Magic Yarn Project

We're teaming up with the Magic Yarn Project to make soft princess yarn wigs for children fighting cancer. This free event is a great way to give back.

Chemotherapy often leaves skin too sensitive for patients to tolerate wearing traditional wigs, but these princess yarn wigs--built on soft crocheted beanies--provide a comfortable head covering for little cancer fighters. In additional, these sparkly and whimsical wigs offer a magical and fun escape from cancer and all its side effects. In essence, these wigs allow children to smile, play, and just be kids again when they need it the most.

With the help of volunteers around the world, the mission of The Magic Yarn Project is to make as many wigs as possible for the 70,000+ children worldwide who are diagnosed with cancer every year. We need the help of Utah "Magic Makers" to reach our goals! The wigs we will be making at this workshop will go to children at Primary Children's hospital as well as children battling cancer in Kenya and other locations around the world.

~ No craftiness or previous experience is required to participate! These wigs are easy enough for a teenager to assemble.

~ If you'd like to come make a wig, please RSVP on this event page and plan to arrive promptly!

~ Wigs take between 1-2 hours to complete and less time than that if you'd like to bring a friend to work on the wig together with you.

~ We have 100 slots available with interested volunteers from Payson to Logan, so RSVP soon!

~ No workshop participation fee!

~ Get ready for a lot of FUN as we work with yarn, sparkly accessories, and colorful ribbons. These workshops may be nearly as fun for the volunteers as the wigs are for their recipients!
