Peterborough Knitting & Crocheting Guild

I belong to a knitting and crocheting guild her in Peterborough that knits for different charities - always we have knit headbands and donated them to the United Way Coats for Kids program - they hand out free winter coats and a headband - we have also knit/crochet afghans and donated 1 to each of 6 seniors home her - we had a raffle last year and the money went to the palliative care unit at the hospital and this year to the womens shelter where we meet for their playground fundraiser- next year we are again doing the headbands but adding mitts and hats; lap blankets for seniors and preemie baby outfits for the hospital - we have 35 or so members and they all participate in one way or another - we have a Christmas frundraiser here for the hospital call the Festival of Trees - each group, store, business group etc decorates a tree in a theme of their choice with the materials of their choosing and the trees are raffled or auctioned off for $ for the fund - last year 6 members did a wreath and the year before and next year we did a 6 foot tree (250 handmade ornaments) Each year we take suggestions form members and vote to see what to do help around the center where we meet too - this year we are donating a lot of household/kitchen items we've made to the center and to the women of the complex -Carol
