Charity Knits for Preemies
Westport Yarns’ next charity knit will benefit The Tiny Miracles Foundation — an organization that provides support for families with premature babies in Fairfield County and around Connecticut.
For this project we will be accepting donations of knit *preemie* sized hats. The parameters of the project are as follows…
- Any color and any washable yarn is fine, but gender neutral colors (green, yellow, white, mixed pastels) are especially appreciated
- Hats should be preemie sized, but any pattern is fine
- To support our participants, Westport Yarns will offer a $5 coupon for any purchase over $20 for every preemie hat submitted. (Limit 3 per participant)
- In addition, for every hat submitted before March 31, the participant will receive a chance to win special discounts and prizes at the completion celebration (to be held at the beginning of April)
We can’t wait to see all of your beautiful contributions for Connecticut’s tiniest residents!
We have an fantastic array of class offerings for Winter 2019! Most exciting of all is a new Learn to Knit series taught over three consecutive Saturdays. You can sign up for just one, or for all three (at a discounted fee!). If your schedule doesn't permit you to take all three classes consecutively, we plan to offer this series monthly, so you can pick up where you left off whenever your time permits.
For our more experienced knitters, Julie Van Norden is teaching some of the hottest patterns on Ravelry - including the Big Love Cardigan by ANKESTRiCK and the Wanderers: Modern Mukluks by Andrea Mowry. This is just a sampling...so hop over to the “Classes” tab on our website for more info (link).
We can’t wait to see what you create with your new skills!
