Join us in making bears for The Mother Bear Project, a charity organization “dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations, by giving them a gift of love in the form of a hand-knit or crocheted bear.”
If you don’t already have the pattern, we will have it available in the shop. It is only $5 and includes three versions: knit flat, knit in the round, and crochet! Plus, we will have special small balls of washable wool available for sale before and during the event. Perfect for customizing your bear’s outfit!
The bear patterns are simple and perfect for beginners, but you should already know basic knitting or crocheting to participate.
Later, when you have finished your bear, just come back to the shop to drop it off and we will ship it out for you! Each bear requires a $3 shipping fee. 100% of the proceeds will go The Mother Bear Project.
“The simple gift of a hand-knit bear with a tag signed by the knitter has touched children with the message that they are unconditionally loved."
