Lastly, as a note that we need to make, if you receive the WUP newsletter via e-mail, please note that the address at the bottom of the e-mail is NOT a drop off point, but rather a private residence. All of our drop off points are clearly outlined here.

We have a lot to do, both locally and globally!

3 Great Things to be Thankful for

There are 3 great things to be thankful for that we here at WUP want to tell you about.  It’s getting colder outside, and we are moving things into high gear to prepare for upcoming scarf-bombings.  Here’s what’s happening.

Number 1.

Early birds, we are having another morning Sit and Stitch at the Speckled Sheep on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 10am.  Bring a current project, or start a new one!  RSVP here.

Number 2.

Night owls, your turn!  Come on out to the evening Sit and Stitch at the Speckled Sheep on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 5pm.  Again, bring a project, or being anew!  RSVP here.

Number 3.

Lastly, and this one is awesome.  Ewebiquitous, a local yarn store located in Lititz, PA, USA is hosting a wonderful drop off for WUP.  Taken from their Facebook page:

 

Ewebiquitous is partnering with local charity The Wrap Up, Project this season and we need you and your skills (any skill level is welcome)!

Instead of ornaments and tinsel, we’ll be decorating our Christmas tree with your handmade donations of hats and scarves. Every single item will go directly to The Wrap Up organization to help warm a local person in need through the winter.

We will be accepting the donations between November 18th and Christmas–start now so we can fill our tree with warmth (and create a beautiful window display)!

How cool is that?!  We love getting the support of to two of our awesome local yarn stores.  Thank you both!  And thanks to all of your for your support, too!  We are thankful for all of you!
