FW: knity a thon for charity at pleasant home
FW: knity a thon for charity at pleasant homeThis was sent to one of the homeschool groups I belong to and thought our knitting group might be interested in it too. There are a couple attachments (I don’t know if yahoo will put them through or not) for info and registration. If they don’t go through I can always print them out and bring them to our next gathering.

please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested. hopefully you will be able to open the document.
basically..a friend with a local stitch craft group based in a church in oak park presented the idea of having a knitting open house where anyone could drop in and knit, crochet (or learn-free workshops would be offered) chat, nosh, relax, rock.... here at pleasant home. it would be held within the hours of 9 am-7 pm with a reception and gospel concert later on. (i have heard this choir-they are great!) the finished handmade items would then be blessed and donated to various charities.
may 31st was open and i had nothing better to do (yeah, right, you know i feel this is worth it!) so i said, "sure". registration is pretty easy, but if you would rather not deal with it you can just call or email me and let me know if you want to come. we will get breakfast and lunches and muchies donated and maybe even some rocking chairs for the front porch. of course the kettle will be on all day with that gorgeous todd and holland tea...iced tea if the weather is warm... and coffee for those who gotta have coffee.... please consider coming over for this, or donating hand knit items to the cause. and please, tell your friends! remember we are situated on a great big park surrounded by a fence. if the day is fine i will put out stuff for the kids to do...frizbees, hula hoops, hacky sack,sidewalk chalk, giant bubbles and the like.
contact me with any questions..( info lined up under sig.)
