It's that time of year again! The time to make things for others as the holidays grow near. Some of us are not lucky enough to have someone to make warm things for them. That's why we created Warming the Gorge, a great way to get warm handmade items to those in need. Warming the Gorge was founded by Yvonne Ellsworth and Sarah Keller in 2015 to collect warm, handmade items for those in need in our local community.
his year we are making it extra simple by giving all the warm garments to The Christmas Project. Families from all the groups we have donated to before have their people register for the Christmas Project. When they register they list who is in their family and what they might like for Christmas, so handmade things can be matched to those who need them. The Christmas Project also does a special tree for youth in Foster care where the kids often ask for warm things like hats and mittens. The Christmas Project is a wonderful organization, and they are looking forward to all the handmade things we can send them. So, clear out your closets, stock up on yarn, and get to making things!
You can bring your items to Knot Another Hat any time until December 9th or drop them off at the Registration Booth during Knot Another Fiber Festival.
