the Mother Bear Project! Their website has all the info you need on how to sponsor a bear, make a donation, or purchase a pattern to create your very own bear.

What other causes do you enjoy crafting for?
