We would like to invite you to participate in a very special project as we continue to SAY YES TO NICE this year!
We are asking anyone who knits or crochets to donate 7" by 9" blocks. Beginning Wednesday, January 15 we will host our first Knit/Crochet Open Session at the library from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. If you would like to knit/crochet with us please join us. If you are unable to join us on Wednesdays we will also have a session from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday evening. These sessions will continue through February 20th. On the 26th and 27th of February we will be piecing the blocks together to create our blankets.
If you would like to participate but do not know how to knit or crochet we will be happy to teach you.
The blankets we create will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project and sent to injured servicemen and women at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center is an overseas military hospital operated by the United States Army and the Department of Defense. LRMC is the largest military hospital outside of the continental United States. It is located near Landstuhl, Germany and serves as the nearest treatment center for wounded soldiers coming from Iraq and Afghanistan.
If you would like to join us in thanking our servicemen and women but do not knit or crochet for an $8 donation we will send a SAY YES TO NICE T-shirt.
