The Guild received an email today (Oct 2) from a producer of a TV Commercial that is seeking a hand-knitted scarf to use in on Saturday.
Anyone have something in their 'charity knitting' or 'gift knitting' stash that might work? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like the contact info.
Here is the request:
Several our our board members have decided not to continue on the board in 2020. We are announcing this now so that you can begin thinking about the future of our guild and how you can contribute. Without board members, the guild will not be able to continue in its present form.
The following positions will be open at our November elections:
See the September newsletter for more information regarding these positions.
Can you help?
I am the Health Education Coordinator at Heartland Health Centers- an FQHC with clinics along the north and northwest sides of Chicago. We have a knitting program that has been running for a few years at our clinic in Rogers Park (1300 W Devon Ave), but our instructor is unable to lead the class starting in the fall! The group normally runs on Tuesdays from 1:15-2:30, year round, and though we have some experienced knitters, most are new to knitting and want to learn how! I was wondering if your group had anyone who would be interested in helping with the program or if you know of any other programs/ people to reach out to?
Please contact us if you, or anyone you know, can help. We will put you in touch with the requestor.
WCKG recently received a request from a parent who need help in repairing a child's well-loved toy.
If you can help, please email WCKG and we will connect you with the parent.
