Fiber for Friends

Thank you to all that made yarn and needle donations to Fiber for Friends!

The response was overwhelming and I am still sorting through everything and delivering yarn to the women at Fort McCoy. They have been so excited to receive the supplies enjoy the stress relieving benefits that knitting and crocheting can provide.

This week we will have our first organized groups and lessons at the activity centers.

I am still looking for more volunteers!

If you can commit to at least 4 Tuesdays to help with the groups it would be greatly appreciated.

Every day more guests from Afghanistan leave Fort McCoy and travel to their relocation destinations. This week I am told that there are only about 5,000 Afghan guests remaining.

We will continue to offer yarn, supplies, and knitting/crochet groups and lessons until there is no longer enough women that want to participate. We have enough yarn & supplies.
