Hi everyone! It’s time to kick off our ELK Studio – From the Heart Spring/2016 Crochet Charity Event! Our winter event was a huge success, and I know this event will be a smash hit too. The ELK Studio Crocheter’s Group is an amazing group of people who come together and give back. I’m always honored by their giving hearts but we all know crocheters are giving people anyway don’t we?
Tracy is our organizer for the event once again. When we delivered the hats to the Emory Winship Cancer center in Atlanta, Georgia for the winter event, we had lunch afterwards and talked about the group and how everyone came together to give back. Getting to see the facilities where people could come in and get their hats was amazing too. Tracy and I thought it would be just as great if we could give to the Pediatric side of the Emory Winship Cancer center this time. I hope you’ll jump on board and join us!
I’m asking for you to only make ONE item so it won’t be too hard on you to get it done…… but think about it for a second, if a lot of us were to make just one hat, scarf or blanket….it would certainly add up!
Here is what they need:
- hats (Child-Adult Size)
- lap blankets
Here are some guidelines for you:
- Please remember to use acrylic or cotton yarn.
- NO WOOL ITEMS.
- Place your items in a zip lock bag. (A note with encouraging words would be wonderful)!
- Please keep your furry buddies (cats or dogs) away from the item you will be donating.
If you need some inspiration for hats, I have a collection of hats my fellow designers thought would be good for chemo patients too.
