Outreach Projects

Our knitting guild formed 2 years ago, and our first priority was to create an outreach committee to search out the needs in our area. Our first project was to knit hats, mittens, scarves for our local alternative high school. We delivered 37 hats and headbands,28 scarves, and 36 pairs of mittens just before Christmas, and received rave reviews. The next project we took on was knitting all kinds of times for Special Santa, an organization that collects gifts year round for an amazing party/give away at Christmas. Their director attended our November meeting to collect our stash of goodies, and talked about the children they serve who truly appreciate personal gifts. Our most recent project was knitting baby items for Heart Reach, an organization that helps young mothers. What fun to work on teeny tiny baby booties! We donated 86 hats, 19 sweaters, and a few sweater/hat/bootie sets.

We are proud of our accomplishments and donations, and are gearing up for this year's project, more knitting for Special Santa 2014.

We especially like using Vanna's Choice yarn for our projects. The color options are amazing, it's a good, soft acrylic, and the price is right.
