Nicky Epstein Charity Drive a Huge Success!
A giant thank you to everyone who helped us knit for charity! We donated all the blocks you made from Nicky Epstein’s Knitting Block by Block to Lion Brand’s Warm Up America drive. They collected more than 1400 blocks, which will make about 28 full-size afghans or 39 baby afghans, just in time to be delivered to those in need during the cold months ahead. Big thanks also to the lovely folks at Lion Brand and to Warm Up America for inspiring us all to give back.
Make a difference with your stitching! Get your local knitting and crochet groups together to help others. Here are some other organizations who would welcome your contributions. Make sure you contact them in advance and ask if they have any special requirements.
