Charity Knit & Crochet: Wright to Read Program

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Lend-a-Hand

This Sunday, March 13, from 11am to 1pm, fibre space™ will host a charity knit or crochet project for Wright to Read. In the past we have made caps for preemies, helmet liners for soldiers and scarves for Operation Gratitude. Keep an eye on our site for an update on each month’s project. Stop back frequently to check on our next charity knitting project.

Share your passion for knitting with youth from the Wright to Read program at the Family Resource Learning Center (part of Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority).  Join us to help continue the “knit education” of students at the center who have been learning to make their own scarves. We are in need of volunteer tutors / teachers during this event as well as kits for the students to knit with. The kit has one set of bamboo US#8 needles and one hank of Ella Rae Superwash. Purchase kits at fibre space™ now through Sunday March 13th. The materials are 20% off for the kits! (kit cost is $13.20)
