Send the Nifty Knitters to the Lion Brand Store

The Nifty Knitters is a 30 member charity knitting group that meets weekly at Senior Services of the Chathams. This group knits baby and chemo hats for local hospitals and lap rugs for veterans a Lyons VA Hospital.  Each year they produce 1,000-1,200 handmade items that are donated to needy individuals.

“We are honoring our knitters by selling the Shop for a Cause passes,” said Pam Mansfield Executive Director of Senior Services of the Chathams.  “The first 100 coupons we sell will be used to rent a bus to take the knitters to the Lion Brand yarn store in Carlsbadt, NJ  for lunch and a tour.” According to Mansfield earlier this year, Lion Brand Yarn donated a box of its yarn to the knitting group and invited the group to come tour its store.
