Kendra from The Stitching Bee in Green Bay, WI, set out to collect 22 bookmarks to donate to a second grade classroom. Students in the class learned to cross stitch this year, so they will understand and appreciate the time and effort that went into each bookmark.

So far, Kendra has collected 29 bookmarks, and there’s still a week to go. Extra bookmarks will be donated to the children’s library where they will introduce more kids to needlework and reward more reading accomplishments.
