Calendar for 2014-2015
- Handmade Especially for You: Guild member Lois Anderson collects hand knitted or crocheted scarves (fashion or warmth) that are donated to women entering domestic abuse shelters. The scarf is a symbol and reminder of the woman’s strength and courage for leaving the abusive environment. Please make them 56 or 60 in. long and no more than 5 to 6 inches wide. Leave drop them off at the Community table and add a tag with your name and care instructions. Contact Lois at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://handmadeespecially.org for information on how this project got started.
- Monona Library Summer Reading Program Prizes: The critters we made were a big hit with the kids in Monona (and with Guild members, too). We decided to make this a year-round Guild Community Knitting Project. Please click on the "Library Critters" link on the left for small and medium critters which we think will appeal to young readers at the library. We were able to deliver 647 critters to the library in May 2014.
Each month the Community Projects Committee collects and delivers hand-knitted items to one or more community agencies. At monthly meetings come check out the community tables. There will be Ready to Knit Kits available including everything you need to knit a project and patterns too.
Donations of yarn, needles, hooks, and other knitting notions will be accepted throughout the year. They are used in many ways:
