Bring Your Needle, Yarn, and Pet Food: Lone Star College-Montgomery is Hosting Knit In for Charity

Published on: February 07, 2012

Lone Star College-Montgomery invites the entire knitting community to the annual Knit In on Saturday, February 25, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., in the atrium of the Music Hall (Building H).
 
This come-and-go event brings knitters and fiber artists together to share their skills while supporting a deserving charity, the Montgomery County Animal Shelter. Participants are asked to bring a dog or cat food item as a donation.
 
“This is a great opportunity to help a deserving charity, meet old friends, and make new ones,” said Linda Woodward, professor of art at LSC-Montgomery and event coordinator.
 
According to Woodward, Knit In has supported the shelter for several years, with the past record for dog and cat food donations at 700 pounds.
 
“Plus, it is always fun to see what our fellow fiber artists are working on,” added Woodward.
 
Parking is available adjacent to the Music Hall, so if knitters choose, they can bring their spinning wheel inside easily.
