After School Knitting Class

We’ve been teaching a group of kids how to knit over the past few weeks. They have learned all about yarn, how to finger knit, and how to cast on. And some have already mastered the knit stitch!

We’re very excited with their progress and we’ll be updating you with more of their success in the coming weeks.

Halos of Hope Big Buzz

We donated over $250 dollars as a group in about 3 days!Not enough for me to shave my beard, but great job everyone!

$20,000 was raised during the whole event! You can read more about what happened at the Halos of Hope website.
