We are once again partnering with the Cancer Connection for our annual Knit and Crochet for the Cure to help bring attention and support during Breast Cancer Awareness month. The event will be taking place on Sunday, October 2 from 1-4pm.
A couple of snapshots from Knit for the Cure 2010! We had lots of fun!
This is an event that we feel honored to be a part of. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful community of knitters and crocheters to join together in this cause. The staff here has a great time getting to know our customers, and customers getting to know each other. In the past we have made afghan squares, chemo caps and scarves and in speaking with the Cancer Connection, the items we create and donate to this group all end up with a story attached to them. The kindness you all show by helping this cause means such a great deal to every individual that is a recipient of a cap, or a scarf.
I have included some links to the projects that we are going to be doing this year. If you have some stash to use up, what a great way to do so. If you would like to join us for the event, we will have yarn available for these projects. Please be sure to register for this event by contacting customer service or stopping by the store. Or if you do not live near WEBS, why not create one of these and give it to your local Hospice shop or other non-profit affiliates that would cherish the donation you make.
Here are just a couple of the projects we will have going this year:
- Breast Cancer Logo washcloth from KnitWits Heaven
- A lovely scarf pattern compliments of Classic Elite
- Two hour fingerless mitts which I located at Craftgossip
We hope you will be able to join us, we always have a good time, have delicious snacks, and good conversation. And you know how we like to raffle off some great door prizes!
