Join us we knit "Welcome Blankets"! We can ship for free - get your blanket here by Aug 15 and we'll send a bundle!
from their website, www.welcomeblanket.org: The Welcome Blanket Project aims to connect people already living in the United States residents with our country’s new immigrants through stories and handmade blankets, providing both symbolic and literal comfort and warmth. At the same time, the project offers a positive, hands-on way to understand the scope of a 2000-mile border wall and to subvert it from an idea of exclusion to one of inclusion. By participating in this project, people will also come together to talk about immigration policy and how it affects real-live people.
We are dropping our other knitting projects and making these using chunky or double-strand worsted superwash and washable fibers. We have copies of the pattern at the shop, or you can find them by clicking on the website at the top of this article. If you buy your wool here to make your blanket, bring your finished blanket in and we will thank you with a coupon to use on your next purchase of any non-consignment, non-sale items. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Our vision . . . is here!
Well, we just couldn't be more grateful. Our vision of a gathering spot for community members to share creativity, friendship, and encouragement is coming to fruition, and Feb 4 brought this to light. The afternoon "Sit 'n Knit" was packed with ten people meeting old friends and making new ones, full of laughter and sharing the joy of creating. This rowdy group was more than the sum of its’ parts. The projects were on display, the sharing of techniques and ups and downs of this pattern or that were unfolding, the joys and struggles of knitting, politics and “life” were part of the conversation, help, support and advice were offered up, and then the homemade cookies came out! Another friend-customer celebrated her birthday with us, wearing a hand-knit crown and bringing some friends, too. Thank you to all who are building this haven of fun and community!
