Warm Up America

I tried to contact the website to see if a certain material is required but I haven't gotten a response - so please use something washable.
Squares should be ready by March 7th or bring them to the sew together party (TBD).

Meetup is tonight at 7pm at Panera in Gurnee! See you there.

February is Charity Knitting Month

We are going to knit for Warm Up America. We need to knit or crochet 7x9 squares. There are 49 squares in an aghan and I am guessing we can make at least 1 or 2. I have contacted the local red cross to see if they will accept them or we can mail them to the Warm Up America Head quarters.I sent them an email to see what they should be made from - I'll post that once I hear.If anyone wants to check out their site:http://www.warmupamerica.com/home.htmlOnce we've collected our squares we can have a sewing together party : )the website also has some suggested patterns for squares if anyone wants to get fancy.If anyone has questions please send me an email.

Our next meetup is February 7th at 7pm until 9pm at Panera in Gurnee.
