We are resuming our Knitting for Charity schedule on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 from 8 to 10 p.m. at the home of Theda Zuckerman, 610 West End Avenue. The need is now greater than ever as there are so many more terror victims.

We recently got a very big donation of yarn so there is lots to knit. Please let us know if you can attend. And if you can’t attend but want to keep knitting, we’ll drop off yarn for you to continue.

The need in Israel is greater than so please make very effort to knit blankets for new babies and hats for the IDF.

If you need any yarn for either IDF hats or baby blankets, please contact paulagantz@gmail.com. We now have stock of both light and dark colors.

A new feature has been added to the group. A short shiur and discussion will be led by a different group member each month. Please join us and participate.

For further information, contact Paulagantz@gmail.com

The gift is an afghan knitted by members of the YIWS Knitting for Charity Group. Members knitted the squares which were then bound into a colorful afghan.
