Welcome Blanket Initiative

Now - end of November

The Heritage Museum in Winooski is partnering with AALV to host/sponsor an initiative, started by one of the co-founders of the Pussyhat Project, encouraging knitters, crocheters, quilters, and felters to make a "welcome blanket" for refugees to the state.

If you need to learn more about what constitutes a "refugee" (as compared to an immigrant) you can read more about that HERE.

Blankets need to be easy care (that's why, if you register and commit to making one we are offering a discount on the 6 balls of Encore needed) and 40 x 40. There are pattern ideas available HERE.

The Heritage Museum is collecting the blankets by Thanksgiving time and they will be on display at the museum Dec 1st thru the end of February before they are handed out to new neighbors in March.

We have the Welcome Blanket Initiative cards here at the shop - the card provides you more details and should be attached to your blanket when you deliver it. The card includes a place for the maker to jot down a welcome message to the refugee.

Fall Clearance Sale - Sat Oct 1st

For those of you not heading to the Sheep and Wool (or going to that on Sunday?), come on by and pick up some great yarns at rock bottom prices!

I'll have a big table of $1 - $3 clearance yarns where there may only be enough of a color to knit a hat, mittens or small cowl. Plus I'll have several tables filled with yarns at great discounts where there are still enough of really great colors to knit sweaters, shawls or bigger projects.

And, I have some fibers on clearance too! So if you're a felter, you may want to mark your calendar as well!

Here are a couple of sweaters knit by my sister who took advantage of the last set of clearance yarns here - sweaters for my 4 and 8 year old grand nephew and niece, respectively!
