Create for love and kindness

Clean Themes

For the past several years WoolWinders Yarn shop has helped The Original Pancake House restaurants by donating handmade knits for their annual Christmas Day breakfast and giving to the less fortunate. We are blessed to continue this tradition. 

We are currently accepting donations of handmade hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, and socks. They also ask: 

Knit or Crochet scarves -
Length: 4 feet – 6 feet
Width: at least 6''
Yarn: Acrylic or washable wool preferred, for ease of care
Color: We are asking that most of the items be made in neutral colors, if possible, because many of the recipients are men who prefer plain dark colors, but we had a lot of families last year, too, so don't forget children's items.  If you are contributing multiple items, it would be nice to have a tag for each indicating whether the item is intended for a woman, man, or child to help the volunteers sort the gifts.

If you have items you would like to donate, please drop off your knitted goods to WoolWinders Annapolis or Rockville by Thursday, December 15th

Thank you in advance for all of your help and kindness! <3
