There is only two days before the screening of YARN: the movie, at the Komedia. We are already a little bunch of knitters who’ve planed to attend the event and we’d love to see as many people as possible joining us for the charity KAL.
As we already explained in our previous post, items knitted during the KAL will be donated to Emmaus, an international homeless charity. Through its tightly bound Community, Emmaus provide homes and work to those who spend sometimes several years of their life in the street, helping them to develop skills and rebuild self-respect in a supportive family environment. Their Brighton and Hove branch is located in Portslade Old Village, and we would strongly recommend you to visit their premises to see what a wonderful world they’re doing. Of course if you’re unable to attend the event but wish to donate, you can drop your knitted items at YAK anytime until the 23rd of October.
We would like to encourage anyone taking part in the KAL to share their projects on Instagram using the hashtag #brightonyarnmoviekal. In this way we hope to give plenty of visibility to the event and maybe incite more knitters to donate an item. The KAL only finishes on the 23rd so feel free to use this hashtag as much as you want in the meantime!
We’re looking forward to see you all on Sunday, and of course until then… Happy Knitting!
