Community Projects

Experience the joys of donating by volunteering with Community Projects. We contribute to local agencies supporting individuals, families, and even animal shelters in need through the following activities:

  • Creating kits or prepping yarn supplies that members complete for local agencies and organizations;
  • Greeting members at monthly guild meetings and collecting donations;
  • Collecting and sorting yarn donations for outside organizations, who then knit for others; and
  • Communicating with outside agencies to meet their requests.

Want to volunteer for the Community Projects Committee team? See Volunteer Opportunities.

Kits and Yarn Supplies

  • Kits, printed patterns, and prepared balls of yarn are free and available by emailing communityprojects@madisonknittersguild.com.
  • Members will knit up the items they take and return the finished knit items to monthly guild meetings or local participating yarn shops.
  • Knitters can also use their favorite patterns or see our Patterns page for new ideas.

We attach a tag to every donated item (except dishcloths and toys) with cleaning care instructions and the knitter’s first name (to personalize the gift). Tags may be downloaded and printed (see the Donation Tags page) or are available by request at monthly meetings.

Needles and Notions

Yarn, needles, and notions donated to the Guild are sold at discounted prices. If you have items you wish to donate, please see instructions on our Donating Supplies page.

Yarn Donated to Others

We accept donated yarn, which is used to make kits for items such as hats, mittens, scarves, shawls, cowls, or critters. Some yarn is distributed to the community, including community programs for children and adults. Toiletries are also collected upon request and distributed to community programs.
