Got Sweaters?? Then You’ve Got Mittens!!

Saturday, October 30th we are gathering for a day full of fun, sewing, and surprises! We’ll be sewing all of our old sweaters into mittens, that will then be donated to the Columbus House, a shelter for the homeless in New Haven, CT.

We’d love for you to join us!

No sewing skills are required! Just bring your old sweaters! We can certainly use your help cutting, organizing, and gathering scraps!

If you can’t make our party, but you’d like to send us your sweaters, please email me at NikkiInStitches@gmail.com!

Thank you!

Together, lets warm the hands and hearts of Connecticut’s homeless this winter!!

  1. Here are a few more details on the Mitten Making Party!
    Hope to see you there!!

    Feel free to come anytime between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm. Stay as long as you’d like.

    If you are bringing sweaters to donate, please make sure they have been through the washer and dryer.

    If you have a sewing machine that you’d like to bring, we’d love for you to actually sew some mittens together.

    If not, we could certainly use your help cutting up the sweaters to make the mittens, pinning the pieces together, and keeping us organized as we go!
