Our group was started in March of 2010 and we knit, crochet or sew items that we can donate to different organizations.
Our main project is to make caps, scarves and lap blankets for patients at local Cancer Centers in NH that are undergoing chemotherapy. So far we have donated 510 caps, 50 scarves and 38 lap blankets.
In October of 2010 Stitching up the World made 175 caps for 104 Transportation Company which is an Army Troop stationed in Afghanistan and based out of Columbus Georgia. Their missions include delivering equipment, food, vehicles and weapons to other locations that are in need. This project will keep the men and woman warm while they are serving our country. Thank you for all those that choose to serve our country and for everything you do each and every day!
Stitching up the World has also donated 44 caps to New Horizons in Manchester NH which provides food and shelter to those in need.
We are always looking for more volunteers to join our group. All levels of needlework welcome. We love to teach volunteers who have always wanted to learn to knit or crochet. Each month on the 3rd Thursday we meet from 7-9 at the Smyth Public Library in Candia, NH to drop off items we have made in the past month, share patterns, teach new volunteers and munch on a few snacks while we socialize.
Donations of yarns, or other supplies are always appreciated as this project is ongoing by the generous donations of individuals and companies. If donating wool or wool blend yarn please have it separate as we are not able to use wool on certain projects.
