There will be people on hand to teach beginners how to knit or crochet during these time frames:
Charity knitting: Each year we chose a charity to donate to. This year it will be the Austin Street Shelter. We will be accepting any knitted or crocheted item that you wish, including but not limited to hats, scarves, mittens, gloves - basically any clothing or accessories. These items may go to the inhabitants of the shelter or to be sold in the thrift store for profits.
CONTEST: This year the contest will be PURSES. There will be prizes in 4 categories:
* Best original crochet
* Best original knit
* Best crochet
* Best knit
Want to help? If you want to volunteer or donate supplies, Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. What do we need?
* People to be available to teach beginners to knit or crochet during the above designated times.
* Spinners- I need about 5 people with wheels & some people willing to demonstrate with a drop spindle. Bring your own fiber, but this gives you lots of spinning time. Surely people will be asking questions & watching you - if that doesn't bother you - you are perfect for this task. (I can only take the first 5 respondents, sorry)
* Spare needles & hooks - Preferably a mid-sized (7/8, G/H) - Make sure they are spares, you will likely never see them again. We will use these for beginners that didn't bring their own.
* Yarn - scraps & odd balls are perfect. We need smooth, worsted yarn to teach beginners & crazy fun yarn for the Las Vegas scarf.
