Several members of the Freeman Needlecrafters made scarves to donate for the 2012 Special Olympics . The project was mentioned by a member who had been making scarves for several years for this project, and several others decided they wanted to help out too. Each state has its own Scarf Project deadline , and some states have deadlines as late as March 1st (the Texas deadline is January 30th). If you're interested in making scarves for the 2012 Special Olympics check out the information on Montana, New Hampshire & North Dakota (just to name a few). If you want to support Texas, keep an eye on the scarf project website or Facebook page for the 2013 guidelines to be released in late April/May 2012.
