Stitching for Literacy: embroidered bookmarks donated by the Redwood Stitchers chapter of EGA

This is almost double the number of bookmarks the Redwood Stitchers crafted last year.

“The children were thrilled to receive them,” says Rose, the project coordinator. “It was definitely a successful and enjoyable project.”

Thank you for reaching out to kids to encourage and reward reading and to introduce them to the wonderful, creative world of embroidery!
