Enchanted Makeovers – Team EcoEtsy Donation Project

EcoEtsy teamie (and current team captain) Myra Roldan, of HerbanLuxe, has organized yet another team project for the members of EcoEtsy - a mass donation of handmade baby blankets for a non-profit organization called Enchanted Makeovers.

According to Myra: “Enchanted Makeovers goes around several states making over family shelters. They have several on-going projects and are always in need of supplies – right now they are in need of handmade baby quilts.”

From the Enchanted Makeovers website: “Since 2007, Enchanted Makeovers’ mission has been to transform homeless shelters for women and children into places that inspire behavioral and psychological change. Through our various projects, mentoring programs and makeovers of the physical space, women and children are introduced to a way of thinking that helps to shift their outlook about their lives and possibilities for the future.” [Learn more...]

I'm an ex-hippie, eco-friendly, vegetarian mom of one grown daughter and three (OK, four) cats. By day I work at a university research lab, but my true passion is sewing - given the choice, I would sew all day and night, making beautiful, useful things out of discarded clothing and remnants. I am grateful for the opportunity to share some green crafting madness with the Eco Etsy team and all our blog readers.
