Giving Back: Knitting and Crocheting for Charity

This year the Ashe Library’s Get Crafty classes  will feature crocheting and knitting projects for charity.  “Get Crafty” is a resource group for those interested in crocheting and knitting that meets at the library from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. every second Saturday of each month. These are monthly hands-on sessions and are offered for all ages and skill levels. If you’re a creative and passionate person, come join us and “Get Crafty!”  Crocheting and knitting for charity is also a great time to learn a new skill. Whether you’re planning to crochet a blanket or knit a hat, you can find a pattern that challenges you, while simultaneously helping someone in need.   Projects decided on for the year 2015 can be found on the library's website program guide: Get Crafty.  The current project, Special Olympic Scarves will go to a Wilkes County team who is competing in a regional basketball series event on February 7.  There are 41 athletes on the team and hopes are to send each one a handmade scarf. 

The library is currently taking yarn donations for these community craft projects and would like to thank all who contribute or participate in helping to make our world a better place.
