SciFi Chris here! Hoping your holidays were merry and bright, and your New Year will be full of colorful yarn and no major tangles!
Three Rivers Crochet’s annual charity fundraiser at the Wilkins School Community Center raised $2488 for Rwanda Knits and Pittsburgh Vets. Many, many thanks to the folks who bought items at the sale, made items for the sale, and worked the sale.
3RC isn’t slowing down in the new year! Our next charity contribution is donating items to the Butler County Humane Society fundraiser. We are making items to be sold at their February 13th event. Some items will be sold outright and some will be raffled off. Donations can be brought to the weekly 3RC meeting at Panera Bread near Magee Hospital. Items need to be brought in by Saturday, January 31st. What type of items? Things for pets, stuff for pet owners. For example, dog coats for walkies on cold days, doo bag holders, cat toys, and pet beds/mats. Ravelry.com is a superawesome place to find patterns for pet items.
Of course, 3RC folks also make items for themselves or their friends and family. Here’s some photos from the December 27th meeting.

As always, we meet every Saturday at the Panera near Magee Hospital, from 2pm to 5pm or whenever. Hope to see you there!
