The buzz around the craft world today is the
2012 Indianapolis Blue & White Volunteer Scarves.
The project was announced in January of 2010 with a goal of 8,000 scarves for each of their volunteers around the stadium. To reach this goal they projected they would need to receive about 12 scarves per day. The Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee asked the community to hand knit, crochet, or weave a scarf for each of the volunteers. The completed scarves would be sent to the Indiana Women's Prison to have a unique Official Super Bowl Host Committee patch hand sewn onto each scarf.
Crafters from 45 states and South Africa, Belgium, England, and Canada helped the committee exceed their goals. Combined they have produced over 13,000 scarves and counting.
What a great and unique way for the Indianapolis Super Bowl Committee to say Thank You to all it's volunteers this year.

- Keep an ordinary emery board handy when working with plastic canvas. It is great for filing off tiny rough edges and for rounding off corners.
- Using fabric softener sheets for the dryer will remove grease pencil markings from plastic canvas. The sheets do not tear as easily and the marks come off easily.
