The Wrap Up Project has a new logo! You can see it below and watch for it to pop up all over the website.
The new logo was designed by Quinn Waltman, who is a student for the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design located here in Lancaster, PA, USA. Quinn did this as a part of class focusing on designing and donating work to a local community organization as a part of outreach.
As always, please connect with us on Facebook and Instagram, so you never miss a tagging party or scarf-bombing in both Lancaster, PA, and Schuykill Haven, PA. We hope to see you at one of our events, soon!
Schuykill Haven, PA, USA is now a part of the Wrap Up Project family! On Tuesday, October 17, 2018, a group of knitters, crocheters, and weavers set out to scarf-bomb Schuykill Haven with two baskets full of scarves, hats, and cowls, about 100 items created to keep a new area warm.
Lorraine Felker and her group of yarn crafters from the Walk In Art Center Knitters Group in Schuykill Haven made the connection to WUP through charter Lancaster member, Bethany Storms. We are glad to have Lorraine and her enthusiastic group of yarn artists as a part of WUP.
WUP founder Angelia Reed, Media Guru Jenn Dixon, and Kyra, who has been at ALL of Lancaster’s scarf-bombings, made the trip up to Schuykill Have to lend support and help out.
Check out the photos here of the the event!
Oh, here’s the beginning of something great, as Schuykill Haven gets started with their scarf-bombing.

Good grief, it’s cold outside. My dog loves it, but many people don’t. I’m one of them. I tend to wrap myself up in handmade knits and bundle up, as my dog sniff and frolics outside.
It’s also a stark reminder that many people in the Lancaster area don’t have a warm place to go. Thankfully, many churches and civic centers open their doors during the cold weather and offer a warm place to sleep. It’s also a time when we need to be reminded that our work here at The Wrap, Project! IS important. By providing warm scarves and hats for anyone exposed to the elements, we are doing a small part in keeping Lancaster County warm.
That being said, let’s get down to business, and that is a reminder of January events. Here’s what’s happening! Click on the links to be taken to each events’s Facebook events page so you can RSVP and let us know you’ll be in attendance.
Well, Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday is upon us, and we here at WUP hope you got some great deals today! In light of this day, we want to have a Black Friday Events Special, or just really let you know what’s coming up with WUP in the next few weeks as we all prepare for the holidays.
Ewebiquitious is a knitting shop in Lititz, PA, USA, and is doing a great project to collect scarves and other handmade cold weather items for WUP. They are encouraging people to bring in their items to decorate their Christmas tree. All items will them be donated to WUP. Here’s more 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)!
Head on over to their Facebook page so you can learn more and get started in getting that tree covered in scarves!
We hope your Black Friday shopping has been productive. We also hope you are doing well on your holiday crafting! Best wishing, and keep and eye out here, on Facebook, and on our mailing list for updates.

Lots of great spots to hang scarves and hats! –Media Guru Jenn) Meet in front of the library. After the library, it’s off to Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, PA.
