From the Heart, Fredericksburg “Waste Not” Workshop, Yarn Swap
and Fredericksburg Donation Daze

Date/Time: August 1st

Place: Ruritan Building, 5994 Plank Rd, Fredericksburg  (Between Battlefield Dental and the Fire Station just east of Andora Drive on Rt. 3.)

We will have yarn, patterns and help available. We are going to do a yarn swap – bring those skeins you don’t like and swap for something you would like to work with.

Is there something you need help with? Bring it with you and we will find someone to help you. Something you want to learn? Let me know asap and we will try to add a class for that topic or find someone to assist you.

See how leftovers can make up into useful beautiful items. All items completed will be delivered to various groups in the community.

The concept for the Fredericksburg Donation Daze is the same as Richmond. We have many items which have been donated to From the Heart but which we can’t really make good use of in our work of serving our communities. A few of the items we will have available are knitting needles, pattern books and magazines, and a variety of very nice yarns. The Donation Daze event means the suggested donation for each and every skein of yarn in the event will be $2.00.

Come and help yourself to something nice and help From the Heart not only clean up the supply but have a few more dollars available to purchase yarn we can use to make items we can donate to those who need them.

Bring your tools and a dish to share and come for a fun filled day! You can come for the day or just an hour or two, just don’t miss the fun.

Plates, napkins, cups, bowls, utensils, coffee, hot tea and bottled water will be provided. The building has a large kitchen for our use. We will need both a setup and clean up team so let us know which you are able to help with.

If you need more information, have questions, would like to volunteer to help, or have some knitting or crocheting technique you would like to demonstrate, contact Pam Greswolde at pegreswolde@comcast.net, or phone at 540.661.7967.

We will have 2 classes at this event:

  • Lacy Crocheted Christmas ornaments – you only need to bring a size G or H size hook, scissors and a blunt eye needle.
  • Single crochet Waffle Weave stitch – you will need a J, K or L crochet hook.

Everyone is welcome. Bring your friends and relatives. We hope to see you there!
