Letter from Lois – May 2018

SOCK YARN!!

So much sock yarn!

So little time!

Bring your sock knitting and crocheting skills, your size #2 or #3 knitting needles or size D crochet hook (or size with which you are comfortable using with sock weight yarn) and favorite sock pattern or use one of our simple patterns.

From the Heart will provide the sofas, arm chairs and the SOCK WEIGHT YARN!

We are planning to stitch as many pairs of nice socks as we possibly can during the months of May and June, in time for the RAM trip to Wise County in early July 2018.

As you will remember, Rural Area Medical doctors and dentists travel to Wise County, Virginia each year to offer their services free to those in need.  These patients will be coming not only from Virginia but from Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Ohio as well.

You may also remember, to benefit these folks we at From the Heart send bags and bags of our stitched items and gently used clothing from our closets.  This year we would like to include our hand stitched socks.

Our “kick-off” day for this stitch along will be Saturday, May 12th, 2018.  We will be meeting at the shop from 10 until 2 that day to get this rolling.  After this initial meeting we’d love to have you come stitch with us on Wednesdays and/or Saturdays until the end of June deadline.  If you like, bring a few snacks or treats to share…stitching always seems to create an appetite! 🙂

We look forward to having you join us for a fun start to a very worthwhile program.  We want to try to keep as many feet warm as possible when the weather in the mountains turns cold in the fall.

Hope to see you soon!
