It’s a Thanksgiving Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to Betsy Ogden, Sarah Davis, Suzy Kelley, the Fiber Loft and its circle of knitters.
The Mission’s Christmas tradition of giving children hand knit hats and mittens began over 100 years ago. Betsy Ogden learned of the Mission’s need for hand-knit hats and mittens and recruited two friends, Sarah Davis and Suzy Kelley to help.
Suzy in turn recruited knitters at the Fiber Loft in Harvard, MA to join the effort. The Fiber Loft gave knitters a 20-percent discount on yarn and a simple hat pattern.
Together, this team of knitters donated over 110 items to help keep children warm and cozy this winter.
This is what community looks like.
