Stitches of Love – Help support families in need this winter

August 14 @ 8:00 am - December 1 @ 5:00 pm

As an extension of the Stitches of Love sewing classes, we are adding a component to support families. Donate crocheted or knit 8×8 inch squares in any style, technique or color and in December we will connect them to make blankets for families in time for the holidays. You can participate by donating one or more squares or donating materials so others can create squares. Suggested donated materials include:

  • Yarn of any type, color and any amount
  • Knitting and Crochet accessories
  • Knitting and Crochet books and patterns

Ask family and friends to join. Create and/or collect 8x8in squares and donate them to one of three drop-off centers listed below.

You can also join us at Open Streets Detroit on October 1st from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm 3553 W. Vernor Hwy Detroit, MI 48216 to knit as many squares as you would like!
