If you are in the Lehigh Valley Area you are invited to join us at our first of two Palmerton Area Library Blanket Tying Events. The first event will take place on Thursday May 13 from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Join us as we will be preparing hand tied fleece blankets to donate to provide comfort and warmth to those patients who are undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
Here are the specifics:
What should I bring? Yourself, fleece material to make a blanket, or a no sew fleece blanket kit, a pair of scissors, and a friend!
I don’t have a blanket kit where can I get one? You can purchase one ahead of time at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores, or you can simply bring a $15.00 donation (to cover the cost of the blanket kit) with you and we will have a limited selection of kits available for you to purchase right at the library that night.
We have found when tying blankets, friendships flourish, conversations flow, and everyone has a lot of fun all for a great cause!
We are listening to you! This event is a result of the ideas you have brought to us. This event is perfect for those of you who have pets and wanted to make sure your blankets were prepared in a NO pet hair zone. Keep your ideas coming! We appreciate your input and are working hard to make sure we implement as many of your ideas as possible to become a reality.
*Mark your calendars! Our second Blanket Tying event will be a daytime event held on Friday June 11 from 10-11:30 a. m. We hope to see you there!
