This year The Homespun Yarn Party and Knitters and Crocheters Care are collecting knit and crocheted hats and mittens for Alternative House. Alternative House operates a house for runaway teens, a house for teenage mothers and they perform outreach for children and families throughout the Balley’s Crossroads area. Alternative House offers children, youth and families hope for brighter futures by providing counseling, shelter and neighborhood-based support.
This year we will be creating and collecting hats and mittens for
adults and children. You can drop off your hats at the Knitters and
Crocheters charity table at the Homespun Yarn Party on Sunday, March 23,
2014. If you prefer, we will also accept other cold weather wearables,
such as mittens, gloves, socks and sweaters.
Additionally, if you’re looking to destash - Knitters and Crocheters
Care is collecting yarn for charity projects and charitable
organizations throughout the DC metro area.
You can also grab your knitting needles and/or your crochet hooks,
and come and knit/crochet with us. You are welcome to bring your own
yarn, however, we will also provide charity yarn for you to work with.
Hope you can participate!! There will be prizes!
