Purple Hat Event 2012

September 19, 2012

It is that time of year again, when we all get our needles and hooks going for the purple hat event, to raise awareness about the Period of Purple Crying. The campaign works to raise awareness and help stop shaken baby syndrome. The very effective visual of ‘purple hats’ for babies  has been picked up by crafters young and old across the province. Last year folks at Baaad Anna’s made over 40 purple hats, and they were great!  We will be again trying to knit purple hats at our regular scheduled stitch n bitch!
Wednesday, October 3rd

6pm – 9pm

 

There will be coffee and delicious cupcakes, as well those who participate in the evening get 20% off all yarn purchases during the evening.  If you want to come with your finished hat, or drop it off, please do so anytime before the 3rd of October.  Here are some fantastic knitting and crochet hat patterns if you want to get started early!  Aviatrix,Cheri HatSwirl Hat, Warm Winter Hat,
