Need In-Person Instructor in NC

by Leighanna
(Wilsons Mills, NC )

Hello!


I work with a Senior's group who wants to start loom knitting, but we need someone to come help us get started. I've started a scarf at home (very simple), but I don't know enough to instruct them. If you're near the Raleigh/Clayton, NC area and would be willing to donate an hour or two of your time (about 10 minutes east of Clayton), please email me at LWORLEY@WILSONSMILLSNC.ORG. They are looking to sell these items at the Town's festival to raise money for them to take trips, as well as donating some of the scarves and hats to the Back Pack Kids program at our local school. And once we get started, we would certainly appreciate any used/leftover supplies anyone would like to donate as well! We work completely from donated money, time, and items. Nothing is too small! THANKS!!
