Knitty City has been invited to be a part of the celebration at:
September 27, Thursday, 2012
Bryant Park 9am – 6pm
We're so excited! The Campaign for Wool rang us up last week and asked us to join in and knit in Bryant Park when they hold their big Celebration for British Wool event on Thursday, September 27. They plan on having at least 30 sheep there to illustrate what makes wool so fabulous. Please plan on coming by - we'd love to see you and the sheep would love it, too.
Talking About Flocks (of Support)
Once again, Knitty City will be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, Sunday, October 21st. Please consider joining our group, as we join the thousands of others who walk every year in Central Park, to demonstrate commitment to breast cancer prevention and research. We are also looking for team leaders. We would love to have you be a part of our annual effort. Let's all walk together. For more information, please go here: makingstrides.acsevents.org
