Crafty Wonderland is using its downtown pop-up at 802 SW 10th for good: Through December 21, drop off unused "cozy" handmade items, like scarves, hats, gloves, and blankets (or, knit a few rows on an in-progress scarf at the shop) and they'll get them to a Transitions Projects/YWCA-hosted women's shelter downtown and to New Avenues for Youth. Haven't been to the Crafty pop-up? They've still got plenty of events coming up to use as an excuse:
