In Stitches -- A Knitting and Crocheting Group

The first meeting of our In Stitches group was held on January 8th, 2009 and we started working on our first charity project, which will be a WarmUpAmerica! afghan (made of 7" x 9" squares) to be given to a local Buena Park charitable group.

Our next meeting will be on February 12, 2009 (Thursday) from 2-4 PM in the Board Room on the 2nd floor of the Library.

If you can't make the meetings, but would still like to contribute to our project -- please stop by the reference desk to get the directions for crocheted or knitted squares. The patterns can also be found online at the WarmUpAmerica! site. We do have some donated yarn left that we can give out until it's gone. Or you can choose your own yarn. Currently the colors we are using are a dark blue, medium blue, and light blue (or any color that would complement that color scheme) of 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn.

Squares can be dropped off anytime to the reference desk or at our monthly meeting. The group is open to the idea of working on other charity projects in the future, some things that have been mentioned are preemie caps, chemo caps, knitting for the troops.... Please join us!

For further information please contact Phyllis or Chris at 714-826-4100 x 125
