In honor of the season of giving, we wanted to share a story about one of our favorite non-profits. Gilda’s Club is a warm, safe, and welcoming place for people whose lives have been affected by cancer. It's a place to come for support, to socialize, and share experiences. When we heard that there was a local "Knit Wits" group, we thought it was time to pay a visit with some Blue Sky Fibers yarn.
The Knit Wits is a knitting circle that meets at the Gilda's Club Clubhouse in Minnetonka, Minnesota on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. Gilda's Club offers endless programs to connect with others. The knitting group provides an easy and comfortable way for people to come and experience everything that this amazing organization has to offer. The group welcomes all Gilda’s Club members as well as family, friends, and caregivers. Are you interested but don't know how to knit? No worries! A member of the group will always be happy to teach you.
Once we learned about this fantastic group, we packed up some yarn and headed over to a Knit Wits get-together. Many of the knitters at Gilda’s Club were familiar with Blue Sky Fibers yarn. According to Executive Director, Libby Utter, the clubhouse erupted with loud excitement as box after box of yarn was unloaded. “It resembled the excitement of Christmas morning!”
Giving back is an important part of the club approach, and the knitters have taken this to heart. Much of the Blue Sky yarn has been lovingly knit into hats, prayer shawls, and blankets to be given away. This gesture of paying it forward is just one more way that the knitting circle loves, supports, and cares for the people it serves. Blue Sky Fibers is proud to have a small part in supporting such an uplifting and powerful organization.
