Annual Scarf Market
Thanksgiving thru Christmas
Help us make our Fourth Annual Scarf Market a success.
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, String Theory sells scarves that have been knit, crocheted and donated by you. In the last three years, we’ve raised $13,000 and supported PADS, People’s Resource Center and Family Shelter Services.
This year, the money we raise will go to the DuPage Homeownership Center a local organization that:
- Helps prevent foreclosures
- Increases housing opportunities for working families
- Assists cash-strapped senior homeowners in maintaining their independence
We’ve started to receive many beautiful scarves, but we need more. We accept scarves, shawls and cowls in any yarn (acrylic, novelty, silk, wool). If you can attach the yarn label to the scarf, that will help us with pricing and washing instructions.
Soft scarves sell faster. And we always need more scarves for men.
Every year I get questions about how big the scarf should be. A good average is 5″ x 60″. Of course kid’s scarves can be shorter (and should be machine washable).
So while you are watching football or the election returns, please consider making us a scarf. We will turn your time into a cash donation for an organization committed to helping out our community.
