2018 Special Olympics Texas Scarf Project, Austin, Saturday, 03. February 2018

Congratulations on our incredible success in making over 3000 scarves for the 2017 Winter Games. What happy athletes we had!!!!
This year’s scarf project is taking on a new look, and it goes like this……
When your drawers are full ….Ain’t got no room…..Who you gonna call? STASH BUSTERS
So, this is a year to use up your stash but with one caveat. We will have only one MAIN COLOR this year-BLACK- and you can compliment the black with as many beautiful stash colors as you want. (minimum of 2 colors ) The common thread of black in each scarf will signify that it is the scarf for 2018, but it will be complimented with many other colors. Our theme this year is
“ Every scarf will be as unique as the athlete who receives it.”
The other guidelines are similar to years past:
1) Dimensions are 6” x 60” (approximately)
2) Machine washable and dryable yarns
3) No Ziploc bags
4) Attach a small personal note with yarn to your scarf encouraging and/or congratulating the athlete who receives it. Please put your name on your tag. It means so much to the athletes to know who made their scarf.
5) Include your name and mailing address on a separate piece of paper so that one of our athletes can write you a thank you note.
6) If you are sending in a box of scarves, a note on the inside with the number of scarves included would be so helpful to those that open and count.
7) Please remember to visit your locally owned yarn stores. They have really been supportive of the project. If the stores in your area are not yet on board, let’s talk to them this year and get them involved!
8) Please talk to everyone you know about the project.
