If you can crochet, knit or sew you can join Team Yarn! Our mission is to provide the comfort of hats, scarves, shawls and afghans to people who are fighting cancer. 

My mom was diagnosed with Merkel Cell Carcinoma in 2011, and she began chemotherapy in the winter of 2012. We quickly learned that a head without hair grows cold very fast! I began crocheting chemo caps for her right away, as did my sister-in-law, and my mom was also blessed to receive handmade gifts from the cancer support center in her hospital. Each gift was loved and appreciated. It's amazing how meaningful such a simple gift can be.

So, I'm asking you to join me in passing that gift on to others. Team Yarn is a satellite group of Head Huggers, a national organization. We have extended our mission beyond hats, and we invite you to also donate scarves, shawls & afghans. We are in the Minneapolis area, and all items will be distributed to hospitals and local organizations to support cancer patients here in Minnesota.

The guidelines are simple. Items should be...
- handmade
- new
- washable
- free of smoke and pet hair
- wool is OK but not preferred, as it is often an irritant & allergen.

We will have an informal monthly meeting where you can drop off your projects or stay and craft with us

Upcoming Monthly Meeting:

Date: Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Time: Noon-3pm - Stay the whole time or just drop in!
