Everyone working on the welcomeblanket.org  8×8″ squares, please hold onto them for a few weeks at which time we’ll have our first “Joining Party” – TBA

One time Charity Project!

 

The Stitch & Bitch is joining the Welcome Blanket  Project making welcome blankets for refugees & immigrants. They’re accepting blankets until 11/5.

The goal is to stitch and assemble as many blankets as we can out of the 8×8″ squares. Each blanket will be 40″. The museum is offering free shipping Smart Museum of Art, in Chicago. The blankets are on display through December.

I’m calling on you to make exactly 8″x 8″ squares – use 4 ply Acrylic yarn (only). You may knit or crochet, using any pattern you like, any color.

We’ll have a “joining party” when we gather enough squares. Let’s do it, ladies!
