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!

October Scarf-Bombing Wrap-up

Last night on October 24, 2017, the Wrap Up! Project ventured into Lancaster and Columbia to scarf-bomb.  It may have been a warm day, but the night was cool, and people were out and about.  It was a great time to have a scarf-bombing!

Cub Scout 58 from Willow Street came out and lent their time and talents to distributing scarves last night.  Thanks, guys!  You did a great job!  We always welcome groups and members of the community to come out and help.

All of our volunteers who came out last night did a great job!  Even the furry ones!  Thank you guys for your help.

Here are a few more photos of the scarf-bombing around Penn Square and Columbia Presbyterian Church.  Read more in Erin Negly’s great article today in LNP!

 

As for me, Jenn the Tech Gal, I was walking to work today and saw two people happily walking along with two of the scarves that were put out last night, tags fluttering in the breeze.  It felt so good to see that!  We are making a difference.  YOU are making a difference.  Keep up the good work!


Have you heard about our upcoming event at The Speckled Sheep on October 31, 2017?  WUP will be having a Sit and Stitch, and you are invited!  LNP will be there to cover the event, so we would love it if you’d come out!  Be sure to RSVP and let us know you are coming on our Facebook event page.
