Meet-up on Friday, May 16th

Ladies, we will meet-up on Friday, 5/16 – 1 -3 p.m at Panera.

We’re making progress on our squares…keep them coming! I’m trying to collect as many as possible over the next few months. Some of the squares for www.knit-a-square.com

Our new charity project: Knit-A-Square

As many of you know we are working on a new charity project. We do a lot of charity, for local groups. This is our first international group project. I’m excited to be a part of something with such reach. It’s simple, we make 8″x 8″ squares (crocheted/knitted) to give to KAS: Knit-A-Square Please watch the video on their homepage which explains how it works. They also have many links for patterns, ideas, etc.

How we can help: make squares, out of any yarn (as long as it’s warm), any color! The squares MUST BE 8″x 8″. Leave a 20″ tail which is used to sew the blankets up. The squares are then assembled by a team of volunteers in Africa, who will stitch them together making blankets. The blankets are then distributed to orphaned/abandoned children in South Africa, many of these children also have AIDS.

This is the first square made: 1st square Yellow 8x8 Square for KAS 5.3.14
Crocheted: I just found this site for a number of 8″x8″ patterns: <a href=”http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/8in_squares.php”>http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/8in_squares.php

Meet-up on Friday, 5/2 – more details below

Ladies, we will meet-up on Friday, May 2nd, at Panera, 1 – 3 p.m.

A few months ago Karna posted on our FB group a new charity project we could take on: http://www.knit-a-square.com/ We agree this would be an excellent opportunity to offer 8″x 8″ squares. Their web site has patterns for both knit & crocheted squares if you don’t have one of your own. However, if you already have one that works, great…as long as the squares are 8 x 8″.

Our Kathi F is ISO scrap yarn!!!! Please bring it any scraps you may have to offer.
Kathi F: “I am looking for that little bit of yarn that is left after we complete a pattern.
One of my clients from the pantry uses the scrap yarn to make blankets”.

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!!

Meet-up on 4/18

OK ladies, being Good Friday many of us will not meet-up this week.

However, we’re a large group and a few of the ladies are happy to come out. So, if you’re available, stop by Panera on Friday, 1 p.m. If not, will see you next week.
Happy Passover & Happy Easter

Yarn & Blankies

Over time the Ladies of S&B have given me yarn and knitted items for the babies. You may wonder where they go. This last weekend in the local paper there was a letter from a woman in Bedford prison saying how much crocheting has changed her life. Some the yarn goes to Bedford.

There was another feature about child birth and a new Mother expressed how delighted she was to receive a hand knitted blanket for her daughter in the NICU at Westchester Medical Center. Your baby items go to that NICU.

All that you have donated has gone where it is truly appreciated.

Thank You, Susan
