Knitting for American Girls

The USO is a privately funded organization. Guild member Barb is collecting American Girl Doll items for a basket for an auction to benefit the Sea-Tac Airport USO, which her son runs. Barb is collecting an American Girl wardrobe (knitting, crochet, sewing) for the well-dressed doll. If you would like to donate an item, please get it to Barb by August 12.

You can find dozens of patterns on Ravelry.

We Like Our New Home!

Our first meeting at the Puyallup Activity Center was a great success. Nice room, lots of space and light, friendly people at the center. Looks like we have a winner!

And lots of knitting.

Barb is asking for donations for an American Girl Doll knitwear basket. She is putting the basket together for an auction to support the USO, where her son works. She would like any contributions — knit, crochet, fabric — for the well-dressed American Girl Doll. You can find many patterns on Ravelry. Bring your American Girl fashions to Barb by August.
