Seaside Knitwits Meets August 19th, please join us!

We are knitting and crocheting hats for Boston children (sizes infant through 18 years old) in need. Seaside Knitwits is the recently, and loosely formed, Manchester Public Library group that is anyone interested in helping with this endeavor. Monthly drop ins at the Manchester Public Library will occur for us to see how much we have made, get tips about creating hats, share yarn, patterns, etc and touch base. All hats will be mailed in November for Caps for Beantown (a registered 501c3 group) to receive and distribute in time for cold weather. Our next drop in is Monday, August 19th, 4 PM anyone is welcome to join in and spread the word to other friends. You do not need to attend each monthly drop in, but stop by for the ones you can. For more information, email Sara Collins. Thank you.
