Hi All Crafters:
I am a special education teacher for students with various intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders.  We are a 5th and 6th grade intermediate school in Alabama.  We are going to establish a school based business. The students will be crafting their own items and we will sell those in our school and community. All proceeds will go right back into the classroom! 

I am looking for donations of the following items:
Ribbon (can be scraps) all colors, sizes - for keychains
Yarn (All colors and textures) - for Scarves
Felt - For felt wrapped animal pens
Modge Podge type glue
Fray Check Adhesive
Scrabble Tiles for necklaces
Jenga Game Pieces for keychains
Scrapbooking Paper 
Hot Glue Guns
Hot Glue Sticks
Leather Cording for bracelets/necklaces

Would also discuss other items you are looking to donate. We like to recycle!  Thank you for your consideration.
