In a special episode, we go behind the scenes with Vanna White, co-host of America’s longest running game show, Wheel of Fortune.
Jessica talks to Vanna from her dressing room at Wheel of Fortune and discovers how much time Vanna really spends making crocheted gifts, who she makes them for, and how she connected with the charity that benefits from the sale of her new yarn, Vanna’s Choice. Jessica also speaks to David Blumenthal, president of Lion Brand, as he shares his personal stories of working with Vanna White for the last 13 years.
Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life–Inspired by Vanna’s charity work, Liz and Zontee talk about different ways to connect to charities including the Lion Brand Charity Connection and subscribing to our Newsletter. Find out the top three things you should keep in mind when yarncrafting for charity.
