Roseanne, a dear customer of ours is involved with Project Lighthouse and we thought we could help her get some hand knit/crochet donations from all our wonderful charity knitters and crocheters!
"Project Lighthouse is a grassroots organization whose purpose is to provide new winter apparel to elders, children and others on Native reservations, especially the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. A wonderful and welcome accompaniment to donated new coats and blankets are hand-knit or crocheted scarves, hats or mittens. All colors and sizes are welcomed.
Recipients include elders, young children and everyone in between. This is a great opportunity to try out that new pattern or technique and give your new creation a good home!
All items will be wrapped with a ribbon and have a tag with your name. When you drop off your item(s), please include a note with your name legibly written. You may include a brief note of greeting. These are more than donations – they are gifts from one person to another!
Suggested yarn would be DK/sport weight or heavier. Washable yarn, especially for children’s items is also a plus. Some brands: Cascade, Berroco, Plymouth Encore."
