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). Bring to our Monday meeting or contact Peggy for pick up.


Knitted Knockers

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.
