Fibre Philanthropy: Knitting for the Homeless

Every Wednesday night during the Stitch ‘n Bitch we also host Fibre Philanthropy. People of all ages come and knit scarves, hats, mitts & socks to help Toronto’s homeless survive the winter. All finished items are given to the Wychwood Open Door Drop-in Centre for distribution.

We contribute FREE instruction & patterns for these projects and the yarn is also free, donated by generous groups and individuals. All you need to do is bring a pair of needles (the bigger the better, around 9mm or 10mm are good) or you can pick up a reasonably priced set at the store.

So come on down! You can learn how to knit & make a difference!
