    Contact: Amelia     abuccarelli@wlsmail.org
   

Last holiday season the Eastchester Public Library donated multiple blankets to Project Linus, which distributes handmade blankets to critically ill children that were made from squares created by our patrons. Teens and adults alike came together to learn basic knitting, new techniques and to put the blankets together.

Don’t know how to knit? No problem! Beginners through advanced knitters are welcome. Eastchester’s resident knitting expert Dottie is happy to teach you!
Each session will be an opportunity to work on your square, learn to knit, share techniques, ask questions and begin to put together our blankets. Yarn will be provided at each session, but feel free to bring/use your own as well. We have a few sets of #5 Knitting Needles, but if you have your own, please bring those along. If you start a square, but don’t have time to finish it, that is still a huge help, as long as you drop it off before a session, so we can finish it. You do not need to attend all 3 sessions to participate.


Want to help make our blankets but can’t attend? We welcome donations of knitted squares (7 in by 7in) ideally knitted with a #5 needle, by Friday, December 15th. Just drop them off at the Circulation Desk!

        There are 28 spaces available.
