A few months ago, I blogged about the Hope-A-Thon coming in July. Well, July is here and the Hope-A-Thon is just a couple weeks away!
Wall of Yarn in Freeport, IL is hosting the Halos of Hope-A-Thon - it's 24-hours of hat-making fun with lots of great events happening throughout the weekend. I'll be there all weekend helping out the Halos of Hope crew!
The event starts on Friday, July start on Friday, July 21 at 7 pm with a free lecture from Franklin Habit.
After the lecture, we'll head over to the yarn shop (it's about two blocks from where the lecture is being held), where the knitting and crochet fun begins. Stay for a few hours, stay all night, it's up to you! On Saturday, July 22, the Hope-A-Thon continues with more hat-making. Franklin will be teaching classes, with a portion of the class fee going directly to Halos of Hope. You'll need to sign up for those by calling 1-815-616-8402. You can read about Franklin's classes here.
Not taking classes with Franklin? Come hang with me at the shop and knit & crochet some hats! We'll be giving away prizes and have lots of other fun stuff going on. We'll be at the shop until 6pm working on our hats.
You all know that Halos of Hope and donating chemo caps is a cause close to my heart. I hope if you're in the area, you'll consider joining in the fun!
