It May Be Spring….

…..but we still need scarves!

As we can all identify for those of us who live in Pennsylvania right now, the weather can change on a dime, meaning, it can and probably will get cold again.  With that being said, we still need scarves!  The evenings can still be cold, and the days can be, too.

You can do it!  Get crafting and whip up some scarves?  Have some and need to drop them off?  Click here for our drop off points.

Be sure to spread the word that we need scarves, too!


WUL Season 3 Preparations

We’ve got a lot to talk about, people, as we are getting underway for WUL Season 3 scarf-bombings.  Preparations need to be made, and we need YOUR help!

As for right now, we have 119 scarves, 236 hats, 1 pair of fingerless mitts, and 1 knitted ear muff.  We would like to have about 300 scarves to get the season going, so we can put 100 out at each location.  We need 180 more scarves!

In the meantime, let’s start with what needs to be done with WUL Season 3 preparations.

Ephrata, PA

WUL is looking to start scarf-bombing in Ephrata, PA every other month during the season, as long as we have donations.  What we need in Ephrata is:

  • A Business as a Donation Drop-off Point.  We need a good business in Ephrata to act as a drop-off point for donations.  Do you own a business there or have a suggestion?  Let us know at
  • A Point Person.  We are looking for a volunteer to act as a point person for Ephrata to pick up donated items, arrange for drop-off locations, and find good scarf-bombing locations.  Feel like you are a good fit for this volunteer position?  Email us at!

Planning Committee

Next on the agenda, is that WUL is looking for volunteers to be on a planning committee.  This would be a monthly meeting, and a desire to help plan the direction of WUL, such as helping us become a non-profit, raising money, how we can have an income stream, and expanding the project.  If you think you fit the bill, e-mail us at

Other News

If you need yarn, WUL has a small stash that would be gladly given to someone to make scarves with.  Contact us at if you are interested.  Remember, Lancaster Creative Reuse, and The Art of Recycle in Ephrata, PA are excellent places to get cheap yarn that would be perfect for scarves!

Second, we would like to thank the Red Rows Knitting Guild for their recent monetary donation!  We appreciate it!

That’s the new you can use for WUL as of right now.  Please consider not only donating scarves, but your time as well.  We need YOU to be involved and active in WUL.


In case you missed it, we need scarves!

Seriously, we do!  We’re scarf bombers!  We need scarves to leave out for people to take in the cold weather months, and it’s now August.  September will be here before we know it, and then fall, and then the third season of WUL begins in October.  We need scarves!

We have plenty of hats, and we like that, really.  We appreciate it!  But, scarves are out main deal, and we are running short on them.  So, get your fingers knitting, crocheting, weaving, loom knitting, or no-sewing!

Drop off locations are listed here, and they are scattered throughout the county.  Most won’t accept items until October, but that doesn’t mean you can’t starting creating scarves NOW.

It may seem silly to make scarves in the dead heat of summer, but it’s also a great time to prepare for colder weather, too.
