Handmade for the Homeless - March 2011
Washington DCJCC

100 hats  girls knitting

Each year for the MCCCS December 25th Day of Service (D25), we gift wrap hats, scarves, socks and slippers for the homeless in the Washington DC community.

Join fellow knitters and crocheters to make handmade goodies for a great cause!  Whether you're an experienced knitter or crocheter or just interested in learning, we hope you'll join us at a Handmade for the Homeless!  Our goal is to contribute as many warm winter items as possible to distribute as gifts at D25. We know December is still 10 months away but we want to start off the year on a warm note!

December 25th seems far away but it will be here before we know it. We hope you will help add to our collection.

What Should I Bring?
Please bring your own needles/crochet hooks.  
If you are learning to knit/crochet or looking for a great project, please bring:
#17 needles (circular or straight)
3 skeins of "worsted weight" yarn
A pattern for a simple hat will be provided for you. Please bring patterns to share if you have them.

If you have questions about this event please contact Sheryl at  

If you can't join us in person, join us in spirit by knitting or crocheting:

Other items to keep people warm and toasty in the cold winter months
