Donation Programs – Gathering Hands

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 by 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:

 

OPERATION SUNSHINE BEARS(I ALWAYS NEED BEARS)
This is such a touching and fun project. I have a free one-seam knit or crochet Teddy Bear pattern available at the shop or by email at your request. The bears will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House, Maine Medical Child Life Program Barbara Bush Wing in Portland, Fire Stations and Police Stations in Maine.  These are wonderful Teddy Bears and I hope you will participate by making them to help bring a smile to the face of a child in need.

I want to give a very special “Thank You” to Eva McDonald who created the knit pattern and gave me permission to use and alter it for this project.

OPERATION RICHIE’S CAP
(Don’t forget men and boys need hats too!)
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 for a simple beanie style hat 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 and don’t forget the men…they need hats too!

OPERATION WARM HANDS: (MITTENS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED WHEN YOU LIVE IN MAINE!)
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! They also make a great summer project and I invite you to help in this project!
