DECEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

THIS NEWSLETTER IS BEING DEDICATED TO
THE DONATION WORKERS FOR ROSEMARY’S GIFT & YARN SHOP.

 I would like to dedicate my December Newsletter to say “thank you” to all my wonderful knitters and crocheters who have worked so hard as part of my “Gathering Hands” donation programs.  All the knitting/crochet projects they have made for 2017 have been delivered and here are only a few pictures of some showing their hard work.

FACEBOOK ……………I’m also on Facebook and I’d love you to “Like” me by searching “Rosemary’s Gift & Yarn Shop”, and clicking “Like”. This will allow you to get updates of what is happening at the shop in between my newsletters! I try to keep up with it as best as I can and I’d love to hear from you in between your visits to the shop.

TWITTER ……………I managed to get myself on twitter and am trying to learn more about it. Remember I’m not a young chick so these new things take me a little time but if you want to get my tweets, I’m under Rosemary Libby and I’d love to read your tweets too!

 

Rosemary’s “Yarn Shop” is the home of “GATHERING HANDS”

Gathering Hands is comprised of knitters and crocheters who share a common goal of helping others through various projects.  You don’t need to live close to be part of Gathering Hands…..Our hands can reach many!

Everyone is invited to be a part of GATHERING HANDS. You can help from your own home or your own knitting/crochet group and if in Maine or within driving distance of the Windham area please drop by and say hello.

“GATHERING HANDS” PROJECTS:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  I am now taking donation for the 2018/2019 seasons.   If you can knit or crochet something to donate to one or all of my programs it will be very much appreciated.

MilitaryChildren
OPERATION MAINE MILITARY FAMILY
: (Now is the time to knit for the Military Families) My former program “Operation Homefront Kids” has been replaced with “Operation Maine Military Family”. The intention of this project is to make a difference in the lives of active duty Maine Military men & women whose families are living in Maine. I’m working together with the Steven’s Avenue Armory to provide knit and crochet items for the families at Christmas time. I can use anything that you think they would like from birth through adult. I have started collecting for the 2018 Christmas and will need all items turned in no later than December 1, 2018 in order that I can get them distributed in time.  This is a nice way to say  “Thank You” for your service.

.Teddy_Bears[1]
OPERATION SUNSHINE BEARS
(I ALWAYS NEED MORE BEAR KNITTERS)
This is such a touching and fun project. I have a free one-seam knit Teddy Bear pattern available at the shop or by email at your request. The bears will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House and Maine Medical Child Life Program Barbara Bush Wing in Portland, Maine, and to Police and Firemen to give to children in crisis. These are wonderful Teddy Bears and I hope you will participate by making them too and help bring a smile to the face of a child. I want to give a very special “Thank You” to Eva McDonald who created this pattern and gave me permission to use and alter it for this project.

RichiesCap
OPERATION RICHIE’S CAP
(IT IS TIME TO THINK LIGHT WEIGHT HATS FOR SUMMER)
This is a project for making chemo caps for cancer patients in memory of my friend, Richie Aaron. I have created a knit and crochet pattern and it’s free when you’ll make a cap to donate. This project continues to be such a success as I receive hats from all over the country from customers that have come by the shop or read about it on-line and mail them on to me. I encourage soft yarns for warm caps during winter months and cotton, bamboo, etc. for summer months to protect against the sun.

OperationWarmHands
OPERATION WARM HANDS: (IN MAINE WINTER COMES SOON AND I WILL NEED MITTENS
)
This is another wonderful project of making mittens for donation for the winter season to those with a need. What a great small project for the knitter with little time and so worth while to a child with cold hands! I invite you to help in this project……it’s a great summer project too!

IF YOU KNIT OR CROCHET……CAN YOU HELP AND BECOME A PART OF GATHERING HANDS?
Just drop me an email: gifts@maine-crafts.com

Together we can make a difference!
