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!
The Stitch & Bitch of Westchester County is proud to participate, year-round, in several charity projects. Your participation allows us to donate to a number of causes, in our community.
Donated Acrylic yarn is often used for our charity projects. We look forward to and appreciate yarn donations from you, and the local community. All items should be made with Acrylic yarn, soft baby yarn, for hats.
You may use any pattern you like.
