Knitting for a Cause

This spring we are going to start a charity knitting group which will meet one Monday night a month from 6-8pm. Even though we aren't usually open on Mondays, we have decided to open up just for the evening so that this group can meet. We will provide free patterns and donated yarn to make knitted or crocheted blankets, prayer shawls, scarves and baby items to donate to local and national charities including Newborns in Need, Project Linus, Warm Up America, the Red Scarf Project, Cubs for Kids, Chemocaps and Warming Families. If you have a charity that you think we should add to our list, please let us know! For more information and links to online patterns, click here.

Our first meeting will be Monday, April 23rd from 6-8pm. See you there!!!

Great idea - I've marked it on my calendar!

We have a new local charity opening soon on the campus of The Children's Home. It is called My Aunt's House and will provide a home for otherwise homeless teenage mothers and their babies. I'm sure they would appreciate donations as well!
