Knitting 4 Peace
Have you ever thought of knitting as a Social Justice activity? MUUF Peace Knitting Circle starts Tuesday Jan 16, 2018, 10-noon,
and will meet every first and third Tuesday mornings. Carol Alt has been active with an organization called Knitting4Peace for a number of years and has inspired AJ Wolff to start a knitting group here at MUUF with plans to join the Knitting4Peace Organization founded back in 2006 that has delivered requested items to more than 122,555 people living in communities across the United States and 70 countries around the world.
Knitting 4 Peace is dedicated to knitting together the global Beloved Community. They do their work one person at a time … one stitch at a time … one delivery at a time … one day at a time. How does this work? By knitting needed items and sending to the people who need them, here and around the world. Check out their website and learn more, with patterns, current needs and photos.
At our first knitting circle meeting we will share more info and ideas. So, join us. If you have never knitted before that is ok we will teach you. Carol, AJ, and Bernita are all long-time knitters and happy to teach you. AJ started knitting by her grandmother’s side at a very early age making doll blankets, (no need for winter scarf in San Francisco) and by middle school age knitting sweaters. Small
blankets or scarves are great starter projects for the beginner. If you have your own project you would like to work on and share in the fun, please come as well. Everyone welcome.
