Begging this Time

Thursday, March 8th, 2007

OK, I am going to break down and beg. The CityKidz Knit! program at Foster Community Center really really needs canvas bags for the kids’ take-home projects. They can have advertising on them.

citykidz03072007web20.jpgI just can not send kids home with plastic bags and needles, they lose the needles on the sidewalk on the way home… and then a child who doesn’t know the safety rules about knitting has this pointy thing to play with. Not good. I don’t have a single bag left in the house (not even the heavy-duty plastic lunch bags i was given which are better than cheap plastic grocery bags).

If you live in Lansing, you can leave things for me at the office of Foster Center. They are open from 8:30am to 8:30pm (if nobody is in the office after 5:30pm, they are usually watching kids across the hall in the game room). They are at 200 N. Foster Avenue on the East Side near Frandor… four blocks west of 496, one block north of Michigan Avenue (turn at Blimpies), in a lovely old brick school building.

You can also mail things to CityKidz Knit! c/o Foster Center, 200 N. Foster Ave., Lansing, MI 48912 USA.

Or not. No obligation, but I know that some people have jobs that take them to many conferences/trade shows a year and they end up with piles of these bags that they do not need. I would put the bag in the hands of a young knitter, and that’s a very honorable place for the bag to go.

Thank you for your consideration.
