It’s that time of year again… gearing up for the Baaad Anna’s 7th annual Knit-a-Thon in support of local women’s shelters. This year we are going to celebrate it on Sunday Dec. 13th from 1pm onwards.
Participate in any number of ways:
- Donate any skeins of yarn that others can use to for charity knitting.
- Come and knit with us on the afternoon of the 13th to whip up a quick knit for donation.
- Donate any newly knit or unloved-and-in-good-condition hand knits such as mitts, hats, cowls, scarves and sweaters on any day leading up to the 13th, or on the day-of.
The charity knit-a-thon will start at 1pm and go right through until closing.
We will also be hosting a Christmas potluck on that evening from 6-8pm… come share a warm bevvie and snacks with us, and we will have some treats and prizes throughout the evening.
Someone in attendance at the end of the night will win a $40 gift certificate for their post-holiday gift-to-self!
We will also be hosting a 12-days of Christmas bonus from the 14th to the 25th, so keep an eye on our blog over the course of the month for some fun surprises!
Donations of yarn can be dropped at the store anytime during our regular business hours. Any unused yarns will also be donated to local school knitting groups! For more information contact Baaad Anna’s 604-255-2577 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also for those of you with kids off from school before the holidays, we will be hosting a kids felting workshop on the morning of Tuesday December 22nd. One hour lesson $25 includes all materials. Choose from:
9-10am: Child and Parent Intro to Needle Felting (age 5+)
