The Miami Valley Knitting Guild participates in the following charity knitting projects:
Coordinator: Pam Moffat
Details: Lotts Creek Community School is near Hazard, Kentucky. It is an area that has been hard hit by the closing of the coal mines. The school has 200 plus students…. Preschool through 12th and siblings are considered.
We will knit sweaters, hats, cowls, scarves, baby blankets, shawls or lap afghans (almost anything you want to knit for charity) to be delivered to Lotts Creek Community School — School colors Black and Gold — just like Centerville for those of you with Gold and Black gear that your kids don’t want or need or fit any longer! Knitted items should be wool or wool blends.
Coordinator: Robin Hasty, Knitted Knockers of Southwest Ohio
Details: Knitting breast prostheses for women who have undergone a mastectomy. Meet regularly 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Dorothy Lane Market in Springboro, 5:30-7:30. Watch our FaceBook group for other Knocker Knit Ins; like their page for updates. You provide the needles, they provide the yarn.
