Starting in December, Patricia's Yarns will be raffling off a blanket made by loyal shop customers to benefit the Hoboken Homeless Shelter. What could be better than our shop's knitting community helping our Hoboken community? Stop by Patricia's for details or to purchase your ticket (this blanket is gorgeous!).
Also, thank you for all of your purchases during our Shop Patricia's Yarns Event benefiting the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club! Once the sheep purchases are tallied (see below), we will be making a large donation soon!
To aid recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy, Patricia's Yarns will also be selling sheep - not real sheep, of course, but paper sheep. Stop in the shop and get a cute little sheep with your name on it. Each sheep is $1 (special sheep will be selling for $5) and all proceeds will benefit the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club which suffered extensive damage from the storm.
