More Well Dressed Babies in the Milwaukee Area

Once again we have made sure that  Milwaukee Area babies in the Christ Child Society are at the top of their game with our really sweet sweaters, booties, hats and blankets.  Raffle winners received knitting supplies, books and gift cards to local yarn shops.  Thank you Shelly and everyone who participated and helped make our Baby Shower a success.




Jane K had a very clever way to display the sweaters.
You can't have a Baby Shower without treats!

The Final Result- Beautiful Yarn Bowls

They look great.  This might have opened up some ideas for retirement hobbies.






Decorating Yarn Bowls

The Knitting Knook hosted an event for us that had some of our members digging deep for creative ideas.  It looks like they were successful!  They are all different and pretty attractive.  The bowls are a nice size too.  I have seen some pretty large ones that could have been fruit bowls.  Participants also received  a 10% discount on purchases.


All of This Could Have Been Yours!

Once again our Auction was a success!  Lots of bidders and lots of buyers.  Thank you  to everyone who participated.  Our Local Yarn Shops generously donated gift certificates,  beautiful yarns, needles and accessories.  Please support these shops when you need to buy great patterns or spectacular  yarns.
