As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I spent last Saturday rocking and knitting for Warm The World. Emily of Colorado Fiber Arts organized a fantastic event. The sidewalk in front of her store was lined with rockers:
One of the local TV stations showed up to interview Nan, our founder:
As I’ve mentioned before, WTW is a non-profit organization with 501-(c)3 designation and operates solely on donations. There are no paid staff members. Everything (yarn, patterns, needles, hooks) is donated to WTW.
Our first rock-a-thon was a huge success:
Money donations: $1010.26
145 pounds of yarn
1 pair felted slippers
10 adult hats
5 helmet liners
23 kids hats
6 adult afghans
13 baby afghans
Thank you to everyone who donated to Warm The World. If you would like to donate, you can do so here.
If you are in the area, you can drop off donations (yarn, needles, money, squares, etc.) at Colorado Fiber Arts.
