Charity Projects


Patterns and information for our current charity projects are found under “Patterns & Recipes”.


Project Amigo total squares to date = 279!! Sam sends his thanks and the link to the recently expanded blanket project. Meet the new seamstresses and see the finished blankets (with so many recognizably familiar squares) here.



Yarn Donations for Women in Need

Too much yarn? Need to destash? Consider donating to the knitting program at Interim House. A weekly knitting session is a regular part of therapy for all residents, and they rely entirely on donated yarn and supplies. They can use knit-able yarn of any thickness or fiber content and in any quantity (but clean and untangled please). Contact me for pick up and delivery.


Knitted Knockers

Note: we have a supply of prima cotton, patterns and mailing labels available for members. See Sue K or Peggy during meetings if you want to knit for a special recipient.
