The Arlington-Fairfax Elks Lodge is hosting a Youth Carnival for the impoverished community on July 28. Heart to Hand will be there to provide information about how to get involved in knitting and crocheting for charity with our group. In addition to passing out flyers, we will also be providing simple knitting and crochet lessons to small groups of children and adults and some offering giveaways. The giveaways include providing free kits to the community to make snuggles and a raffle with knitting/crochet supplies. If someone who already knows how to knit or crochet they can knit or crochet a snuggle at the tent or they can knit or crochet a few rows on a "community" snuggle. The hope is that we will have a finished community snuggle or two by the end of event. The tent will have a completed sample snuggle so folks can see what a finished one looks like.
There will be tables and chairs available at the tent. If you'd like to come by and knit/crochet for a while or assist with giving lessons that would be great. You can come by for an hour or stay the whole day. It's up to you. The event is rain or shine and we will be outdoors so please bring plenty of water and dress accordingly.
Additional information will be provided closer to the date.
