Sit-N-Knit For Charity!
Join us for an all day
On Saturday October 14, 2006
the first annual Knit-A-Thon will be held in Columbia, MD.
This event hopes to collect knit and crochet items to be distributed to various local charities,
as well as unite members of the local needle arts community.
The Lakeside Café
10227 Wincopin Circle,
Columbia, MD
has kindly opened it’s doors to us to host this event from 10 am-3 pm.
Howard County is home to many great events for the needle arts, and we are hoping this event can become a yearly gathering of talent to contribute to the community, while enjoying
camaraderie of those who share our passion.
Team Knitting Event!
Have you ever done team knitting, where four people knit a blanket on circular needles at the same time? Beginning at 11 am, join other knitters to stitch a little, or a lot, to make a blanket in unison for charity. If you have never done it, this is a wonderful experience.
Door Prizes!
What could possibly make knitting and crocheting for charity more rewarding?
Prizes of course!
Everyone who donates completed knit or crochet items and drops them off
at the collection table during the Knit- A- Thon will be given a raffle ticket for door prizes that have been donated by local yarn shops and area businesses.
Prizes will be drawn at 3 pm.
Winners need not be present to win.
