Many of our larger yarn and wool companies do us the favor of producing FREE ebooks for use in charity work. We've covered this idea before on the blog but with my patch of the Adirondacks expecting 11-18 inches of snow, (as seen above) I thought today would be a great day to update!
The easiest way for me to keep this blog organized was to try to do this by yarn company. As you know companies that produce yarns, patterns, books, and tools for fiber artists change hands a lot so sometimes we have to go to the good old Way Back machine at Archive.org to find and mine the goodies. I think it's marvelous that we have these amazing resources at our disposal don't you?
Red Heart, owned by Coats and Clark, produce many affordable yarns, tools, and patterns for our use. I once was one of those people who refused to use Red Heart yarns because their basic yarns were not very high quality. However, and happily so, Red Heart has vastly improved their yarns and their tools over the last few years to be competitive. Lets check out their offerings of free ebooks for charity.
Yarnspirations has done us the favor of putting some of their patterns on ISSUU. Yarnspirations encompasses some of our favorite yarn companies all rolled into one great site. Bernat, Patons, Caron and Lily Sugar & Cream. ISSUU is a great site for finding lots of cool things like pattern books or "lookbooks". I love it. (and Its free)
So today's Charity Idea OUTpost is finished. I hope you find something useful to get you on your way to donation!
