Hello knitters,

Here is a great cause to donate your craft supplies or to get them, too! This is the message from the local charity group that helps African grandmothers who are raising children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

We are having our annual Fabric & Yarn Sale in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers Campaign again this year on April 28 at Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Dartmouth. We are looking for donations of  fabric, yarn, sewing, quilting and knitting supplies, notions and craft supplies.  We would also love to have your knitters come and purchase yarn for the various projects that you do.

Art on Argyle

PBJ Design is back at it again with yarn-bombing! This time around, they will be yarn-bombing Argyle Street, as a method of beautifying the construction-filled street and supporting the businesses during the streetscaping.
Each week, we bring a group down to a restaurant for a social, and then head outside to yarn-bomb the construction fence outside of the restaurant! Feel free to bring knitted or crocheted works, or just bring yourself and create the yarn art right on the fence.
Each event runs from 6-9 pm, with some snacks and yarn included. Join us!
Event schedule:
Wednesday, August 30th: Economy Shoe Shop
Tuesday, September 19th: The Bitter End
Tuesday, September 26th: The Loose Cannon

Thank you to all of the wonderful donations for the yarn-bombing event in Downtown Halifax this past Sunday. PBJ Design, with the help of Assemblage and Downtown Halifax, added yarn flowers to a fence on Sackville street to beautify the construction-filled area. The street is much brighter with the flowers. And people walking by were very interested in the project!

Check out some photos of the event – and be sure to walk by the fence to see it in person!

Gritty to pretty, eh?
