Crazy for Knitting!

My students need needles and yarn to get them through the summer!

My Students

My students love knitting! Every week after school I teach a knitting club to 18 kids. None of them had picked up needles before this fall, and now they are all creating great things!

Our school is a high-poverty inner-city school.

I teach full-time art here during the school day. We offer lots of after-school enrichment, and I teach knitting to a small group of students every week. The kids are really excited about knitting, but most can't afford their own supplies.

My Project

The after-school program provides for some of the yarn and needles and I have paid for some myself. However, I will have to collect them in the spring because most of the needles belong to the school. I would love to give my students their very own needles and yarn to take with them for the summer! It would be such a special gift for them.

My students learned to knit quickly and have knitting fever!

What a great, positive opportunity for these inner-city kids. Please allow them to continue knitting throughout the summer by giving them this great gift!
