it is amazing in New York today – grey and cool, the weather shifts to September. And so we are revving up again for October – Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Last week’s get together of volunteers was really great. In planning for volunteer activities, it was really difficult finding a free location and also figuring out a way to get all of the fabric and yarns there. I finally decied to keep things simple for myself and do the get togethers at my home. However, living in New York, I have a small apartment. The lobby would have to do, and so I set up the bins of yarn in the lobby waiting patiently for volunteers to arrive. I had sent out Evites to folks throughout the New York area and was prepared to be there from 1:00 – 6:00 pm.
At 2:30 on a rainy Sunday, I began to face the daunting possibility of having to create all the items this season myself, when all of a sudden Sheila from Sheila Crochetz came, cell phone in hand, making sure she had the correct address. After that the volunteers kept coming.
All in all we have a group of eight people, knitters and crocheters alike. They used wools, wool blends, silk and cotton skeins and much more to create for the next month.
We could use more volunteers so if you are interested, please contact me at email@example.com to come by and pick up some yarn to work on!
