    Popped onto Craftsy this morning and found the Keep Out the Cold campaign information and I’m so excited! I had just listed a reversible polar fleece winter headband pattern two days ago that I use to make and donate to charities so this is right up my alley to be able to donate several to this cause too!

    This is why I love Craftsy, it gives me ways to give back!

    Wow I just posted about you as well. My delivery came a day ahead of schedule which was a great surprise and I just loved all of the fabrics that I ordered. I am still exploring the site and really like what I see. I can see that I am going to be a frequent flyer here!

    Seems like Craftsy is everywhere on the net. It doesn’t matter where I go Craftsy has left a footprint (exception is adult sites, haven’t gone there). Way to go guys!!
