Twice in the past month KtB folks met to sort the railing covers in Michelle’s basement.
We de-tangled. We measured. We sorted. We re-bagged. There are 900 of these squeaky clean gems!
Now that they’re sorted, we’re wondering what to do with all these things…
That’s where you come in!
We’re looking for folks to help us re-purpose the railings. Here’s how to get involved:
- We have a deadline! We’ve been asked if we could re-purpose 70-some railings into scarves to give to YMCA residents this holiday season. (To read more: http://www.wpxi.com/news/news/materials-left-over-knit-bridge-made-scarves-resid/nbjLh/) And we have a bit of a tight deadline. We would like to embellish each scarf with Cosy’s bridge pattern and attach a recycled info card to each railing using yarn of course…
We need your help! Please join us Wednesday November 13th and/or Wednesday November 20th 6:30pm – 9:00pm in Sq. Hill to prepare the scarves for delivery on November 22nd. Email us firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
- More Blankets. Some of the railings are perfectly suited for blankets. We’ve sorted those out and are preparing “kits” so anyone can come and pick up a kit and then hand-sew the railing pieces into larger blankets that will be donated to shelters.
- Other Ideas – You Decide! We’ve had some great creative ideas for using the railings covers. Try some of these or help us come up with more ways to re-purpose them. Did we mention we have hundreds?? So don’t be shy folks!
