Charity Knitting – March 2022 Update

Our Charity Knit Together event that was originally planned for February has been re-scheduled for March 19 Noon – 3PM at No Label Brewing in Katy (5351 1st St, Katy, Texas). Watch Facebook and Website posts for any change in plans. 
 
Parking is pretty easy, there are usually food trucks, sometimes a live band, and a large variety of beers on tap. We will be there with our teal suitcase of charity yarn. Make plans to come out and drop off your worked items, shop for new charity yarn, and catch up with friends from other chapters. KANG and non-KANG members are welcome!
 
Seating is outdoors; so, if it rains, we will reschedule. Watch KANG website, Facebook, or write to knitatnightguildnews@gmail.com for updates.

Call for Charity Items

From our Charity Co-Chairs:

My nephew lives in Berlin and is working directly with Ukraine refugees pouring into Germany. He says the folks are in need and will take anything we have ready: hats, scarves, blankets, mittens, toys, etc.!!
I am putting together a box of items we have already collected to be shipped on Wednesday, March 2nd. Sarah Hartman and I are willing to pick up/collect any items you all may have.
Please PM Marie or Sarah, or send a note to knitatnightguildcharity@gmail.com if you have items to donate and need to coordinate at drop-off/pick-up.
 
Charity Co-Chairs, 
Marie and Sarah

Charity Knitting – February 2022 Update

Hello Charity Knitters (and Crocheters) from your charity co-chairs.
 
The cold months are upon us, and it’s great to know that we delivered bundles of warm hats, scarves, and blankets before this cold snap settled on Houstonians who are less fortunate. A big THANK YOU to everyone’s contribution!
 
Now, mark your calendars: Our next charity knit-together will be Saturday, 26th February from 12noon – 3PM.
 
We are tentatively booked for No Label Brewing Co. in Katy, TX (5351 1st St, Katy, Texas 77493).
Watch Facebook and Website posts for any change in plans.

Charity Knitting – January 2022 Update

Hello Knitters (and Crocheters/hookers) from your charity co-chairs.

First, we would like to congratulate everyone. We partnered with the Eastern Star organization and the local Robin Hood organization and delivered blankets, hats and scarves to homeless right here in downtown Houston. Eastern Star and Robin Hood posted their thanks for our hard work.

Between November and December, Knit at Night Guild has donated 10 blankets, 3 dozen scarves, and 7 dozen hats to the Robin Hood organization.

For those interested, click on the link to the left for a 5 min. YouTube video that the Robin Hood organization put together.

Our next charity knit-together will be in February. Stay tuned to Facebook and newsletters to watch for our next date. In the meantime, contact Sarah or Marie directly at knitatnightguildcharity@gmail.com if your completed charity items need to move out of your house before February.

We collect: hats, scarves, sweaters (human and dog), blankets, mittens, gloves, stuffed toys, socks and slippers for a variety of charities that include:

  • Battered Women’s shelters
  • Children’s charities
  • Neo-natal care
  • Animal shelters
  • Homeless shelters

Happy Knitting! (And Crochet!!)
