Railing Redux – Take Two!

The railing re-purposing action continues at Knit the Bridge. Close to 100 railings-turned scarves were delivered to the Allegheny YMCA before Thanksgiving.

Railing Redux – We Need You!

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 […]

Westmoreland County Knits the Bridge

Community Leader and guest blogger Amy Rustic talks about Westmoreland involvement from the Greensburg area.  From the start Knit the Bridge has had great support from stitchers in every Southwestern Pennsylvanian county.  Amy’s group formed in the Greensburg area and were responsible for at least (and this could be a total underestimation) 20 panels and […]

Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival!
