500 Knits For Refugees

Keep them coming!

500 Knits For Refugees Campaign

Let's come together and do a little good. 💜
Every day many busses arrive in Chicago carrying hundreds of refugees.
Children, families, people in need of help, comfort, care and safety.

As individuals, we may not be able to do much, but TOGETHER...together is a whole other story.
↪️Help us knit or crochet 500 hats, scarves and cowls to distribute out to the shelters.
As Midwesterners, you know a Chicago winter can be brutal. Most especially if you've never experienced such cold weather.

If you're local, come by and drop off your completed knits.
If you're mailing them to us, send to:
Dye Hard Yarns
C/O Chastity Dunlap
210 Harrison St. Unit A
Oak Park, IL. 60304
I know times are hard right now, and some of you may not have room in your lives to make anything.
If you can amplify this call for volunteers, that would be a HUGE help!
If you don't have a dedicated yarn stash, all Malabrigo Rios (worsted), Malabrigo Mecha, Universal Yarn Deluxe SW Worsted and Deluxe SW Bulky will be 15% off for volunteers w/code Knits4Refugees
I will include an easy hat or scarf pattern with your donation yarn. Be sure to fill out this online form.

We have in-store stitching hours every Thursday and Saturday from 2:30-4:30pm for any volunteers wanting to stitch in community. Can't make it in person? Come to our Wednesday Zoom Stitch instead!
