Fiber Friends…
In June we continuing making items for Newborns in Need.  This organization collects items to help babies survive the first few months of life.  Did you know that in the US there are approximately 2,000 babies born into poverty each day?  While you can certainly bring by items that babies need such as diapers, wipes, baby wash, etc, knitted and crocheted items seem to help the most.  Perhaps that’s    because the parents know that loving hands have given a gift from the heart.  Please join us as we help out our local East TN chapter.  If you wish to donate other items, their wish list includes: pacifiers, bottles, socks/booties, small toys/rattles/loveys, wipes, Ivory soap, receiving blankets, blankets/quilts (should be minimum of 28”.)

What our customers are saying about us...

Sandy, finding your shop when I moved to Knoxville has made all the difference in my adjustment to being here. At 76, life gets more difficult and getting to know your knitters and you, being a small part of the Preemie Cap Challenge, and taking classes has made my days much more rewarding.  Thank you.

Christmas 2012
We donated 130 hats plus a few other items to the boys and girls attending Eaton Elementary School. Here is the response we received:

"Oh my!!!!!  Sandy, that is amazing!  Thanks to all your folks for helping keep these precious little heads warm!"

Hi Sandy I know you don't know me but I personally wanted to thank you and your ladies for your donation of hats, gloves, sweaters for Two Rivers Church Eaton School Christmas blessing yesterday.   Your donation was a big hit for the families. Everyone loved the hats.  They were beautiful and what a great job of knitting your company does. When I was told we were getting your donation we were totally thrilled to say the least.  God bless you and have a very Merry Christmas!
