Needle and ThREAD

Challenge Deadline

bookmark-daisy.jpgBreaking news: Roads near independent needlework shops participating in the Needle and Thread: Stitching for Literacy 2009 Bookmark Challenge are backed up for miles as talented and generous needleworkers across the country make the journey to deliver their hand-stitched bookmarks before the day is over.

The bookmarks will be donated to libraries and schools and awarded to kids during Children’s Book Week, May 11-17, celebrating reading accomplishments and sharing the beauty and joy of needlework.

If you have to be on the road today, allow extra time to reach your destination and expect delays.

Stay tuned for Challenge results.
