Project 15 runs from January 15, 2011 to February 15, 2011.
Nest Maine is a grassroots effort to help people in need with hats, mittens, scarves, cowls, and other warm knitted items. From the blog, here is the information for and mission of Nest Maine:
“Nest seeks to connect knitters and other fiber enthusiasts with people in need of warm clothing for winter. In 2008 we distributed our first round of new donated hats, mittens, fingerless mitts, cowls and scarves in the Ft. Kent, Maine, area.”
Wool is happily accepted, as the winters are C O L D in Maine, but other fibers are alright as well, since some are allergic to wool.
Where to mail?
This project has finished. If you would like to send an item, please email me for the mailing address.
Make sure to include “From Sharing Our Gifts,” your name, and information about fiber care and content in the package and/or on the items you send.
SUPER ULTRA IMPORTANT FOR OUR TALLY: please make a post here when you send, and state what and how many. This way, we can keep track of our contributions.
