The Feminist Craft Circle
All levels of crafters welcome!
All events take place the first Tuesday of the month at 7 PM.
Sept. 5 – Red Scarf Project – Scarves in bold, unisex colors for kids in college who have aged out of the foster care system; scarves are included in larger care packages the organization sends out for Valentine’s Day each year. So, yes, red is the preferred color, but they’d rather have a blue or green scarf then no scarf at all.
Oct. 2 - Sarah's Circle - Make socks, hats, and gloves for Sarah’s Circle, a local organization that serves homeless and struggling women. Sarah’s Circle is a refuge for women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. By providing life necessities, housing, case management, and clinical and social services, they assist women in rebuilding both emotionally and physically and realizing their unique potential. Sarah’s Circle provides services to more than 900 women a year.
Nov. 7 - Make decorations for Women & Children First for the December holidays. Yarnbombing with a holiday theme, inside the store and out. We think elves on the lamp posts up and down Clark Street would look really great!!
Dec. 5 - Open Knit (to allow people to work on projects/gifts they already have underway)
Jan. 2 – Knit, crochet, quilt, or sew a cage blankets for a dog or (most particularly) cat in a local animal shelters, such as Tree House, Harmony House, PAWS Chicago, and Red Door.
