When I say Handweavers are so nice, I am talking about Handweavers Inspiring Yarn Shop.
They are hosting an Open Knit to help gather necessities for the YWCA Assulat Shelter
Open Knit: April 14 10am to 4 pm
Handweavers Inspiring Yarn Shop
Pre-registration: Guests registered by April 9 receive a Vera Bradley coin purse upon arrival at Open Knit, plus food and drink. Guests may also pre-order Knitting for Peace at $12 (retail $20)
Knitted items for women and children, especially mittens on a string and small blankets
Personal care items.
Items will be accepted at Handweavers until April 21
Isn't that awesome! It's several of my favorite things all rolled into one. Helping other people, knitting, Vera Bradley bags. Food, knitting, helping. It's really cool.
The new location is a lot bigger than the old one and the people are still really nice. Not just because of the Open Knit either.
Since no one took me up on my Stitch-a-thon challenge, I will have to think of a new one for this.
