Knit-A-thon Preparation Help

The Knit-a-Thon, Alice Birney’s handwork fundraiser, could use some help in preparing for the fundraising event, which officially kicks off in late January 2020. More information about the fundraiser will be sent home in December.

  1. Do you know anyone looking to rehome, or de-stash their yarn collection? If so, consider donating it to the Knit-a-Thon. We are looking for worsted weight yarn, that is washable. No fancy yarns, please.

  2. Do you have connections (great relationship with the owner, get tremendous discounts, etc) to any of our local yarn shops, or craft stores? If so, we’d like to talk to you!

  3. Looking for a fun activity to help the school? We need volunteers to take the skeins and roll them into small yarn balls for the students to knit into squares.

If you can help with any of these items, please contact Amanda Paskey, the Knit-a-Thon parent coordinator at
