Make a Difference Night - rescheduled for October 16

The "Make a Difference Night" originally scheduled for September 18th will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on October 16th. We’ll have wine and cheese and some other organic goodies to nibble on.

Our eco-friendly and organic yarns will be available for you to sample, and we’ll show you how you can Make a Difference with the yarns you purchase. We’ll also teach you more about what it means for a yarn to be organic, or low-impact. We have plenty of great yarns and products which responsibly utilize our planet’s resources. The fee is only $5, and you will receive a $5 coupon for purchases of $15 or more. Please call to sign up and reserve your spot!

In conjunction with our special evening, we will be collecting knitted items for the people of Iowa. Carol Anderson of Cottage Creations is sending out a plea to knitters for the following items: mittens, caps, scarves, afghans, prayer shawls, baby blankets, dish cloths, socks, and sweaters for infants, children and adults. She will be distributing them to the communities that flooded along the Cedar River, and tornado-ravaged Parkersburg. If you would like to knit something, she is asking that you only donate one or two items. Please attach a card to your item with the following information: Name of item, size if applicable, fiber content (should be machine washable and dryable), and if desired, your name and address and any words of encouragement. Thanks for helping to “make a difference” in someone else’s life.
