The Warmies Project

Looking forward to Distaff Day on in January 2020! Learn more at

Since 2014, Orlando Distaff Day attendees have donated more than 800 made-with-love warm items for people in need in Central Florida.

1/5/19 Thank you, Orlando Distaff Day!  The fiber artist community contributed 247 donations, which were taken to the Coalition for the Homeless, along with about 50 items of donated food.  They also wrote postcards to warm hearts – a nice touch to add an extra sprinkle of kindness to their 2019 Warmies drive!

We accept hand-made items to distribute to people in need in our community when it gets cold.  Each item should come with a hand-written note from the donor to the person who will receive your gift – warming their heart as well!

We distribute to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, hospices, youth programs, children’s hospitals, and more.

When including your personal note from the artist to the recipient, please use positive, encouraging, inspirational messages that respect the diverse worldviews of all people.  No political, religious, or similarly non-inclusive messages will be distributed.
