To help support the disaster-relief aide so desperately needed in Japan, and other parts of the world, Aylin Bener and Claire Wudowsky will teach a Crochet For Knitters class on Sunday, April 17 from 1 pm to 4 pm at Aylin’s Woolgatherer (directions can be found at the end of this note) 100% of the proceeds from this class will go to Doctors Without Borders.
Do you have a fear of knitting patterns that include a few crochet stitches? If so, this class is for you. In this class you will learn basic crochet stitches and edgings, and how to use crochet to embellish necklines, button bands, and edges of garments. Once you try it, you’ll never be afraid of crocheting again. The cost of this class is $50.00/student.
If you cannot attend on that date and you would like to donate to this amazing organization; you are welcome to send a check to the shop and we’ll provide you with a copy of the handouts from this class.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) http://http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org
From the MSF website:
“MSF has sent medical teams to support the government-led earthquake and tsunami response in Japan. Our teams are running mobile clinics and conducting needs assessments, which will determine the full scope of MSF’s response.
At this point, MSF USA is drawing on unrestricted donations given to MSF to fund our efforts, and MSF USA is not accepting donations specifically earmarked for recovery efforts in Japan.”
Therefore, the proceeds from this class will go to the MSF general fund.
