Charity Crocheting with Tamara Kelly of Moogly Blog!
We hope you have been having even a fraction of the fun that WE have been having with Yarn Heroes, Lion Brand's campaign to inspire knitters, crocheters, and crafters of all kinds to make comforting items for charity. The X-Men have Wolverine, and we have MOOGLY, who should need absolutely no introduction. But in case you're a yarn maven who has been living under a rock, Moogly (aka Tamara Kelly) is one of the guiding lights of the online crochet community, as well as one of the most generous souls you will ever meet.
We got a chance to catch up with Tamara to talk about her approach to charity crafting, and we are so thrilled to share her insights!
LB: Greetings, Tamara! We were so thrilled that you were one of the first people to sign up for Yarn heroes! Can you tell us a little bit about why you got involved?
Moogly: I love how charity focused the crochet community is! And it doesn’t have to be hats for babies or blankets for the homeless or any of the usual things – you can find a way to help almost any organization you care about, even if it’s a yarn bomb to help raise awareness!
