Do you like to knit or sew? The Contemporary Art Center is seeking unique handmade scarves, hats and bags for Scarf It Up, an annual fundraising event.

Scarf It Up, sponsored by Downtown Yoga, will be held 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. Dec. 5 . The event features unique handmade scarves, hats and bags in a variety of mediums.

Those who donate receive a pass for two to attend the Scarf It Up auction, which includes live and silent auction items.

Deadline for submissions is Nov. 29. Include with each donated handmade item: your name, address, phone number, materials used, and directions for care.

Items must be handmade, the more unusual the medium the better. Completed items can be dropped off at the Contemporary Art Center or Downtown Yoga, 305 SW Water Street, Peoria.

Proceeds from Scarf It Up benefit the healing garden at Children’s Hospital of Illinois and the Contemporary Art Center. For more information contact Jeanne Perino at 645-7762
