November Knit-a-thon to benefit H.O.M.E

On Saturday, November 19th, the KnitMaine-ia team and the Women of St. Margaret’s will be hosting their bi-annual Knit-a-Thon from 8am until 8pm. All proceeds will be donated to H.O.M.E, an Orland based organization that has been helping Mainers for 44 years. Homeworkers Organized for More Employment  is “dedicated to keeping and enhancing the quality of life for low-income and homeless families.” Through services, stewardship of resources, and shared responsibility, they address hunger, jobs, shelter, low-income housing, education, and self-sufficiency. 
All ages are welcome to participate for as little or as long as you would like. Knitting and crochet support, laughter, yummy food, and great friends! Don’t knit? Not a problem. We can teach you, or simply come to show your support of the event. Any and all handcrafters are welcome. Get sponsors ahead of time, or make a personal donation the day of the event. Mark your calendar for November 19th and meet us in the library of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Belfast. FMI contact Sara 978-325-0045, or Jillian
