Sunday’s Dolls for Zambia workshop was so inspiring! Many, many thanks to Ruth Litchfield of Communities without Borders for being with us. Ruth is committed, enthusiastic, patient, creative and inspiring. Ruth brought dolls she had made, patterns, hints, and stories that motivated and moved us. The children in the orphanages she works with have absolutely nothing and they just love these cuddle dolls. Come on by the store and see for yourself. There’s a basket of dolls, patterns and information about giving money if you would rather participate in that way. We are also grateful to our own Jo Anne Steeves who will be taking the dolls we contribute to Zambia in July. The deadline for bringing finished dolls in is June 30th. They are fun, easy and quick to make. Use up your stash! Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks to Marty, Susie, Barbara, Jo Anne, Meredith, Annie, Chris who attended the workshop.

Thanks to a committed team of volunteers and a community outpouring of donated red and pink squares (and rectangles!), we realized our vision of creating a communally crafted Marriage Equality banner for the Wake Up the Earth festival 2013. We worked on it throughout the month of April and pieced it together during this past week and all day on Saturday. We are so grateful for what we achieved. We will be making a book on display in the shop and the banner itself will be in the shop for the next couple of weeks. Thanks especially go to Matt, Jess, Michael, and Jarel for helping organize and execute this project. Thanks to all the volunteers who donated yarn squares and helped sew this banner together! xo JP Knit & Stitch
