This year, we are knitting items for distribution through the Stone Soup Cafe in downtown Fairbanks. Items will be placed on a shelf near the entrance, a few at a time, for patrons to adopt as needed. The Stone Soup Cafe mainly feeds adults, and more men than women, so keep that in mind as you knit. Hannah Hill with the Bread Line Inc. came and spoke to our group during the September SSK about their wonderful organization and it's impact on the community. Learn more about the Bread Line organization and get involved in their many programs to help locals find comfort, refuge and a fresh start in Fairbanks.

Hand knits can be donated by delivering to Inua Wool Shoppe by Nov 16th or by bringing them to our next SSK.
