Yarn Bombing Los Angeles is on a mission, and they need our help! They're covering the Craft and Folk Art Museum in LA with 5" granny squares to transform it into a giant doll house!
So here's the deal: They need 5" granny squares in solid colors (bright orange, lime green, white, cyan, hot pink, purple, and yellow) to put together and cover the museum. All submissions need to have a tail of 5 to 6 inches so they can stitch them together, and they need to arrive no later than March 1st, 2013. If you want to receive press credit for your work, include your name, location, and favorite type of stitch in your package of squares.
Send your squares to:
Yarn Bombing Los Angeles

Hope to see lots of squares from the Craftster gang on the finished project!!!
Once the display is finished, all of the squares will be washed, sewn into blankets, and given out to the homeless in LA. So it's a doubly awesome project.
***MORE NEW INFO***
Squares can still be mailed in until March 1st, so please consider making at least one!
Also, they're fundraising to cover the cost of the installation. They need to raise at least $8,000 by February 20th in order to receive any funding. All donations are tax deductible. They're at $3,972 right now. If everyone who sees this post can come up with $5 or $10, they'll be able to install this awesome project. Please take a look at the link, and donate if you can! Thanks!
